There is only one word that comes to mind after reading a book of this magnitude: explosive. Also, on second thought, incredible works as well. This is a novel that is nearly epic in its scope, and in reality, it covers a mere two and a half, perhaps three weeks in the lives of two very unlikely heroes on an epic quest to save humanity. It is a story that, quite literally, drew me in and did not let go. It is, quite honestly, both exquisite in its telling and terrifying in its concept.
Jeff Jacobson thought he had a good life. His entire existence was changed the day his father walked out the door, leaving him with nothing more than $1,000 and a notebook with a bunch of notes. Oh, and one very important message, that Jeff is a clone created from serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. When an unlikely hero by the name of Shawn Castillo appears looking for Jeff's father, he takes Jeff, thinking Jeff may know where he is. Yet it's obvious that Castillo has his own agenda. As we follow Jeff and Castillo on a gruesome trek across the country in search of more clones and a super secret biological weapon that has been stolen, we will explore the depths of human emotion, as well as the darkness of the human heart. This is not for the faint of heart.
A thrilling YA companion to S&S Touchstone's Cain's Blood, releasing simultaneously.
Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago.
But Jeff's life changes forever when the man he'd thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called 'Project CAIN.' There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer's DNA. There are others like Jeff -- those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy... even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.
When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it's too late.
But will he catch the 'monsters' before becoming one himself?
