About the book
In the internationally bestselling Syndrome E, Franck Thilliez explored the origins of violence through cutting-edge and popular science. Thilliez returns to this exciting territory in Bred to Kill, the shocking sequel to Syndrome E, which again injects ground-breaking science into a mesmerizing thriller that moves at breakneck speed.
In Bred to Kill, Lucie Henebelle and Inspector Sharko have reunited to take on a terrifying case. When a promising grad student is found brutally killed at a primate research center outside of Paris, the down-and-out Sharko is called in to wrap up what’s thought to be a straightforward crime. But what first appears to be a vicious animal attack soon proves to be something more sinister. Who would have wanted Eva dead, and why?
Though Lucie, still reeling from the tragic death of one of her twin daughters, is on leave from the police, Sharko feeds her information on the case. They begin to comb through Eva’s research for leads and are soon faced with a chilling portrait of the crime, one that becomes more disturbing as each additional clue is uncovered. Though Eva claimed to be researching the genetics of left-handedness in monkeys, she was secretly digging into something far more complex and dangerous. Why was she visiting prisoners, all left-handed, all convicted of ghastly crimes – including the man responsible for the death of Lucie’s daughter? Could Eva have possibly been on the track of three fanatical scientists who control a thirty-thousand-year-old virus with plans to unleash it into the world?
With his unmatched ability to inject innovative science into his novels, Thilliez draws on genetics, paleontology, and the dark side of human nature to create this smart, adrenaline-fueled thriller. Bred to Kill moves from the rain-slicked streets of Paris to the heart of the Alps to the remote Amazon jungle as Lucie and Sharko work to solve the murder—before whoever killed Eva comes for them.
