Killer Instinct (The Naturals #2) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
November 4, 2014
Disney-Hyperion
Hardcover, 386 pgs

What it’s about:

This sequel to The Naturals, which introduced readers to an elite FBI program for teams with innate crime-solving skills, picks up shortly after the end of the first book. Cassie, who is a profiler, longs for some calm and time to focus on cold cases. FBI higher-ups have the same idea, but when a serial killer hits the scene all eyes are on the teens. The reason? The killer is copying Dean’s incarcerated father. Despite being ordered to stay away, the Naturals are drawn into another dangerous active case. As they delve into the twisted mind of a killer they put not only themselves, but their entire program in jeopardy. In their minds the risks are worth it if they can help their friend.

Why you might like it:

Are you a fan of shows like Criminal Minds or Dexter? You might enjoy the FBI procedural aspects and/or the serial killer elements of this series. Do you like a story with crazy twists and turns? Killer Instinct will keep you guessing until the end (the same goes for The Naturals…I did not see that ending coming!) Do you like smart, sassy, and often tense team dynamics? The members of this elite group are so different from each other and they all work hard to keep their pasts a secret. So, plenty of intrigue in the house alone! Throw in disturbing crime scenes and you have one exciting book!
