KILLER INSTINCT by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Copy Cat

After their catastrophe with (agent turned serial killer) Locke last summer, the Naturals had a short reprieve. They had a chance to solve a kidnapping and rescue a young girl. But celebrations were cut short when Agent Sterling arrived to take the reins to keep them in line, which means no more active cases for the team. But a body was found in a university grounds, and the M.O. is very familiar to Dean. It would seem that his dad now has a copy cat on the loose.
“Maybe, to do what you and I do, we have to have a little bit of the monster in us.”
For me, to simply say that KILLER INSTINCT is a good read is an understatement. When I read the 1st installment, THE NATURALS, it had been my favorite YA Mystery for 2013. This series is getting better, and I have no problem highly recommending it.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes managed to keep every element together –the suspense, the careful fleshing of characters, and even that love triangle I was not very keen about last time. I truly admire her for keeping the reader at the edge of the seat and pulling up a huge twist at the end.

A job well is done. I will eagerly wait for the next installment.
