Killer Instinct by Shannon Greenland
Publication Date: May 6th 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse

From Goodreads:

She’s not evil, but she has certain… urges.

Lane is a typical teenager. Loving family. Good grades. Afterschool job at the local animal hospital. Martial arts enthusiast. But her secret obsession is studying serial killers. She understands them, knows what makes them tick.


Because she might be one herself.

Lane channels her dark impulses by hunting criminals—delivering justice when the law fails. The vigilantism stops shy of murder. But with each visceral rush the line of self-control blurs.
And then a young preschool teacher goes missing. Only to return… in parts.
When Lane excitedly gets involved in the hunt for “the Decapitator,” the vicious serial murderer that has come to her hometown, she gets dangerously caught up in a web of lies about her birth dad and her own dark past. And once the Decapitator contacts Lane directly, Lane knows she is no longer invisible or safe. Now she needs to use her unique talents to find the true killer’s identity before she—or someone she loves—becomes the next victim…

Why I Can't Wait: Oooh, this thriller sounds super exciting! I love the hunt for a killer and this main character is obsessed with them. So curious on how her vigilantism can blur the line towards murder. I can't wait to see how her past ties in to it all too.

    This is a another great pick Sara! I’m totally loving the cover, how only part of her face is visible and how awesome does the premise sound? I don’t think I’ve come across a book quite like this. I am very excited for this book to be released already!
