What an interesting concept for a book: take the scariest serial killers(at least their blood), a scary group of scientist that are creating a military weapon. What could possibly go wrong with this picture?

Holy cow is this book intense or what?! It had been a while since a book got me scared the way Cain's Blood did. Needless to say I loved it! It's a mix between Michael Crichton and John Ajvide Lindqvist. In Cain's Blood, a bunch of scientists working for government development and research come across a way of cloning the worst serial killers the world has seen. Now, several of them have been successfully cloned; like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Albert Fish and David Berkowitz among others. When things get out of hand and the lead scientist goes bonkers and releases the worst of the batch, Shawn Castillo -ex Special Ops- is called in to clean up the mess. Teamed up with one of Jeffrey Dahmer's clones, Castillo goes out in the most gruesome man hunt ever. In a race to catch and stop these sick, demented clones, Jeff and Castillo find themselves in serious danger and fearing for their own lives. This is a hell of a read: dark, gory, scary and frighteningly real. It kept me up more than one night. ( )

So the government decides to clone serial killers to use them as bio-weapons. What could be wrong with that? A few of them escape the facility and Shawn Castillo is sent to neutralize the situation.

A great premise; interesting characters and enough action and thought provoking ideas make this one hell of a debut. I have to say I couldn’t put the book down. ( )

9. Cain’s Blood, Geoffrey Girard
(September 3; Touchstone)

There’s high-concept, and then there’s high-concept, and Geoffrey Girard’s debut novel––about teen clones of renowned serial killers set loose upon the world––is about as high-concept as it gets. Mixing hardcore science with a breakneck pace, Cain’s Blood is like taking a bitchin’ college class in madness and murder.
