Publisher's Summary

The shocking sequel to the runaway international best-seller Syndrome E.

Syndrome E's Lucie Henebelle and Inspector Sharko have reunited to take on the case of the brutal murder of Eva Louts, a promising graduate student who was killed while working at a primate research center outside Paris. But what at first appears to be a vicious animal attack soon proves to be something more sinister. What was Eva secretly researching? Was she tracking three fanatical scientists who control a 30,000-year-old virus with plans to unleash it on the world?

With his unmatched ability to inject cutting-edge science into his novels, Franck 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-slick 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.

    Any additional comments?

    I am so excited to have stumbled upon this book series & I beg Audible to translate the remaining books from this Author.

    I have thousands of books on Audible & been part of this for 15 years. I can not express how cool this book (syndrome E) is. If you like Robert Galbraith, Michael Crichton or Michael Robotham... or even he Da Vinci Code. This book series is one of the best there is. I barely write reviews, but again, PLEASE AUDIBLE, bring more of his books into the English language.

    Listen to this book & Syndrome E.

    Story
    "Finished in 2 days!"
    What did you love best about Bred to Kill?

    The continuation of Syndrome E - characters interaction and multiple twists and turns of the storyline.


    What other book might you compare Bred to Kill to and why?

    The Boys from Brazil ...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't imagine a "scene" in the dialog ... as it flowed and one tale that never missed a beat.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, there were many --- but to mention any one of them, would be a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    Narration was perfection. Story was plausible though complicated. Being a fan of dark psychological novels, -this one intrigued me. Reminded me of Salander and Blomkvist's relationship in the Millennium Series.

    Story
    "Another Great Listen"
    Would you listen to Bred to Kill again? Why?

    Yes, it is a great story, well written, kept my interest from start to finish. I loved the characters with all their flaws, I could really identify with them. This is the second book I have listened to by Franck Thilliez. I thoroughly enjoyed the first as well.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Lots of intertwining plots, leads you down one path, and all comes to a final conclusion.


    What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed listening to Gildart, he narrated the story extremely well, with lots of different voices for characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have done if I had have had the time to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book to be translated. If you enjoy a great, edge of your seat, story with characters with depth, I highly recommend it.

    "Just ok"

    The reading was excessively dramatic. The story was not. The villains were too villainous. But I love the characters Sharko and Lucy. I'll listen to other books by Thilliez. This is my second book by him and I like the mix of science and science fiction.

    Story
    "An evolution love story"

    The author loves evolution far more than people. His obvious atheism comes shining through with this diatribe of faith in an unproven theory. I found its lengthy soliloquies boring and counter productive to the plot.

    It just wasn't very good.

    Story
    "Great Book; Very Interesting"
    Would you listen to Bred to Kill again? Why?

    I would for sure. This book is just as interesing as the book that comes before it, Syndrome E; the crime itself is a different set up, but the way it's written is just wonderful.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It did. The crime is super interesting; it goes down a different path from the one in Syndrome E but its just as interesting and there are so many twists that make you question what you think you know from deducing on your own.


    Which character – as performed by Gildart Jackson – was your favorite?

    I love all of them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh yes! Seeing how the relationship between Franck and Lucie has changed from Syndrome E to this book; and how it reopens during this book. You also see a bit more of Lucie's mother Marie; the two of them have a very touching moment.

    Story
    "Great author!"

    This is the second book in the series. The story begins with a mystery for the human race that started eons ago. It really a good read and can't get enough of the author.
    Wish we can get more of his books translated into English.

    Story
    "I can see Eric Cantana as Sharko."

    Liked this one BETTER than the first, Syndrome E. That was a good intro to the two main characters. Bred To Kill moves at a faster pace and the plot is more interesting by far. Hope there are more to come with these characters.
