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.

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.
The continuation of Syndrome E - characters interaction and multiple twists and turns of the storyline.
The Boys from Brazil ...
I can't imagine a "scene" in the dialog ... as it flowed and one tale that never missed a beat.
Yes, there were many --- but to mention any one of them, would be a spoiler.
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.
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.
Lots of intertwining plots, leads you down one path, and all comes to a final conclusion.
I really enjoyed listening to Gildart, he narrated the story extremely well, with lots of different voices for characters.
I could have done if I had have had the time to do so.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love all of them.
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.
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.
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.
