“Maybe it wasn’t me…If I was terrified and fighting for my life, the first chance I got, I would go to the door.”
Unless I was looking for a weapon. Unless I had a reason to believe I could fight and win.
I finally got around to finishing Jennifer Lynn Barnes’s final installment in The Naturals series. Bad Blood pits an unconventional team of teens working for the FBI against a group of serial killers, resulting in a fast-paced thrill ride. In this excerpt, the protagonist is profiling a kidnapping victim in an attempt to understand the crime scene. Read my review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From the Goodreads Synopsis:
“When Cassie Hobbes joined the FBI’s Naturals program, she had one goal: uncover the truth about her mother’s murder. But now, everything Cassie thought she knew about what happened that night has been called into question. Her mother is alive, and the people holding her captive are more powerful—and dangerous—than anything the Naturals have faced so far. As Cassie and the team work to uncover the secrets of a group that has been killing in secret for generations, they find themselves racing a ticking clock.
The bodies begin piling up, the deaths hit closer and closer to home, and it soon becomes apparent that this time, the Naturals aren’t just hunting serial killers.
They’re being hunted themselves.“
