Synopsis: [ Young Adult Fiction (Ages 12 - 17) ]
[Read by Emily Woo Zeller]
She's not evil, but she has certain . . . urges.
Lane is a typical teenager - loving family, good grades, after-school 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. Why? 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.
Amazon Exclusive: A Q&A with Crimespree Magazine and S. E. Green, Author of Killer Instinct
Q: What was the inspiration for your protagonist, Lane?
A: Believe it or not, I am my own inspiration for Lane. Though I don’t act like Lane, I do tend to think like her. Very black and white. Right and wrong. Wanting justice for those who deserve it. Eye for an eye. I guess you can say I live vicariously through Lane. Everyone does have a dark side.
Q: Lane has been compared to a young Dexter. How would you respond to this?
A: I am big fan of shows like Hannibal, The Following, and Dexter. So when I decided to write a new series, the serial killer theme was a natural fit for me. Yes, many people are calling my series Dexter for teens, and I can totally understand that. Lane does share similarities with Hannibal, Dexter, and Joe from The Following.
Q: Lane is a complicated character. Was it hard to write a person who is so emotionless?
A: Through no fault of her own, Lane is most definitely a complicated character. I found her a very easy one to write, though. As a writer it is important to know your strengths and your weaknesses. Lane is all about my strengths. The true challenge for me is to one day write a book that tests all my weaknesses. I cringe just thinking about it.
Q: Are there any plans for this to become a series?
A: Yes! The sequel, Killer Within, comes out in May 2015.
Q: What made you decide to take Lane down the vigilante route instead of killing the “bad guys” she stalks?
A: Lane does walk a fine line. She wants to right the wrongs, but her conscience won’t let her take it beyond a certain point. She can’t and won’t justify making someone pay for anything other than what they have done. For example, she targets a rapist, has every chance to kill him, but decides to handle him in a different manner. . . .
