Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Bred to Kill by Franck Thilliez. But what 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 thirty-thousand-year-old virus with plans to unleash it into the world? With his unmatched ability to inject cutting-edge science into his novels, 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.

Was this a sequel? And if so, was the first one better then this one? I really enjoyed this one. If you like this one, I think you would like Syndrome E as well. Syndrome E explains the relation …more It is a sequel; the first book is called Syndrome E. Syndrome E explains the relationship Franck and Lucie better in the sense that you get all the back story to how Lucie went from having twins to one daughter.
The crime that Syndrome E centers around deals with a mystery film, how the mind works, and government cover-ups as well as some other things; so how much you like the story overall depends on your feelings about that sort of stuff.
Personally, I don't love stories with 'conspiracy theories' or anything like that; but I absolutely loved Syndrome E and I find the crime in Bred To Kill just as interesting even though they're quite different.

Right in the middle of the dialogue Not working for me. May 07, Rebecca McNutt rated it really liked it Shelves: crime , french , france , fiction , thriller , mystery. Maybe that's just my hobby obsession?
I also sort of miss Euginie, she was an interesting character even though she wasn't real. I also imagined the way that the story would continue, which made me have pointless expectations for Bred to Kill , and even though it's still a great book, I just think that maybe it could've been different.
View 1 comment. Bred to Kill was released previously as Gataca in several languages and it has now made it's was to an American audience. An unsung hero award for this title goes to the translator Mark Polizzotti as his work to cross languages helps this book shine just like I'm sure it did in its native language.
This novel is an excellent combination of cutting edge science and fast paced thriller. The scientific jargon is approached in a layman's fashion to help the reader adapt to the premise set forth. The shear plausibility of this story makes it even more chilling. The combination of unknown genetic markers and the ease of setting up your DIY genetics lab opens the door for a very scary future. There are plenty of twists to keep the staunchest thriller reader engaged.
The humanity present in these characters is the driving force for me behind this novel. These people seem real and you want them to succeed, pray for them to succeed. The loss these two characters carry with them is palpable and infects the reader just as much as it does the characters themselves. A very fine novel whose only fault seems to be a little too much scientific explanation near the end that breaks up the pace and has you wanting to skip a page or two to get back into the lives of the characters.
I prefered this book to the first one and by far. First, because I've learned a lot of things on genetic - thank you to the meticulous research done by the author and his real gift to vulgarise complex concepts - then, because I loved to meet again with Lucie and Franck and last because the rythm never faltered and I love that! We find again Lucie and Franck who succeed once again in drawing their strength from their weaknesses and their rage to lead to end their investigation.
I am very surprise I prefered this book to the first one and by far. I am very surprised by the accuracy of Lucy's portrait, knowing that the author is a man. Some of the questions that Lucie arises seemed legitimate. The author obviously has a good understanding of the female psyche! As for Frank, I was sorry to see him in an even more pitiable condition than in Syndrome [E] yes, it's possible! His redemption goes through his support to Lucy.
In short, very realistic and well-written characters. Another strong point of the novel is the fierce struggle of a cop to bring down Frank. Honestly, there was a moment - or two - where I really wanted to hit him! The relationships between the characters are so well written that when that cop lashes out at Franck, we believe it, we're experiencing it and we are not happy!
Regarding the story, I loved it! What I like in a good thriller is that the explanation is plausible, credible and intelligible. Here, the three qualities are present. Thilliez explains genetics in a clear and understandable way, and the facts are proven. So - in my opinion - it's a guarantee of quality. And then - again in that story - we travel, this time in Brazil.
That's when I thought that the author does not fancy heat! Whether in Egypt for the previous volume or here in Brazil, its painful description of the heat makes me think he prefers colder temperatures. But hats off to the way he made me feel sweaty! The pace of this novel is intense, it's a race to find a group of individuals who show a violence that wasn't seen since Cro-magnon and the mastermind behind it all. Each track leads to a bad surprise and drags them along, taking us with them in an investigation as dangerous as scientific.
Sep 30, Gracey rated it it was ok. I only gave this book two stars because while I thought the idea was interesting, the writing was not good for me. And the story itself sort of fell apart towards the end as well. And the ending itself was terrible - hated it.
I know the translator of this book has worked on a lot of translations from French to English, but I can't help but feel that something was lost in translation. That's another problem I had with this book; the science was very dense and because I'm not a geneticist, I was lost a lot. Maybe someone with a stronger science background would have a better chance at understanding, but I wasn't even sure I understood the premise half the time.
And then it completely went off the rails, IMO and, again, the ending was terrible. Sorry, but I can't recommend. Nov 07, Elisa rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads. I received a free advanced copy from Goodreads First Reads. Thank you, Viking!
