THE SCARLET LETTER meets MINORITY REPORT When a teenage girl's genetic test proves she's destined to become a killer, she can no longer trust anyone...including herself. A chilling, suspenseful tale from bestselling author Sophie Jordan.
When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. She was the perfect high school senior: Homecoming queen with a loving boyfriend and a bright future at Juilliard. But now she is spurned as a killer and uninvited from her prestigious private high school-even though she's never hurt a fly. Her parents are afraid of her and her boyfriend Zac completely abandons her. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.
Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life and tells her that she alone controls her actions-not the code embedded into her DNA. But even if she can learn to trust him, can Davy trust herself?
Tackling intriguing questions about free will, fate, and self-doubt, Sophie Jordan's newest series is filled with taut suspense, gripping action, and breathless romance.
