Title: Project Cain
Author: Geoffrey Girard
Series: n/a
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: September 3, 2013

Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff’s life changes forever when the man he’d thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called ‘Project CAIN’.

There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer’s DNA. There are others like Jeff—those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy . . . even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.

When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it’s too late. But will he catch the ‘monsters’ before becoming one himself?


Why I'm waiting:  "The summer of killing begins."  Have you ever read a creepier line?  I have a strange fascination with serial killers.  (My husband even got me into that new show The Following with Kevin Bacon.)  This book sounds terribly exciting and I'm very intrigued by the cloning aspect, and not just because they're using the DNA of murderers.  I hope this one lives up to my expectations!

What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  1. I love serial killers as well, especially Dexter. I tried The Following but I just could not get into it. I am super excited for this book though and it happens to be one of my WOW books this week too! :-D
