Synopsis:

Hasn't he lived long enough? Why not? I could take him like a thief in the night.

This is how the Thief thinks. He serves death, the vacuum, the unknown. He’s always waiting. Always there.

Seventeen-year-old Nina Barrows knows all about the Thief. She’s intimately familiar with his hunting methods: how he stalks and kills at random, how he disposes of his victims’ bodies in an abandoned mine in the deepest, most desolate part of a desert.

Now, for the first time, Nina has the chance to do something about the serial killer that no one else knows exists. With the help of her former best friend, Warren, she tracks the Thief two thousand miles, to his home turf—the deserts of New Mexico.

But the man she meets there seems nothing like the brutal sociopath with whom she’s had a disturbing connection her whole life. To anyone else, Dylan Shadwell is exactly what he appears to be: a young veteran committed to his girlfriend and her young daughter. As Nina spends more time with him, she begins to doubt the truth she once held as certain: Dylan Shadwell is the Thief. She even starts to wonder . . . what if there is no Thief?



This book was creepy, but in a good way. The action and suspense left me on edge. I tend to avoid horror/suspense because I get stressed from it easily. But The Killer In Me was different. I loved the suspense. It was thrilling actually. 
I really enjoyed the descriptions of the desert and the desolate landscapes.  I could imagine myself getting lost in this setting. The word choice was great in describing the setting. I almost got lost at one point because I was so engaged. Overall I really enjoyed this one. I liked Nina. She was dark and mysterious and I really enjoyed it. I want dark and strange in YA. 

Overall I would give this book 4 stars.

I was raised in the wilds of New York by lovely, nonviolent parents who somehow never managed to prevent me from staying up late to read scary books. I now work at an alt-weekly newspaper in Vermont, where my favorite part of the job is, of course, reviewing scary books and movies. The Killer in Me is my first novel.
