Jeff discovers he's a serial killer clone-and he's got to track down others like him before it's too late. A thrilling YA companion to S&S Touchstone's Cain's Blood , releasing simultaneously. This dark, literary thriller is a story about blood: specifically, the DNA of the world's most notorious serial killers, captured and cloned by the Department of Defense to develop a new "breed" of bio-weapons. The program is now in Stage Three-with dozens of young male clones from age ten to eighteen kept and monitored at a private facility without any realization of who they really are. Some are treated like everyday kids. Others live prescribed lives to replicate the upbringing of their DNA donors. All wonder why they can't remember their lives before age ten. When security is breached and the most dangerous boys are set free by the now-insane scientist who created them, only one young man can help find the clones before their true genetic nature grows even more horrific than the original models: a fifteen-year-old boy, an every-boy...who has just learned that he is the clone of Jeffrey Dahmer.
