Waiting on Wednesday 08/29/18

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Murder Theory by Andrew Mayne (February 5, 2019 by Thomas & Mercer)

In the past year I’ve become a huge fan of Andrew Mayne, and I make it no secret that I’m obsessed with Dr. Theo Cray! Murder Theory is the third book The Naturalist series and I can’t wait until I can get my hands on it.

“The desire to kill is becoming contagious in this riveting novel of conceivable mad science by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Naturalist.

Computational biologist and serial-killer hunter Dr. Theo Cray receives an off-the-record request from the FBI to investigate an inexplicable double homicide. It happened at the excavation site where a murderer had buried his victims’ remains. In custody is a forensic technician in shock, with no history of aggression. He doesn’t remember a thing. His colleagues don’t even recognize the man they thought they knew. But an MRI reveals something peculiar. And abnormal.

What on earth made him commit murder?

After discovering that a mysterious man has been stalking crime scenes and stealing forensic data, Cray has a radical and terrifying theory. Now he must race against time to find a darker version of himself: a scientist with an obsession in pathological behavior who uses his genius not to catch serial killers—but to create them.”

  1. Ooh that sounds chilling- a version of himself as the enemy? Almost reminds me of Dark Matter by Blake Crouch in a way, even though the premise is totally different. Nice one!!


    • Yeah, it makes me think Theo will be going against someone very much like himself – similar analytical mind, with the same skills and obsession for statistics. It might not be quantum physics or parallel world stuff, but still disturbing and scary!


  2. The Naturalist is one that slipped through my fingers, though I would like to read this series, as it sounds excellent and I love good murder mysteries. Thank you for sharing:)
