5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum crime mystery and thriller genres are full of protagonists who claim they will go to any lengths to stop a killer, but computation biologist Dr Theo Cray will give them all a run for their money in this totally insane and off the wall third volume of Andrew Mayne s Naturalist series Once our hero is on the trail of a serial killer, but this time, he may have met his match You might even say that Theo is hunting for a dark version of himself, a difficult quandary that forces him to confront some uncomfortable truths about his own psyche.
Shortly after the events of Looking Glass, Theo has resumed his work on top secret projects for the government However, the repercussions of his last investigation haunt him still One day, he is approached by an FBI agent whose colleagues had been working on the site of wh In Murder Theory, Computational biologist and serial killer hunter Dr Theo Cray is back after slaying dragons and killing monsters in the previous two novels Well, okay, no dragons and the monsters were serial killers Now there is something strange lurking in the dig around the last murder site, something that is making seemingly normal people kill and kill violently While the local cops and even the FBI are quick to write this off as a one time psychotic break, Cray begins to see a pattern of behavior that could be viral based and, if it is, could spell potential problems if it falls into the wrong hands aka WMD used by any government or military As Cray searches for the causes, the how and why of the virus and how it could be spread, he begins to trip ever so lightly over the line of good and evil and, at times, appears a little closer to the monster he once was The Desire To Kill Is Becoming Contagious In This Riveting Novel Of Conceivable Mad Science By The Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Of The NaturalistComputational 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 AbnormalWhat 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 A virus that turns normal everyday Joe s into a murderer Sign me up I loved this book Dr Theo Cray is not a cop, detective, or F.
I He s a sometime teacher, who also works in a lab He s good with numbers and computational stuff that boggles my mind He occasionally finds murderers that others can t find, or sometimes don t even know are active But, Theo sees patterns that others can t see It makes for one heck of a ride I also enjoy that he s always spouting facts It s all very informative and never boring.
This book wasn t as scary as the last book, but it s definitely one worth reading I m looking forward to the next Author Andrew Mayne is someone I d be willing to bet is either fascinating to talk to, or very long winded My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers, Thomas Mercer for allowing me to read and review this book.
5 stars I enjoyed this book but it wasn t as good as the first two in the series It wasn t as funny and it was science laden Theo does go above and beyond to solve the crime particularly at Butcher s Creek.
I am not a Minion of Evil I am Upper Management Unknown Andrew Mayne has sliced open quite the watermelon here Thickly separated into juicy portions with a trail of sticky seeds Dr Theo Cray wears his newly found reputation of serial killer killer like an impressive tattoo It ventures into a dark universe well beyond his usual territory of computational biologist Mayne introduced us to Theo in The Naturalist which is the first book in this series I had Looking Glass 2 up at bat, but so like me on Christmas morning, I couldn t wait and jumped into Murder Theory 3 Mayne fills in the missing pieces with just enough backstory.
Our story opens with a crew of FBI forensic agents sifting through the crime scene in the aftermath of a previous serial killer The agents have reported flu like symptoms Two of them die within Solid story, but missing the creepy factor I loved from the other books This is the 3rd book in The Naturalist series and while it is still enjoyable, it is my least favorite Basic Plot Dr Theo Cray finds himself embroiled in another case of trying to find a serial killer He is just coming off finding the Toy Man and now something bad has happened at the site of the Toy Man s killing ground A couple people are dead and a forensic tech is a suspect The tech would normally be the least likely person to be suspected of violence, but Theo suspects that something or someone has altered his brain And whatever caused a violent streak in this tech, might be effecting others.
Starting with the positive, I really like the Theo character He is smart and quirky and doesn t shy away from getting involved in some dan I ve read all the books published in the Jessica Blackwood series by Andrew Mayne But, Murder Theory is the first I ve read in The Naturalist series And, I have to admit that at first didn t Dr Theo Cray, a computational biologist and serial killer hunter, rock my boat the same way that Jessica Blackwood does Not a bad story at all, just not on the same interested level and it got a bit scientific now and then Then, BAM one of the best scenes ever happened that pretty much changed how I felt for the book And, I can t write about it since you know spoilers However, I will just say this, this is by far the most interesting way to capture a serial killer Seriously, totally mental and I loved it After that, I just felt that yup this is a series for me Any guy that can do something like this is my kind of gu
OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFGHoly cliffhanger.
Dr Theo Cray is a very different protagonist than I typically see in murder mysteries He s a computational biologist and in the prior two books, he s used his scientific methods to track down serial killers As someone working with him says You re like a time traveler trying to explain forensics to a bunch of medieval monks who still think in terms of humors and vital essences Also, the premise of this book is very different than the normal murder mystery Something at the burial site for the victims of the prior book is causing the technicians working there to become violent Then Dr Cray finds another situation of what he starts calling the Hyde virus as in Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde What is the same and is starting to wear thin is the whole Dr Cray against the government scenario Andrew Ma
