    If you're willing to suspend your disbelief, you'll be treated to '80s-era Silence of the Lambs, where the lead roles are held by teens. Do it. You won't be disappointed. Emma Lewis—18, white, and fiery—is approached by FBI Agent Cooper, who has an unexpected proposition. He'd like her to be part of a team conducting interviews with imprisoned teen serial killers. Though skeptical, she agrees to join Agent Cooper and teammate Travis Bell, a biracial Latinx teen, at Quantico. So why Emma and Travis? Both have personal experience with serial killers: Emma, once a near victim, and Travis, son of a murdered U.S. marshal. The stakes skyrocket when Emma and Travis' project becomes entwined with an active, potentially young killer—the Berryville Butcher. Readers entranced by Mindhunter will eat this up, and Marney provides them with layered, damaged characters, well-executed twists, skin-crawling details of murder scenes, and a brutally charged atmosphere as the story reaches its climax. All signs point to Emma and Travis working another case, which is excellent news for this thriller's inevitable fans. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
