Horn Book Review

A serial killer murders a girl in a small Oregon town, and teenage FBI trainee Tessa must use her genetic ability to mimic another person's appearance to find the killer. What this sci-fi murder mystery lacks in character depth, it makes up for in suspense and action. While the comic-book romance is by-the-numbers, this is an intense, engaging story reminiscent of Twin Peaks and X-Men. (c) Copyright 2014.
