22gigantes.com - Hasn't he lived long enough? Why not? I could take him like a thief in the night. This is how the Thief thinks. He serves death, the vacuum, the unknown. He's always waiting. Always there. Seventeen-year-old Nina Barrows knows all about the Thief. She's intimately familiar with his hunting methods: how he stalks and kills at random, how he disposes of his victims' bodies in an abandoned mine in the deepest, most desolate part of a desert. Now, for the first time, Nina has the chance to do something about the serial killer that no one else knows exists. With the help of her former best friend, Warren, she tracks the Thief two thousand miles, to his home turf—the deserts of New Mexico. But the man she meets there seems nothing like the brutal sociopath with whom she's had a disturbing connection her whole life. To anyone else, Dylan Shadwell is exactly what he appears to be: a young veteran committed to his girlfriend and her young daughter. As Nina spends more time with him, she begins to doubt the truth she once held as certain: Dylan Shadwell is the Thief. She even starts to wonder . . . what if there is no Thief? From debut author Margot Harrison comes a brilliantly twisted psychological thriller that asks which is more terrifying: the possibility that your nightmares are real . . . or the possibility that they begin and end with you?

By Erin @ Readingwithwrin "A girl who sees murders in her dreams, murders that happen in real life"This is a story told in duel perspectives by two characters Nina and Warren.Nina was adopted by her mom at ten months old and soon thereafter they moved to Vermont where they have lived a normal life. Except for the part where Nina has seen somebody else in her dreams since she was little. Things were pretty normal in her dreams, but one night things turned sinister and she has never been the same since. This is when she started calling the person in her dreams the Thief because of what he did to others that was so calculated and covered that he would never get caught.Then we have Warren who was Nina’s childhood best friend, but they grew apart when Nina started acting different."I'll do my best to protect Nina from her obsession, her nightmares, but I won't be pulled in."With Warren’s help Nina is able to start feeling better about what she’s seen and thinks that maybe she isn’t so crazy after all. Not only do these two find out where the thief lives. Things really start to take a turn though when they go on a road trip and Nina starts forming a plan on how she plans to deal with this thief and to stop her dreams forever. It sounded so simple to do, until she learns how she knows the thief and how he just might not be as sinister as her dreams make him seem."The key is to pretend to see him the way he sees himself. Not a monster, but a boyfriend, a son, a brother who just happens to kill strangers now and then."This story had me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole thing, not only did it keep me up at night because of how creepy it was, but I even had to take a bit of a break from it for a few days and then come back from it because of how creeped out I got. The best way I can think of describing this book is do you remember the show Medium where Patricia Arquette was the main star who would see things happen to people in her dreams? This was like that except think more of when the daughter started having the same types of dreams, and how scary it was for her to see those things. It was like that, except instead of it being multiple people it’s just one person who Nina has always seen for as long as she can remember."The boy's inner voice isn't snarky or snide. It's flat, assessing the terrain like he’s a soldier on a mission."This person she has seen change for a little boy, to a man, she seen him fight in a war and make it home safely and then one day he kills someone and covers it up. Then it happens again and again, each one cautious so he’s never caught. But then you also seem him with his family and it’s hard to believe that he could ever do those things.As for the friendship between Warren and Nina, I loved it. Warren thought Nina needed help, but the closer they got to each other again he realized that she wasn’t crazy or making things up. That this was something that was real and if they could find a way to stop the thief, Nina would get a good sleep and no one else would die at the hands of the thief.If you want a YA thriller that will keep you wanting to know what happened, while scaring you then this is the book for you."Letters that will uncover corpses while leaving their killer an enduring mystery for crime hounds to speculate about on message boards until one day he's forgotten"Thank you to Netgalley and Disney-Hyperion for an e-Arc of this book in exchange for my honest review. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Consider my rating a 4.5 By H. Grove (errantdreams) The basic premise is one I’ve seen a lot of lately: a woman sees a killer’s actions in visions or dreams and feels compelled to act against him. At that point it’s all about the window-dressing, and I really liked how Harrison pulled it off. One of my more favorite details is the fact that there is no convenient ‘hunting ground’ to which the serial killer is linked. He’s well aware of the types of things that might trip him up.Nina has taken to calling her mysterious serial killer “the Thief in the Night,” or just “The Thief”. He sneaks into houses late at night, kills, and hides the bodies. Then he goes home to his family, where he not only acts like a normal person, but seems to genuinely love his family.Warren goes back and forth on whether Nina’s just nuts. Then they find out this isn’t an isolated ability–a mysterious ability to watch another’s life while dreaming has happened before in her family. This is the only apparently super-normal thing going on in the world that the characters are aware of, but it’s a staple of thrillers to occasionally add in an unusual ability that gives our hero an edge while also giving them a weakness at the same time. One nice thing that got side-stepped in this tale was that the cops were not involved, and she was not some psychic working with the police. It was a nice variation on the theme.I like the characters in this one. In particular I like the serial killer, who isn’t entirely predictable and doesn’t stick to your average serial killer script.Book provided free by publisher for review 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Blurring the superhuman with the insane...Harrison's thriller will tease and entice and entrance you By Teen Reads When Nina Barrows begs Warren Witter to drive her six hours to a New York suburb, her one-time best friend doesn't know what he's getting himself into. But even though he has yet to discover the secret of Nina's nightmares --- or, more precisely, her nightly forays into the mind of a serial killer --- Warren obliges. The duo pulls an all-night stakeout, waiting for Nina's phantom killer to strike.But the teens are too late. By the time they plant themselves in front of the victims’ house, the “Thief" has already blasted a hole in the Gustafssons' skulls and slogged their remains through the woods, leaving Nina with nothing but renewed frustration --- and a glimpse of his license plate. Thus begins Nina's (and begrudgingly Warren's) road trip from their Vermont hometown to the merciless New Mexico desert.That's how I --- and Warren --- plunged into this psychological thrill ride, certain of only two things: Nina Barrows is no Mary Sue, no Katniss Everdeen-warrior princess. Nina's first, feeble attempt at a mile-run ends in a wheezed declaration of how much she hates PE.But she just might be a serial killer.From Morgan Matson's AMY AND ROGER'S EPIC DETOUR to Margo Rabb's KISSING IN AMERICA to the classic PAPER TOWNS, teen road trip novels crowd bookstore shelves the way mile markers line the interstate. But while Nina and Warren do crash in motel rooms and wolf down pecan pie in vinyl booths, most teen road trips don't climax in a showdown with a serial killer. So thank you, Margot Harrison, for twisting a tired premise into freshness.Nina transcends the girl-who-sees-dead-people stereotype and Warren --- the shy, nerdy, sometimes-drug dealer --- makes for an unexpected love interest. But you don't fly through a hundred pages in an hour because of character development, no matter how unexpected. The heart of THE KILLER IN ME is inarguably, inexorably its suspense. Blurring the superhuman with the insane, night terrors with, well, actual terror, Harrison's thriller will tease and entice and entrance you. Plus her prose is tight enough to snap, with just enough words for a glimmer of atmosphere.Still, there are a few issues with Harrison’s characters. Sure, Warren's flirtation with the drug trade clashes with his nice-guy demeanor. Characters are complex --- I get it --- but no way would Warren hook girls on stimulants just because he wants a new car. And Harrison can exaggerate some of Nina's fears, faking a few thrills in a book bursting with genuine horror.Still, THE KILLER IN ME teems with raw creeping terror and some pretty epic gunslinging. Fusing Henry James' THE TURN OF THE SCREW with the Lone Ranger, Harrison's taut first novel will thrill you, chill you, and leave you clamoring for her second.ed by Alison S., Teen Board Member See all 20 customer reviews...
From School Library Journal Gr 9 Up—Seventeen-year-old Vermont native Nina has intimate knowledge of a serial killer living in New Mexico. She knows his methods of selecting and disposing of victims, the steps he takes to make sure he will never be caught, and the name he chose for himself: the Thief. Nina finally has an opportunity to do something with her knowledge, so she turns to her former best friend Warren, but unwilling to tell him how she knows of the Thief, Nina lies. Although Warren is skeptical of her story and concerned for her mental well-being, his longtime crush on Nina compels him to help, and the teens set out to track the killer. But when she finally meets the Thief, he seems anything but the homicidal sociopath the protagonist has described. Could she have been wrong? What if there is no Thief? Is there a way to truly find out? Flowing and expressive prose paints a clear picture of Nina and Warren as they follow the Thief, wavering between certainty and doubt, both with regard to the killer and each other. The teens are smart, self-aware, believable characters, and a budding romance between the two adds another layer to the work without detracting from the story line. Nina's secret and multiple plot twists will keep readers guessing until the end. VERDICT A must-read debut for fans of fast-paced, eerie psychological thrillers who won't mind reading late into the night.—Maggie Mason Smith, Clemson University, SC About the Author Margot Harrison is an award-winning journalist and author, whose fiction has appeared, among other places, in "The Saint Ann's . The Killer in Me "is her first novel.
