THE KILLING KIND
Written by Jennifer Jaynes & Burke Bryant
A prequel to the Strangers series by author Jennifer Jaynes.
When a nine-year-old boy makes a horrifying discovery in the pond behind his house, things in his life go from bad to worse. He can’t tell anyone about what he’s found—not his father, his mother, or even his little sister. Neither can he share how he feels, because the thing floating in the pond is more than just terrible. It’s curious, and disgusting, and wonderful.
The boy’s quest to solve the mystery of the thing in the pond forces him to acknowledge the darkness looming under the surface of his broken home—his father’s alcoholism, the men his mother brings into her bedroom, his younger sister’s strange behaviors. His only comfort is the company of a stray dog he calls Goldie, and in the perfect family he observes in secret. But when his father abandons the boy and his sister, the boy must come to understand who his mother truly is, because in this revelation he will also discover who he and his sister are destined to become.

S1 EP2 Written by Burke Bryant
When a member of a private research team deep in the Nicaraguan jungles succumbs to an unknown contaminant, team leader Donovan Rake is desperate to find help in the villages along the El Desaguadero River. A mass grave, a blind child, and the sole survivor of a mysterious plane crash all add to Donovan’s mounting suspicions as he and his team fight to survive the perilous climate and an unknown killer.
After a team member succumbs to a fatal respiratory infection, Donovan Rake is forced to sail his research team upriver through dense Nicaraguan jungle in search of help. Instead of medicine, they find a deserted village still-smoldering from the fire of a mass grave and one survivor: a young blind girl too in shock to explain what’s happened to her people. Down one man and with a vessel unfit for sailing, the team sets out on foot with the girl in tow. A plane crash in the middle of the night sends Donovan and his team to investigate another horrific scene where again they find only one survivor—a Nicaraguan woman named Nadia.
When a survivor of the blind girl’s village is the next to perish, Donovan’s suspicions about Nadia demand answers. A search through her belongings exposes the last thing he expected—a file on something called Crow, a suspected terrorist organization. But when Donovan confronts Nadia and demands to know who she is and what she knows, Nadia has a question of her own: who is he, and what was he doing so deep in the Nicaraguan jungle?
