Lyga, Barry. I Hunt Killers
Jazz Dent is everything anyone would want in a teenage boy. He’s charming, he’s likeable, and he’s smart. There’s just one thing. His father, Billy Dent, murdered 123 (124 by Jazz’ count) people and is currently serving out over thirty life sentences. Jazz knows more than even the cops about his father’s kills – for Jazz, every day was Take Your Son to Work Day. Despite all this, however, Jazz has a beautiful girlfriend, a hilarious best friend, and fantastic grades. Then suddenly bodies start piling up in his small town – nearly perfectly imitating his father’s first few murders. Jazz offers his services to the police, hoping to clear his name, but the deeper he gets into the murders, the more Jazz grapples with the possibility that he is more like his father than he thinks.
The kind of gripping mystery that makes you want to wipe your memory and re-read, I Hunt Killers will leave you chilled and pawing for the sequel.
