I Hunt Killers
Good Afternoon Everyone! I am extremely happy to announce today’s thrilling treat, I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. I Hunt Killers introduces us to Jasper Dent, better known as Jazz. Jazz is the son of notorious serial killer, Billy Dent. Billy’s murder spree reached triple digits and dear old dad sought to teach his son all about being a serial killer. Now that his dad is in prison serving 25 life sentences, Jazz is forced to deal with being the son of a serial killer. What all does that entail? Well, not wanting to turn out like dear old dad for instance.
When a dead body is found in the small town of Lobo Nod, Jazz can’t help feeling that this is the work of a new serial killer. Jazz attempts to help the local authorities, but he can’t help noticing the accusatory glances from those that know his parentage. Does Jazz have the serial killer instincts his father taught him? Can he overcome those same instincts and help the police?
If you want to know, you must read I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. Jazz is a great character and I love his inner battle between what is right and what his father taught him. For a young adult novel, I Hunt Killers had lots of horror for me and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I’m actually reading it again I loved it so much. I hope you take a chance on it and if you do, please let me know what you thought!
Until next time...
PS. If there are any horror titles you’d like to recommend, please do. I am always looking for new chilling reads!
