I Hunt Killers By Barry Lyga a review

I saw this and picked it up but it sat in my too read pile for quite a while.

Taken from :

It was a beautiful day. It was a beautiful field.

Except for the body.

Jazz is a likable teenager. A charmer, some might say.

But he's also the son of the world's most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, "Take Your Son to Work Day" was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could--from the criminals' point of view.

And now, even though Dad has been in jail for years, bodies are piling up in the sleepy town of Lobo's Nod. Again.

In an effort to prove murder doesn't run in the family, Jazz joins the police in the hunt for this new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret--could he be more like his father than anyone knows?

From acclaimed author Barry Lyga comes a riveting thriller about a teenager trying to control his own destiny in the face of overwhelming odds. "

My Thoughts :

I really enjoyed this book. The mash of characters and the plot came together very wonderfully. The main character Jazz is the son of a serial killer stuck in his head, worried of becoming a serial killer himself. Then his small town has a girl show up dead and he takes it upon himself to help the police find out who the killer is. He follows the clues the way his serial killer father taught him how to track victims.

I really loved Jazz's internal monologue, and his fight over his choices that could change his life. I love the way that he wants to change the way that he thinks. The way that there is a chance to be something greater then he is.
