And later, his best friend Howie earnestly asks him what his middle name is, because he s sure that serial killers all have three names The choice to use humor to hook the reader into the story is brilliant, and I thoroughly enjoyed being in Jazz s conflicted and absurdly playful head.Despite its humorous tone and exceptional writing, however, my guess is that this is going to be an extremely polarizing book Its refusal to look away from the often horrific nature of brutal crimes and twisted mind games will be shocking to readers who aren t used to these kinds of details Early in the book we re eased into some crimes because they re mostly told in past tense, but the later scenes definitely escalate in tension and violence, although I don t think they really cross the line in terms of being gratuitous rather than graphic If I had to quibble about anything, I d say that Jazz s give and take relationship with the police is something readers will need to accept, although their doubtful reliance upon him is portrayed in a fairly believable tone And as with all murder novels, I wasn t particularly keen on the few scenes told from the killer s point of view But those things are really almost incidental when the writing is nearly pitch perfect in balancing ghoulish humor and a macabre subject.It s so exciting to see YA that pushes boundaries in this way While I confess that I m a little uneasy about the idea of 13 year old being exposed to this sort of information, I don t think the book contains too much explicit material that older teens or adults already haven t seen in other forms of entertainment I strongly urge readers to carefully consider whether this is a subject that they want to read about, however, because this book certainly isn t for the faint of heart But for the right audience, this thriller will hit all the right notes for an unforgettable reading experience Its dark, disturbing, and devilishly funny vibe is pure genius This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher Recommended for mature teens and adults only.ARC Giveaway If you re intrigued by the sound of this book, stay tuned We ll be giving away an advance readers copy next week on the blog

    click to enlarge I love reading about and researching serial killers There, I said it I am perpetually fascinated by the stories that seem too far fetched to be true Elizabeth B thory allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins to retain her youth Ted Bundy kept the decapitated heads of his victims in his house as mementos Ed Gein dug up dead bodies and made a belt out of nipples This is the stuff nightmares are made of So it was with a certain excitement that I started reading Iclick to enlarge I love reading about and researching serial killers There, I said it I am perpetually fascinated by the stories that seem too far fetched to be true Elizabeth B thory allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins to retain her youth Ted Bundy kept the decapitated heads of his victims in his house as mementos Ed Gein dug up dead bodies and made a belt out of nipples This is the stuff nightmares are made of So it was with a certain excitement that I started reading I Hunt Killers Barry Lyga created a fun friendship, a believable relationship and interracial, which is exciting to note as interracial relationships are few and far between in YA , and two pretty darn scary serial killers One is the protagonist s father, Dear Old Dad, who killed over 120 people and is now in prison The other is a new killer, one who just started murdering people in Jazz s own town The locals will never forget what his father did, nor will some of them ever treat him as anything other than someone about to follow in his father s footsteps Jazz himself is worried about becoming a killer He knew about a lot of his father s victims and he keeps having nightmares or are they memories about helping his father kill something someone but he can t put the pieces together He knows the history and evidence from his father s kills in and out and believes he understands the mind of a serial killer, so when the new killer starts racking up victims, Jazz attempts to help the local police solve the crime The chief humors himthan I believe to be likely, but the funnier parts of the novel, and it IS funny, involve Jazz and his hemophiliac best friend Howie doing a little crime solving work on their own A lot of humor is also added by Jazz s grandmother, with whom he lives She has increasing memory loss and often does wacky things and mistakes people for others Of all the points in the novel that I could ve been offended by, I was a little disheartened by the fact that Jazz essentially drugs his grandmother several times to keep her sleeping Also, in regards to his grandmother, I felt like the child services worker, though well intentioned, was unrealistic Anybody who has worked in or around the system would probably raise an eyebrow at a worker making such an effort over someone who is healthy, not abused, able to support himself, and 6 months from aging out of the system Sad, but true Fans of thrillers and horror novels will probably enjoy this, regardless of its YA categorization When I was trying to think of readalikes, the only thing similar in the YA genre that I am aware of is the John Cleaver series by Dan Wells and I signed out of that series after the first book added in a paranormal element This book hadgory elements, funny dialogue,realism, and it was scarier I was fully engaged for the entirety of the novel so to me, it is the clear winner I Hunt Killers ends with a bang It can stand alone but I sincerely hope that Lyga writesabout Jazz and company Please don t leave me hanging like this, Mr Lyga Thanks to Wendy Darling at The Midnight Garden for touring her ARC of this book I loved it Read this review and tons of other book related awesomeness at The Readventurer

anticipated somethingflimsy, something along the lines of Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective I got a young Dexter John Cleaver, with considerablyemotional baggage This book works for meas a psychological analysis than anything Yeah, the plot is there, and it is good The mystery kept me guessing and I loved seeing things through the eyes of the killer, but the psychoanalytical aspects of this book blew the actual storyline out of the water Psych 101 Please I gainedinsight into the human mind from this book than from anything I learned in that class.Or maybe I just slept through that class Whatever, I PASSED, OK Jasper s father is a serial killer, the worst meaning the best, and not the most terrible serial killer of all time He has killed 123or 124, people before stupidly getting caught, and now poor Jazz is left to grow up pretty much on his own in a town where his name is notorious for being the child of a serial killer who got caught Nobody held him accountable for his father s crimes since he is a juvenile, and not an actual accessory to his father s crimes despite the fact that his dad has been practically grooming him to take over the family business since he s been in action meaning started killing people Jasper Jazz is extremely intelligent for his age, he s got the street savvy, he s got the smooth talking skills down, he s got dear old dad s skills of persuasion, and some others that he wish he didn t Now, there s another killer loose in the town of Lobo s Nod, Jazz thinks it s a serial killer but nobody believes him, and he s out to investigate.Not the smartest move if you want to stay under the radar, but I suppose if he acted intelligently and kept his head low, this book wouldn t exist.Jazz I loved Jazz s character, his complexity, his conflicting desires This book is an insight into his head, the psychological torment that he goes through day by day knowing that he is his father s son He struggles with his desires to do good and the darker parts of him that might be a little too close to his father than he likes The conflict inside him is beautifully written From the charismatic, normal front he puts up daily to fool others, to his deeper inner struggles with his father s programming He s got a dark sense of humor, and I rather like that as a bit of a break within such a dark tale Children are so impressionable, and even if his father got caught, the years and years of grooming affected his mindthan he wants to believe He doesn t want to be like his fatherwho, besides the most twisted, mentally ill children wants to emulate a serial killer when they grow up but Jazz can t help growing up the way he did, having witnessed what he did, and having the same blood running through his veins Jazz knows his own terrifying potential, should he allow it to grow But you don t want to kill people, she d said with finality, and Jazz had let the conversation die right there Because the only honest response would have been It s not that I want to or don t want to It s just I can I could It s like I imagine it s like being a great runner If you knew you could run really fast, wouldn t you If you were stuck walking somewhere, wouldn t you want to let loose and run like hell That s how I feel Jazz wants to do good, but he has to constantly fight the monster that s lurking within himself, however much he wants to suppress it She was dying Dying right in front of him, and he didn t trust himself to help her because he didn t trust his hands not to finish the job insteadShe was in the full throes of cardiac arrest.Jazz didn t think He didn t torture himself He tilted her head back and listened for breathing Nothing A moment of intense pleasure washed over him, followed by a revulsion so sickening that he almost threw himself headlong out the window The insight into his life post dad is pretty interesting, too You know all the sicko serial killer fans He s got that, just by being the infamous son He s got media following him, exposing him is that even legalto show a juvenile in this circumstance in the media Fucking Doug Weathers He s got people wanting to give him money He s got grieving parents contacting him for closure.He s got people angry at him, asking why he didn t just stop his dad Simple like the children of alcoholics and the victims of abuse, Jazz had been a master at compartmentalizing That, combined with Billy s persistent brainwashing and total control, meant Jazz had never uttered a peep to anyone The plot interesting, but I can t help thinking JAZZ YOU IDIOT JUST STAY AWAY MOVE TO ANOTHER TOWN When you re the child of a serial killer, wouldn t it be wisest to just stay out of the picture Especially for a kid so smart, so savvy, so good at manipulating people and appearing normal like Jazz supposedly is It doesn t make sense to me why he d want to get so involved Disbelief aside, the mystery itself, the procedures, the glimpses into the serial killer s work was well done The clues were given gradually, and that in combination with the flashes of POV through the killer s eyes makes this an excellent armchair detective novel I was constantly guessing for the whodunnit through all the little bits and pieces given There is gore, there is blood and torture, but it s nothing the average viewer of CSI or Criminal Minds haven t seen before.I liked all the characters The villains, the cops, not everything is black and white People grow, people change Even Jazz himself is not immune to foolishness, regret, and hubris My main concern before starting this book was the premisea boy, just a boy, doing better detective work than the police themselves I expected detectives to be bumbling fools, I expected people to compartmentalize Jazz, I epected this to be a Them against Me story I was wrong Everything and everyone haddepth than I expected.Oh, and the ending Did I see that coming Nope, nope, not from 10 miles away Damn

    Sequel, please Now I thought this book was really really good I would have happily handed out five stars, except for the fact that I had the killer s identity figured out less than halfway through the book I feel very sad that Ms Dense seems to have been randomly replaced with Marple, but thankfully this novel is about a lotthan just solving the main mystery.I actually took longer to read this book than I tend to do, and most of that time was spent on the first few chapters So I s Sequel, please Now I thought this book was really really good I would have happily handed out five stars, except for the fact that I had the killer s identity figured out less than halfway through the book I feel very sad that Ms Dense seems to have been randomly replaced with Marple, but thankfully this novel is about a lotthan just solving the main mystery.I actually took longer to read this book than I tend to do, and most of that time was spent on the first few chapters So I shall be issuing a warning to those who feel underwhelmed at first stick with this book, it really does get better and better The problem was, depraved individual that I am, I felt the introduction to the story and characters to be really light I m the kind of reader who likes my mysteries dark and full of gore and psychopaths and Jasper Dent s character reminded me of a much smarter version of Cassel from White Cat I love Cassel, but he never strikes me as a serious character, and this is how I felt towards Jasper At first.But it soon became apparent that Barry Lyga really knows how to balance light and dark in a way I m not even familiar with There was humour in this book and Jasper Dent was in many ways a regular teenage boy with a best friend and a girlfriend Since his dad was arrested, he has lived with his grandmother a woman suffering from the effects of old age and a sometimes cruelly psychotic personality but this is all rather amusing, instead of tragic However, the author s ability to suddenly flip the switch between light hearted teen humour and really dark descriptions of murder and sociopathic tendencies had quite an effect on me It could have seemed silly and forced, yet for me it just made itdramatic and disturbing.Perhaps this is just me because I don t recall reading reviews that have picked up on this dark twistedness But I honestly thought there was something extremely horrifying and effective about the contrast between light and dark tones in the novel Jasper Dent is also a very complex character, he has all kinds of conflicting emotions flying around inside him He is the kind of person who questions his motives for everything is he helping someone because he wants to help them Or is he helping them for what he gets out of it If a person is brought up knowing only one way of life, are they destined to follow that path Can they change There are a few problems I had with the story I don t believe the sheriff would really have been that understanding in a real life situation, and I don t believe he wouldn t have been just a tadsuspicious of Jasper in the beginning Also, would that social worker really have been that concerned for a guy so close to eighteen who could obviously look after himself I m not sure they would have.These things are very small matters that don t actually take anything away from the novel This is a seriously gripping story so, you know what you should do read it

Don t get me started about the dumbest thing the show became in the end So, I loved Dexter I love everything serial killer related Therefore I was prepared to love this book It didn t disappoint I guess here s the moment where I must warn you that even though it s YA, this story isn t for the faint of heart because we come across some really disturbing and gore scenes But then, the serial killer deal must have already warned you, right Do you think we can turn someone into a serial killer How much does our upbringing influence our actions Can we turn our back on faith Is faith a real deal or just a bunch of irrational fears Can we fight our interne violence lurking The killer was a badass Talk about supreme confidence Jazz couldn t help it he sort of admired the guy People matter People are real People matter Crime Larceny Indeed after a slow start, this book was such a page turner that I gave into it hours long without thinking about anything else, hooked as I was Isn t it the perfect larceny NoWhat Just look at the definition felonious taking or stealing okay, I was completely willing There s that of someone else s personal goods or property Hours of my time valued above for grand or below for petty a specific amount which is 100 in many Statesmy time is worthless, duh, meaning it s priceless with the intent to deprive the owner permanently of the goods or property I m pretty sure that s permanent, except for some lucky characters of SF novels.Now, do I regret reading it Not by a long shot Crime scene Lobo s NodHere s a little village where nothing never happens Hmm Well Except that thing you know, the arrest of one of the biggest serial killer of all times aka Jazz s father Okay, there s that Motives of the crime Play with your mindThis book appears to be some psychological and thought provoking thriller, as we are immerged in Jazz s somehow disturbed mind, getting an insight in the mind of that particular kid who s been raised by a monster Of course I loved that, what do you think Suspects There s enough depth in the characters to make them enthralling and interesting to follow JasperJazzDent, teenager, raised by a serial killer, who s continually afraid to cross the boundaries between good and evil Oh, man, talk about daddy issues What a tortured kid, and for reasons Being in his head, hearing his father pieces of advices, following him while he tries to act as a human, to read people correctly in order to appear normal, to be normal, to kill no one, because People Matter guys That was fascinating to see him struggle between his desire to be good and the darkest parts of his mind who made him wonder If If he gave in If he let them flow What would happen And there were the urges The feelings The memories The things that he d been taught and then forgotten, but that lurked somewhere in his brain s basement, ready to strike like stalkers in the night Haunted Jasper s haunted By this father s actions By the way he was raised By his fears to become a real legacy for his serial killer of a father By this knife he can t help but see in his nightmares Haunted Broken in a way nobody can understand Because he won t let them see Don t get fooled though Jasper is no innocent victim He s manipulative and flashing his mega watt smile comes just as easily to him as breathing he became a master of looking normal , and has a millions expressions in his arsenal to use when needed As his father, he s charming, handsome, and looks completely above suspicion Actually he reminded me of Dexter in the way he has to read people to know how to act sometimes Is Connie happyHmm, yeah, she seems to be I mean, the girl does smile That s a good sign right Little tips that s not always a good sign He s got also this dark humor I loved in Dexter, this ability to see life through a twisted glass, to see people as they truly are, free of their false pretenses Or so he thinks.Jasper, always on the edge of Jasper, for whom I ended caring deeply Howie, best friend of sub mentioned Jazz, likes cracking inappropriate jokes, and suffers from hemophilia This loyal kid cracked me up something fierce G William, State sheriff too nice to be true, but then, guilt and pity can do that to people, I ve been told Connie, Jazz s girlfriend, is a stronger Rita yes, Dexter s Rita, remember As Jazz expresses it, she s his anchor, his human part, somehow The one who s not afraid to tell him that this killer joke, now, wasn t the best idea he could have Can he swear never telling it again Yeah Good In my opinion she s perfect for him About their relationship, it seems important to mention that contrary to many YA books, the author didn t take the simplistic approach of the overwhelming romance we often find indeed instead of creating a new romance, he chose to show us the developments of an already existing relationship, addingdepth to its treatment in my opinion Maybe it was a guy girl thing.He hoped that s all it was What if it was a predator prey thing A human thing What if he was losing his connection to her God, don t let that be Evidences aka what you must know about the plot There s a serial killer running in the wild, and Jazz s mission is to catch him Or so he thinks Did I guess who the killer wasNope, but then, I m all kinds of stupid with thriller sometimes, and most of the readers guessed earlier Now, I don t think guessing would spoil the read because what s important here is the journey through Jazz s mind in my opinion That s where this book is filled with
