I Hunt Killers - Barry Lyga

So I don't have the energy nor the skill to write why this book is so good and why you should just read it - trust in my judgement that this is an awesome read, with not only talented writing but incredible characters plus who can turn away from the blurb?

'It was a beautiful day. It was a beautiful field. Except for the body.
Jazz is 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 criminal's point of view.
Now, with bodies piling up in the sleepy town of Lobo's Nod, Jazz must work with the police to prove that murder doesn't run in the family.'

Watching Jazz struggle with his humanity and seeing him always second guessing not only his intention behind what he does but also his thoughts and feelings was an unique experience. To think that people actually go through life in a similar aspect to Jazz is insane, I'm not sure how one could do it.

Jazz is a truly incredible character, and he's not alone, this book is filled to the brim with them - from the 'villains' to the 'mentors' to the 'sidekicks' all of them bring something special to this story to make it an extraordinary read.

Besides who isn't at least a little intrigued by serial killers and the thought process that happens in their twisted little minds, Jazz gives us that insight. Add in gruesome details about the human body before, during and after death and your pretty much guaranteed a griping read.

If only i had the next book....
