What if the world's worst serial killer...was your dad?
Jasper "Jazz" Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one 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 criminal's point of view.
And now bodies are piling up in Lobo's Nod.
In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?
How have I ended up reading two books in a matter of a month about a sociopath?!
I really enjoyed the main character Jaz. But holy hell, it’s awkward. I liked him more than my other sociopath read because he’s actively trying to be good – he reminds himself frequently that “people matter.” How awkward is that though? A character that has to remind himself that people matter?! And his dad, convicted serial killer, Billy… Holy shit this guy is creepy. Even if Jaz wasn’t born a sociopath I feel like Billy would have turned him into one.
I love that Jaz tried so hard to not be a bad guy… To prove to himself and everyone around that he’s good, he wants to help the local police catch a new serial killer. The mystery was good and totally caught me by surprise, though if you look back, the hints were there. That’s what makes for a great mystery IMO.
I need a sociopath break, but I do think I’ll continue the series eventually.
