"I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)" by Barry Lyga

'I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)' by Barry Lyga


Meet Jasper Dent. Jasper is the son of serial killer Billy Dent. Billy is behind bars now, but he used to take Jasper with him. Jasper knows more about human behavior and more ways to kill a person than most cops. He is terrified that he will follow in his father’s footsteps, that maybe killing is in his DNA. When a new murderer comes to town, he sets out to solve the crimes, both to clear his own name and to prove he’s not his Father's protege. Seeking out the killer puts Jasper and his friends in grave danger. Who will be the next to die? Note: This novel is very dark and disturbing, suggested for mature teen and adult readers.
