Staff favorite Barry Lyga (Goth Girl Rising, Mangaman) presents his newest novel, I Hunt Killers, in an interview with his editor Alvina Ling. Killers follows teenager Jazz, the son of a serial killer, as he tries to keep himself free from suspicion after several murders happen near his town and local police wonder if he's not following in Dad's footsteps. (Jenn is referring to this book as Dexter Morgan meets Matt from Friday Night Lights, which should give you some idea of how creepifyingly entertaining it is.) Facebook RSVP appreciated.
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.
