My class is reading Barry Lyga’s fascinating and tense I Hunt Killers, which starts with this premise: “What if the world’s worst serial killer… was your dad?” The novel is about teenager Jasper (Jazz) Dent, whose father is responsible for atrocious deaths in the triple digits. Although Billy Dent has been put behind bars, Jasper still has to deal with his legacy—and soon, with a lot more, since it seems that a copycat serial killer has begun leaving bodies in Jazz’s home town. Jazz has an all-too intimate knowledge of how serial killers work, and he feels that it’s up to him to solve the mystery of who is responsible for the murders.
Class, please read Barry’s Q&A with Publishers Weekly and leave a comment or question for him below. Everyone else, feel free to do the same!
