I loved this book
This is probably the most well written young adult book I've ever read. Jazz is the son of the worst serial killer of all time and was trained by his father to take over the family business. Instead, Billy gets caught and Jazz is trying Not to becoming what his father wanted and instead is using his training to track and catch another serial killer.
The internal struggles of Jazz is well written and Barry even writes his girlfriend calling Jazz out about it right when you the listener/reader are about to say "Enough!" I liked the ending with Billy escaping jail. it's kind of like "The Following" but I'm ok with that. The reading is also very good. I liked this book so much I almost listened to it twice in one week. Instead I bought the hardcover for my wife and found that there are some sequels. So now I'm about to listen to "Game" instead. Awesome
I read the hrd copy and I loved it. It was amazing so I wanted to have it with men everywhere so I could show my friends. If you like funny and scary at the same time...you will love this. I think it's age appropriate for 12 & up
