We've known author Barry Lyga since he worked at our old distributor Diamond Comic Distributors, selling graphic novels to libraries. He moved on to fame and (we hope) fortune, writing The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl, Boy Toy, Hero-Type, and more. His newest book I Hunt Killers, published by this week's sponsor Little, Brown Books, has a great (if creepy) premise:
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?
