What's it like to have a monster for a father? Seventeen-year-old Jazz’s father, Billy Dent, was a serial killer. After over a hundred murders, Billy was finally caught and sent to prison for life - but not before he taught Jazz everything he knew. Jazz learned everything from how to be disarmingly charming to how to dismember a body - knowledge he intends to never put to use.
But when a woman is found dead in a field, Jazz is drawn to the investigation. Then another woman is killed and another - and Jazz falls under suspicion. Together with his hemophiliac best friend, Howie, and his girlfriend, Connie, Jazz decides to hunt down the killer himself. As the investigation falters and the deaths pile up, Jazz must fight his own demons. Can he step of out of his father's shadow, or does evil lurk inside him too?
This is an intense and sometimes gory read that will appeal to older teens as well as adults. No surprise that it's already been optioned for a TV show.
