I Hunt Killers introduced the world to Jasper (Jazz) Dent, the son of the world's most infamous serial killer. And after helping catch The Impressionist, a serial killer who terrorized Jazz's home town, Jazz has begun to make a name for himself. But he isn't sure where to go from here: after all, his last case directly led to his dad escaping from prison...and killing again.
But when a high-powered New York City detective comes knocking on Jazz's door asking for help with a new case, Jazz can't say no. The Hat-Dog Killer (so named for the grotesque symbols he carves on his victims' bodies) has New York City--and its police force--running scared with no leads. So Jazz and his girlfriend Connie hop on a plane to the big city, and get swept up in a killer's murderous web.
The twists and turns shock even Jazz. SPOILER ALERT: There is not one killer, but two. Jazz's father is masterminding the entire thing. And his mother might be...alive?
This ends on a cliffhanger with Jazz, Connie, and their friend Howie all in mortal danger--sure to drive fans to the final audiobook!
* ""A superb mystery/thriller that explores what it's like to have a monster for a father...Lyga delivers a taut, gory tale that can easily stand its own as an adult thriller...but it's Jazz's internal conflict about his exposure to his father's evil that adds extra dimension and makes the book shine."

* "Lyga brilliantly combines the feel of a true crime story with mystery, adventure, and psychoanalysis...This story will appeal to a wide variety of older teen readers."
