So this installment in the series has Jazz still questioning his grip on humanity. He's still struggling with the fact that he is the son of Billy Dent, serial killer extraordinaire, and that Billy has molded him throughout childhood to be his prodigy. Billy is in Jazz's head constantly, which, let's face it, is enough to drive anyone bat-s*** crazy. But now, new thoughts are crowding in, as Jazz is having intense dreams with nondescript sexual innuendo. These sexual urges are bothering him in his waking hours, as well, because the line between sex and killing is a murky one. It is a line that Jazz is desperately afraid to cross. It doesn't make it any easier that he is an adolescent male with a beautiful, spunky girlfriend who is more than ready to love him long time.
Jazz's grandma, the spawn creator of Billy himself, is off the chain. Well, more so than the last book, which is hard to believe. She has truly lost the last marble in her schizophrenic head. It's so bad that Jazz is afraid to leave her alone. He does not want social services involved again, especially after what happened with the last social worker. He is 17 and would like to spend his last year of adolescence out of a foster care situation. When Jazz is asked to come in on a case in NYC (yea, how realistic is this?), he calls on good ol boy, Howie, to come care for his grandmother. Howie is a GEM. I have no words for the awesome this character is. He is the comic relief in a series full of gore, crime and creepy ass situations.. I ADORE HIM.
Meanwhile, Connie is doing some sleuthing of her own, trying so hard to assist Jazz in this "game" he has found himself caught up in. She was acting like a typical teenager, feeling invincible and brave. I wanted to shaker her numerous times but I honestly couldn't find it in myself to be angry at her for her decisions. She loves Jazz and wants to help. And she's a teenager. It's just part of the ole developmental nature of her age to be a flaming idiot. And of course, Dear Old Dad is always part of the scheme, regardless if he's just in Jazz's head or his neighborhood. Conversations with Billy are creeeeeeeeeepy to the max.
The ending! *flails* Did anyone see that coming? AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT CHARACTER? Or should I say, CHARACTERS???? A cliffhanger from the bowels of Hell, people.
It truly is a series unlike any other that I have read.
Terrifying, creepy, strange, mysterious, captivating, compelling, and about a million other adjectives I could name, all packed into a story that was not only riveting but so good that I had a hard time putting down and had to stay up until the wee hours of the morning reading until I got to the very last page. A series that you will want to have all three books on hand for because you will want to pick one up right after the other.
Yeah, it really is that good, that dark, and that thrilling. It will make your heart pound, your pulse jump and have you looking over your shoulder a time or two just because.
Book 1 ended with Jazz feeling like he was starting to fit in - that he'd found his calling with the skills Billy had given him as he was growing up. Book 2 finds Jazz not quite there yet. He doesn't trust himself enough to believe that he's not going to go bad and end up snapping and killing those around him. His mantra of People Matter is still running through his head. He feels guilt over Billy's escape and now he's having dreams that rattle him to his core.
Guys, as dark as book 1 was, this book ups the ante. The murders that Jazz steps in to help on are brutal. The things that he sees, the way he processes information, his understanding of a killer's mind ... it's chilling. Jazz is this wonderfully complex character who just draws you in with his fears and his analytical mind. His ability to manipulate is creepy. His fear that there's a trigger buried somewhere in his psyche... with the way that Billy planned ahead, it could SO EASILY be true.
Things are revealed this time around that look HUGE. Connie and Howie are more than just supporting players, they're finding things out. They understand Jazz better than he thinks they do. They know that there are times when the only thing holding him together is the fact that they're there to support him. (And also, Howie's pickup lines are made of PURE AWESOME!)
AND THE ENDING! I'm going to be DYING (not literally, although I'm sure Billy could arrange that) until book 3 comes out! SO MANY THINGS! I've got my fangirl flail on for this series and I want to wallow in all the Jazz and crew that I can possibly wallow in.
Yes, it's THAT good.
