Jasper's father, now in prison, is the world's most notorious serial killer, and he raised his son to carry on the trade. Now Jasper (who never turned his father in) can't be sure that he isn't a sociopath, too, so he tries to find redemption by helping the local sheriff pursue a new killer who seems to be following the same pattern as his dad.

I was too wimpy to watch more than two episodes of Dexter, and this is basically Dexter for teens. Jasper does have some pretty gross thoughts sometimes, and it's hard to tell to what degree he cares about anyone--he can be hard to relate to as a narrator. But I'm sure some teens, particularly boys, will read this for the suspense and the gore.
