The sequel to I Hunt Killers, Game will be released on April 16, 2012. Its already earned a starred review from Booklist. In this book the killer’s son, Jazz, is asked to come to NYC to help solve a crime.
Lyga started his career in Young Adult writing with the well recieved book The Astonishing Adventures of Fan Boy and Goth Girl. He has also written short stories and a graphic novel, MangaMan.
