"I killed a demon. I don't know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped. Well, it stopped for a while."
In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon - the terrifying persona he calls "Mr. Monster" - might now be using him.
No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.

Sympathy for Socios
Animal Torture Ruins This Story
I liked the first book but the second was helped mightily by Heyborne's narration.
I would not recommend based on multiple sequences of animal torture and violence. If I had known this was in the book I would have skipped this book. Now I'm telling people what I wish someone had told me. I fast forwarded much of this.
Great characterizations and emotion. Great timbre to the voice and his narration for the main character, a teenager, sounds like the right age. Another improvement over the first book.
John's whiny sister.
I know it seems odd to complain of animal violence while humans bear the brunt of it. It's just my pet peeve (pun unintended) to include animal torture in fiction whether it be horror or crime. It's up to you whether this bothers you or not.
