Synopsis from Goodreads

You’re seventeen years old and your father is the most notorious serial killer America has ever produced. 

He brought you up. Taught you everything he knows. Everyone in your ordinary American town knows who you are. So even though Dear Old Dad is safely behind bars, when the killing starts all over again, you are the first person the police come to see…

They don’t know whether it’s nature or nurture. And neither do you…

The next one was reviewed by The Book Smugglers (HERE) It sounds like a brilliant addition to the library.
