The three main characters – Jazz Dent, his girl Connie, and his friend Howie – are all playing tag both with police and serial killer Billy Dent AKA Dear Old Dad. Everyone also spends some time in the hospital. Who is the Crow King, Billy or someone else? Who is Billy’s partner Ugly J? And will anyone get to save Jazz’s mom?
I saw some plot twists coming from chapters away. Some of the police tag was boring, having been done better in the previous book. The three friends follow clues, also boring, see previous book. Discovering the Crow King should have been more exciting, but by that time I just wanted to get over with the story.
