John Wayne Cleaver isn’t a normal boy. He studies serial killers and over the years has become obsessed with them. He knows that he is dangerous and has tried everything in his power to control his real potential. John has made specific rules to live by in order to not become a serial killer. Think that’s weird? He works as a mortician getting dead bodies ready for their funerals. Recently a murder happened in their small town and John thinks that there is more too it than what people are thinking. He thinks there is a serial killer on the loose in their town and now he’s going to find him.
The 15 year old teenage protagonist in the novel made the story even more chilling to read. The fact that this young boy could have so may dark thoughts was enthralling and gave the story so much more dark meaning. The twist within the novel showed the true meaning of the saying, “things aren’t always what they seem”. I thought this novel was an excellent mystery read and captured true emotional terror of a serial killer on the loose. From gruesome details of carnage and death, I Am Not A Serial Killer was amazing.
