The media call him “The Family Man”. He is in search of the “perfect” family and he stalks single moms and their kids trying to choose just the right ones so he can insert himself to be the “perfect” father. Perfect until the chosen mother and child don’t play along with his demented fantasy and then he kills and starts hunting again.
Holly Jennings, a Crime Scene Investigator for the San Diego Police Department has caught the case. She lost her husband in another police investigation that went horribly wrong. She deals daily with the guilt that it was her fault. This makes the case personal because she is now a single mom herself.
The case gets even more personal for her as a friend falls victim to “The Family Man.” Holly start to realize she has to tread carefully as she fits his profile. One false move could cost not only her own life but the lives of others she holds dear.
Talk about psychological suspense thrillers, this one blew me away! Think Criminal Minds more than CSI. Holly works her way into your heart and “The Family Man” speeds up your heart rate to record levels.
The author has written the book in such a way that you become invested in the characters quickly. They are so fully developed, both the “bad” characters and the “good” characters. Their back stories are interspersed so naturally you can almost see them drawn on the page.
While the moments with the killer can get gritty and graphic, the times with Holly as her new relationship grows can be serene and romantic. Then as we get more into the story and the “chase” is on your emotions will run the gambit. I challenge you to try and put this book down! You will not be able to do it! It is filled with plot twists, surprises and one unbelievably strong woman!
