A killer is roaming the streets of San Diego, preying on single mothers and their children with a depravity that few in the police department have ever seen. He’s hunting for the perfect family . . . and judging by the trail of bodies he’s left scattered across the city, this particular daddy is very hard to please.

For Detective Holly Jennings, the search for the Family Man killer just got personal. Not only is she a single mother struggling, after the death of her husband, to raise her daughter, but now Holly’s friend and her daughter have become the Family Man’s latest victims. Determined to stop him once and for all, Holly delves deep into the investigation, combing through evidence for clues to his identity. But the closer she gets to the truth, the further she must venture down his dark, twisted path, until she is forced to decide just how high a price she’s willing to pay for justice.

This book was creepy, chilling, and exciting right till the end. I loved that the main character was a strong woman who was still believable. It made a pretty fast read, but that may be because I didn't want to put it down.

Detective Holly Jennings of the San Diego Police Department has worked on a lot of murder cases, but this one is getting to her. A serial killer is kidnapping single mothers along with their children, and killing both. That scenario hits home to Holly, as it describes her situation. Her husband was killed in the line of duty when Holly was pregnant, so it has been her and her seven year old daughter, Chloe, ever since. The killer is escalating, and it's up to the police to determine his motivation in order to stop him. Holly believes that the killer is attempting to build a family of his own, and then killing the victims when his fantasy of them loving and accepting him is revealed as a mere dream. This kind of core drive means that he won't stop until Holly and her team can stop him. Things devolve when it becomes apparent that the killer has his sights on Holly and Chloe as his next chance at a perfect family. Can she bring this killer to justice before he takes away everything she has? A.K. Alexander has written a suspenseful novel that will keep the reader turning the pages. Holly is a strong, resourceful woman who has the reader cheering for her. The killer, "The Family Man", is a chilling depiction of evil. The plot has a great pace and the finale is excellent. This book is recommended for mystery fans.
