Daddy’s Home—Michele Scott writing under the pen name A.K. Alexander steps into the thriller genre with a daring and frightening novel. A serial killer of the worst kind is on the loose. The killer the police have dubbed “The Family Man,” appears to be seeking out his “perfect family,” preying upon single mothers and their children. He watches them…He takes them…and he plays out his role as the “the perfect father.” Crime Scene Investigator Holly Jennings of the San Diego Police Department is determined to track him down and see that justice is served. With Holly being a single mother herself, this man’s crimes are deeply personal to her, and turn more so when a friend and her daughter become the latest victims of “The Family Man.”
Along with tracking an evil killer, Holly is dealing with her own internal demons. She is raising her daughter Chloe alone after the death of her husband—a death she feels guilty for. To complicate her life further, Holly is doing her best to avoid possibly falling in love again with charming veterinarian Brendan O’Neil. As Holly delves deeper into solving the murders, she finds herself being sucked into a game of cat and mouse by “The Family Man,” that may lead her down a dark path too horrible to bear. One that may cost her gravely-her family, her new found love, and even her life.
