The house husband by James Patterson and Duane Swierczynski

Teaghan Beaumont has just started back at work after spending six weeks at home with her beautiful new baby boy Christopher - difficult for any mother, but when you are a homicide detective conning back to a hot case, and you have a fresh c-section scar it goes from difficult to challenging.  

An entire family has been found dead in their home and it soon becomes clear to Detective Beaumont and her partner Detective Diaz that it was a murder.  The weird thing is that it's not the first murder involving a whole family.  There have been other cases, and if they are not able to stop the killer then there could be many more to come.

Bookshots have a wide variety of books in the series - some tie in with other full novel series, while others are stand alone novellas.  The house husband is a stand alone novella which means you can dive in with no background and enjoy with no strings attached!  

I have read quite a few Bookshots and this has been one of my favourite so far and I think that is partly because of the darker edge that Duane Swierczynski brings (he has proven to be somewhat twisted with his other books).  There is a lot to like here, and it was really challenging (in a good way) to try and figure out what was happening - and the ending is just *wow*.
