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*.
