Mark Stevenson has just published a bestselling novel inspired by “The Family Man,” a long-ago serial killer who murdered entire families all over America and left them posed in gruesome tableaus of holiday merriment, whose crimes were never solved. The book has garnered the New York author critical praise, financial success, a beautiful fiancée--and the macabre attention of a devoted fan.

He calls himself Scavenger, and he’s also obsessed with “The Family Man.” But he knows something that Mark doesn’t. He knows what really happened to the killer. He knows his identity. He knows why the killings stopped. He knows why they’ll begin again.

Now Scavenger has devised a cunning little game, a scavenger hunt. He’s planted grisly clues at the scene of each original crime, clues that will eventually reveal the identity of “The Family Man.” And he wants Mark to come out and play.
