"Tonight Mark Stevenson is on top of the world. Tonight he is celebrating the success of his latest novel at a glittering party with his lovely fiancee at his side. At dawn he will return to his Greenwich Village apartment and find a note taped to his door. It is both an invitation and an ultimatum." "This morning Mark has been given the first clue in a series of increasingly bizarre clues that could lead to the identity of the "Family Man," the real-life serial killer on whom Mark's novel is based, a depraved madman who slaughtered five families in five different cities then arranged their bodies in grotesque tableaux of holiday gaiety. He was never caught. He simply vanished." "Today a bizarre adventure begins; a desperate cross-country odyssey that will pit Mark against a shadowy gamester who calls himself Scavenger - and propel him deeper into the mystery of his own haunted past."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
