This book is soooo retarded. It started okay but then the father turned out to be a serial killer out of nowhere. Excuse me? Six women who had dated him had gone missing and the police is not asking him?

How was he found out? Well, besides the obvious confession in the last pages, it turns out that after killing those women he kept their driver's licenses and other memorabilia. Why? Apparently, so his daughter could find the box with the incriminating evidence.

What was his MO? None, he pretty much killed those women by chance, like, they would speak in a tone he didn't like to his daughter so they had to go.

At the end, his daughter asked him if he killed them and he is like "I had to." Aha...

Really, nothing really happens in here and that plot was totally lame.
