In this thrilling mystery, Xander and his new friends Crowley, Lisa, and Tim investigate a series of kidnappings and murders that stretch back decades, all of which have the same similar twist: victims being found after years of being missing.
Meanwhile, a strange series of murders has brought an FBI agent from Tim's past into town. Can Xander protect those he loves while uncovering the truth behind these crimes?
"Family Values is the fourth entry into the Xander Drew series. This is the toughest case that Xander has faced. The tension rises and the mystery unfolds, leaving you breathless as you make your way to the end. I couldn't put it down. An exciting yet dark entry into the series. A must read!" -- Paul Carberry, Zombies on the Rock
