A Zack Walker Mystery #1
By Linwood Barclay
The first in a darkly humorous, twist-filled classic crime series from mega bestseller Linwood Barclay.
Zack Walker Mystery #1
Zack Walker is a writer with an overactive imagination and two teenage children. After a murder on their street, he uproots his family from the city - insisting it's for their own good - and heads for the security of the suburbs.
However, his peaceful new life is soon shattered when he finds a body while out walking by the creek. Zack recognizes the dead man - and knows who his killer might be.
Things go from bad to worse as Zack follows a trail of deceit that leads right to his front door. To protect his family - and so he doesn't get framed for a crime he didn't commit - he's going to have to track down the killer himself.
Suddenly the suburbs are not looking nearly so safe . . .
