Zack Walker Mystery #2

Much to his family's relief, stay-at-home writer Zack Walker finally gets a job outside of the house. Surely, becoming a journalist will keep his overactive imagination in check . . .

Now in full-time employment, Zack's protective instincts must work over-time to keep his kids safe from dangers real and imagined.

But while writing his feature article, Zack stumbles into the centre of a web of murder and deceit.

What seems like a tragic accidental hit-and-run may actually be a far darker crime. And Zack will find himself in the dark about who the good guys are, what the bad guys want, and what he's started to uncover . . .

The unlikely detective Zack Walker returns in this mystery thriller from the dark and witty mind of bestselling author Linwood Barclay. This is the first time that Linwood's debut series is available in the UK.
