Zack Walker Mystery #4
Journalist Zack Walker has a dangerous habit of finding deadly stories. But this is one his good friend Trixie Snelling doesn't want told.
It turns out Trixie has her fair share of skeletons in her closet and, as Zack discovers, a dead body in her basement.
With other journalists circling the story - and no sign of Trixie, who has gone missing - Zack could find himself implicated in a murder, unless he finds out the truth fast.
The bad news is: it will cost him his job, and teach him that everything he knows about his friend, his town, and even his marriage, is a lie. The good news? It hasn't cost him his life . . . yet.
The acclaimed Zack Walker mystery series delivers thrills and laughs in a winning combination that will appeal to fans of his mainstream standalone thrillers. 'Riotously funny and irreverent... While Zack is an amazingly flawed hero, he's a breath of fresh air with no illusions about his odd compulsions and his limited abilities. His often exasperated wife Sarah makes the perfect comic foil. Fans of lighter crime capers will rejoice.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 'Fast pacing, well-drawn characters, and a look at the life of a science-fiction writer add to the pleasure of this humorous first-person account in which the suburbs turn out to be no guarantee of personal safety.'
