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.'
