Publisher's Summary

The explosive and hilarious final audiobook in the Zack Walker series from best-selling author and master of the thriller Linwood Barclay.

Metropolitan newspaper writer Zack Walker has a knack for stumbling onto deadly stories. But it's one that his good friend Trixie Snelling doesn't want told that's about to unleash a storm of trouble. As a professional dominatrix in the suburbs, Trixie has her share of secrets, but Zack has no idea what she's really hiding when a local newspaperman threatens to do an exposé on her - not until Zack finds a dead body strapped to the bondage cross in her basement dungeon.

Now Zack is implicated in a murder, Trixie is missing, and everything he thought he knew about his friend, his town, even his own marriage reveals a darker side. Zack's twisted trail to the truth will lead to a long-unsolved triple homicide, bikers, drug wars, and a stone-cold killer hell-bent on revenge. It's a story that's already cost him his job and possibly his wife, and, if Zack's not very lucky, it will cost him his life.

Great series

What did you like most about Bad News?

Just finished book 4 and will miss the characters if no more Zack Walker books are forthcoming.It's always a worry that after a good first book in the series the author then loses the drive for the following books. No worries here ....Barclay manages to not just keep up the tension, whilst adding humour, but actually ramps up to a great climax at the end of the series.Huge Linwood Barclay fan and I eagerly await his next publication.

What other book might you compare Bad News to, and why?

See previous 3 books.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

More please!

loved this book

This series of books is an example of the rare genre; the amusing but genuinely trilling mystery. Kept me entertained all the way though. Only found it because i searched the narrator's work. He has a voice and delivery which is perfect for this type of book.
