Book Description

May 1 2007
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.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

No good deed goes unpunished in the fourth Zack Walker mystery thriller from Barclay, which finds the newspaper reporter, family man and very reluctant hero just settling back into a semblance of middle-class normalcy after his last adventure (2006's Lone Wolf). That all changes when Zack tries to help good friend, former neighbor and professional dominatrix Trixie Snelling dissuade local tabloid reporter Martin Benson from running a story on her and her business. Not long after Zack tries, unsuccessfully, to persuade Martin to pull the story, Martin turns up dead, tied to a rack with his throat slit, in Trixie's bondage basement—and Trixie, the prime suspect, has disappeared. Zack sets off in search of answers, following a path deep into Trixie's troubled, violent past that could cost him his job, his family and his life. Barclay has a fine ear for dialogue, especially in scenes with Zack and his family, and his expert blend of humor and suspense make this a well-constructed, often witty mystery that's sure to please.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last Zack Walker adventure is a good one! Sept. 30 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For those that read the first three books, the events that occur in this story are quite a bit darker than the first three installments.

This story centres on Zack's former suburban neighbour and friend, Trixie. Barclay does a nice job by sprinkling in short bits about her history throughout the present day happenings in the book. Being a good friend, Zack helps her so much that he ends up in trouble. Then being the curious person that he is, he decides to learn the truth about his friend.
Stone Rain goes deeper into the relationships between Zack, Sarah and Trixie. Then the boundaries of these relationships are tested as the story unfolds.

Like his other books, the story will keep you hooked.

Overall this is a good read. I only wish there were more Zack Walker adventures.
