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.

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.

I've read most of Linwood Barclay's latest offerings, No Time For Goodbye, Fear The Worst, Never Look Away with The Accident still waiting on the TBR pile.

This book is one of his earlier titles, the fourth in a series featuring Zack Walker, a newspaper reporter cum sci-fi novelist. Barclay's Walker booked have been blurbed as Hiaasen-esque in style, but having read most of Hiaasen's books I'm not too sure I would agree. There were a few chuckles, and possibly one laugh out loud moment, but he never brought a tear to my eye, unlike Carl on occasions.

Walker apparently has the unfortunate knack of inadvertently landing himself in trouble, more by accident than design. On this occasion, his well intentioned efforts to assist an old friend, neighbour and sex-worker put both him and his family in peril, as well as his job and more importantly his marriage.

Murder, biker gangs, stun guns, S&M torture dens, as well as some dodgy fried food all feature prominently in the book. Whilst Walker is likeable and always strives to do the right thing, I'm probably not too bothered if I don't read about his earlier exploits, which are obliquely referenced fairly often, anytime soon.

There are plans I believe to re-issue this and the earlier Walker books in the UK, during 2013, so as my wife is a Barclay fan I guess I will be catching up whether I really want to or not.

3 out of 5.

Got into Linwood recently, all his books are page turners laced with wit and sarcasm from the protagonist and this was no exception. Is one of four books so far featuring Zach, be sure to read in the right order!

I'm becoming such a Barclay fan. I'm running out of his books to read. The plot is so electrifying, but totally believable. It's a great read.
