My first Zack Walker book. Zack, a journalist, gets a call that his father has been killed by a bear at the fishing camp his father owns upstate. Let the fun begin. We meet a cast of small-town characters worthy of "The Cat Who..." books. Leonard the diaper king cracked me up several times. The author Barclay mixes murder, suspense, and humor in a way that I enjoyed very much. The intrigue revolved around a family of "Lone Wolves" that are renting the farm house on Zack's father's property. The family is a mini-militia group led by the patriarch Timmy. (Imagine the locals cast in "Deliverance.") Zack has to untangle all this, deal with stunning news about his family, and track down the bear. Whew! Totally worth the read.
