In the too-quiet town of Oakwood, only the lucky die of boredoma€band new homeowner Zack Walker isna€™t feeling lucky. Whoever said the burbs were boring will think twice after reading Linwood Barclaya€™s hilarious debut mystery, in which Dad learns the hard way that he doesna€™t always know best. Zack wouldna€™t blame you for thinking hea€™s safety-obsessed. True, he masterminded a plot to trade his familya€™s exciting city lifestyle for one of suburban tranquillity. True, even after this strategic move, Zack still has issues with family members who forget their keys in the front door, leave their cars unlocked, or park their backpacks at the top of the stairsa€”where you could kill yourself tripping over them. Just ask his wife, Sarah, or his teenage kids, Paul and Angie, who endure their share of lectures. Zack knows that he needs to chill out and assume the best for oncea€”but we know what happens to those who assume. When Zack realizes their two-faced developer sent a petty thief to fix their leaky shower, he starts fighting hard to ignore the fact that Oakwood isna€™t the crime-free paradise he was hoping for. But his brief state of denial comes to an abrupt end when, during a walk by the creek, he stumbles across a dead body. Even more shocking, Zack actually knows who the victim isa€”and who might want him dead. With a killer roaming around their neighborhood and Zacka€™s overactive imagination in overdrive, hea€™s sure things cana€™t get any worse. But then another local is murdereda€”and Zacka€™s paranoid tendencies get him implicated in the crime. While his wife is trying to remember why she married him in the first place, and his kids are considering whether ita€™s time to have him committed, Zack decides therea€™s only one thing he can do. To protect his familya€”and avoid being busted for a crime he didna€™t commita€”hea€™s going to have to override his safety-first instincts, tap into his delusions of machismo, and track down the killer himself. From the Hardcover edition.a€œI got a bed upstairs, and a TV. And I keep the fridge stocked. I even manage to do a little bit of entertaining.a€ He gave me a sly grin, and a nod of his head toward an empty wine bottle and two dirty wineglasses over on the counter by the sink.
