    Great Book!

    This is a great book. It's fast paced and keeps your interests. It is comical and I really started feeling sorry for poor ole Zack Walker. Very Humorous. Quick read.

    Great debut mystery

    The Walker family used to live downtown. However, when used condoms and needles were found on the street and a five year old girl was killed and cut up and put in the refrigerator, Zack decided it was time to move to the suburbs, where his family would be safe. Zack obsesses over his family¿s safety and he goes to extraordinary lengths to teach his loved one how to remain out of harm's way, which usually ends up making them furious at him.................................... One day when Zack and his wire are at the supermarket, he notices his spouse left her purse in the cart. To teach her a lesson he takes the bag and puts it in the trunk of the car so she will think it is stolen. When his wife comes back to the car, he realizes she is wearing a fanny pack and he stole someone else¿s purse. By the time he tracks the owner down, he finds her murdered in her home and realizes he has stumbled into a dangerous situation that puts him and his family in harm¿s way......................................... BAD MOVE is one of the most exciting crime thrillers of the year as the troubles the protagonist finds himself in borders on the slapstick. His obsessive need for safety lands him in trouble with businessmen, politicians and a cold blooded killer who wants nothing more than to murder the hero and read his latest science fiction manuscript. Making all the right moves, Linwood Barclay has a refreshingly original voice that this reviewer believes will turn her into a superstar in the crime thriller sub-genre...........................

    I enjoyed this book so much I have been recommending it to everyone.

    The characters were so believable and at times I laughed so hard I cried. The story line kept me reading till I finished it at 3:00 a.m. It was one of those books that you hate to see end and yet I could not wait to see how things turned out. I am now planning on reading all Linwood Barclay's books. I rate this novel 5 stars.

    Interesting crime story

    I had read some of Linwood Barclay's more recent novels and enjoyed them, so I thought I would try the first in his Zack Walker series. What a kick! The sense of humor he gives his characters, Zack in particular, really adds to the story. The kids were great too! I recommend this for a fun crime thriller story. Now on to the other books in the series!

    Really fun read!

    At first, I thought the events being described were completely pointless. However, they were funny so I continued reading. Little did I know, Barclay would bring every single aspect of the beginning into the end. I was glued to the book and had no desire to put it down. I found myself both laughing, and dying to know what was going to happen. My first Barclay read will not be my last!

    Bad Move

    Linwood Barclay has definately out done himself again. I pick up his books & can't put them down til the last page is read. Zack Walker definately cracks me up with all of the different things he gets himself into. Can't wait to finish this book then read the next 1 in the Zack Walker series.

    Dreck!

    Wow. I'm glad someone (a good editor?) sat Barclay down at some point and said "If you ever want to make it as a fiction writer, you've got to stop writing crap like this". This book is like a really bad made-for-tv movie, where you're mildly interested for the first 20 minutes thinking "how bad can it be?", and at the hour and 15 minute mark the writing and the acting are so bad you want to poke your eyes out for continuing that long with it.
