Linwood Barclay – Zack Walker Series – Stand Alone Thrillers
Back in 2007 I meet an interesting character Zack Walker, who was a detective who made some Bad Moves and got involved with some Bad Guys and had four great adventures. Then his creator Linwood Barclay wrote two books Too Close to Home and No Time for Goodbye which outsold the Zack Walker books by a lot and put Linwood Barclay on the map as a major stand alone thriller writer!! And while I may one of the few who still miss Zack Walker Linwood’s thrillers are terrific.
Linwood Barclay (born 1955) is an American-born Canadian author, noted as a novelist, humourist, and (former) columnist. His popular detective novels are bestsellers in Canada and internationally, beginning with No Time for Goodbye in 2007.
He was born in Darien, Connecticut, son of Muriel and Everett Barclay. His father was a professional illustrator who moved his family to Canada in 1959 where he had accepted a job with William R. Templeton Studios in Toronto. In 1966 the Barclay family purchased a vacation campground in Bobcageon, Ontario, which they ran for about five years until the death of his father from lung cancer.
