Lone Wolf
by Linwood Barclay


Overview -
"A talented writer with a gift for the absurd and a wicked take on life."--January Magazine

"Barclay is the master."--The Wall Street Journal

Newspaper writer, family man, and reluctant hero Zack Walker has stumbled onto some dicey stories before, but nothing like what he's about to uncover when a mutilated corpse is found at his father's lakeside fishing camp. As always, Zack fears the worst. And this time, his paranoid worldview is dead-on.

While the locals attribute the death to a bear attack, Zack suspects something far more ominous--a predator whose weapons include arson, assault, and enough wacko beliefs to fuel a dozen hate groups. Then another body is discovered and a large supply of fertilizer goes missing, evoking memories of the Oklahoma City bombing. But it's when he learns that his neighbor is a classic Lone Wolf--FBI parlance for a solo fanatic hell-bent on using high body counts to make political statements--that Zack realizes the idyllic town of his childhood is under siege. The fuse is lit to a catastrophe of unimaginable terror. And with time running out, Zack must face off with a madman.

"Barclay is a very funny--and insightful--writer with huge potential for the long run."--Flint Journal Review
