Summary (From the publisher):

Zack is back, and much to his familyís relief, the work-at-home science-fiction writer has left the house to take a job as a features writer for the city paper. But now that Zackís incessant plotting can no longer be hatched from the comforts of his own home, he must be ever more vigilant to outwit the evil at large, whether in the suburbs, the city, or his own imagination. Zack is readyÖor so he thinks.

While researching his first feature article, Zack stumbles upon a real-life crime scene, but what seems like an ordinary hit-and-run may actually be a homicide linked to a gang thatís been burglarizing Crandallís high-end shops. Suddenly Zack finds himself at the center of a violent crime wave and destined for a confrontation with Barbie Bullock, an unsettling figure infamous in the crime syndicate for his ruthless business tactics and peculiar proclivity for collecting dolls.

And all is not quiet on the home front either. Zackís protective instincts launch into overdrive when he discovers that his daughterís rejected suitor has been tracing her every step and may harbor a much more ominous motivation than winning a Saturday night date. Nor does his sonís strange behavior and recent friendship with a creepy computer recluse inspire joy in a fatherís heart.

As worlds begin to collide and boundaries between family and foe blur, Zack goes on the attack, and heaven help the bad guys when this resourceful father comes to make good on a deal gone bad.
