9780006499718: Zero at the Bone

Award-winning first crime novel from the author of THE RED SCREAM and UNDER THE BEETLE’S CELLAR.

Katherine Driscoll hasn’t heard from her father since she was a baby — over thirty years ago. She’s filled with suspicion when he writes her a letter, promising help. How does he know she needs it? Although she’s the best dog trainer in Texas, she must find $90,000 immediately or lose everything, including her beloved golden retriever, Ra.

But when she tries to take him up on his offer, she finds he’s already dead, mauled by a tiger at the zoo where he was a keeper. Katherine resolves to investigate, drawn to uncover long-hidden family secrets as well as what’s behind the tragedy at the zoo. It becomes all too apparent that the tiger isn’t the only killer around.

Review:

‘UNDER THE BEETLE’S CELLAR is an instant classic in mystery and suspense. The best chiller-thriller of the year.’
James Patterson

‘In UNDER THE BEETLE’S CELLAR, Mary Willis Walker gives us a kidnap story of rare intensity and mounting tension. No, I didn’t steal that quote from the blurb, the book actually is a superb suspense thriller.’
Irish Times

From the Back Cover:

It’s feeding time at the zoo.
Who’s for dinner?

Katherine Driscoll hasn’t heard from her father since she was a baby – over thirty years ago. She’s deeply suspicious when he writes her a letter. How does he know she is in desperate need of help? Although she’s the best dog trainer in Texas, she must find $90,000 immediately or lose everything, including her beloved golden retriever, Ra.

But when she tries to take him up on his offer, she finds that he is already dead, mauled by a tiger at the zoo where he was a keeper. Katherine resolves to investigate, drawn to uncover long-buried family secrets which appear to be entangled with events at the zoo. Grimly repressing her fear of snakes, she joins the staff of the reptile house. Only to realize that the tiger isn’t the only killer around.

Acclaim for Mary Willis Walker
