Framing the Dialogue

Spider’s Web

A relative suggest that one of her favorite authors is Mike Omer and that I should try one of his novels.  Spider’s Web seemed like a good place to start and I borrowed for free with Amazon Prime.  Cannot beat that price.

“When Kendele selected the songs for her jogging playlist, she didn’t pause to think “What if I die hearing this?”  It wasn’t a question that normally occurred to her, though perhaps on that day it should have.”

In the book, women’s bodies started showing up.  Police looked for likely suspects and didn’t want to face the fact that there might be serial killer on the loose.  This psychopath had a unique way of letting his victims know how they were going to die.  By the time they figured it out, it was too late.

“He felt the growing anticipation inside him. Soon, it would be time once again. He could almost imagine the moment of impact as his next victim would die. His heart thumped a bit faster as he pictured it happening, late at night, not far from her home. It was going to be a violent death. Anticipation. There was almost nothing better.”

Sprinkle in a reporter who would stop at nothing to get the story and you get Spider’s Web.  This is no cozy mystery and will have you at the edge of your seat.
