Come into my parlor...
For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true; but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.
Said the spider to the fly...
As a member of the Evidence Response Team, dead hookers aren't exactly Kimberly's specialty. The young agent is five months pregnant - she has other things to worry about than an alleged lunatic who uses spiders to do his dirty work. But Kimberly's own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer. And now, without any bodies and with precious few clues, it's all too clear that a serial killer has found the key to the perfect murder...or Kimberly is chasing a crime that never happened.
Kimberly's caught in a web more lethal than any spider's, and the more she fights for answers, the more tightly she's trapped. What she doesn't know is that she's close - too close - to a psychopath who makes women's nightmares come alive, and if he has his twisted way, it won't be long before it's time for Kimberly, too...

Maybe from the performers. From the author, probably not.
The author. She wrote the drek. She should read it.
Disappointed that I wasted my money on this book
I have read all of her books and love them, but I could not listen to parts of this one because the sexual abuse of children was too graphic and disturbing. For that reason, I do not recommend this book.
An intense suspenseful book, but extremely creepy. I felt very uncomfortable listening to this book. The description od the book did not match the story. Also, the same narrator voice is used for several characters , making it very confusing. Probably skip this author in the future.
This book is as so vividly written in a completely demented way! I felt like this was one long a$$ episode of criminal minds. It was scary and a made me feel a little sick at times. But at the same time I could not stop listening. I was riveted and it left me ready to buy The Neighbor.
I enjoy Lisa Gardner very much, this is the only book I would not revisit. Best- that Kimberly Quincy is involved. Least- the content. This book is heavy into child/pedophilia rape.
It would have to be entirely new subject matter.
I enjoy her voice very much, the story telling is excellent.
No. However the main character is a central character in another Gardner book. "The Neighbor" I believe.
I enjoy dark and gritty, but not vivid pedophilia, this is one of those you can't unsee things you do not want to see...same with this listen.
