Publisher's Summary

The highway from Los Angeles to the Palm Springs desert is parched, unforgiving, and deadly. In the suffocating stillness of a car trunk, a man, his mouth and hands bound with duct tape, awaits his fate. What possible enemy could be bitter enough to commit such a heinous crime? And when will the monster make another move?

Ali Reynolds is traveling that same blistering, lonesome highway, looking forward to putting her past behind her. But her cheating husband is in a hurry for a divorce, and the television network that wrongfully dismissed her for the sole sin of being over 40 will face her in court as well.

As she passes the site of a horrifying accident, Ali is grateful that it's no longer her job to report the news, until she finds out that the news is her own: the victim is Ali's cheating husband. And soon she'll find herself the prime suspect at the center of a terrifying web of evil.

A twisted and lethal drama of heart-pounding suspense, Web of Evil asks the question: If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, just what punishment could that fury unleash?

    All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!

    "Disappointed in you, Judy!"

    I've read almost all of Judy Jance's books, and I am sad to say that I wish I had given this one a miss. The dialogue left a lot to be desired, seemed quite juvenile in some places. I found it annoying that she had her heroine--a former newscaster--telling her friend, a homicide detective and retired Marine, how to go about investigating as well as micro-managing him. That is, when she wasn't completely ignoring his sound advice and getting herself into trouble. Yeesh, give me a break. It's so disappointing when one's favorite authors put their names to fare such as this.

    "Simply Awful"

    I've listened to all of J.A. Jances books, and this one is simply awful. Where in the world did those characters come from? The characters are not believeable, and the plot is childish and silly. That whole 'blog' thing was past awful. Don't waste your money on this listen.

    "Dreadful"

    This book was boring and predictable. The characters had no depth. The main character was simply unbelievable - that is, I didn't believe that anyone would act or talk this way. The whole blog thing was pathetic. Don't waste your money or a credit on this one.

    "not her best"

    Jance books are always a good listen and so is Web of Evil. Compared to her other books, however, the plotting is weak and the lead character's actions sometimes lacking in credibility.

    "I agree"

    I agree with the other posted reviews -- this was not J.A. Jance's best effort!

    Story
    "Repetition breeds contempt."
    Any additional comments?

    An hour into this story and every character and action of the last story is being retold. This isn't just boring and irritating, it says to me that the author - or editor - doesn't trust her story to stand alone.
    It is my experience that if an author is good, I'll find previous books to help me understand something I want to know.

    "Crockadoodle"

    This book grabbed my attention from the very first pages and I enjoyed every minute of it; was hard not to waste gas driving around so I could keep listening.

    "What a Steamer!"

    I'm a huge Jance fan, but this one isn't worth the listen. Her JP Beaumont and Joanna Brady mysteries are generally excellent. This series, however, needs a total rewrite. The main character is inane and foolish, the narrative is slow and draggy, the plot is transparent, the whole book had just too much blah blah blah. What a come down from such a good author.
