    "A great teaser read"

    This is a really interesting quick read. It has shades of Sherlock Holmes and a bit of a Steampunk feel. It definitely caught my interests and I am curious about this series. This book is an excellent appetizer to tempt a reader into trying one of the full length novels in the collection.

    I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Wayne Farrell. He does a terrific job of keeping the character's voices distinct and consistent. I loved his steady pace and engaging tone. I am definitely going to look for more of his work!

    Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

    Story
    "Wainwright, can I snoop through your lab?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of And They Called Her Spider to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I like Wayne Farrell's rendition of James Wainwright with his scientific mindset and distaste for frippery.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James Wainwright, because us nerds need to stick together.


    Which character – as performed by Wayne Farrell – was your favorite?

    Since the narrative was through Wainwright's eyes, I will go with him again. Farrell pulls off this character very well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Two men bound by condescension fight evil with brains & style.
