Publisher's Summary

Twenty-year-old Kendele Byers is savagely killed and buried in a shallow grave. She had a violent past, a bizarre, kinky line of work, and the suspect list grows longer every day.

But when another woman is murdered, Detective Mitchell Lonnie realizes that there's something much more sinister afoot: a connection between the two murders. Both victims had received a clue hinting at their oncoming demise several minutes before they were attacked. There's a serial killer in Glenmore Park. Even worse, he seems to be accelerating his murder pace.

Now Mitchell and his partner need to locate the killer before more innocent women die. But when his sister gets involved, Mitchell's focus begins to unravel. Soon his pursuit becomes personal, and the stakes rise very high.

The JK Rowling of police procedural / crime novels

Mike Omer is my new favorite author of police procedural / crime / serial killers novels. His writing style reminds me of JK Rowling with the suspense and the characters.

My favorite books have multiple perspectives just like Mike Omer, the killer, the cops, and the victims.

Also this has more of a current day feel with both the setting and the jokes.

I am now constantly trying to find new authors who remind me of Mike Omer.

Another good series to keep up with!!!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a police procedural with a rather twisted antagonist. He sends beautiful women a text message on their cellphones with a picture of what he is going to kill them with, though not always a sinister item as one victim is run over with a car.
This book has all the makings for a good fast paced suspense. The strong detective, his not so strong partner and a younger sister who is trying to move up in in the department by acting as bait to trap a deranged killer.
This is my first Mike Omer book but it will not be my last! I can't wait to get the rest of this series.
Eric Martin does a super job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This narrarator is NOT for me

I'm sure he's a nice human. However he does ZERO vocal modification for any of the chapters, characters, etc. I appreciate the skilled audible narrators who take on minor vocal adjustments to help anchor you within the story and each character. When you read EVERY SINGLE LINE exactly the same, the story becomes almost impossible to follow. Mike Omer is a pretty great writer. Eric has a nice voice that is easy to listen to, just needs to broaden vocal skills or consider reading just documentaries.

Outstanding police procedural!

Another excellent novel I listened to because of a review by Audible Listener Shelley! Spider's Web is a wonderful action and suspense novel with vivid and interesting characters including a brother (an experienced detective) and his younger sister (just graduated from the police academy). The story is about efforts to solve a serial murder mystery when the young female cop is a potential victim. The novel is the first book in a three novel and one novella series.

This is the first novel I have listened to narrated by Eric Martin. He is a very, very good narrator.

Awesome!

It is rare when I cannot guess at least part of the outcome. This story keeps the twists and turns coming to the very end! I won't say anything that could spoil your fun, but the closing scene left me chuckling and satified! Definitely a good listen!

Interesting

Like cop thrillers this is a great book to read. I liked the characters and the glimpse we get into their lives. Interesting way the story unfolds and the imaginative way the killer in the book uses as methods to kill.
