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...

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elaina | 2/18/2014

    " This was a horrible book. It was very gruesome. I could not even finish reading it. It was about spiders, lots of spiders for one thing and then rape along with all kinds of other stuff. I would not recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 TeriC | 2/17/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 2/6/2014

    " Creepy read. My first Kimberly Quincy book, although it is #6 in the series... Not sure how I feel about the protaganist.... The villian was definitely stomach-churning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erica | 1/29/2014

    " I want to like this book more because there is a good mystery in there and a scene toward the end if finding the bodies that is very creative. However, I had a very difficult time with some parts of the book that involved sexual abuse of children. The author didn't get too graphic, but it was enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekah | 1/23/2014

    " disturbing content, but a definite page turner "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lain | 1/18/2014

    " I like creepy and I can handle gross, but this book crossed the line. Just too creepy and too gross. I also found it difficult to follow, and kind of nonsensical at points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T. | 1/18/2014

    " Sort of disturbing with the pedophile references, but once you get past all that...the book is a very good suspense thriller that ends up being worth reading. "

    " Interesting. A couple twists that were surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 1/4/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 11/24/2013

    " Classic Lisa Gardner! With a real "ick" factor built in. Even when you can guess what is going to happen next, it still makes you jump. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beve | 11/22/2013

    " I did not care for the subject matter-- abuse of children, serial killers with an affinity for spiders is way too creepy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 11/15/2013

    " A good murder mystery that keeps you guessing. I didn't realize this is the 6th in a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesli | 1/26/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 8/31/2011

    " This book was kind of hard to follow in the way it skipped back and forth from Kimberly to Rita to the Man. It all came together in the end but at times I was lost. "

    " Strange book. If you are an arachnophobe (sp?) you may not want to read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 4/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 3/11/2011

    " Couldn't go to bed until I finished this book.

    Story line involved the daughter, Kimberly, of Pierce Quincy and although I like the tangent of her storylines to his I enjoy more of Quincy and Rainie in the books.

    Can't wait for the next one! "
