John Lutz is fascinated by the nighttime dangers that await women alone.

In The Night Spider, he improvises a new variation on this theme with a thriller about a serial killer who preys upon women living in high-rises. With few visible means of entry, the mysterious stalker kills women while they sleep in their beds behind securely locked doors. Like his namesake, he leaves his victims wrapped in their bed sheets and stabbed repeatedly, having them slowly bleed to death with their mouths frozen in a silent scream. The few clues left on the scene point to a wall-crawling, glass-cutting predator who easily eludes the best minds on the police force. Now a determined detective must stop him—before time runs out for his next victim.

    " I knew it!! There were more than one spider. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gwendolyn | 5/7/2013

    " Very poorly researched. It was not a case where 'suspension of disbelieve' could be called for; it was simply unbelievable. It deserves one star, but I really have to hate a book to do that, and, when you love stories, that happens infrequently. Would not recommend to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandie | 4/1/2012

    " For on the edge of your seat suspense try John Lutz, this man spins a tale like you can't believe. I picked this book up and was caught in the web in the first sentance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Schubert | 2/18/2012

    " Good plot and creepy villain reminiscent of Koontz. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/8/2012

    " It was a good book, I think it could have been more exciting though, I've read other books, that totally shocked you, but this was still a good book. I liked the romance parts of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin Wollina | 12/15/2011

    " I listened to the audiobookversion: the narrator (Scott Brick) saved the story for me ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ReneeB | 9/1/2011

    " Scary & suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kcduecker | 8/17/2011

    " I like the book it was a fast read. Plan on reading the rest of the Night Series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric_W | 3/29/2011

    " This has been re-released as Night Victims. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billie Cubic | 3/11/2011

    " This author is a little stuck on a theme in his writing so far. If you can be patient through the first few chapters to differentiate the charactors it improves greatly. Loved the twists and turns of this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 2/23/2011

    " Surprising twist at the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 2/15/2011

    " Personally I would rate this a very weak 3 stars. It should have ended sooner. In fact I thought I was done 100 pages before the book ended. I will say that if you like James Patterson then you would probably like John Lutz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 1/9/2011

    " Really enjoyed this book, very exciting and good characters. "

    " All I brought on vacation were Lutz books. I had read a few before and knew I really enjoyed them. This one was no different. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marsha | 6/17/2009

    " It's a little hokey of a title, but not so bad for a mindless mystery read. Nothing special about the language or description of events or people. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 6/4/2009

    " Very slow book. A good author but not his best book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/27/2009

    " Somewhat predictable serial killer mystery, but it has a likable main character and genuine suspense in places. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BBBTerri | 11/6/2008

    " Easy recreational thriller. Read on the plane from NYC to L.A. and couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kcduecker | 8/27/2008

    " All the Night Series are the same, but different. They are a good read. "
