No good deed goes unpunished. When Jane Larson—a hot-shot litigator for a large firm in New York City—helps out a friend, she is sucked into the unfamiliar world of divorce and child support.
Jane's discovery of the deadbeat dad’s hidden assets soon unravels a web of lies, drugs, and murder that keeps getting more dangerous.
Soon, Jane is involved in a high stakes race to recover a missing suitcase of cash and catch the murderer before she becomes the next victim. (Summary via Goodreads)
You couldn't ask for a better title than Weave a Murderous Web for Anne Rothman-Hicks and Ken Hicks book. The story that they tell is a maze of people and situations that seem to interlock all of the characters.....some of which do not unravel until the explosive end.
The story begins with a friend asking a friend for help...something as simple and innocent as that one favor will set the ball in motion. Jane, at the time, does not know how that one favor asked by her friend, Francine, will lead her down a road of drugs, murder, lies, and money.
But Jane doesn't stop, even when her own life is threatened and she seems to be getting deeper and deeper into the web. It also becomes clear to her that she doesn't know who she can trust or believe. Even those closest to her are questionable......
Weave a Murderous Web will have you on the edge of your seat and may cause papercuts from turning the pages to quickly. But it will all be worth it in the end.....I hope you will be as shocked as I was.
