The Latrodectus Murders by Jack Gannon and Cyndi Williams-Barnier is a wonderful blend of thriller and crime fiction, a story that follows the dark work of a serial killer. Lacy has been betrayed by many people, and now she is out with her lover and friend to locate and exact revenge on anyone who ever hurt her, and her revenge doesn’t come in easy doses. With a foolproof plan, she seduces each victim with her sexual prowess, injecting venom into the victim as she climaxes, and watches the victim die. What will astonish readers is the way she displays her victims. Can she be caught? Will she make a mistake and give her location away or leave a trail? It’s for the reader to find out.
This is an absorbing story, dark and oddly seductive.
