Publisher's Summary

An ugly duckling as a child, Jodie Bentley had two dreams in life - to be beautiful and rich. She's achieved the first, with a little help from a plastic surgeon, and now she's working hard on the second. Her philosophy on money is simple: you can either earn it or marry it. Marrying is easy; it's getting rid of the husband afterwards that's harder. That takes real skill. But hey, practice makes perfect....
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is feeling the pressure from his superiors; his previous case is still giving him sleepless nights; there have been major developments with his missing wife, Sandy; and an old adversary is back. But worse than all of this, he now believes a black widow is operating in his city. One with a venomous mind…..and venomous skills. Soon Grace comes to the frightening realization that he may have underestimated just how dangerous this lady is.

Enjoyably Unpredictable

My first book by this author, I enjoyed the many intertwined subplots as much as the main storyline. The narrator had to enunciate many different accents, which he managed very well. I could not put the book down after the mid-way point. I expect that I will be buying a few more by this author.

I liked it better than other James Books

If you think this series is for you then start with a book from the beginning of the series rather than the middle or end. The main character, Roy Grace's personal life is a big part of all the books in the series, as well as the lives of the secondary characters as well.

The story's twisted black widow helped me enjoy this book better than the other James book I have read in the Roy Grace series. I find the series however to much life a soap opera so I've given up on reading more.

The dialogue at times is cheesy and just does not ring true. There is a lot of thoughts and phrases are are repeatedly over and over again in most of the James books I've read. The narration is good and the recording is good. The book is a crime fiction that's NOT gritty, gory or dark.
