Spider's Web

Book: Spider's Web
Series: Glenmore Park #1
Author: Mike Omer

There’s a killer prowling the streets. He stalks and murders young women seemingly at random, and he always warns them first…
Twenty year old Kendele Byers is savagely killed and buried in a shallow grave. She had a violent past, a bizarre kinky line of work, and the suspect list grows longer every day.

But when another woman is murdered, Detective Mitchell Lonnie realizes that there’s something much more sinister afoot, a connection between the two murders. Both victims had received a clue hinting their incoming demise several minutes before they were attacked. There’s a serial killer in Glenmore Park. Even worse, he seems to be accelerating his murder pace.

Now Mitchell and his partner need to locate the killer before more innocent women die. But when his sister gets involved, Mitchell’s focus begins to unravel. Soon his pursuit becomes personal, and the stakes rise very high… -Goodreads

Review: Spider's Web is a police procedural novel which takes place outside of Boston. A killer stalks, provides warning and then kills young women.  Detective Lonnie and his partner are on the case. 

This book was a nice surprise. I liked how Omer didn't focus on one detective and gave perspective from multiple people on the force. I felt like I was reading the script to a Law & Order episode (and I'm a huge fan of L&O, this was a good thing). This was a mystery but not a "thriller" and I enjoyed the change of pace. 

Grade: 4/5
