And now I have to wait another whole year for her "latest." I finished CHARLEY'S WEB earlier this afternoon, and my heart is still beating fast. The author is a master at creating credible psychological suspense. Fielding's characters are flawed -- I didn't particularly admire Charley, certainly did not like her long-lost/recently found mother, etc., but as usual I could not put the book down. Fielding's characters STAY with you, and even if the mystery wanes, one is drawn to the characters. Suspense is the name of her game, and no one can build it, and certainly end it, like Joy Fielding.

Joy Fielding has done it again. This book, as with her previous novels, has just the right combination of suspense, romance, pathos and humor to keep you hooked from page one through to the end. A warning to the faint hearted: The details of a child murder committed by the prisoner that the protagonist interviews are grisly. It's a tough subject to tackle in fiction and I admire Fielding's courage in trying.

After a series of books that weren't very good (Lost, Puppet, Heartstopper) I wasn't expecting much from this one. I read this book in one day - it was very entertaining. I think it's her best book since Whispers & Lies. I liked the main character. I didn't think it would happen, but I'm glad she finally wrote about a character who had a great relationship with her kids. I wish the book was a little bit longer - I wanted to read more about Charley's father and sisters.

Joy Fielding has been one of my favorite authors for many years. I'm so happy she still continues to write good books. I'm looking forward to the next book.

"Oh what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive." -- Sir Walter Scott from "Marmion" "(1st ed. -1808) in re Flodden Field

Charlene (Charley) Webb is a reporter carved from stone and dipped in iron. Her job as a writer is her way of living up to her name. Her sisters are Ann and Emily and her brother, Bram (instead of Branwell) are named in honor of the Bronte family. It should come as no surprise that one of Charley's sisters has an illustrious literary career and the other a toehold in the acting world. Charley's mother has left the family for another woman and Charley and her siblings see neither hide nor hair of her for many years. The Webb children were aged 2-10 when their mother left their bitter father, a self-pitying, unloving man who is determined to wallow in misery for her partner in Australia.

Charley spoofs on her name as well, by linking the literary thread to "Charlotte's Web," a classic in children's literature. Her own two children, Franny, 8 and James, 5 have different fathers and Charley was not married to either man. She remains cordial with them. As another reviewer on the US boards pointed out, Charley is the object of every man's desire whenever she follows leads about Jill's case. That was very implausible to me. Readers are tacitly expected to table reality and buy into Charley's sexual magnetism that draws every man she meets like the magnet attracts metal.

Jill Rohmer, who is jailed for child molestation and murder contacts Charley as she wants a book written about her case. She directs Charley to a lawyer she feels can write a book about the case. Jailed and awaiting her 15 minutes of fame, Jill slithers throughout the book like a serpent. She drops hints that she had a partner whom she calls "Jack.

Palm Beach Post columnist Charlotte (Charley) Webb frequently gets fan mail, and occasionally hate mail, usually just from an offended subscriber with an urge to vent. But most of the hate mail does not get up close and personal, at least not to the point of threatening Charley's children. Of course, any of her astute readers knows she has children because she writes about all sorts of life's experiences, including her kids' antics, in her column. And now one of those astute readers has threatened them.

Single mother of two, sister to three, disowned daughter of a self-proclaimed bitter old man and recently reclaimed child of a runaway mom, Charley has a host of family issues to deal with. Real whoppers. But her children -- Franny, her serious eight-year-old daughter, and James, her younger, more artistic son --- mean everything to her. Maybe because of her dysfunctional background or because she just loves them with her whole heart; whatever the reason, any hint of danger surrounding the two sends Charley into a panic.

While her life is pretty full lately, Charley has been going through a dry spell when it comes to men. That's okay, though, because she's not sure she's all that successful in the relationship arena. In fact, she's not sure she's successful at a lot of things: being a good friend (she has none), or neighbor (she annoys hers), or co-worker (she doesn't talk to them). She's convinced, though, that she excels in her parenting skills.

Everything seems to be going along fine (considering) until Charley gets a letter from convicted child killer Jill Rohmer. The letter proposes that Charley write a book revealing the true story behind the murders. What writer could resist such an offer? Certainly not Charley.
