After some hesitation, Charley accepts Jill's offer and looks ahead to fame when her book is published. Still, she is increasingly troubled with regard to her sessions with Jill, a sadistic killer who presents a sad tale of her own experiences.
The core plot of this mystery presents an intriguing premise, as Charley gathers information to tell Jill's story. In the world of Joy Fielding, there is always dark mayhem whenever sociopaths interface with the "normal" population.
I generally enjoyed this book, as I enjoy all the work of Ms. Fielding...but I don't think this was her best offering to date. For one thing, I was half-way through the book and found that not much had been done to further advance the main concept of Charley's book interviews. There was some game-playing on the part of Jill that delayed Charley's progress, and instead, the reader was given an in-depth and often repeated narrative addressing Charley's family situation - the mother who abandoned her, her interaction with sisters, her frequent rescues of brother Bram from the excesses of drugs and alcohol - etc. etc.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

It wouldn't be a stretch to say this is probably the best Joy Fielding book I have read so far. It really kept me guessing until the very end. Well developed characters. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Lily
Expertly written with one twist after another, Charley's Web was a well-spun tale. Some of the themes were quite disturbing, yet I found myself trapped in the storyteller's web,... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Kendra
