“The man,” as our protagonist is referred to throughout the book, is a former CIA agent who’s spent the last few decades experiencing the worst of what men can be and do. He is hardened, cold, calculating, and will not hesitate to end anyone who creates the slightest hindrance to his agenda. Even Makayla, a nineteen year old street rat and potential love interest, knows her life is over the second she becomes an inconvenience. So what makes “the man” so damn sexy? What has random women throwing their panties his way (literally), and abandoning all reason and self respect to serve as his momentary plaything? He does not lie to them, or butter them up with pretty words. He simply tells them what he wants and they succumb to his whims. Perhaps they can tell he isn’t easily impressed, thus it is an honor to get beyond his metal stare and barbed wire disposition, even if just to be gagged, bound, and pumped for an hour.
“The man” is never without purpose and focus. It is part of what makes him so deadly. Now he has a personal score to settle through a plan that has been years in the making. Lives will be destroyed, people will come undone, and you will be hard-pressed not to find your own truth in watching it all unfold. Yes, there is lots of effing in this book, the deliciously filthy kind that makes you bite the edge of your bottom lip just thinking about it, but the author is giving us so much more. The characters have such dimension and the story, albeit bizarre, is incredibly realistic. Anything is believable if you can be made to believe it, and Dalton sells this one like an auctioneer. For the record, chapter one alone is worth the cover price. Read. This. Book. It is soooooo good.
"The man,” is a dark figure. He is an ex CIA agent, and he is flawed and unemotional, and in the weirdest way, I was drawn to him. He is not kind, and yet he has that sexier-than-hell-but-I-only-want-him-in-my-fantasies flavor. Even more, Dalton allows us glimpses into his nature that show he is not all he appears to be. He is not completely shrouded in darkness, which gives us room to empathize with him, even if in small doses.
If you're looking for an erotic read, the erotic elements begin from that very first scene, drawing the reader into the main character's persona immediately, but Spider is so more than that. It is filled with literary constructs, such as the flashback, to great effect. History is weaved in as well, making this dark tale so believable, it is chilling. You can imagine him, stoic and a victim of his past. You can imagine the teenage prostitute, lost and alone. And you can imagine the victim of kidnapping, confused and unhappy with her previous life.
What is even more remarkable is the way Dalton weaves the tale, just as a spider might, and the ending sent me reeling, sitting straight up in bed with my heart beating a mile a minute. I just didn’t see it coming. And I thought about the story long after I put it down.
I loved this book. Truly. It is part dark romance, part mystery, part thriller, part historical fiction, and what is left is a web that you are guiltily happy to have been trapped in. Eagerly awaiting the sequel.
