I was hooked from the start by the exotic setting(s), international verbage/dialects, and the fast paced spy-novel type thrills that run rampant in The Tangled Web.
Ms. Lane's thriller is set primarily on a Caribbean island, replete with tropical lush scene painting and intriguing local color. The characters who hail from the island range in character and style from rich white landowners to the delightful housekeeper, Ivy, who was one of my favorite (albeit minor) characters.
The dialog felt genuine, as did the frustration experienced by main characters Logan Armstrong (international tycoon) and Lauren Anderson (journalist) as they plummeted through this adventure without being able to fully communicate their feelings or intentions until the very end.
I won't rehash the plot here--since so many others have done so very thoroughly--but suffice it to say there is great treachery ongoing in the Caribbean political scenes behind the bright and touristy island of blue oceans and heady-scented flowers. The Prime Minister has become corrupt, putting his island's future in peril due to his links with the drug cartels and his own selfish purposes. Two plots interweave to assassinate this monster-one driven by a truly frightening cartel head, Maria Echevarria, and the other by well-meaning government officials who know that the Prime Minister must go.
I enjoyed this romp across the globe: from New York to London, from Prague to the Caribbean, it held my interest throughout. Well done, Ms. Lane!

I look forward to enjoying more from J.P. Lane's vivid imagination.
Like a spiders web this is a well woven story of intrigue, corruption and the matter of who will solve the problem of Governmental greed and subterfuge.
The Prime Minister of a small yet beautiful Caribbean island is as corrupt and greedy as the day is long. Can a man be so power hungry that he is willing to let his own country get swallowed by a world of drugs and let the have nots suffer in poverty while the wealthy and elite benefit from the crime that results from it.
Can a small group of government officials take matters into their own hands to rid the country of a scourge who will drag them into poverty and crime. Can a Cartel insenced by his greed come to the conclusion that he needs to be cut out of the equation? The question remains as to which group will beat the other to the punch.
Meanwhile love is in the air between Lauren and Logan who have been dragged into the middle of the web with no way out but to go along with a horrible but necessary ride.
Can the police solve the murders of five tourists and an undercover police officer trying to catch the drug smugglers at their own game? Maybe but I am saying you need to buckle up an prepare for extreme turbulence on this trip.
J.P. Lane has penned a riveting tale of corruption, murder and greed with great talent. There are a lot of players coming to the party so you need a score card but that just adds to the excitement. I give this one five golden palm trees for grabbing my attention and not letting me turn off the tablet. Kudos for faced paced storytelling and a hot plot.
