We are first introduced to Caitlin, a girl who has lived in the same town nearly her entire life. She wants to be alone – she’s fine alone. In fact, she’s so wonderfully content being a hermit that she isn’t even thinking of her ex-boyfriend, Nate, who recently dumped her. #lie
GIRLFRIEND CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT HIM! Ooo Nate. The dirty scumbag.
Caitlin is trying hard to forget her ex (and all the girls taking pictures with… that… THAT MAN CHILD!) At least Caitlin has her research to keep her mind off of things. She’s going to go to London and research her trees and be free… finally.
“Your qualifications are impressive, and your research initiative is ambitious. However, another finalist was selected to receive the fellowship…”
Well. So much for that plan. No man. No fellowship. Isn’t life just splendid.
Caitlin still has an opportunity to go to London for her research, and while overseas she meets some devilishly creepy men. Her advisor, her ex – oh yes he comes back in the picture – and a slew of strangers that find enjoyment in her looming doom. Watching. Waiting.
DING DING DING! You guessed it! Caitlin has a stalker! Or two? Is it her young advisor she’s doing research under? Is it her ex? Her best friend? Are they conspiring to try and ruin her life, teach her a lesson?! Gaawd who would do something like this? Wait… isn’t Nate living in London, too? Boy oh boy, there’s trouble waiting for our sweet sheltered girl.
Let me tell you this: her advisor gives me the creeps.
“You had better be at the car park near the Connaught Water tomorrow at 6:00am. I don’t want any excuses. And keep your f***ing phone on in case I need to reach you. I’m your advisor, and I am your priority now. If something happens again, you call me first.”
Oh yea? Talk about alpha extreme over here.
As things go from bad to worse, Caitlin instantaneously goes from wanting privacy and being left alone, to wishing someone she knew was near. Let’s just hope she doesn’t trust the wrong people - and of course she does… how do you think she got into this debacle in the first place?
“Is there someone I can call to be with you?... Any family or any friends?... I know you are a visitor to England, but do you not have anyone over here?...”
Ummm. No. Caitlin has no one. NADA. Trapped. Helpless. What's a girl to do?...
Carolina Carter writes thrillers like no one else. You know those terrible dreams where you’re being chased, but you’re moving. so. slow? Gaawd I felt like I was tossed onto a semipermeable membrane and all of my surroundings were passing through, but I was just stuck there… watching everything float to the other side. My blood was thick with anticipation! Oooo the sweet anxiety! (Why do I do this to myself?) Carolina filtered me through a volatile, porous material and I came out a NEW WOMAN!
In the Twisted Web is a dark, realistic portrayal of fear. There is certainly sexual tension between Caitlin and the men in this book, but it falls into the categories of suspense, crime, and women’s fiction more than anything. The context is definitely smutty, and almost uncontrollably raw.
In the Twisted Web is a flawless – and haunting – depiction of how our world is connected. The writing is fast-paced, enticing, and evocative. We’ve got sexual tension, mystery, and suspense wrapped up into the ultimate package; it’s a tailor-made read that will launch you into an eerie sinister world.
“In The Twisted Web” takes us to a frighteningly realistic edge of our society, where Caitlin Alexander, our ingenue, must fight for her survival. This story is so relevant to what we are collectively surrendering in terms of privacy and security, that it may just as well be ripped from a current BBC headline.
Interestingly, Ms. Carter skillfully weaves incredibly thought provoking modern biology which serves as a beautiful naturalistic reflection of the dark, contorted, underbelly of our internet. Between nature and a technological nightmare, Ms. Carter exposes real humanity. It will leave you with chills, and a terrifying perspective of our “connected” society.
A must read. Bravo.
