Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Evie Sullivan has her eye on making partner at her high-profile Manhattan law firm, and she's more than willing to sacrifice her personal life to reach her goal. But when she's accused of slipshod work—bogus expense reports, incomplete letters to important clients—she discovers that someone at the firm has stolen her identity and is sending e-mails from her secured PC. Not knowing who to trust, Evie is forced to do her own investigating if she is to uncover the truth behind who's sabotaging her. Schaab's debut legal thriller is dense and intense and plays effectively with the visceral fear that everyone's identity is open for theft. A series with potential. Wilkens, Mary Frances

A fast-paced and fun legal thriller, great for vacation reading. The tension builds steadily until the last few pages. The story is unique, weaving together elements of mystery, high-tech law, and even some romance. The author has done her research and the legal and high-tech details ring true. Evie is a sympathetic character and her cat-and-mouse game with the bad guys will keep you turning the pages. Looking forward to hearing more from Susan Schaab!

A friend is related to the author, and I agreed to read the book as soon as I was told it was coming out. When the volume arrived and I saw the title, I thought, "Oh, no. This is going to be icky." Then I started reading, and could barely put it down. Although the subject of identity theft is scary enough, and I hated to see the heroine also the victim, the light touch of romance, the intelligence of the characters, and the comfortable realism of the legal, socio-political, and economic particulars made the book a five-star winner for me. The behaviors of the characters were as consistent, human and entertaining as those found in a book by a well-seasoned author. Way to go, Susan!!!

My policy is, "if I pay for it" I read all of it. For the first time (and I've read some pretty awful stuff) I could not get through a book. Endless, boring legal stuff. It's not a courtroom drama, just endless explanations of mundane work done in white collar firms. I like computer thrillers, but this is set - or written - when the huge law firm plugged into telephone extensions. Even I've never had to do that. I forced myself through most of it, but it never improved. No surprises. Shallow characters. Superficial love interest. Unrealistic scenes such as someone sitting in a car during a huge thunderstorm and looking up to see if there's a full moon because crazy things are going on. I have resisted writing any negative reviews, because I admire anyone who writes a book. But this is not worth it. I gave it 2 stars because the author seems very sweet, and so does her mom, but the title is the most interesting part of this book.

For someone who seldom takes the time to finish a magazine article I was the most amazed of anyone I know to find Susan Schaabs' Wearing The Spider on my very own nightstand. Not only was I anxious each night to see what happened next, but I have become sold on the idea of suspense novels altogether because of this book. I was completely taken in by Susans' style. The intrigue never slowed down and each chapter kept me wanting more.I didn't want the story to end. Thanks for making me a certified book reader and not just a magazine junky. Please don't make us wait too long for your next thriller. marc bachman

After reading the reviews, I was surprised how much I disliked this book. If my OCD had not kicked in, I would have gave up reading it about half way. The main plot had potential intrigue, but the author just seemed to drag it out repeating over and over the same set of circumstances. Many of the topics focused on repeated legal, computer, or statistical detailed information that only frustrated me. And I can't even begin to explain my disgust with the so called relationship between Eves and Joe. They meet on a plane, have one date and she's spilling confidential client details. They then fall in love in the mist of all her drama...unbelievable. There was no depth to either character or their relationship other than the "mystery" at the office. No real mystery there either. It was pretty obvious who did it and why, just don't know why it took her so long to clue in on how to unravel it.

Wearing the Spider (A Suspense Novel) (Legal Thriller) (Thriller)

I found this book on Amazon's bargain book rack, and was surprised that has none of the qualities that would suggest it belongs in that category -- except that it is Susan Schaab's debut novel. It is well written, and the author keeps the story gripped in suspense throughout. It is a page-turner that I couldn't put down. I think this book has earned its place beside those from authors who have received critical acclaim in this genre. I look forward to reading more from Susan Schaab.

It all starts with a simple question from Evie Sullivan's secretary. Why is there an expense receipt from a hotel Evie never visited? It seems like an innocent mistake - lots of people in Evie's law firm visit Texas - but then Evie starts noticing other things. The phone logs are incorrect. People she's never spoken with seem to think they know her. Strange emails start appearing in her inbox. A client is under the impression she's been working on a project to which she has never been assigned.

She'd like to think it's innocent, but the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that she's in over her head... and that it's not innocent at all. Evie has been targeted, picked as the scapegoat in an elaborate illegal scheme that leads right to the partner whose sexual advances she rejected a few months earlier.... or would if the trail didn't stop disappearing.
Forget making partner. Now Evie has to worry about keeping herself alive as she dances the he said, she said tango and attempts to recover the electronic data that supports her story.

It's almost unbelievable, and yet it rings frighteningly true. Schaab takes her readers on an engrossing yet amazingly educational journey through the dark, hidden world of high-level corporate crime. It all sounds confusing, but Schaab knows her stuff and has a gift for making it understandable without letting her readers feel as though they're being talked down to or taught. Technical explanations are fit seamlessly into the story and the prose flows from action to explanation and back again without a single blip.

That makes it all the more realistic... and all the more terrifying.
