A Gripping Thriller - I just finished reading "Weave a Murderous Web." I had been looking forward to the thriller's release since I read two other novels by outstanding authors, Anne Rothman-Hicks and Kenneth Hicks.

I wasn't disappointed. Immediately I liked the protagonist, Jane Larson the smart, witty, and sarcastic litigator who takes on a pro bono case as a favor to her friend, Francine, a legal assistant at her law firm. From the start this reader knew that wasn't a great idea. The story weaves through many twists and turns leading to betrayal, deceit, danger, and murder.

The complex story with it's great plot had the multidimensional characters and smart dialogue that I have come to expect in the Rothman-Hicks and Hicks novels. I loved New York City as the backdrop and pictured areas of the city as they were mentioned.

This novel is very suspenseful, twisty, tricky, full of surprises and red herrings, which I love. Just about every character acts suspicious and has something they could possibly be guilty of, which makes it hard to guess who the real killer is. I did suspect who the killer was but I didn't want it to be this person because I liked this person. I found it a bit slow to get into the real action and excitement. The characters were very well developed, each character was unique and well-described. I found the writing uneven and hard to get into at first, with the writing in some chapters a bit stilted and full of big words during the first chapters while others read very smoothly. As the story progresses, however, the writing improved a lot and I was able to enjoy it and not get distracted by big words anymore. I don't know whether that's because the story got more interesting and exciting or because the writing itself improved, or maybe it was both lol. I found the story confusing because I don't know much about law and some of the activities the characters were engaged in, I didn't even know they were illegal activities, let alone that these activities had a name. These weren't violent street crimes but rather, corporate crimes, and I don't know very much about crimes of fraud that can be committed inside the walls of major companies. Since I didn't realize that these were such serious crimes, I also had no idea of the extent that anyone would want to go to to cover up these crimes, so that part of the story lost me a bit. For this reason and because of the uneven writing during the first chapters, I didn't give this book 5 stars. But once you get over that and understand the nature and seriousness of the crimes involved, the story really grips you and leaves you in suspense.Read more ›

There is a whole lot going on in this book to keep readers' minds engaged and fingers turning pages. At its core, Weave a Murderous Web is a mystery, but it is multi-tiered and includes a wide cast of characters and just as many red herrings to keep readers guessing at the numerous whodunits. Included in the list of issues to be resolved and solved are: murder, arson, theft, drugs, cheating, bribery, blackmail, and a sprinkling of love, lust, humor, and heartbreak.

The characters are particularly well-written -- from the couple who run the local diner to the flamboyant news reporter -- each memorable in his or her own way. There are loathsome characters, but among the rest, the authors expertly tug readers back and forth so that it's never clear-cut who is trustworthy and who is not. Main character Jane Larson is the first to recognize her own flaws, but she's also not certain she's ready to fix them head-on. That, and her sometimes lack of good judgment when she knows better, makes her more realistic.

The authors did several interesting things in telling the story. First, the story is told from Jane's perspective and Jane directly addresses the readers. Second, in the beginning, Jane is telling the story in reflection and notes to herself and readers that she didn't recognize signs of things to come as they were presented to her. And finally, though it is first person point of view, readers only selectively know why Jane does some of the things she does. These things, plus the many forms of figurative language Jane uses to convey her thoughts, make the writing enjoyable.Where the writing could be improved is by a thorough editing; there are consistent comma and other punctuation errors, several agreement errors, and a few typos.

Authors Ken Hicks and Anne Rothman Hicks has given us a murder,mystery that has a lot of twists and turns in it with some danger hanging around every corner. This story just seems to suck you in and hold you there from start to finish and will leave you wanting more. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this great story. Jane Larson is asked by her friend Francine to check out the murder of lawyer Mark Samuel ,who just happen to be in the legal process for Gail Hawkins. But not soon afterwards Jane fines herself in the bosom of drugs,money, and some big surprises ,and someone is out to exterminate her. But will Jane with everything that has happened and with all the bodies that are piling up around her ,and her own life on the line and the danger that has surrounded her really be able ,to quickly fine out whats go on and to uncover the truth soon enough . Will Jane be able to fine out who is murdering all these people and why ? The characters were amazing and that is what made this story flow so nicely through the whole story. Jane has little bit of an attitude and is totally smart .I could go on and tell you more about this thrilling story ,but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend that you read this story ,you won't be disappointed.
