Customer Review

on June 28, 2001
If you like following a trial, with simple explanations, much dry humor, and true suspense, then Margaret Millar's "Spider Webs" fills the bill. We get a close look at the judge, at the prosecutor, the defense lawyer, the court clerk, and the accused murderer, who seems to be a magnet for all the others.
He is a copper-colored black man, from the Islands, a skipper of a million dollar yacht, who has sailed to Santa Felicia County, California from the Islands, with two crew members, in preparatiion for their next big race to Hawaii. But Cully, that's his name, gets taken in by a middle-aged lady, brings her aboard the ship and what follows, the good Lord only knows, for the lady disappears, and is eventually found in a forest of kelp, off-shore, lifeless. That is what the trial is all about.
The book has a surprise ending. There is something for the young, the middle-aged and the old, to mull over in this tightly plotted book - for the best laid plans of "mice and men" are easily toppled by life's quirky turns.
