Hello and welcome to our stop on A Black Widow’s Web blog tour!
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Phil Martin for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The reviews below are 100% honest and all of her own views.
Estate agent Lawrence Hennessey has his eyes firmly on the prize, a future away from the mother of his daughter and a multi-million-pound property deal to fund his new life.
His dreams are shot to pieces though when he is arrested for the most heinous sexual crimes against his seemingly embittered ex, Summer, and their seven-year-old daughter, April.
He claims his absolute innocence, but the evidence is so strong that his world quickly turns against him. Having breached his bail conditions, he is sent to prison awaiting a trial that, with his life now in constant danger, may never come. Only one person stands with him; his sister Grace.
Desperate to break the allegiance between mother and daughter, Grace vows to leave no stone unturned in her quest to clear her brother’s name before it is too late.
She unearths a web of vicious deceit in Summer’s turbulent past but nothing to prove her brother’s innocence. She is convinced though that if she keeps digging she’ll unearth something much bigger about her brother’s accuser to weaken the validity of her claims.
But as the evidence against Lawrence gets more sinister, his alcoholism, blackouts and activity on the Dark Web paint a much different story to the one her brother is telling.
When Grace’s brother is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit she is determined to prove his innocence. But as she delves into the case to find evidence to overturn her brother’s arrest things are not as they seem…
Wow what an adrenaline ride that was! With a fast paced plot, from the moment I picked this book up I found I could not actually put it down. At one point I actually dropped the book on my face whilst falling asleep I was so set on reading that little bit more before I went to bed. This book had some rather dark moments, which added to the atmosphere of the story.
I don’t feel I can say much more about this book without giving away the storyline, so I will leave my review here. My final words are you should definitely pick up this book, and I will now be investigating Mr Martin’s back catalogue wondering why I haven’t read any of his books before!
