    I just really needed a straightforward police procedural and Spider’s Web was already in my audible library. This fit the bill perfectly. I’d had good luck with Michael Omer before and this continued the trend. It’s the first in a series and I’ll definitely listen to book #2. Detective Mitchell Lonnie is investigating the murder of a good looking woman found in a shallow grave. Before long, there’s another murder of another good looking woman.

And more than that, he realizes each woman was given a “heads up” before they were murdered. It doesn’t take long for there to be even more murdered women. This is a classic serial killer story, but it’s done well. Even after the police learn who the killer is, there is still the mystery of how they will track him down. Mitchell is struggling with his personal life and it impacts his ability to do his job. He’s a realistic detective - driven and headstrong, but still capable of losing his temper. Omer has created a strong group of secondary characters as well. Zoe Bentley, from his other series, makes an appearance as well. I can recommend this to anyone looking for a fast paced mystery. Eric Martin does a good job as the narrator.

    Well written old-school crime suspense. It took me some time to sort out all the characters *lol*, the next book will be easier for me. Victims - young women. Damn, life is unfair! They all lost their lives because of a sick f*ck!

It compares well to other, better known, books of this type. “But death can trickle in during quiet, thoughtful moments. It doesn’t ask for permission, often sneaking into people’s minds before they notice it is there.” We’ve got an intriguing serial killer mystery, a variety of police personnel who are well drawn and feel like real people, excellent writing, well-paced storytelling, and even the occasional bit of humor. ‘”Why are you taking your hat?” “It’s my hat”, Jacob said. He looked offended. “It’s part of my uniform. Do you go down to Traffic without your pants?” “Sometimes,” Mitchell said. “When I want them to take me seriously.”’ If the blurb sounds interesting to you I believe it’s highly likely you’ll enjoy this story. Reader to reader let’s be honest - finding a self-published book that can hold its own with those coming out of the big publishing houses is like finding a gem buried in a mountain of sludge. If you’re a reader who’s taken a gamble on the self-publishing phenomenon you probably know what I’m talking about. And when I do discover a book, like this one, that measures up in professional quality, one where I enjoy the story and the characters, one I can recommend to others with no qualifications or hesitation, my reader heart does a little happy dance. It feels like a reward for being willing to try, taking a chance. A chance that too often ends in disappointment. But not this time. This time I found myself a winner. ”He had seen something that snagged in his brain. It itched in his mind, like a mosquito bite in the subconscious.” I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

    Young, beautiful women are being murdered … none of them in the same way. One is drowned and strangled. Another is run over by a car. But this is a serial killer with a twist … he sends them all a text message showing them a picture of what he’s going to use as a murder weapon. Detective Mitchell Lonnie and his partner, Detective Jacob Cooper have to find the connection between the victims. Were these random attacks? Did the killer know these women personally? How did he meet them? How did he get Young, beautiful women are being murdered … none of them in the same way. One is drowned and strangled. Another is run over by a car. But this is a serial killer with a twist … he sends them all a text message showing them a picture of what he’s going to use as a murder weapon. Detective Mitchell Lonnie and his partner, Detective Jacob Cooper have to find the connection between the victims. Were these random attacks? Did the killer know these women personally? How did he meet them? How did he get close enough to kill them? Lonnie has a girlfriend, who has now decided to leave him. This has him rattled as it is, but when he finds out his younger sister, a brand new street cop, is to be used for bait for the serial killer, he starts to unravel. Throw in a female reporter who will stop at nothing for a story, and there is certainly tragedy ahead.. for all of them. This is a new author to me. I look forward to the next in this series …. DEADLY WEB. The author does a fine job in creating the character of Lonnie. He’s honest, he has empathy for victims and their families, and he’s human. He’s someone you’d invite to your home for coffee and donuts. Cooper is the strong, silent type .. until he doesn’t want to be silent. I love the relationship between the two men. They each have a sense of humor, which comes into play a lot. There are secondary characters who play a minor part, but they are so fascinating, I hope we see them again. The premise is a good one and it’s well written. As a police procedural, it was done quite well. I would not have guessed this was the author’s first novel. Many thanks to the author / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

The victims are being warned of their impending deaths in a creepy way. Are the victims random? Are they connected by something in their lives?

I always enjoy a good police/serial killer series. It can be unsettling reading something you know is probably true in the world somewhere. I see the author has at least two more in this series to soon follow. Looking forward to them. Great ending with a nice set up to make you want to read that next book. Thank you Michael Omer.

    This is one of those books where I gave it a three star review, but I swear I liked it! I just couldn’t give it a higher rating for a couple reasons. The first being that in the book and audio there are not clear markers on the different POV’s. Each paragraph break is kind of a free for all, the POV could really be anyone. With the audiobook, it really became a challenge and I had to listen extra carefully, as there was no clear indicator or long enough audible break between POV changes.

The second, was because I’m an avid mystery/thriller reader. I kept thinking that if I was new to the genre (the morbidity in the book aside), this concept could be a great one to get me hooked into detective based thrillers. But, I’m not, and the ending just didn’t give me the satisfaction I was looking for and honestly, I preferred his newest book A Killer’s Mind a lot more. Seriously, Zoe Bentley is great and I didn’t realize that she is a side character from this series! It was a nice surprise.

    A copy was provided by NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review. A serial killer sends his victims a message before killing them. All to heighen the anticipation of the kill. Mitchell & Jonas are the lead detectives on the case. I connected with various characters and tried to stay a step ahead of the plot. Mike Omer provided a book I would recommend.

    Note to Self: If on KU Read & Listen, try the story but not worth spending money on for audio. This was a mediocre story across the board: predictable plot, cookie cutter characters and tidy ending.

    This was a really good police procedure which showed some sublime detective work from Mitchell Lonnie. Jacob and Mitchell are partners working together.

Then the clock starts ticking. They will have 30 minutes left to live. The storyline was pretty straightforward, with a few red herrings thrown in. When Mitchell is put on a sidetrack, an unexpected ally contacts him, he pairs up and follows his own investigating moves. The mystery is revealed step by step by some great policework, it’s not kept overly simple as I’ve read in a few other police procedures but the right questions are asked and I could keep up and follow right along. Of course it takes right until the end and some real clever thinking to suddenly crack the case and get on the killer’s trail. The suspense builds and it has a really good finish. This was an enjoyable read, a very strong start of this new series and I’m really happy I got the chance to read this one. Recommended for readers who like Casey Hill. I received a free copy of this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I’m always looking for a good book to read. A page-turner. What does that mean? A book that invites you into its make-believe world and smothers you in detail until it feels like you’re living inside it. A book with characters you fall in love with because they talk like real people and act on hidden psychological impulses similar to the ones that motivate us all.

Dreadful twists and a driving pace kept me hooked all the way through to the WTF ending. Highly recommended. I just bought the next one.

    Kendele Byer’s body is found and and Detective Mitchell Lonnie and Detective Jacob Cooper are assigned the case. More deaths of young women lead them and their team to spend many hours investigating these deaths. Are these deaths related and are they looking for a serial killer. What motivates this murderer. This is a great read with many twists and turns. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.

Detective Mitchell Lonnie and Detective Jacob Cooper are called out to the murder of a young drowned women. In trying to identify the body, they begin looking through the missing persons file, and contacting the relatives for descriptions, to see if it’s their loved one that has been found. It hit’s home how devastating it would be as a parent, to receive a call like this. However they identify the victim as Kendall, a young woman with a very sad and abusive background, which she was fleeing from. The killer is definitely delusional, and truly believes in what he is doing is rational, and that his victims would understand in their final moments. Mitch’s sister Tanessa is also a police officer, and she has had a busy night. Firstly coming close to shooting a drunk guy with a gun, and then straight after has to attend a nasty hit and run. For Mitch it’s all coming together, and maybe the deaths are somehow connected. Are they now looking for a serial killer? The stand out for me is the detail the Author has put into the characters. Do yourself a favour and read this book, it really is that good.

    Mediocre. That’s the word that comes to mind when considering this book. Everything was mediocre. The characters were mediocre, one dimensional, and stereotypical. The angst ridden Det. Lonnie. The reporter only interested in milking a story. The evil feds and state police who want to swoop in and take over the case. The politically motivated chief. And on and on. And worst of all is that I never felt anything for any of the characters and had zero sense of forboding or thrills throughout this b Mediocre.

This is not my first Mike Omer's book (read Zoe Bentley series before) and I had hoped the series would be better, considering Zoe Bentley is no longer the lead character. Unfortunately, characterization did not improve and probably even got worse. I would not comment on the plot as that would mean spoiling the fun for readers who like to solve the crimes but I would point out why I hate the characters (spoilers ahead) (view spoiler)[1) Zoe Bentley: I really didn't like her because I think she is arrogant, cold, and a slut. Right, she's a slut in my opinion because she sleeps with any man (including stranger) she comes into proximity. In the book "In the Darkness", she randomly picked up a guy and slept with him knowing a serial killer could be in that community. Worse, she left notes in her room, welcoming any stranger to read! I'm also working in the law enforcement field and there's strict protocol considering what information you can carry out of the department. I'm sure in real life, such protocols apply to officers in the United States as well so I'm just amazed Zoe would invite a stranger into her room (knowing the case files are lying around and not properly locked). Then again, in this book, out of no where, she slept with Mitchell just after the guy broke up with his girl friend. Seriously? While chasing a killer? If that's her way to relaxing herself during a tense investigation, that's scary. 2) Mitchell: I liked him in the beginning of the book but once he broke up with his girlfriend and his sister was attacked, he just went nuts and appeared to be a completely different character. Police officers are humans but they pass through difficult psychological exams before being hired just to avoid them going crazy in front of pressure or when they encountered traumatic changes in their lives. Being dumped is not valid reason for a police officer to go ballistics, so he's a no-no for me. 3) Hannah: She's okay until she leaked info to a reporter. That's actually a serious offence, not checking out another person's identity before talking to the person because info you leaked could cause life and death (and that's kind of true in this story as well). Hannah made a mistake and Mitchell overreacted and threw a fit. Mitchell's definitely wrong to throw a tantrum but that didn't justify Hannah's action. I'm pissed because after that, everyone just kinda blamed Mitchell (whose sister was endangered by Hannah's actions) and no one really blamed Hannah. (hide spoiler)] I might be a bit harsh with my review because I'm in law enforcement (though not a police officer). Still, I think Mr. Omer should improve his characterization because I really liked this plot but poor characterization diminished my enjoyment of the book.

Where a serial killer kills young beautiful girls, it seems like your average story but here’s the twist the killer warned the girls of their deaths minutes before. The author Mike Omner has been a game developer, a CEO of a gaming company and a journalist in the past. His books centralise on the premise of crime, victims of crime, or makers of crimes. Moreover he loves writing mystery books. This particular novel though was made and published on April 29, 2016. There are many viewpoints involved some of the perspective of detectives, friends, family, killer, etc, which adds on to the thrill of the story. However, some may find this troubling to continue on due to the gory details and get muddled up over the formatting and style of writing of the text. The novel brings out a thrill no other novel can give. To go more in depth about what this book is about… A killer stalks and kills women always at random, but he warns them of their painful demise. The suspect list increases day by day, as the victims do. This book is perfect for fans of crime and thriller genres and it is aimed at middle schooler and early high school. I haven’t finished reading the novel yet, but I think it’s easy to say that it is a ⅘ .

I mean, Mitchell screamed and fought against his cop-sister becoming bait for the killer yet when she was hurt by the madman Mitchell blamed himself? Really? How does the author come up with that? Anyway, I doubt I’ll read this author again. One thing I do know is that if I’m going to continue to read these mysteries, 99% written by men, I’m going to have to get used to them not knowing how to use any word other than “said.” According to Goodreads this book has 372 pages and “said” was used 955 times. A little much, to say the least. I will continue to mention this idiotic problem, hoping they will use their thesaurus to find new words for “said.” There was no sex in this book, no nothing really, and the F-bomb was used 25 times. As to the narrator: He had a nice reading voice but that’s all he had going for him. His women’s voices were just OK but he read without emotion of any kind. He neither laughed nor yelled or whispered or anything else the book called for.

Obviously, with this being the Glenmore Park PD, we are introduced to new characters who are interesting and personable. The book is extremely well written and holds you captive right from the start. Mr Omer is very good at creating scary scenarios which make the reader want to continue reading in the anticipation of what may happen next. There is a brilliant mix of humour in amongst the drama and a couple of times I found myself chuckling as I read some of the thoughts and comments made by detective Mitchell Lonnie. I was also pleased to discover that a couple of characters we had already met in the Zoe Bentley novels were called in to assist catch the killer. The story was intense pretty much the whole way through with plenty of twists and a few red herrings to keep us guessing, culminating in a massively gripping ending. Now I’m going to have to buy the next in this series too as I have decided that Mike Omer is one author I can’t get enough of.

    Robuster, This author has a knack for empathy. When describing the victims anguish he has it to a tear jerking , heartbreaking science. It’s the best I have EVER came across. I’ve read tens of thousands of books by thousands of different writers not one can match him in this craftsmanship of the story line. The rest of his writing is average or slightly above. The stories are well crafted , the villain is exceptionally well done. The Protagonist Zoe and the ever changing sidekicks are interesting Robuster, This author has a knack for empathy.

The stories are well crafted , the villain is exceptionally well done. The Protagonist Zoe and the ever changing sidekicks are interesting but they lack the human element that is needed to get them over the top. It keeps his work second tier when it could easily be top tier. I like his protagonist Zoe. I like her up and down personality. I especially like the amount of time spent on the villains of his stories. For me , the hero can only be as good as the villain is despised. They make the story rememberable, in my opinion. Good work. Well crafted , worth the time , effort and money spent on all of his work. Highly recommend if you are into this genre. One other thing . It’s my opinion this author should team with a more detailed writer that has trouble with giving his work the emotional zing it needs to rise up the ranks. Like Lincoln Douglas and Preston Child. If paired with the right partner the work could be something special.

Tanessa Lonnie, Mitchell sister is also on the police force, much to the displeasure of her brother who fears for her safety. Mitchell is efficient on the computer while Cooper is the old style detective. Zoe Bentley, a character from the author’s other series is also a character in this story. A vicious murder is tied to another and both seem to be forewarned. As the clues are sorted out, a race begins to find the killer before there are more victims. While the story line is interesting enough, I found so many characters made following the thread at times difficult. Even more troubling was a prank that was pulled at the height of the investigation. Not only was it obvious but it was totally unrealistic that someone would do such a thing given the very good chance someone might have been shot. I found the public’s reaction to the silly prank equally unreal. The entire episode was not only unnecessary but it detracted from the flow of the story line. Overall, I rate Spider’s Web as a fair read.

    Great read If you want a very realistic view about what makes a person deranged enough to kill this book is it. Seriously, serial killers don't look like monsters, just your person next door. This one was all about antica....pation!! It's scary to think that it started because he asked a girl out and she said no. Also, with the amount of social media platforms, you honestly never know if you're being stalked through them. One of the biggest problems are the fact that, we like our routine in life.

Like walking your dog every day at the same time and the same place. Jovan watched his victims just do their every day. This one makes me want to change up my routine just because it was that type of book. Amazing and gripping novel that I couldn't put down. I absolutely recommend this book to everyone that likes to not be able to sleep and had me watching around every corner!!

It is a thrilling, suspenseful , mystery, police procedural. I literally could not put it down. I love the characters and even though there are several central characters I felt familiar with them all and I found them believable. Except the reporter who tried to redeem herself at the end in a completely unselfish way. Not her style. Anyway, don't miss this great read. Pick it up and see for yourself just how thrilling this thriller is!
