Spiders and Flies (Paperback)
Out of Stock; Usually Arrives in 2-5 Days
An American fugitive in Martinique recovering from a six hour marriage. A young woman who has a cat for a best friend. A wealthy couple who bicker so much they make solitary life seem irresistible and a yoga-practicing midget with lethal karate skills These are a few of the players at the heart of Spiders and Flies, the story of an abduction gone wrong. Set in the lush sun-drenched tropics, the novel captures the deepest fears and desires of the people drawn into the kidnapper's web. A drama that unfolds with twisty suspense and dark humor, it sheds a skewed light on the notions of family ties, loyalty, deceit, and friendship. "Scott Adlerberg is a terrific storyteller and Spiders and Flies belongs on your bookshelf." -Jason Starr, Anthony Award-winning author of The Craving "Adlerberg's Paul Raven is that rare kind of character - a predatory schemer we nonetheless can't help but identify with through the many twists and turns this story takes him on. The Martinique setting provides a palpable, sensuous, and vivid atmosphere, making it almost a character itself. I was totally immersed from start to finish." -Larry Dark, Director of The Story Prize.
