Weave a Murderous Web by Kenneth Hicks and Anne Rothman-Hicks

Review by MK French

Jane Larson is a lawyer that devotes hours of her life to her job, to the point that it barely hurt when her ex-boyfriend called off their relationship. She does help out a friend to serve as the lawyer for a mother trying to get child support from her husband. The case turns out to be much bigger than originally thought, as the deadbeat dad is a lawyer who had also dealt drugs and is soon found murdered. Jane herself is a target, and she has to find out who is involved.

The beginning of the book really sets up Jane as the hotshot NYC lawyer for Adams and Ridge. I loved the touches about the city, though I had to admit my back got up a bit when Queens was disparaged. (I will always be a Queens girl, you can't disrespect my borough!)

Jane was great as a main character. While she could be obnoxious at times, it was in a realistic way and tempered by the care she truly has for her friends and the dogged determination she had to do the right thing. I know I wouldn't have continued investigating things on my own the way she did in the book, but her bad decisions were relatable, too.

All of the characters felt real, even the annoying ones, and I was left guessing right until the very end who the murderer was. The mystery was well crafted, and I liked the twists and turns the plot took. I haven't read any Jane Larson novels before, but I look forward to finding more books with her in them.

  1. I really enjoyed this book as well! Feel free to pop over and check out my review if you'd like. I totally hear ya when you say the MC was a bit obnoxious! I got really annoyed with her persona a few times, but man, the authors really created a realistic snobby lawyer! :)
