Weave a Murderous Web was a great book to spend the weekend with. I somehow managed to pull a muscle in my leg last Friday and have been spending hours sitting on the couch with my leg propped up to help it heal. I am not one to sit still for long periods of time doing nothing, so I have been using the time to catch up on my reading. Thankfully, I can finally walk almost normally on it again, so I think I’ll be okay for my blog trip this weekend.

Weave a Murderous Web: A Jane Larson Novel
No good deed goes unpunished. When Jane Larson—a hot-shot litigator for a large firm in New York City—helps out a friend, she is sucked into the unfamiliar world of divorce and child support. Jane’s discovery of the deadbeat dad’s hidden assets soon unravels a web of lies, drugs, and murder that keeps getting more dangerous. Soon, Jane is involved in a high-stakes race to recover a missing suitcase of cash and catch the murderer before she becomes the next victim.
Jane is a lawyer with a successful future ahead of her. She has just won a large case for her firm and is allowed to take on a pro bono case for a friend involving divorce and child support. The deadbeat dad in question is stating he is broke and out of work, but his soon to be ex-wife is sure he as money stashed somewhere and she wants her share.
Jane manages to find some of the money he has stashed, but it looks like it may be somehow related to mob dealings. Jane ends up in the hospital after being shot and is more certain than ever that this money has ties to the mob. Now the ex-husband ends up dead, and Jane needs to find out where the rest of the money is before the mob decides that she’s got it.
If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you’ll recognize the name, Jane Larson. She was the lawyer in Praise Her, Praise Diana that I reviewed for you about a year and a half ago. If you remember, I loved the book (read my review if you don’t remember) and, no surprise, I loved Weave a Murderous Web as well! Jane Larson is just one of those women you have to love. She has a little bit of attitude and is just so likeable she could be your best friend. She’s also extremely bright, and I knew she’d figure out the mystery before it was too late. I don’t want to spoil the surprise since I know you’ll want to read it, but the ending surprised me!
