The Night Spider
John Lutz is fascinated by the nighttime dangers that await women alone. In THE NIGHT SPIDER, he improvises a new variation on this theme with a thriller about a serial killer who preys upon women living in high-rises. With few visible means of entry, the mysterious stalker kills women while they sleep in their beds behind securely locked doors. Like his namesake, he leaves his victims wrapped in their bed sheets and stabbed repeatedly, having them slowly bleed to death with their mouths frozen in a silent scream. The few clues left on the scene point to a wall-crawling, glass-cutting predator who easily eludes the best minds on the police force. Now a determined detective must stop him–before time runs out for his next victim.
"Like Eric Clapton reinventing a familiar blues tune, Lutz, an award-winning master craftsman, takes a tired thriller formula and gives it fresh sizzle." (Booklist)
John Lutz's work includes political suspense, private-eye novels, urban suspense, humor, occult, crime caper, police procedural, espionage, historical, futuristic, amateur detective—virtually every mystery subgenre. He is the author of more than 45 novels and 250 short stories and articles. His novels and short fiction have been translated into virtually every language and adapted for almost every medium.
