Spyder Web by Tom Grace.

This book is a spy story about a computer chip that has embedded coding which can spy on the host computer. Enter our hero ex-Navy SEAL Nolan Kilkenny to save America from these international thieves and spies.

Spyder Web has 454 pages and was written in 1998 although the paperback edition was not published until 2009. The plot sadly is like a made-for-TV movie. There are no twists in the plot, it simply plods along. This novel gives the reader nothing to think about, it has no message and you take nothing away. All the characters are glamourous, rich, powerful, successful people living flash lives. It is all too cosy with all these top elite people doing really well. There is not one likeable character in this novel. It belongs to a fantasy world where characters just get on the phone and speak straight to the guy at the top. This is an unreal story and it did not entertain me. I did not like Spyder Web and I found it quite a bore. There is no realism here, just people being brash. The ending is bad and is more like a child's comic.

Spyder Web was a big disappointment, I suggest bloggers AVOID this book and so I awarded it the minimum of 1 star on Book Army . I will not be buying another of Tom's books.
