Spider 080Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham-Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for their bored diplomatic circle. When a murder takes place in her drawing room, she finds live drama much harder with which to cope, especially as she suspects the murderer might be her young stepdaughter, Pippa. Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry’s first marriage. Clarissa’s fast talking places her in some hair-raising experiences as she comes to learn that facts are more terrifying than fiction. “Spider’s Web” is brilliantly woven with thrills and comedy bursting from every dark corner!
