I’ve been a fan of Joy Fielding’s writing for about 15 years. When I saw all she had a new book out, Charley’s Web, I did not even bother to look inside the flap to see what it was about I just took it.
In Fielding’s latest book, Charley’s Web, she tells the story of a woman, Charley Webb, who is a controversial columnist for a Florida newspaper. Charley is no stranger to angry readers. They either love her columns or they hate her columns and her. However, when she starts getting emails from a very angry reader who is threatening her children she begins to worry. Meanwhile, a woman on death row contacts Charley about writing a book about the woman’s life and how she came to be on death row. With all this going on she has to deal with her dysfunctional family including a troubled brother, a distant father and two sisters who resent her.
Joy Fielding has written about 17 mysteries including Puppet, Mad River Road and Whispers and Lies. Her books always keep me interested from start to finish. If you like a good mystery I recommend Joy Fielding.
