3.5 Stars from me
I loved the setting for Spider Hunting, it follows young lawyer Asia Blythe who unknowingly gets dragged into some questionable cases.
At first it seems as though not everything is entirely squeakyclean and above board but before too long it becomes clear to Asia that she is up to her neck in seriously dangerous business.
At the same time, she is offered the chance of becoming an equity partner in the law firm – this is a once in a lifetime opportunity but at what cost?
Her partner Sam is a bit of an unsung hero in this book for me, he’s definitely a guy you’d want in your corner!
This book offers a fascination glimpse into the glamorous and dangerous world of the high stakes law firms. Lots of drama and moments of definite peril made it hard to put down.
Blurb: Spider Hunting. It’s never what it seems.
A murder of a high-profile law partner on a Manhattan street should have made the front page of the news. And yet it didn’t. Drew Bradley’s murder was treated as just another senseless crime and relegated to page four of the evening edition. But what if the press had been privy to the fact that the murder was actually an assassination?
As the partners at Lannister and Stewart scramble to fill the vacuum left by Drew Bradley’s sudden death, Asia Blythe, a rising star in the firm is offered his coveted position. But this golden opportunity that brings with it power, prestige, and unlimited financial rewards demands adherence to a code. A code of allegiance to the firm with no exceptions. Catapulted into the world of genetically modified designer babies and state-sponsored espionage, is Asia prepared to deal with the intrigues of a world that will threaten her life and shatter her illusions?
