A holiday turns murderous… The Web is a dangerous trip into the unknown for psychologist Alex Delaware in this compulsive thriller from international bestseller Jonathan Kellerman. Perfect for all those who are fans of Michael Connelly and Lee Child. ‘Loyal familiars and Kellerman newcomers alike will turn these pages compulsively’ – Publishers Weekly Dr William Moreland has spent much of his life attending to the physical and mental health of the inhabitants of Knife Island, a tiny Micronesian community. Feeling that his records should be analysed to ensure that the wealth of information contained within them should not be lost, he asks Alex Delaware for assistance.
The timing is perfect for Alex and his partner Robin. Desperate to escape the violence of Los Angeles and recuperate from a terrible ordeal, they seize the opportunity for a sabbatical.
But Knife Island is not the tropical paradise it first appears. The murder of a young woman has created an atmosphere of fear and division and Moreland himself is not quite what he seems.
Surrounded by tarantulas and giant hissing cockroaches, Alex and Robin find themselves drawn into a grotesque web of intrigue that even Alex, with his deep knowledge of the human psyche, finds it hard to unravel.
