Review: The Spider and the Fly by Claudia Rowe - Criminal ElementThis is the age old story of the Spider and the Fly per the poem by Mary Howitt. The book teaches the young reader not to be so gullible and to trust one's instincts. What I love about this book is that it is beautifully illustrated. This is a great book to read to the young kids and do a show and tell. This should be in every parent's collection to read to their children. This is a modern fantasy book about a spider and a fly.

Book Review: The Spider and the Fly.
Writers are drawn to a crime scene like flies to rotting flesh, and so when a serial killer was caught in her town of Poughkeepsie, N. Kendall Francois was a notorious local john repeatedly reported for abusing women throughout the late '90s. But it wasn't until police took out a warrant to raid his family's home that they found a hoarder's den filled with garbage, rotting food, mold and human bodies. Maggots fell from the attic where Francois had stashed his victims in plastic bags and a kiddie pool. A Seattle Times reporter and Pulitzer Prize nominee, Rowe ravenously hunts down vignettes of derangement and despair. Francois is described as a "hoarder of dead bodies and old candy wrappers.

a tale for the time being book
When buying a book, I tend to all but ignore the little grabs of quotes from admirers and reviewers plastered all over the cover the irony of this does not escape me. From people I know and whose opinions I trust. Writers I like. From Anna, the keeper of my local bookstore. But the thing about The Spider and the Fly is that all of the quotes and grabs on the cover are, pardon the pun, dead right. This book is not a slow burn.
