Woods keeps [his characters] moving smartly around the playing board like so many checkers . . . .
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
A taut tale of a very bad woman out to fleece a very good man. . . . Scarcely an excess word gets in the way of the briskly moving plot.
Attorney Ed Eagle thinks he?s safe from his black widow ex-wife, who is now in police custody. But when she escapes, she spins a new web that just might trap him?and everyone he loves.
From the Paperback edition.
