Charley's Web (4/5)


Charley's Web (4/5)
Charley Webb is a newspaper columnist. She is named Charlotte after Charlotte Bronte. Her siblings are also named for Brontes: Emily, Anne and Bram. They had a dysfunctional childhood as their mom left them when they were very young and their father emotionally closed himself off. Charley is contacted by a convicted child murderer on Death Row to write her real story. Charley is hesitant at first to do but agrees. She begins to visit Jill at the prison and hears disturbing tales of a murderer's childhood. On top of this, Charley's columns seem to have upset a reader and he/she is sending threatening emails, saying that soon Charley's children will be hurt.
This book has good suspense and will keep readers guessing to the very end. Readers will be hooked into this book. I think this is my favorite book by Fielding to date.
