The New York Times and internationally bestselling author is at her heart-skipping best with her latest mesmerizing triumph . . . Charley’s Web.
Charley Web is a beautiful single mother who writes a successful and controversial column for the Palm Beach Post. She’s spent years building an emotional wall against scathing critics, snooty neighbors and her disapproving family. But when she receives a letter from Jill Rohmer, a young woman serving time on death row for the murders of three small children, her wall slowly begins to crumble. Jill wants Charley to write her biography so that she can share the many hidden truths about the case that failed to surface during her trial — including the existence of a mysterious man she calls Jack, who may just be the actual killer. Seeing this as an opportunity to gain journalistic credibility, Charley begins her journey into the mind of this deeply troubled woman.
But when a series of anonymous letters, threatening to harm her son and daughter, land in Charley’s in-box, she knows her assignment has gone way too far. As Charley races against time to save her family, she begins to understand the value of her seemingly intrusive neighbors, friends and relatives. As she discovers, this network of flawed but loving people might just be her only hope of getting out alive.
Jill Rohmer, a convicted child killer with a borderline personality disorder, lures Charlotte "Charley" Webb, a popular columnist for the Palm Beach Post and single mom, into a web of danger and deceit in this spine-tingler from bestseller Fielding (Heartstopper). When Jill invites Charley to collaborate on the "true story" of what really happened to the three children she was convicted of murdering, Charley at first thinks it sounds like a great idea. Her sister Anne is, after all, a bestselling romance author, so why couldn't Charley have a nonfiction bestseller? Charley meets with Jill's attractive lawyer, Alex Prescott, who secures a book contract. After committing to the project, Charley begins dating Alex. Then Charley learns Jill had an accomplice, someone on the loose whom Jill calls "Jack." Fielding pulls out all the stops as the identity of the ruthless murderer becomes obvious, and Charley must race against time to catch the horrible Jack and save his next target her son.
