By a Spider's Thread (Tess Monaghan, #8)By a Spider’s Thread by Laura Lippman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wouldn’t call this hair-raising or a cliff-hanger, but it is a darn good read. It’s interesting how Lippman focuses on different regular characters in each book. In this one, she gets rid of Crow in a convenient way, and Kitty plays a bigger role than in previous books…although none of the regulars show up much in this book. By varying how much the regulars show up and which ones, Lippman makes each book in the series slightly different in tone and action, for each character puts their own stamp on how the action goes and how Tess will react to events.
