Sex, money, and terrorism: What do the violent takeover of Fez brothels and a new stream of terrorist funding have to do with the disappearance of Alicia Harmon from the Fez office of Femme Aid Maroc? When CIA analyst Lee Carruthers tries to find out, she is swept into a tangled web of dirty money and human trafficking, and people will kill to find out what Alicia knew. If only Lee knew. She’s working blind, and in this case, ignorance is death. Her search takes her through the slums of the medina to the high-rises of the new city and finally to a terrorist camp in the Algerian desert.
‘The Spider Catchers’ is a good mystery/thriller novel. I don’t usually like stories surrendered by terrorists, but this book was doing a pretty good job at keeping me hooked. The main character, Lee, is a strong badass woman and I enjoyed getting to know her. I’ll be looking forward to the sequel!
