The Spider Thief started out as just one novella, but I was so intrigued by the characters and the premise that I realized there was a much bigger and more exciting story I wanted to tell.
Each episode has a different story arc. One takes place in the Rocky Mountains, another one explores a creepy abandoned factory, there’s one in a ghost town, and so on. But they all have the same ongoing characters, and each one builds on what came before to create a bigger story that reveals darker secrets and deeper mysteries as you go.
I like to warn people that each episode ends with a cliffhanger. So chances are, if you read the first episode — which you can get free on my website, LaurenceMacNaughton.com — you’re going to want to read the rest.
The double murder of a young man and woman, with a message in blood at both scenes reawakens the memory of an identical case fifteen years earlier.
Detective Superintendent Eddie Kilminster, a junior detective in the earlier case, now leads the present investigation. He enlists the help of Sean Moses, an ex colleague from the first case, and now an investigative profiler operating outside of the force. Eddie and Sean find themselves on a journey and a race against time before the killer strikes again. Will Eddie’s mind be opened to the forces of nature that lie beneath the killings, and will Sean discover a new path in his life before events push him beyond the edge of his sanity?

The idea to write had been kicking around for a few years. I read a detective mystery by a very successful author and although I liked the story, it was one that I felt I could have written myself. It got me thinking as to what interests me and the nucleus of my own story started.
