Overview

The new Bishop Files novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The First Prophet and the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novels.

John Brodie is a Guardian, a member of a secretive network devoted to winning a war very few even know exists: protecting the vulnerable psychics in his charge from a deadly, ruthless — and virtually invisible enemy.
Tasha Solomon is a gifted psychic whose abilities have saved her more than once from situations as dangerous as they are baffling. She doesn’t believe she needs help, and she doesn’t even know that Guardians exist — until Brodie saves her life.
 Unaccustomed to depending on anyone for anything, Tasha now finds herself embroiled in deadly game where the ultimate goal is a fate far worse than any nightmare. The only person she can trust is Brodie to guide her through a maze of danger and deception, lies and treachery, friends and enemies, until they reach safe harbor.
 If they reach safe harbor.

A Deadly Web 3.3 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 29 reviews.

I too was extremely disappointed in the second of The Bishop Files series - "A Deadly Web". It seemed incomplete and really boring. Normally I can't stop reading Ms. Hooper's books, but this one I really couldn't care less about finishing.

I have read all of kay hooper's books and had waited with anticipation for this one, so I was very disappointed when this one had so little plot and so many unexplained characters. It could have been told in two or three paragraphs. I kept expecting a plot to develop but it just ends, nothing has happened but the introduction of characters to no end. The book is only about 199 pages and yet it was so boring it took me three days to read it because I just kept loosing interest, I usually can't put her books down and read all the way through. All in all this one was a waste of time, I just hope the next one has the plot that explains this book!

I was anticipating the release of this book because the previous in this series were so good. There isn't much of a plot except for letting us know some background. I guess I was expecting some action, a story to intrigue me and make me want more.

I have read all Ms. Hoopers books but was disappointed with this one. Especially waiting 4 additional months for it to come out. Very disappointed it had only199 pages! This stoey seems unfinished.

After waiting for what it seemed a very long time. Only 199 pages and wham its over. Now we have to wait for the next one? Too many unanswered questions and plots that never came to fruition. I expected better from this author. Wish i could get my money back!

I really love this series. This time psychics are being abducted but what is going on with them? Bishop,of course,is involved,along with his,colorful cast of characters. These stories are appropriatly dark but so intriguing. Welcome yourself to the world of empaths,telepaths and all paths lead to Bishop and his talented F.B.I. group

I have read all of Kay Hooper's books and was so excited to read the newest addition. What a let down. The book is 199 pages with the beginning of an interesting plot that goes no where. The book ends prematurely leaving the reader wondering what the heck happened. The author was late releasing this book and it is obvious she rushed to finish it. I feel like I deserve my money back. Kay Hooper, what happened?

I should star by saying I have really enjoyed all of the stories in the Biship books. But I have to admit I am diappointed in this one. The story seemed to lacking when compared with the other books in the series. I would have loved to learn more about Tasha, Brodie, and other events happening in the book.

While I liked what I read, it seemed incomplete. Like Kay Hooper just got tired of writing and stopped the book. I missed the connection between Brodie and Tasha. We're told its there but never really shown it. There was no spark between them. I wish Ms. Hooper would have provided that spark and shown more of a connection between the two. This book just lacked her usual writing skill. I finished the book hungry for the details that were left out. This had to be the first book of hers that I was dissatisfied with. I eagerly anticipate each and every book but now I have to wonder what went wrong and will it continue. Here's hoping the next book has her providing not only the connection between the pair but also more character development. In other words this book seemed like an unfinished work which was given to an agent to entice a publisher but was never finished. Please don't disappoint me next time.

I usually live these books and anything with Bishop in it is immediately on my list but this is such a disappointment. Too many long winded dialogues, too many cliffhangers, too little development. Not kay hooper's best

Skip this book, you won't be missing anything. No action, rushed,incomplete, and a lot to be desired for this story. Unless this is a part one of two book, the author forgot to go back and fill in details of her events and info she wanted to get across to her readers. Was there a point in the child? We could have ommited that with no consequence. Main characters coulda been just a conversation between his wife about his side projects. So disappointed and unsatisfied with this book. Oh, and when is Quinn from another series going to be picked back up??

I feel like half of the story is missing. What ever happened here? What about the little girl with the cat? How did that happen? I don't remember that from the first of this series? Totally confused with the way this ended. What and who took care of Tasha and Brodie? Is Murphy bad or good? Yikes.

I have been an avid reader of every bishop novel that has come out and have always been a huge fan but the last few books have been a pretty big dissapointment. The plots lack substance and the new characters being introduced are vague at best. I really hope she turns this around because as of right now I may not consider purchasing anymore books if they continue in this fashion.

A Deadly Web is the second book in Kay Hooper's spin-off series, The Bishop Files. Readers who love the Bishop Special Crimes Unit books will find this one a spooky thriller with plenty of paranormal elements. Before readers got so caught up in vampires and werewolves, the paranormal characters were psychics and ghosts. Hooper has the market cornered on the psychic angle with this series. A great addition that will continue on the story threads of the first book in the series, The First Prophet. Kay Hooper must be psychic, she some how knew that readers would love this type of series. I have been a fan of Hooper for a long time, but I have really enjoyed her Bishop Special Crimes books and I was excited about this spin-off series. Hooper just seems to know what to write that will make the hair on the back of the readers neck stand up. She is a creepy writer and I love that. Her thrillers are what I might call spine tingling. They give me the heebie geebies... LOL! And that makes for a fantastic read. In the second book in this series, readers learn more about the disappearances that have been taking place in the psychic community. Tasha is a powerful psychic and now the target of some pretty menacing foes. The danger feels so real in Hooper's books that readers will want to keep the heroine safe. Tasha doesn't know that a secret society exists to protect the psychics and John Brody is one of them. He is a Guardian, charged with Tasha's protection. I loved the whole idea of the disappearances and how Hooper used it to create this eerie thriller. I will have to say that I felt like this one rambled a bit. There was a whole lot of things being said and not as much action as I would have liked or that I expected. Hooper's books are usually jam packed with action and suspense, but I didn't get that same feeling of urgency with this one. I wanted things to be settled and figured out , but it didn't seem like it had to be this second or else. I like that edge of your seat, nail biting kind of thriller and this one wasn't quite up to the challenge. Bottom Line: This is another very good book from a trusted writer in the romantic suspense genre. The paranormal elements are old school and satisfying. Sometimes I get tired of the same old vampire stories. A well written and thought out story about a psychic, hit the spot for me, but the action was on the down low in this one. I wanted more snap, more zing, but I know that Hooper is one of the best at that sort of thing and I'm sure the next book will prove it.
