Can't believe that this book is Schaab's first novel--it's an exciting and well-researched suspense story which details how identity theft can occur in seemingly innocuous ways. She points the way to future red flags in a world increasingly run by computers. Enjoyed reading about some familiar spots in Manhattan.

In her legal thriller, 'Wearing the Spider', Susan Schaab has created a story that is fast-paced, intriguing and extremely well-written with believable character development. The book's beautiful cover art draws you into a tale involving identity theft, sexual harassment and murder. Evie Sullivan, a young attorney on track for partnership in her law firm, suddenly finds herself drawn into a conspiracy which could not only rob her of her career as a lawyer but threaten her life as well. As you follow her struggles to uncover the sinister plot against her, you will find this book very difficult to put down. Looking forward to future novels by this talented writer.

Evie Sullivan is a senior lawyer in the law firm of Howard, Rolland and Stewart and is on the fast track to make partner. She devotes most of the hours in the day to her clients, which leaves little time for a social life. Before her world starts to fall apart, she meets lawyer Joe Baton on a plane ad the two instantly click. --- When she returns to her office she is informed her name is on a file but Evie never had dealings with the case or the client. She also finds that on a trip to Chicago she was billed for a hotel room she never stayed at and though it lists her as making calls to Brazil she knows nobody there. She discovers that she is an attorney of record for a client that she knows nothing about and there is something in the wording of the file that seems to be illegal. An attempt is made on Evie¿s life and she begins to believe one of the partners Alan is stalking her because she once violently rejected his advances. With the help of Joe, she tries to find a way to restore her good name. --- The romance between Joe and Evie is quick but believable as he becomes an intricate part of the plot as he works double time to extract Evie from Alan¿s machinations. Alan is the best kind of villain, one readers love to hate. There are a lot of action scenes in this fast paced thriller but it is the heroine who makes WEARING THE SPIDER special. She refuses to succumb even when it looks like all things Alan did to destroy her will ruin her. --- Harriet Klausner
