Spider's Cage sees the return of Martin Windrow, the detective first introduced to readers in The Damned Don't Die ("a super thriller" --Los Angeles Times). When Jodie O'Ryan, the country singer he adores, disappears after the death of her grandfather, a millionaire oil man, Windrow sets off on their trail. Strangers and storytellers cross his path: friendly tarantulas, a Verlaine-reading prostitute, an androgynous bodyguard, a pimp-entrepreneur-singer, a Salvadorean revolutionary, a car salesman hooked on tranquilizers, a cop who treats the common cold with cocaine cut with amphetamines . Windrow travels from surprise to nightmare, and from body to body, up until the dark-as-night finale.
