The Iron Spiders


A bizarre death on an isolated Florida island requires a unique detective in this Golden Age mystery by the author of the Duncan Maclain series.

Young electrical engineer Donald Buchanan is excited to be working again—and to spend his winter in Florida instead of New York. Instead of waiting tables, he’ll be running a small power plant on Broken Heart Key, a private island owned by eccentric billionaire Aaron Tuckerton. Never mind his boss’s strange warning about people wanting him dead …

But trouble quickly follows Don to paradise when a servant mysteriously jumps to her death in what she should’ve known were barracuda-infested waters. Then a mysterious necklace known as “the Iron Spider” is discovered in her room. Don believes there needs to be an inquest, but Aaron phones for a special investigator instead.

The next morning, Don is greeted by Miles Standish Rice. With his schoolboy attitude and voracious appetite, “Stan” may not seem like the type to bring a killer to justice. But as things take a turn for the deadlier on Broken Heart Key, it becomes clear to Don the PI is his only chance of getting off the island alive …

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
