The Evening Spider
Arsenault’s new novel (after What Strange Creatures, 2014) is a gripping blend of psychological suspense and historical true crime linking two women from two different centuries. In 1878, new mother Frances Barnett becomes increasingly obsessed by the murder of New Englander Mary Stannard, only to admit to her brother from a lunatic hospital that her fascination with the case was not entirely innocent. 125 years later, new mother Abby Bernacki, who is living in the Barnetts' old house in Haverton, CT, tries to connect the missing pieces found in Frances’ diary while having odd dreams and hearing hushing sounds in the nursery.
NYC District Attorney Olivia Randall receives a phone call from the daughter of her ex-fiancé, Jack Harris, whose late wife, Molly, was killed by a teenager in a mass shooting at Penn Station three years ago. Jack has just been implicated in a triple murder, and one of the victims was the father of the Penn Station shooter. Jack’s flimsy alibi is his claim that he was picnicking with a mysterious woman he recently met at the park. As Olivia sets out to clear his name, she begins to wonder whether Jack really is the devoted and decent man she remembers. A riveting standalone by the author of All Dressed in White (with Mary Higgins Clark, 2015).
