When novels replicate tragedies that can affect the planet today, they drive home the ramification of a disaster-its origins and aftermath-is Spider’s Dance.
An oil rig explosion leads computer security expert Nicholas White into a labyrinth of danger as he uncovers a conspiracy going back to World War II.
Will Graham enthralls readers with a piece of fiction that pulls the what-if factor directly from our nightmares and fears, and turns the most awful expectations into realities.
“In Spider’s Dance,” Computer security and forensics consultant Nicholas White’s reality is the worst environmental disaster of the millennium. This leads him into a labyrinth of subterfuge and danger, a mystery with roots going back to World War Two.
When an oil rig explodes in the Gulf of Mexico, the company Nicholas works for is held responsible for the catastrophe. Assigned to offer technical assistance to rescue/recovery sites along the coastline, Nicholas notices irregularities that start to form a pattern…. and begins to suspect the explosion was not an accident.
With the help of an alluring but skeptical Interpol agent who has her own agenda, Nicholas unravels a web of deceit and death leading back in time to the Holocaust…. and is forced into a final confrontation with an inhuman killer.
“Will Graham has written a remarkably entertaining story, due mainly to the protagonist’s sense of humor. There are laugh-out-loud moments throughout, and these do not take away from the mystery or suspense. Unique characters, an original hero (we don’t get that too often), and an up to the minute topical plot carries SPIDER’S DANCE to the bank.
“-Raymond Benson, author of THE BLACK STILETTO series, six James Bond novels, and the Spike Berrenger ‘Rock ‘n Roll Detective’ series.
Since 2002, William Simon has been the owner and lead investigator for a licensed firm that handles computer forensics and electronic evidence exclusively. This work has led to a few…. interesting experiences.
He has a ridiculously broad-range DVD collection, listens to little else but music from the 1950’s, still reads Leslie Charteris and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and is proud of the fact that he saw both Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin – live and on stage – in Las Vegas, many years ago.
His short story, “Spider’s Tango” is featured in THRILLER 3: LOVE IS MURDER from International Thriller Writers/Mira Books. Earlier works published under the pseudonym ‘Will Graham’ include SPIDER’S DANCE, a full-length novel featuring Nicholas White from ‘Tango’. STREET HEAT and SOMETIMES, THERE REALLY ARE MONSTERS UNDER THE BED, are also available in eBook editions.
