My new book is here — The Spider Thief, Part 1: Stolen Memory — and it releases today exclusively on Amazon.com.
The Spider Thief is a series of four interlinked novellas, and you can read them alone or all in a row. Every week, a new installment releases on Amazon.
Here’s the lowdown from my world-class literary agent, Kristin Nelson:
The Spider Thief, Part 1: Stolen Memory
by Laurence MacNaughton
All of his life, Ash has been haunted by the ancient curse that killed his parents.
From the cobweb-choked ruins of a lost city in the Amazon emerges a gold spider statue with flashing emerald eyes. If the legends are true, the gold spider has the power to erase the past… change the future… perhaps even grant eternal life. But touching the spider will steal your memories–and then your life.
For centuries, men have killed to possess the gold spider. Like the man who murdered Ash’s parents. Now, the killer has returned, and Ash is trapped in the grip of the spider’s curse.
His only hope is Cleo, his embittered high-school sweetheart, now a highly-trained agent obsessed with tracking down the spider. But Cleo knows something she’s not telling Ash–about a million dollars in dirty cash, and the terrifying secret his parents died to keep.
