Staff Picks - Charley's Web

Charley's Web, by Joy Fielding

Charley Web, a charming, but not always entirely likable journalist, makes her living stirring up controversy with her articles on Brazilian waxes, her lesbian mother and the high cost of designer handbags ($75 000 by the way). While dealing with her own dysfunctional, and sometimes estranged family, she is drawn into the world of Jill Rohmer and her positively deranged family. Rohmer is on death row for the torture and murder of three small children. Rohmer asks Webb to write her biography and tell her side of the story to the world.

I don't want to overuse a cliche, but a definite page turner which I had difficulty putting down.

Fans of Mary Higgins Clark, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and Iris Johansen should definitely consider trying books by Joy Fielding.
