The bodies of high school and middle school kids are found dead from an overdose of heroin and fentanyl. The drug trade along the I-94 and I-43 corridors and the Milwaukee Metro area is controlled by MS-13, a violent gang originating from El Salvador. Ricardo Fuentes is sent from Chicago to Waukesha to find out who is cutting in on their business, shut it down and teach them a lesson. But he has an ulterior motive: find and kill a fifteen-year-old boy, George Tokay, who had killed his cousin the previous summer.
Detectives Jamie Graff, Pat O’Connor and Paul Eiselmann race to find the source of the drugs, shut down the ring, and find Fuentes before he kills anyone else, especially George or members of his family. The three detectives come to realize that the ring has its roots in a high school among the students and staff.
Review Caught in a web by Fany Van Hemelen:
Caught in a web is a fast-paced and riveting story!
I was happy to meet again George Tokay and the other characters from the previous book. Joseph Lewis is an author who has the talent to create well-written crime stories and he isn’t afraid to choose difficult and hard themes to spin his tale around.
To be honest, I have to tell you this is a book with violence, drugs and cruel stuff in it. But all this is necessary, because the story is set in a terrific war. Drug wars are ugly and even in real truth kids are victims by drugs. Of course besides the horrifying action scenes this book is more than that.
Caught in a Web is again about a special police team and a lovely family. It’s a story about revenge, friendship and even love. If you adore a good plot and exciting scenes with daring themes and some spiritual thoughts then you will love this crime book!
Joseph Lewis has written five books: Caught in a Web; Taking Lives; Stolen Lives; Shattered Lives, and Splintered Lives. His sixth, Spiral into Darkness, debuts January 17, 2019 from Black Rose Writing. Lewis has been in education for 42 years and counting as a teacher, coach, counselor and administrator. He is currently a high school principal and resides in Virginia with his wife, Kim, along with his daughters, Hannah and Emily. His son, Wil, is deceased.
Lewis uses his psychology and counseling background to craft his characters which helps to bring them to life. His books are topical and fresh and appeal to anyone who enjoys crime thriller fiction with grit and realism and a touch of young adult thrown in.
