Joseph Baneth Allen from Jacksonville, FL United States
In this outing of The Spider , Richard Wentworth is offered a rather tempting bargain by an arch-criminal who wants to bring the United States to its knees by unleashing a deadly horde of spiders, snakes, and other deadly insects and plagues. If The Spider agrees not to pursue him, then the Emperor of Vermin will leave the United States crime free after a five year reign. As a gesture of his good will, the Dragon Lord has Nita released after she had been captured by one of his men and has that man tortured to death in earshot of The Spider. Though strongly tempted, Wentworth refuses the Dragon Lord's offer and a deadly match of wits begins - resulting in - SPOILER ALERT - the rather violent death of Professor Brownlee by minions of the Dragon Lord. Nita is also badly tortured by a mobster's girlfriend seeking vengeance for her lover's death. Not for the faint of heart. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! FIVE STARS!
