He put his notes down, switched off his bedside light and relaxed back into his two feather pillows. He was just drifting off to sleep when something touched his cheek that caused him to jump. He was immediately awake and on the alert. As he sat upright something touched his face again and in the semi-darkness he could make out the shape of a giant spider hanging from the ceiling by a single thread. He leapt out of bed, avoiding the spider, and ran to the side of the room. He needed something with which to kill the arachnid that was now staring at him with blood red eyes.

The Dark Web is finally out. The sequel to The Warped Web by the sensational Vivian Head is now available on Amazon. It will soon be available in other retailers and on ebook.

As a publisher when looking to take on titles by others, I first look at the linguistics of the work itself before the overall storyline. This is to determine whether the writing is at a ‘readable’ state and if I would be drawn to the words. I want to ‘know’ the original work. After a story is edited, I would still like to see most of the original style of the writer in the story rather than a whole different, edited one. With over forty years of experience in the publishing industry, it was no surprise that Vivian’s writing immediately grasped my attention, and it took me just less than a day to finish reading the first book The Warped Web with many written pages of my own detailed notes to go along with it. Vivian had created such an atmospheric setting at the beginning of the story with her style of writing that I was already drawn to what was happening and wanted to know what would happen next. After finishing the story, I knew that Vivian had to come up with a sequel, which she did with The Dark Web. I am currently on the verge of pursuing Vivian to write a third instalment…or more. On top of it all, the character Rex Saloman already has a place in my heart. For me, The Warped Web is more thrilling and heart-throbbing, whereas The Dark Web is darker and spine-chilling.

Following the success of his first case as a private detective, Rex Saloman embraced his next case aware that it was not as simple as it would first appear. Approached by a concerned father, Rex was asked to look into the background of his daughter’s new boyfriend. As suspected, there was a dark side to the young man’s nature and a connection to the Black Widow Temple which Rex had believed was over following the arrest of Lucifer’s servants. But the devil knows no barriers and his work spread beyond the bars of a prison cell threatening the lives of Rex and his associates. Rex calls once again on his ex-partner, Peter, for help and together they follow their target to Mongolia, where their lives become entangledwith the Dark Web.
