After Sarah had conquered her childhood arachnophobia, her fear turned into fascination and spiders became the focus of her studies. Captivated by their ritual of mating and death, she watches as they stalk their prey with chilling precision. Slowly, she comes to discover the spider within her.

On the giant nylon web built for her in the studio, she begins to feel strangely exhilarated, thrillingly powerful. Sarah Jordan is a woman gripped by a strange and terrible metamorphosis.
Love and fear, courage and perversity, violence and neurosis are spun together to create a sinister spider's web. Thread by thread, this realistic and compelling novel builds to a bizarre and horrifying conclusion.
