A Frayed Web by Jon Ripslinger 

A Frayed WebBy Jon Ripslinger

Genre: Thriller/Suspense


Walter Bohannon fears love has blinded his mom. After his dad’s death, she reconnected with an old sweetheart, but Adam Kingsley may not be the same person she dated in high school. Even his teenage daughter doesn’t seem to know him very well.

Probing into Kingsley’s background, Walter discovers some disturbing things about his soon-to-be stepdad. Kingsley has secrets, and he might be willing to kill to protect them. Can Walter convince his mother of the danger before it’s too late?


Walter smells something fishy with his mom’s new beau and he is determined to find out exactly what it is. When Adam and his daughter move in with Walter and his mother things heat up quickly, in more ways than one. 

Adam is hiding something.  Walter becomes a junior detective while his mother is completely clueless to Adam’s shortcomings…yes….love is blind!!

I enjoyed many parts of this read. It is very much entertaining.  Walter is a great character and he definitely keeps things interesting.   However, there were places it almost read like a young adult novel. This did not detract from the story, just not what I was expecting. 

I received this novel from the author for a honest review.

  1. Hi Fredreeca,
    Book bloggers are busy people. They have lives to live, and they do more than read books. I think it takes a special person to read a book and then post a review, so I’d like to thank you for reading A Frayed Web and reviewing the book.
