Afraid of spiders...? You should be. Creepy crawlies take on a whole new meaning for the working girls of Sandy Springs, Atlanta, when a client comes to the red light district looking for something different. He wants girls to let his pet spiders walk all over them. Seems like a simple, if strange, request - but not all the girls come back. When FBI field officer Kimberly Quincy gets called out to talk to one of the girls, she's already got enough on her mind. What was a routine evidence-tagging session at the scene of a cargo plane crash has gone horribly wrong. Just when they'd recovered all the crew bodies, they get an unwelcome surprise...an extra body caught in a tree. Without a head. When Kimberly finally gets home to think it all through, and climbs into bed next to her husband Mac, a phone call shatters the peace and proves that the nightmare is only just beginning. On the other end of the line, a muffled cry and the sound of metal on flesh...

Kimbery Quincy is an FBI Special Agent. She's the daughter of a renowned, albeit retired, FBI Special Agent. And her husband, Mac, is a Special Agent with the GBI--Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Kimbery is five months pregnant and trying to figure out how she and Mac are going to continue to work the long, hard hours they already work while layering in the long, hard hours of caring for a baby.
And now she's been brought into one of the more bizarre cases of her career: an apparent serial killer (apparent, because while there are over 10 girls missing, no missing persons reports have been filed and no bodies have turned up) with a spider fixation is preying on prostitutes. Come into my parlor indeed.
The twisted fetishistic serial killer with an unspeakable past has become somewhat of a cliche in the last decade or so, but somehow it always satisfies. Lisa Gardner has developed her chops over the course of her 10 novels, and really knows how to milk the cliche for all it's worth, and that's saying something. She also knows how to pile on the suspense.
Will Kimberly find the serial killer? Will she find the bodies? Will Mac support her in her quest, even as she puts their baby at risk? Will we learn who is narrating the italicized interludes? All these questions are answered, and all ends tied up in a most satisfying manner.
Recommended. Say Goodbye is quick, it's scary, and it gets the job done.

If you're afraid of spiders, this may not be the book for you. Kimberly is back and even though she's five months pregnant, that doesn't slow her down - much to her husbands dismay. This time she gets caught up in the case of some missing (and presumed dead) hookers. Unfortunately the FBI, GBI and local police don't think there is a case, but Kimberly and local GBI agent Sal are determined to prove there is. Along with tryng to track down this sadistic killer, Kimberly has to deal with the issue of actually having to "slow down" now that she's a mother. This is probably Ms. Gardner's most sadistic killer, one of her most graphic to date - but it's also one of her best. It's one twisted, suspensful, spellspinding books I've read in a long time.
