James Bond has nothing on America's Faydra Green. Navy SEALs with the help of a former president's daughter hijack the Russian Guided Missile Cruiser Moskva to stop a North Korean missile crisis. And this is just the beginning!

Navy JAG lawyer Faydra 'Spider' Green is the daughter of former President William Green. His power and influence plagues her every move and she contemplate if her achievements are from her own merits or his. Faydra is both nervous and eager as she undertakes her first homicide investigation —the brutal murder of a Navy SEAL. Faydra discovers the accused man, a Special Ops Marine war hero, may be innocent thanks to her astonishing deductive capabilities. The Navy is using her as a pawn in an intricate cover-up. Will Faydra play along or leak the cover-up?

Seasoned Navy Sea Captain Egan Fletcher struggles to balance his Navy career with raising a son alone after his wife died eight years ago. When the Navy purposefully pairs him with Faydra, the two embark on an adrenaline-laced adventure. The top-secret mission will propel them halfway around the world in an attempt to avert a catastrophic act of biological warfare.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Puget Sound and the mystique of Asia, Faydra is a paradox: one minute she is pure as the driven snow and the next minute she thrusts herself into harm's way, ignorant of the consequences. Determined to complete her mission at any cost, she defies logic and throws herself into dangerous situations. Will she succeed where everyone else has failed?

Fruit of the Poisonous Tree is book one in the riveting Spider Green Mystery Thriller series. If you enjoy razor-sharp dialogue, strong-willed characters, suspense, twists, and high-octane action, you'll want to start reading this fast-paced adventure today.

"Fay is a kick-butt adrenaline-rushing heroine who knows how to hold her own. Norm Harris is a brilliant author who knows how to write thrillers," N. N. Light, Amazon Vine™ Voice reviewer

My Review:

Fruit of the Poisonous Tree is the first book in the Spider Green Series it was not the first book by Norm Harris or the first book in the series that I read. Arid Sea book two was the first book in this series that I read. The second book was the third book, Deception Pass, and the last was the fourth book, The Girl Who Knew Death.

I fell in love with the Spider Green series with Arid Sea. Each book is unique in its way. Each story gets better and better. Like the rest of the series Fruit of the Poisonous Tree starts with a blast and never lets up. It kept me in suspense and on the edge of my seat from the first page until the last.

The descriptions were so well written that I had no problem picturing it all in my head as if I was right there. I could see and hear everything that happened. Fruit of the Poisonous Tree was a thrilling and intense read.

It started with Faydra “Spider” Green, a dedicated Navy JAG lawyer investigating her first homicide investigation, the brutal murder of a Navy SEAL. The further Faydra gets into her investigation the more she begins to think that this man may not be the person who committed the murder.

Is the man innocent? Or is the evidence pointing in the wrong direction? The further Faydra's investigation gets the more it begins to open up other connections, connections that could turn out to be deadly if they are not dealt with properly.

I would recommend Fruit of the Poisonous Tree to anyone who likes fast-paced, intense thrillers. Grab your copy of Fruit of the Poisonous Tree today!
