Publisher's Summary

A brand-new designer drug arrives in New York City with the force of a hurricane: Triple X, a potentially lethal combination of ecstasy and gamma radiation that is literally turning users from the shadowy, dank alleys to the glittering, raucous party circuit into living, rampaging nightmares. For high school science teacher Peter Parker, Triple X's onslaught on some of his students and his wife's professional life is as dangerous as it is unexpected. For Peter's secret alter-ego, the costumed crime-fighter known to the world as Spider-Man, the situation quickly accelerates from bad to worse, as the drug's effects run unchecked against law enforcement's and his own valiant efforts to rein in the city-wide chaos. 

But there is a growing consensus between Spider-Man and the police that, for reasons yet unknown, one of the arachnid's most fearsome enemies may be behind it all as part of a greater scheme to bring the city - and one of its most heroic and hated defenders - to its knees at long last.

This book is so much fun!

As a kid I would come home from school and read this Spidey easy read
Spiderman comic books. Also sponsored by the electric company. I couldn’t wait to get a new issue each month. This book brought back a lot of memories of that after a long day and I’m a Mentry school I will scape in the Spiderman and read those for hours. Now being 53 years old it was going to go back and relive part of my childhood with a new adventure. If you like superhero stories of any kind this book is right up there with all of them.

I have read many of Keith ‘a books and this book is this fun as the rest.

Worthwhile! Don’t let the picture fool you!

The picture sure is repulsive. However this just goes to show you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. I’ve read nearly every Spider-Man book on here save 1 or 2, and this hits top 5. I def recommend. Give it a listen!

Good performance, good premise, but...

I don't read the comics much, so I don't know if this was adapted from a continuing storyline, but I did feel the ending was rushed and anticlimactic. The premise was intriguing, so was the build up, but the payoff just wasn't satisfactory. It leaves itself open for a sequel (or the next storyline if this is an adaptation). The performance was pretty solid too - the narrator put effort into the dialogue. All in all - it's meh. Try it and see what you think.
