Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney, Australia…
“Good lord, that feels delicious,” Tamara Rhodes purred as she stepped out
of the shower into a thick Turkish cotton bath towel.
The twenty-four-hour in-the-air first class flight from JFK to
Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney, Australia, had been a marathon, even
with the luxurious bed chamber fitted with a thousand thread count Italian
linen and all the best Champagne one could drink. Even so, it had left her
exhausted. To try her exceedingly thin patience, upon arriving at her
lodgings, she found that the hotel overlooking the Harbor and Opera House,

Goliath bird eater or Australian Tarantula, as the air hostess had referred to it.
She had laughingly tried to soothe Tamara’s mind—rather unsuccessfully, if
her current reaction coming face-to-face with the mafioso of spiders was
anything to go by.
“Now you listen to me, Mr. Spidey, if you know what’s good for you,
