Set in London, Wiltshire and Orkney 'There Came a Big Spider' sees the ever-exuberant Marcus Moon attempting to climb the ladder of success at his new company. Bitterly resented by an ambitious colleague who sees him as a rival, they are put together to oversee the design of a large government project. When Marcus is asked to see if he can minimize the adverse ecological effects of the design on the beautiful countryside round the market town of Kingscastle, his work leads him into the hilarious world of office politics, sexual deviance, protest groups and buried treasure. A sometimes zany, always enjoyable plot full of humour and energy, this is the eagerly awaited prequel to the popular Marcus Moon series. Light entertainment at its very best!
