STORY-LINE THE SILENCE OF THE SNAKES BY RUBY LOREN:
Well, Madi’s back in the thick of things again. Working as an zoo animal welfare and breeding consultant, she’s at Snidely Safari and Wildlife Park. As always, Madi seems to attract trouble, and this tale is no different. Something odd is going on at the Safari and Wildlife Park and Madie’s determined to find out what!
When a woman’s found dead with a cleaver in her head, her ex-boyfriend George Ashdown missing from the scene, and leaving his green mamba Mr. Limey, Madi has her hands full. With the odd behavior occurring at the Park, Madie wonders what’s going on. Of course, who should appear in this action packed tale but tall, dark, and handsome Lowell, private detective; who we met in Book 1.
Will Madi and Lowell uncover the killer, find who’s stealing from Dracondia Manor, home of the Snidelys and a huge variety of venomous snakes on public exhibition? While at the same time, discover why the priceless Snidely Serpentine Emerald’s cursed, ferret out the reasons for the employee’s odd irrational behavior, and save the day? My cozy mystery book reviews of The Silence Of The Snakes follows.
