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.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Author Ruby Loren’s latest book in the Madigan Amos Mystery Series, The Silence of the Snakes, begins with a bang and continues at a fast pace. With employee’s suddenly going crazy, thievery in Dracondia Manor, and murder in the Safari and Wildlife Park, there’s no lack of action in The Silence Of The Snakes. Add in saving the crazed lion keeper, a sick mamba snake, the handsome Lowell, a touch of jealousy on Madi’s part, and many other “not to be missed” elements, Madi’s in full detective mode.
Skillfully crafting the mystery and suspense, Loren leads the reader through her tale with vivid descriptions, and clear clean writing; while holding the mystery, who, what, where and why close to her chest. What a tale of the how the Serpentine Emerald came into existence! Then when you find out the snake———-, no, that be a spoiler, you will have to read the book. Slowly all’s revealed, but not before, incurring suspense and action. With many suspects, skillfully developed by Loren, I did not choose the correct culprit. When all’s revealed, my mouth dropped open, and I said “what”!
Madi’s still the same dedicated zoo keeper but with a new title; helping other zoo’s improve their habitats and care of the animals she loves so much. Madi’s a strong woman with a moral compass and dedication. As usual Loren gives the reader information about all the different species. Ruby Loren skillfully teaches the reader while entertaining. She weaves these facts into the story-line with skill and finesse.
With plotting which is full of suspense, intrigue, and mystery, I found The Silence Of The Snakes a solid entertaining mystery book. I love creating book reviews for cozy mysteries as they have strong female leads and include all the elements needed for a first-rate mystery. Loren‘s writing’s clear and easy to read with scenes which transition smoothly and her prose flows well. The Silence Of The Snakes, perfect for a lazy afternoon of reading pleasure, entertains with mystery, suspense, and a touch of light romance. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
