Chilling..... Dec 7 2002
By David K. Taggart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
You'll never think of Central Park the same again......

Through a series of circumstances, an adult black mamba, the deadliest snake in the world, becomes lose in Central Park in New York City.

The resulting suspence is chilling. The plot slithers forward, and then twists and strikes repeatedly -- this could be the definition of "couldn't-put-it-down."

My wife read this for the first time, in one sitting, AFTER our first trip to New York City, and even though we were back home, it still scared her.

Mamba Mia! Sept. 25 2006
By Laura Ann Scaife - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I enjoy a good thriller and would have considered this to be one of the better ones except for one thing - I'M TERRIFIED OF SNAKES! That fact alone makes this one of the best and most terrifying novels I have ever read. It's also one of the few that I simply had to read in one sitting. I really wasn't sure that if I put it down I'd be able to pick it up again. It's that good. And if you want to know just how bad the mamba's reputation is, I have a friend who lived for some years in Africa, and he wouldn't even touch the book. Even if you don't mind snakes, this one will get to you.

The Snake May 29 2008

Excellent book; a quick read. Would have been better if there had been more scenes from the snake's point of view.

Good Hammer Mystery March 9 2003
By Bryan Schingle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While not equal with "I, the Jury" or "My Gun is Quick", this book is a step up from "The Girl Hunters", the previous one in the series. Hammer is at his normal tricks, shooting thugs and slugging it out with crooks, trying to protect a young girl from hitmen. This book is Spillane at the top of his game, with or without the unbelievable ending.

The Snake Oct. 2 2011
By D. Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first read this book many years ago. I found it on a bargain book table for a couple of dollars. The novel is interesting and keeps the reader in suspense from the first page to the last. It is one of my favorites and I was glad to find it again.
