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.
