Summary

In a quiet Midwestern city...

A community is coming apart at the seams. He is a mild-mannered academic turned serial killer being hunted for crimes he doesn't recognize as his own. She is a TV anchorwoman losing the ratings game - and the only person who understands the evil that drives him. Between them, an innocent young girl's life hangs in the balance....

In an empty apartment somewhere in the city...

He has found a manila envelope that holds gruesome portraits of his deeds. Notes inside tell him of his next, unspeakable act. Despite himself, he will follow these instructions as if they were his own....

In the dark street shadows...

The police scramble furiously to understand him...to stop him. While a TV reporter is onto the story of a lifetime. She knows who he is...and who his next victim will be. What she doesn't know is how little time she has left - and how terrible is the power of The Serpent's Kiss....

Serpent's Kiss

Liked this book. Good read. Kept me interested. The narrating by Gregory Silva was also okay. I don't get the bad reviews. Ed Gorman IMO is a good writer, plus he gets a lot of respect from other writers and professional reviewers.

Don’t bother

This book is truly one of the worst I have ever read. I got to chapter 7 and had to stop reading. In addition to an awful story line, the Audible performance was poor. The gentleman reading it only reads 5 words at a time, pauses, 5 words, pauses, etc. His phrasing has nothing to do with the story being told and makes it difficult to follow the plot. This book was a total waste of my time.
