    A Slithering Good Time

    There's a killer on the loose with his weapons and accomplices rolled all into one slithering, rattling package. Only Cara Banks, an evidence technician for the police department, suspects that the death is not as accidental as it has been ruled. She has to convince her ex-husband, Detective Jack Carter that she's right before she becomes his next victim. Patricia Rasey has crafted an expert tale of seduction and terror within these few chapters, leading the reader off in different directions at every turn and making us wonder if our instincts are correct or if we're off on our own wild snake chase. It's obvious that Rasey has done her research for this story with her spare-no- gory-details descriptions of the damage inflicted on the victims by the snake venom. As a snake lover, I was a little concerned that this story was going to give the oft-maligned exotherms an even worse reputation than they already have. Thankfully, Rasey seems to have gone out of her way to point out that the snakes are just more innocent victims of a madman's cruelty. The book rushes along at breakneck speed, hitting its only bump at the end when the killer's identity is revealed. There is a slight amount of ambiguity involving the assumed name of the culprit that was never completely explained and the ending seemed just a bit rushed. However, it doesn't detract from the overall excellence of the book and I would not hesitate to read this tale again. The additional short story, In the Mind of Darkness that is included at the end is nothing short of breathtaking. I found myself dabbing my eyes as I finished it and wanting more at the same time! Do yourself a favor this weekend and read Fear the Dark!

    After this one, you WILL fear the dark...

    Detective Jack Carter had divorced Cara Banks two years ago. Cara was an Evidence Tech for the police force, so he knew that he would be running into her from time to time. But they had managed to avoid each other, except for a nod of greeting as the passed each other in the hall. That changed when the first woman was found dead in her closet. She had died from multiple rattle snake bites. The two had to work together if there was a chance of finding the killer. .......................... With a second body came a link. Both women were members of an elite singles' club named Manny's. Cara must go undercover to find the killer. Problem was that the killer knew who they were and was not yet ready to be found. ............................ **** A wonderful detective thriller with just a touch of romance. I was engrossed from the first page! This one will put chills down your spine! ****

    Lights On!! Lock the Doors!!

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO READ 'FEAR THE DARK' WITHOUT A LOT OF LIGHTS ON! And while you are at it, make sure that you have locked the doors, and plugged up any entrances that anything can slither through. Best get your feet up off the floor too. High off the floor! FEAR THE DARK will scare you to death. Ms. Rasey has created the scariest monster imaginable. He will definitely have chills running up and down your spine for a very long time. And it isn't just the snake! A young woman has been found dead, killed in a most unusual way. She was found dead in her own closet, having been bitten by a snake. How can this happen? This isn't the great outdoors; nor are these the woods or forests. This is the city! To make it even more confusing she was found in the closet of her own home. Not a usual place to be finding victims of deadly venomous snake bites. But she is dead, and the cause of death is definitely due to snakebites. Detective Jack Carter chalks it up to an accident, but Cara Banks, the evidence tech assigned to the case, and Jack's ex-wife, doesn't believe that this is an accident. She believes that someone killed this young woman on purpose, using a snake as the weapon. And she is going to prove it. Soon another young woman dies the same way, and now Jack cannot deny that there is someone out there using a snake as the weapon to do so. Jack and Cara are having a very difficult time working together as there are still unresolved issues in regards to their short marriage. However somehow they are going to have to do it, or more women are going to be killed. But can they? And what kind of a monster owns venomous snakes, and is using them as a weapon? FEAR THE DARK is absolutely terrifying. Ms. Rasey has created a monster that is even worse than the snakes he uses. The story is so realistic that if you aren't afraid of snakes already, you certainly will think twice next time you are near one. Or perhaps it is their owner you should be very careful of. Not only has Ms. Rasey created an absolutely terrifying mystery; she has also created a story about a couple that at one time were very much in love. After their short marriage breaks up, they have to handle difficult feelings, and each other, while being thrown together on a murder case most of the time. I absolutely love the way Ms. Rasey can have two completely different story lines going on at the same time, in one book. She interweaves them so well, that you don't realize that there are two. You can follow both story's with no confusion, and never skip a beat. She is absolutely amazing with this technique. And she has done it again with FEAR OF THE DARK. The only beat you will miss is the skipping of your heartbeat when you 'feel' the snakes slither across the floor, ready to strike.
