Overview

Derek Stillwater, bioterrorism expert for the Department of Homeland Security, already has his bags packed for vacation when he gets the call: "Sarin gas attack on a Detroit restaurant. Fifty-two dead." The killer calls himself the Serpent and demands three million dollars. If he is not paid on time, more people will die.

Special Agent Jill Church is assigned to keep tabs on Stillwater. While the FBI brass are playing politics with the press, Stillwater and Church discover a disturbing link to a cult responsible for the sarin attacks on a Japanese subway.

Furious at Stillwater's unorthodox methods, the FBI demands his immediate arrest. Now suspended from the case, Church knows that she and Stillwater are the only ones who can stop the Serpent from releasing sarin gas at a concert. 21,000 lives are at stake–including her own son's.

    A reviewer

    From the very first page I said to myself, ¿This author can really write,¿ and throughout the novel I wasn¿t let down. I was immediately drawn in by Mark Terry¿s pacing and his wry sense of humor, which he weaves into his snappy dialogue and descriptive tapestry. At first, when the main character was introduced, I was a little put off by how quickly he caved in about getting involved with the case,a serin gas attack¿he had other, more important plans¿but, hey, Terry is offering a fast-paced thriller here and there is no time for our unconventional hero, Derek Stillwater, to agonize. As for Derek Stillwater, you¿ve gotta love the guy. He¿s cranky and impatient and acts on impulses about which the rest of us only fantasize. His foisted-upon-him sidekick, FBI agent Jill Church, is cool, pragmatic and likeable. Jill¿s teen-aged son Michael is woven nicely into the story, including the exciting climax. Her politically connected boss, Matt Gray, is the perfect foil for both Church and Stillwater. Their antagonist, The Serpent, is diabolical and pure evil. There are many twists and turns and the ending has a nice little surprise that cleverly sets up the next Derek Stillwater novel. Mark Terry baits his hook, casts it out into the world of the unsuspecting reader and, if you are one of the lucky ones who takes the bait and reads The Serpent¿s Kiss, you will be glad he reeled you in. Set in Detroit, the pace of The Serpent¿s Kiss is fast and furious. It¿s a Derek Thrillwater of a read.

    The Terror never ends!

    The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and DHS (Department of Homeland Security) are at odds in the persons of Jill Church and Derek Stillwater. Derek always rubs everyone the wrong way. Jill is ordered to keep him in the dark and out of the way. If you¿ve read any Derek Stillwater novels, you know that isn¿t going to work. Instead Jill becomes embroiled in Derek¿s unorthodox methods, and she finds herself on the wrong side of her boss, again. But does that matter when there¿s a terrorist, The Serpent, out there killing people with imprudence? And each time he strikes, its at a larger target. The action never stops, and neither do the surprises. The reader will find a lot to like in Derek Stillwater, and a lot to dislike in those who try to keep him down. Reviewed by Wanda C. Keesey
