Where Serpents Lie was my first introduction to the works of T. This is a long book but in my opinion a genuine page-turner. I read the author's story of how he was inspired to write this novel, specifically the birth of his protagonist Terry arising from his feelings of unspeakable dread after a nightmare. Parker stated in an interview that his purpose in this book was "to frighten and unsettle".

WHERE SEPENTS LIE is creepy as can be, mixing high suspense with interestingly troubled characters and a hungry thirty-foot long pet snake. Much of Parker’s dialogue is presented in the first person, providing reader Phil Gigante the opportunity to articulate the complex thoughts and emotions that drives both hunter and hunted. Gigante illuminates Parkers' powerful word pictures with a crisp, straightforward narration. Trade Ed., Brilliance Audio, 2009.

Where Serpents Lie pits the most memorable villain since Hannibal Lecter against an equally unforgettable hero in a thriller that is not only terrifying, but rich in psychological and moral complexity. It's a novel that will keep readers up at night, long after they've turned the last page. A page-turner for sure, but with a plausibility issue: a Master-Mind Obsessive Bad Guy a la Hannibal Lector. Too bad because the rest of the book including the other characters are definitely up to Parker standard. Still an excellent cheeseburger read.

Terry Naughton, head of Orange County's Crimes Against Youth unit, is the champion of children. Someone calling themselves the Horridus has been abducting children from their beds, dressing them like little angels, and releasing them the next day, the only clue he leaves is a piece of snakeskin tucked into the folds of their gowns. So far he hasn't physically harmed any of them, but as Naughton well knows, it's only a matter of time. As he races to find the madman before his crimes escalate, Naughton learns that the Horridus may not be the only enemy. When shocking (and seemingly irrefutable) accusations put his career on the line, he is forced to confront his dark and violent past in his search for the truth. Who is behind the setup? And even if he can clear his name, can he do the same for his conscience?

Where Serpents Lie was my first introduction to the works of T. Jefferson Parker. This novel was listed in "SERIAL KILLER NOVELS: TEN OF THE BEST" on Crime Fiction Lover.com.

I noted that there are already quite a number of superlative book reviews on goodreads that are readily available to readers that enjoy this genre. Personally I liked this novel quite a bit. I found it to be overall oppressive and grim, but nevertheless a riveting and unforgettable reading experience. A novel that's subject matter is the torture and murder of innocent children is not for everyone. This is a long book but in my opinion a genuine page-turner.

I read the author's story of how he was inspired to write this novel, specifically the birth of his protagonist Terry arising from his feelings of unspeakable dread after a nightmare. Parker stated in an interview that his purpose in this book was "to frighten and unsettle". He stated his goal for the serial predator was to create "a monster doing monstrous things", and in the character of Hypok he successfully brings "Horridus" to life for the reader. Ironically, I have an interest and fascination for snakes, thus the antagonist being surrounded by serpents both literally and figuratively was especially engaging for me.

This novel was written some time ago to be sure, but I would recommend it to those readers who do not mind a walk in the darkness, with the caveat that this book is not for the faint of heart .

There are several inaccurate things going on in this book. I saw the twists and turns coming from a mile away. As the title indicates, a snake is involved in this. There are several inaccurate statements regarding snakes and their eating habits, biological functions, and habitats. I am by no means an expert. I have just seen the snakes that my son raises and watched them over the years. Watch any basic Discovery Channel show and you will see what I am talking about.

Spoiler alert: There is no way that a snake eats a person (yes a large snake can eat a small child or person) and digest all of it, but the skull and leave it intact so that it can be identified. This is a constrictor, the bones are crushed while killing pray. What isn't crushed during this process are crushed while they are digested and work their way through the snake. It is basic biology. When it is finished digesting, there are different poop colors, white for calcium and other colors depending on what was eaten. Complete, intact bones are not expelled from the snake after digestion. I have seen enough with my son's snakes over the years and have yet to see a bone. His snakes eat small rodents. No, I don't particularly care for snakes either. I tolerate them.

Spoiler Alert: This book also deals with children being kidnapped and/or killed by a pedophile. There is a lot of pedophile type stuff written about in this book. Yes, I know it is out there. Yes, I know it exists. Yes, I knew it when I bought the book. I just wasn't expecting as much and as detailed as it was. I almost stopped reading the book because of it. The children depicted start out very young, like 2-3 years old. Just be aware.

All in all, I think this is one of his lesser works and I have read a lot of them over the years. I was disappointed, but I did finish the book. I kept hoping that it would get better.

There is an old Chinese proverb appropriate to the main characters love life " a man once bitten by a snake will look twice at a piece of rope." A thought which might have been use ful to Frank ,the lead detective of the child abduction unit of th Orange county Sheriff department. Frank is still mourning the drowning death of his 5 year old son a tragic accident which ultimately led to the breakup of his marriage. A co-worker Melinda stepped in to fill the void in Frank's life and they buy a house together. Frank and Mel's 9yr old daughter are beginning a new and growing family relationship in spite of the fact that Mel is the ex-wife of Ish, Frank's boss and rival.
A serial child abduction case develops involving an offender who abducted young girls from their beds at night and releases them unharmed with hoods over their heads dressed in lace. The word "HORRIDUS" is printed on the duct tape that covers the victims mouth. The word in Latin means "rough"but is commonly used as the Latin name for Rattlesnake. One of the victims manages to peek through a hole in the hood and is able to give a rough description of her abductors. However "HORRIDUS" is master of disguise and even reprints his vehicle.
As the number of abductions increase Frank spends more times dealing with the media,especially with a beautiful young
TV reporter who he favors with exclusive information. Just as he is about to pull the evidence together to tighten the noose around his suspect,Frank is confronted with photos of him having compromising sexual acts with an obviously under age girl in scabs on his property. He is immediately suspended from the Sheriff. Dept and his rival,Ish, takes over the investigation. Frank must now rally all his loyal co-workers,old friends,and even "HORRIDUS" to help him prove his innocence and discover who has betrayed him.
Parker will not spare you any details regarding how evil HORRIDUS is and how uses his serpents to dispatch his victims. If you are like me and are able to read and visualize what you read....uh-ooh you may have laundry problems!!
But. what the neck I wanted a thriller and I Got me a 5 ***** !

TJ Parker is a master at telling stories... and each of them are different, which make me want to read the next book. After this one,my 10th, I am ready for the next one... where serpent lies is another thriller that is hard to put down... a disgusting villain with a twisted mind in beautiful Orange County and an anti hero who tries to redeem himself... enjoy...
