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.
