The Serpent Gowanus is a mystery thriller that the author accurately touts as a "wild ride." For me it was a roller coaster. One moment I was touched with joy, the next I experienced chills of emotion and then sadness before I was violently thrown into a fear for the lives of the characters. A few chapters made me despair of what man is capable of doing to his fellow man. Others starkly reminded me that joy isn't the property of a privileged class, a caring soul can be found beneath a shell of anguish, romance can be expressed in the face of the cruelest desolation and love can survive as a purity within the walls of hell. Yes, this is a mystery thriller, but it is much, much more.
The author also frequently caught me off guard with the humorous, quirky, and the often-bizarre habits of the small town residents - to the point where I was laughing out loud. My husband was so intrigued with my outburst reactions that I was soon sharing possession of my tablet so he could discover the reasons behind my pleasure with the book. He tells me there is a bit of Dean Koontz and Stephen King lurking within the chapters. Perhaps, but what I saw was a clever new author with a voice all of his own. I highly recommend this book.
