Publisher's Summary

A DCI Michael Yorke thriller.

A vicious serial killer slithers from the darkness, determined to resurrect the ways of a long-dead civilization. 

When the ex-wife of one of DCI Michael Yorke’s closest allies is left mutilated and murdered, Yorke and his team embark on their greatest test yet. A deeply personal case that will push them to their very limits. And, as Yorke’s team are pulled further into the dark, the killer circles, preparing to strike again. 

The Repenting Serpent is a true edge-of-the-seat, nail-biting pause resister!

The Repenting Serpent

This author has a way of starting a book out and leaving me rather confused among all the relationships and partially fleshed out background stories and then he brings it all together over time and makes the whole thing rocket towards a great conclusion. I like the characters and the plot lines as they develop. This is detective mystery done right.

Book Review

The two different killers were very creepy.
At times it was difficult to tell who was speaking as the narrator occasionally sounded the same and there wasn't a good separation.
The main mystery had Detective York and his colleagues trying to track down the killer of a friend's ex wife. The killer was delusional and thought he was helping bring back the Aztec empire and beliefs. He practiced rituals and there was a lot of Aztec symbolism in the story.
At the same time another wacko, Lacey, who had been involved with Jake, a detective, made a reappearance and put him under a lot of stress while killing some people and having a connection to the current case.
Detective York has to deal with some personal feelings during the investigation as he is close to some of the people involved. Lots of frustration trying to figure out the connections between some of the victims.

I will read this book again

overall I enjoyed this book very much the narrator is getting much better I did not have to rewind a lot to understand details because he was reading so fast however I did not like how the author tied the end of the book off as a reader I would have been frustrated if he hadn't tied off the ends but I think that would have been a better choice to start the next book off with the ending of this book I like how the main characters sister's death was intertwined in the story I miss the female villain that's been in previous books that abducted the child in the last unless of course she's the woman that the sergeant detective Meet in the story which would be a truly Wicked way of entering her back in I will definitely be looking forward to reading the next installment of these characters
