A SCOURGE OF VIPERS by Bruce DeSilva
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: April 7, 2015

A fourth chapter in the race to the bottom between the state of Rhode Island and Providence Dispatch reporter Liam Mulligan (Providence Rag, 2014, etc.).Read full book review >

Released: March 11, 2014

"DeSilva, drawing on a real-life case, pours on the ethical complications with such unrelenting suspense that you'll be glad you don't live in Rhode Island. Only the last few chapters are a letdown from the general excellence."
