SNAKE by James McClure


Email this review


The fourth time out for Trekkersburg, South Africa's Lt. Tromp Kramer (and his nice Widow Fouri and his Bantu assistant Mickey Zondi) involved in two dissimilar cases. But the prime interest is in Eve who does a sexy number with her python, Clint, found strangled--by ""living ligatures""?--in the shoddy club where she works. You'll learn a good deal about the terrain as well as constrictors in particular. Then there's the humor (""He was dead, not all of him but enough for a working definition""), the undeluded black/white distinctions, and the decisive performance by Kramer which makes this series both special and specially good.
