The Silence of the Snakes (Madigan Amos #2), by Ruby Loren

Ruby Loren, September 2017

Madigan Amos is on her second-ever zoo consulting job, doing a review of animal welfare conditions with the aim of recommending improvements. The Snidely Wildlife and Safari zoo is very different from the Avery zoo where she previously worked, including such additions as an impressive collection of venomous snakes and reptiles.

The Snidely family itself is more than a bit odd, even before more distant connections start turning up.

Madigan finds herself caught off guard by the venomous snakes, a string of thefts, and the unexpected arrival of Lowell, the detective who investigated the unexpected deaths at Avery.

The story is a bit haphazard, and not likely to be lasting literature, but it's entertaining and enjoyable.

Recommended for a light, quick read.

I received a free electronic galley of this book and am reviewing it voluntarily.
