The snake
—Godey, John, 1912-2006.

On a steamy night in Central Park, a sailor returning from South Africa gets mugged. What the mugger doesn't know is that the sailor is carrying a deadly Black Mamba-the most poisonous snake in the world. The sailor is murdered, the mugger is bitten, and the snake slithers off into the underbrush-and becomes the terror of Central Park. John Godey's fast-paced, no-frills prose keeps the action intense as the city authorities rush to capture the snake-and the populace tries to stay out of its way. With all the heart-pumping action of Jaws, but set in the center of one of the world's most populated urban centers, this book guarantees you'll never look at Central Park the same way again.
