***** Review of She Serpent by Jim Woods

She SerpentShe Serpent by Jim Woods

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

She Serpent by Jim Woods was another fabulous short story. I must say Jim did it again.

Detective Harper finds an ad in the local newspaper about "At Sea Burial Services" aboard the Sea Spirit. Something just isn't right about him, he can feel it in his gut.

When his superiors tell him he has a enough work through the department, Harper decides to take a moonlighting job to investigate the Sea Spirit on his own time as a Security Guard.

He meets the owner of Sea Spirit, Angela Mastro after setting up a burial service inquiry. Angela explains the procedure for an at sea burial, along with the prices. As Harper looks further into the activities of Sea Spirit, he learns that he may have been wrong.

Though his gut is still nagging at him, he agrees to go to dinner with the beautiful Angela Mastro. In light of the evening, Harper now finds himself liking Angela.

Will Harper's instincts prove him right, or get him into trouble? Find out in She Serpent.

Woods has always written great material with an imagination that puts his own twist into crime and mystery. This short story was no different.

I give She Serpent ***** (5) Stars, BK Walker.
