Bite of the Serpent
Sequel to Tempest Rider Slate Morgan and Silver Black are married now and have moved to a farm near Sinking Spring Ohio. When they bought the land, they didn't realize that the farm next door to them was occupied by a group of pagans who had come to the area in order to be near Serpent Mound, which they believe is a vortex. The farm, called The Garden of Eden by its serpent worshipping inhabitants, is host to beliefs such as Wicca, Celtic, Atheist, and Native American; all grouped under a pagan banner. The farm is located in a longtime Christian Farming Community which has recently had an influx of Amish residents as well. It would seem they are heading for a culture clash. When Anne Baxter, the leader of the group is found murdered there are many suspects in this diverse community where she'd made many enemies and seemingly no friends. When suspicion falls on the Morgan family, on whose land the body is found, Silver feels she must help investigate in order to remove the cloud over her family's head. She sets out to learn all the local gossip so she can pass it on to the Sheriff who is investigating the murder. However, her snooping has riled up someone who has her in his/her sights, considering her a threat. This is a Who Dunnit set in a small community. With so many suspects you will be guessing who the culprit is until the last minute.
