A San Diego cop confronts a snake-charming cultist

Late at night in a posh San Diego resort, a man feels his blood turn to fire. He writhes in agony on Egyptian-cotton sheets, sure he is dying but unaware of the cause. When a Kenyan chambermaid finds his corpse, she is certain he was killed by the scourge of her homeland: Ebola.

The case falls to second-generation homicide detective Seamus Moynihan, a hardened veteran who has never seen a corpse so ravaged by the pains of death. But the maid was wrong--the cause wasn’t Ebola, but a rattlesnake bite. More men turn up dead by rattlesnake. In order to catch the reptile-wielding serial killer, Monarch must confront a sinister, fanatical cult and solve one of history’s oldest puzzles by answering a single, disturbing question: Who was the second woman after Eve?
