2 Give@way: The Serpent's Bite by Warren Adler


The Serpent’s Bite, is set on the treacherous trails and isolated wilds of Yellowstone Park, where an aging father, George Temple, seeks to use a nostalgic horse trek to reconcile with his estranged daughter and son.  They hadn’t seen one another since the passing of George’s wife nearly five years earlier and the family reunion is intended to bring back memories of their first trek 20 years earlier. The story reveals hidden secrets that plague the family and lead to disaster.
George, a wealthy man, had  previously cut off his children from additional handouts after having given each of them millions of dollars to further their failed dreams.  Scott still hoped to get his business off the ground while Courtney was still looking to make it big as an actress.  But George wants to unite the family and ask for their support as he announces plans to wed again, so he decides to resume funding what he knows are lost pursuits, feeling both guilty for cutting them off earlier and  now for enabling them with the reinstatement of payments.
The Serpent’s Bite leaves a trail of destruction that forces the reader to question just how far one will go to pursue failed dreams. It also raises many questions: Will love win out over greed? Can the bonds of family override the selfish desires of individuals? Can one get what they want when guided by a broken moral compass? This novel draws us into the snake pit of the human soul -- with little chance of survival.
Warren’s books have achieved a high level of success.  Two were made into movies—The War of the Roses and Random Hearts.  One, The Sunset Gang, was turned into a PBS-TV trilogy and an off-Broadway play.  Nine other books were optioned to Hollywood, including Private Lies for a then-record 1.2 million dollars.  The War of the Roses, which starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner (Danny DeVito directed), was also sold this spring to become a Broadway musical (the non-musical has been adapted in over a dozen countries).  His books have been published in 25 languages and have been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Today Show, Rolling Stone, and scores of leading media outlets.  He’s been dubbed “the master of dysfunction.”
