4 1/2 stars. 'Carrie Stuart Parks latest novel is her best yet. Written with an open mind toward highly controversial subject matter --- snake handling in religion --- she gives voice to the characters who most would deem crazy or cult-like. The action begins at page one, and the suspense doesn't let go until the very end. Readers continually shift and change their perception of what is going on and who is behind it. It all culminates with a shocking and unexpected climax that does not disappoint.'
