THE SATURNIAN SNAKE offers a style that blends the impact of the short story, the development of the novel, the intrigue of a psychological study, and the mystery of an allegory all in one. It is deceptively easy to read but is crafted so as to withstand the scrutiny of rereading at a variety of levels. With a background of three decades of medicine, The Saturnian Snake takes you on a suspenseful journey, following a man both gifted and cursed with an exceptional memory, a memory that is taken advantage of by others to assist in decoding a series of warnings delivered by a mysterious stranger. The path is strewn with rape, murder, and political intrigue, and the clues are masked in Greek and Roman mythology. This is a provocative book and one which will reverberate with the reader long after having been read.
