After the hard-hitting Candle for Lucifer, Andrew de Berry is back in his best anti-establishment form. Internal police, politics and freemasonry get a bashing this time! A serving Police Inspector Fortunately times are changing for female police officers, even though chauvinism and freemasonry continue to exist. A compelling read! Two serving female police sergeants A well-written and uncomfortable insight into the seedy underbelly of the Church, Freemasonry, and all aspects of the criminal justice sys C - A serving police constable Chasing the serpent focuses on Shane McArthur - a young Scot wrongfully convicted of his girlfriend murder. In sharing Shane's journey through prison, might he be linked to an earlier troubled soul, more so when a ghost materialises in his cell? Nicholas de la Croix is also central to the story. A disillusioned priest, who in choosing to become a prison chaplain finds himself in the same establishment as Shane, and where both discover friendship from unexpected quarters. A story of jealousy, Freemasonry and corrupt policemen we encounter loathing and love, vicious retribution and reconciliation.
A thriller of murder and revenge, Chasing the Serpent explores who we are, whether through ideas of reincarnation, karma, etc. The serpent in mythology is a symbol of contradictions: Wisdom and cunning, healing and death. Its associations within Judaeo-Christianity first appear in the Garden of Eden, where Satan the fallen angel disguises himself as a snake.
