Jose Guber is in love with a deadly woman. While writing his next crime novel, he is in search of a unique murder weapon, which is how he meets Melissa, a serologist who specializes in venomous snakes. Melissa becomes rather too interested in Jose's dastardly plots -- unashamedly plagiarized from the classics: Chesterton, Poe, Dostoevsky, his editor none the wiser -- and she especially likes the ones where diabolical women seduce and corrupt weak men. Melissa makes it clear that she would like to adapt one of the plots to dispose of her present husband, enabling Jose and Melissa to be together. -- Description from http://www.bookadda.com (Oct. 11, 2011)
