THE NIGHT SERPENT
In Anna Leonard's The Night Serpent (4), a myth based in ancient Egypt and strong characters take readers through a plot that's convincingly realistic in spite of its supernatural elements. Lily's nightmare visions are vivid and well-detailed.
When bank teller and cat shelter volunteer Lily Malkin helps FBI special agent John T. Patrick track a serial cat killer he's afraid will escalate into slaying humans, the case gets a little strange. Lily realizes that the nightmares that have plagued her for years may be connected to the man who's ritualistically killing male cats.
