‘Toxic Love’ by Mickey Wright

In the underground venomous snake world of Chattanooga writhes a labyrinth of characters – hobbyists, collectors, clergy, dealers…
In the labyrinth of caves, tunnels and buried buildings beneath Chattanooga lies a myriad of secrets, ancient, old and new.
In the buried spaces of the human heart lies a world of love, loss, pain, murder and exultation. Faith is lost, gained and lost again and so is love.
Enter this hidden world and discover the flowing stories that are its life blood – converging and diverging like the Tennessee river that runs through it.
People are dying, bitten by their “pets”. But something seems amiss to Nick Lucas, wildlife expert, who is called in to manage their “orphaned” snakes.
Nick has fallen for Karen “Lamia” Dunn, but finds himself in a maelstrom of an affair.
Jebediah Jordan is a snake-handling preacher. When he dies he leaves 15 year-old Cassie Frazier without her secret lover and the father of her unborn child. But this wasn’t Cassie’s only secret.
Why exactly is the cavern that connects Lookout Mountain with Underground Chattanooga sealed off?
Why was serpent-shaped Citico mound, a Native American site, bulldozed down?
Nick is determined to solve these puzzles and the puzzling love he shares with Karen.
