Announcing The Tale of the Black Mamba, by Lenore Angela:

"Sometimes from birth, the darkness in a man's soul is so riddled with spores, all that is left him is to incubate evil. In the same way vultures hover over the bleak remains of dying creatures, greed and cruelty hunch themselves atop the blades of this man's shoulders in anticipation of a feast."

Tale of the Black Mamba is a fast moving, darkly comic novel that challenges the bonds of family loyalty, love and power.

Chicago, 1901 and teen magician, Avery Fontaine is about to experience the thrill of a lifetime. Bizarre urgings from a gypsy hag lead him to the World's Fair in Buffalo, New York, on a hair-raising adventure in search of a secret treasure buried in a painting. With the help of his cousin Henri Dubois and friend Hattie Estabrook, Avery hovers between The World's Fair and Niagara Falls attempting to decipher the clues. But a harrowing twist of fate soon pits the trio into a frantic race for survival against a devious mastermind also on the hunt for the treasure: Dr. Wu, aka The Black Mamba. A tormented madman, blackmailer, art thief, kidnapper, hypnotist and potential killer all rolled into one rotten guy. It's a summer they'll never forget.
