Award-winning author Lisa Tuttle returns with a grippingly sinister tale.

When Iain’s friend Nic becomes friendly with Lia, Iain begins to act very strangely. He plants the idea in Lia’s head that her natural mother is a murderer who killed several men, claiming she was possessed by a snake. Soon Lia becomes convinced that she too has a snake inside.


Tuttle is a sweet relief. By the time it was over I was so thoroughly violated that I needed to scrub my brain with steel wool . . . Tuttle's books are messy and chaotic. They feel desperate. They feel human. They feel like real life.

Lisa Tuttle has become a major force in macabre fiction
Stephen Jones, in ‘Fantasy Review’ on Lisa Tuttle
Tuttle manages to combine the restless, biting curiosity of a natural SF writer with an ability to project a real feeling.'
Evening Standard on Lisa Tuttle
She brings to the literature a subtlety and power, which, sometimes shading into horror, is a quite distinctive voice demanding to be heard . . . exceptional, very female, art
Independent on Sunday on Lisa Tuttle
I'm not sure if she should be considered just a horror writer. She's much more, a great storyteller who defies labels, a fine writer talking about feelings and emotions we all have experienced some time in our lives. Most of her stories leave us not frightened, but uneasy with the feeling of how lonely and melancholic the human existence can be behind its shiny façade
