A plague of snakes

Having just finished Janet Gleeson’s The Serpent in the Garden, imagine my surprise when I saw that not one, not two, but three historical mysteries set for release this year also included the word “serpent” in their titles.  Perhaps it shouldn’t be astonishing that this well-known representation of evil is so frequently used, but I was still intrigued enough to search through my blogroll sites to see what other authors had made use of this creature.
