Madam Tulip and the Serpent's Tree by David Ahern - Guest Blogger Book Review


Synopsis

Actress Derry O’Donnell, moonlighting as fortune-teller Madam Tulip, finds herself in a famous pop singer’s entourage.

But at the star’s glittering birthday party in the Dublin mountains, Derry finds a band riven by rivalries and feuds. Behind the trouble is a mysterious Russian guru, a shaman hated by everyone but the singer whose life she dominates.

When the shaman mysteriously disappears, suspicion threatens to tear the band apart. Was she victim or poisoner? Guilty or innocent? Dead or alive?

Two brilliant and beautiful musicians; an ambitious band manager with a shady past; a sax player entranced by Vikings—each has a secret to share and a request for Madam Tulip.

Madam Tulip and the Serpent’s Tree is fourth in the Madam Tulip mystery series, in which Derry O’Donnell, her sidekick Bruce and best friend Bella, play the most exciting and perilous roles of their acting lives.

Jennifer's Review
Madam Tulip and the Serpent's Tree is a good book. It's the fourth book in a the Madam Tulip series. Madam Tulip is a fortune teller who gets invited by her friend, Bella, to a theatre where she is encouraged to tell the fortunes for a small group of band members. 
Each one is different, but they all dislike each other. Their manager, a guy named Pat Kelly, is very strict and has done some bad things, which Madam Tulip later learns, so when she finds out what’s going on with the band members and their manager, Pat has to do something bad to her and a guy named Bruce. 
What he does to them is shocking, but the ending is great. 
I give this book 4 stars.

Author Bio
David Ahern grew up in a theatrical family in Ireland. He become a research psychologist in Scotland and the Netherlands, before inevitably his genes kicked in and he absconded to work in television. He became a writer, director and producer, creating international documentary series and winning numerous awards, none of which got him free into nightclubs.

He played in great bands, all doomed to obscurity, and wrote equally obscure plays, before taking to novel-writing. He now creates the Madam Tulip mysteries, in part as a tribute to the way actors never give up dreaming, but mostly to make himself laugh and scratch his head. David Ahern loves pretending this is actual work.

David lives in the beautiful West of Ireland with his wife, a cat, a tame pheasant, a clan of badgers and a vegetable garden.
