The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore
William Morrow | 2014 | ISBN: 0061779768 | 336 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
Venice, a long time ago. Three prominent Venetians await their most loathsome and foul dinner guest: the rascal-Fool Pocket. This trio of cunning plotters have lured Pocket to a dark dungeon, promising an evening of sprits and debauchery. But their invitation is, of course, bogus. Desperate to rid themselves once and for all of the man who has consistently foiled their grand quest for power and wealth, they have lured him to his death. But this Fool is no fool . . . and he's got more than a few tricks (and hand gestures) up his sleeve. Greed, revenge, deception, lust, and a giant (but lovable) sea monster combine to create another hilarious and bawdy tale from modern comic genius, Christopher Moore.
