Electric Green Mambas is the third book in the Scott Brody Thriller series by Bryan Cassiday. I knew I couldn’t miss this third installment in the series after reading Murder LLC, in which a woman enlists the services of the private detective to find a missing brother who is embroiled with a ruthless drug cartel. Scott Brody is a Los Angeles PI, a deeply flawed human being and a persistent man with a keen mind. In this installment, he is hired by Evelyn Martin to find her missing brother, Tyler Keogh. Tyler is an engineer and a successful one. When Brody investigates his disappearance, he unveils clues left by a serial killer, clues that connect to a dangerous cult. The killer seems to be targeting members of the LA Mensa board of directors to which Tyler belongs. Can Brody find him before it is too late?

Electric Green Mambas is a psychologically affecting thriller that will entertain readers who enjoy solid characters and a serpentine plot. The twists are manifold, and readers have no idea what will happen next in the story. Bryan Cassiday is a master at creating original plot points, and he weaves suspense effortlessly into the narrative. One of the strengths of this story is the complexity of the characters. The characters are elaborately written, especially Brody, a man who at one point begins to doubt his ability to solve the case, suffering from delusions and wondering if a spell has been cast on him to prevent him from finding the serial killer. The writing is superb, littered with vivid descriptions. Electric Green Mambas is fast-paced and gripping; it is as immersive as any crime thriller can be.
