“For those who love supernatural conspiracies and wickedly clever suspense, The Tao of the Viper by Linda Watkins is an excellent second installment of the Kate Pomeroy mystery series. The novel has something serious to say about the machinations of power, while patiently unveiling a captivating mystery and building on Watkins’ engaging heroine.

“The Tao of the Viper is a fantastic and dark paranormal mystery, with Linda Watkins delivering enough suspense and chills to knock it into the thriller genre as well. Kate is a great protagonist, balancing general affability with dark and intrusive fallibility, and making her as complex as her extraordinary family history … an engrossing series for readers who enjoy mysteries with a supernatural twist, and those who are inevitably drawn in won’t have to wait long for book three, Abducted.” ~Jamie Michele for Readers Favorite
“The combination of real-world crime and supernatural mystery is absolutely delightful … The author has presented the tug of war between Kate’s logical brain and the resemblance of the legends of the viper with the old man to perfection … As a reader, I was glued to my kindle … The Tao of the Viper has the power to hold its readers until the last page … The intrigue never ends and the plot moves at a steady pace. I would recommend this book to supernatural mystery lovers. The story will keep readers on their toes until the end.” ~Ankita Shula for Readers Favorite
“This novel sent chills down my spine from the moment I started reading. From the opening lines to the final paragraph, Linda Watkins gave readers something very special…I enjoyed how the author kept a clean balance between the supernatural and the real world in the novel…a very entertaining, action-packed and enjoyable concoction that had me hooked!” ~Rabia Tanveer for Readers Favorite
“Unlike many mystery genre reads, Linda Watkins cultivates a unique voice and an ability to weave disparate themes into her story of a doctor recovering from her own life’s blows…Contrasts between character traits and underlying motifations and influences are well done, while Watkins injects fine, thought-provoking moments into Kate’s discoveries that continually challenge reader anticipation and presumptions…It’s a top pick for mystery readers who look for more than the usual whodunit.”~Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
