Publisher's Summary

Wheeler Cassidy, charming prankster of a wealthy Beverly Hills family, has never done much with his life except play golf, drink, and seduce other men's wives. But after his politically connected brother's mysterious death, Wheeler embarks on a perilous journey, to find himself and the Chinese gangsters who murdered the only member of his family he ever really loved. Along the way, he teams up with Tanisha Williams, a beautiful African American detective raised in South Central and now assigned to the L.A.P.D. Asian Crime Task Force. Born just 15 minutes from each other but worlds apart, the two make a combustible pair. Together, they face the violence and corruption that stretches from Hong Kong's most notorious criminal, Triad, to the highest reaches of American government. It's an international conspiracy of huge proportions which will take Wheeler and Tanisha halfway around the world and into the most dangerous adventure of their lives... Sweeping from the exclusive enclaves of Beverly Hills to the mean streets of South Central to the deadly labyrinth of Hong Kong's mysterious walled city, Riding the Snake is an irresistible web of intrigue and roller-coaster action, with author Stephen J. Cannell at his twisty, cinematic best.

Fun but simplistic thriller

First let me say that the sound quality is not great. It could be easily fixxed but for some reason it is not. This is a fun quick thriller. Not very believable, in terms of action, but fun none the less. Reader is great but the deep hollow bass of the sound makes you have to turn the volume up real load to hear the story.
