The Medusa Plot by Gordon Korman
Napa Valley, California, 5:42 A.M., Pacific Time Zone
Fiske Cahill loved the early morning — the glorious moment when the suns’ rays broke over the the mountaintops. He would always be an easterner but there was no place quite like California.
He eased himself into the mineral bath, feeling the bracing sting of water heated by magma trapped deep within the earth. The ache and stiffness of his sixty-nine-year-old body seemed to melt away, and he knew complete relaxation and contentment. Nothing could spoil the perfection of this moment.
He closed his eyes. That was his first mistake. There was a tiny splash as the snake hit the water. . .
“No such luck.”
I love this series!
