About the Book

The Venom Business

by Michael Crichton, writing as John Lange

As an expert handler of venomous snakes --- and a smuggler of rare artifacts --- Charles Raynaud is accustomed to danger. So the job bodyguarding an old acquaintance about to come into a fortune shouldn't make him break a sweat.

But when the attempts on the man's life nearly get Raynaud killed, he's left wondering: is he the killers' real target?
