Electric Green Mambas

A serial killer recalling the likes of Charles Manson stalks LA.


The victims have one thing in common. They are all members of the board of directors at the LA branch of Mensa.


The savagery of the murders has the city on edge.


Evelyn Martin thinks her brother Tyler, an aeronautical engineer in Mensa who has gone missing, will be next on the killer’s hit list.


She hires Scott Brody PI to find Tyler, who she fears might be dead.


As Brody conducts his search, he keeps discovering victims of the serial killer who leaves clues connecting the murders to a hopped-up cult that collects Nazi memorabilia and worships Li Grande Zombi, a voodoo snake god.

Meanwhile, Brody suspects the serial killer has cast a voodoo curse on him to keep him from accomplishing his mission by inducing in him ghastly hallucinations. Brody must separate fact from fiction to arrive at the shocking truth.

Will Brody find Tyler in time to save Tyler’s life? Or will Brody become another victim of the serial killer?

ELECTRIC GREEN MAMBAS by award-winning author Bryan Cassiday will be released on November 22, 2021. Available for preorder now at Amazon.

To Live and Die in LA review

A brilliant neo-noir film directed by William Friedkin, To Live and Die in LA is right up there with the best of his works, including The French Connection, Sorcerer, and The Exorcist. The script by Gerald Petievich, who wrote the novel, and Friedkin crackles with cynical wit as the cops use and double-cross the criminals, and the criminals return the favor to further their own ends. The action and manic energy of the film never flag, aided by Wang Chung’s propulsive score.

As is noir’s wont, To Live and Die in LA has a fatalistic ending with all of the characters trapped in their own predetermined nightmarish lives with no hope of escape, as if they are driving the wrong way on a one-way freeway ramp, a scene well depicted in the film.
