Her name is Ginger and she’s a sleek beauty. She’s being held for ransom and her owner, Johnny Mamba is frantic with worry. Owner? Ginger is a snake, a python to be exact, and the kidnappers want $10,000 for her return.
Jen “Hammerhead” Ounstead, creator of the infamous Cobra Clutch move, used to be Mamba’s wrestling tag-team partner. A bouncer now, he agrees to takes on the case, but this is definitely a one-off. Ounstead has no interest being in the PI business, like his father.
As he investigates the kidnapping (really should I say snake-napping?) a medical student becomes an unlikely sidekick to events. The X-Treme Canadian Championship Wrestling is the circuit of choice right now, but much more is going on behind the scenes. Some good fun by A.J. Devlin.
