Fire & Flesh Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Fire & Flesh

When an Asian/Indian largely forgotten Serpent God finds a home in Harry Shakir's abdomen, coiled around his spine, going from brain to penis, the 'family unit' finds itself self-sufficient in all things, including sex. However, it longs to join with its brother serpent, and in a wild effort to find and join with the Shakar, it must feed on humans to learn of its brother's whereabouts. It SMOKES people as people smoke camels! Literally causing spontaneous human combustion in the process. When the creature learns that its brother is somewhere in America, it tracks him down to Miami and the Keys during a heatwave, but its brother, sensing its approach and wanting nothing to do with it foils its ability to join with him by committing suicide. Still, if the body is not mutilated as in cut into salami-sized pieces and buried in different locations, the Kundalini Serpent God can still join with the dead man's serpent. The dead man has to convince his lovely young assistant, and she must convince her cop boyfriend that his body must be destroyed in ritual fashion.
