Barnabas Tew and The Case of the Cursed Serpent by Columbkill Noonan – Book Review

Barnabas Tew and The Case of the Cursed Serpent by Columbkill Noonan – Book Review



“For Queen, for Country, and for….Uncle Rabbit?”

Just when Barnabas and Wilfred thought the world was safe at last, along comes a new threat: the Mayan Lords of Death have hatched a plan to overthrow the natural order of things, involving a cursed serpent god, two untrustworthy sets of twins, and a dead bunny that must be resuscitated at all costs.

Only Barnabas and Wilfred can possibly unravel the convoluted plot, but they face danger after danger as they attempt to do so. If they fail, up will be down and down will be up, and the evil Lords of Death will take over the heavens.

Do Barnabas and Wilfred have the courage, skill (and luck!) to save the world yet again?





Barnabas and Wilfred meet a paw handed, snake haired woman and wonder if they are hallucinating…..but no…it’s real….Odin recommended them as detectives..

Uncle Rabbit is dead, he needs to be resurrected to prevent the end of the world…

Will they be able to rouse Kukulkan so he can resurrect Uncle Rabbit and so save the world?

What follows is a wheeze, they travel to Chichen Itza, meet the monkey gods, Mr Monkey and Mr Spider, there are also bat-monsters, Mr Bat and pus curses in a romp in the vein of Jeeves and Wooster….just who is in charge?

Very clever writing and a lot of Mayan mythology in a fun filled thriller.
