It began with a teenager kissing his mother good-bye. It ended with the discovery of human bones in the Florida underbrush. Two Michigan teenagers were enjoying their dream vacation in Daytona Beach, Florida. Then, along came a spider and a snake.... Spider was a bone-thin loser. Snake was the real thing- pure evil and armed to the teeth. For the two teenagers, these madmen planned a night of lingering, inhuman terror.
Investigators were left with a twisting trail of clues and lies that led from the blazing Florida heat to the stark chill of a morgue. The frantic families of seventeen-year-old Jim Boucher and nineteen-year-old Daryl Barber were left with a living nightmare of false leads and fading hopes...until the whole shocking truth finally came out about the two innocent young men and two deadly predators who called themselves...The Snake and The Spider.
