Night of the Jaguar
[a Novel]Book - 2006
"L ike settling down with a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel--if it was rewritten by James M. Cain." --Denver Post Michael Gruber's Night of the Jaguar--like his earlier novels featuring Miami detective Jimmy Paz (Tropic of Night, ValleyofBones)--transforms the conventional thriller into something extraordinary, taking the crime novel to a place it has never gone before. Combining a grisly murder investigation with chilling supernatural elements and provocative thought, Night of the Jaguar is a bravura display of the originality and artistry that has won Gruber the title, "the Stephen King of crime fiction" while inspiring the Washington Post Book World to name the Jimmy Paz trilogy, "among the essential novels of recent years."
