KILLER INSTINCT, the second Snake Jones adventure, goes to press in two weeks. It's been a long journey for this book but we're both very proud of it. In fact, we and our editor think it's better than DEATH ROLL. Wolves and the North Woods of Minnesota were the inspiration for the story. Michael volunteered at the International Wolf Center in Ely where some of the story is set at its fictional counterpart. And we absolutely love the cover!
Gary Shulze, co-owner of Once Upon A Crime Books in Minnesota, and a reviewer for Crimespree Magazine, wrote these wonderful comments which appear in this month's Crimespree:
"Killer Instinct is both a great entertainment and a compelling mystery, with a strong sense of place (fans of Kent Krueger take note) and really cool, interesting characters. Marilyn Victor and Michael Allan Mallory have seamlessly combined their voices into a well-tuned and expressive unison."
