"Like 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, Valley of Bones)-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."

Back cover copy

Retired Miami Homicide Detective Jimmy Paz has put the darkness behind him. But now he, his wife, and their young daughter are being haunted by terrifying dreams. And when affluent Miami businessmen begin dying gruesomely in their fortress-like homes--with the footprints of a giant jungle cat found at the crime scenes--Paz has no choice but to get involved, because what he loves most may be the next thing devoured.

From the acclaimed author of Tropic of Night, Valley of Bones, The Book of Air and Shadows, and The Forgery of Venus comes the final book in his masterful Jimmy Paz series, hailed by the Washington Post as a "miracle of intelligent fiction . . . among the essential novels of recent years."
