A little bit about the prize ...
While my first book, Devil's Moon, is a mystery, Kokopelli Harvest is a thriller. Think Clive Cussler (old school) or James Rollins.
Here's a draft of the back cover:
In the blistering heat of southern Arizona, Mexican illegal immigrants have been disappearing – hundreds vanishing without a trace. After Jason Holt, an agent of the newly formed Intelligence Office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, rescues a group of terrified immigrants from certain death, he becomes entwined in chilling plot of global domination. Holt races against time – and his life – as he struggles to unravel the sinewy thread leading to a ruthless killer determined to stop him at any cost. When one of the missing immigrants is found in the desert, dying from a horrible new disease, only by learning the shocking truth behind the abductions can Holt and his ICE team stop a madman.
Advanced Acclaim for Kokopelli Harvest
James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Black Order, says, "Matt Marine's KOKOPELLI HARVEST is ripped straight from the headlines, touching upon issues of illegal immigration and human trafficking. But at its heart, this debut is a taut and hell-bent adventure story. A blend of Michael Crichton's scientific terror and Tom Clancy's political intrigue, Matt Marine pulls off a thriller for the new age!"
The review copy is complete and edited. I just need to finalize the text, complete the book cover and publish! That process isn't easy, I hope to have it finished in the next few months.

Acclaim For Devil's Moon
James C. Mitchell, Shamus Award-nominated author of the forthcoming OUR LADY OF THE NORTH, says "Matt Marine has written a terrific thriller. A sexual psychopath draws a troubled FBI agent into a series of murders. The search for truth brings the agent horrifyingly close to his own worst nightmare… and it will keep readers on edge right up to the finish. Memorable characters and skillful plotting in some of Arizona's most intriguing settings."
J Carson Black, Author of The Shop, says Devil's Moon is "Fast-paced yet beautifully evocative, DEVIL'S MOON is a thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end."
