A little bit more 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 the back cover:
The rainforests of Central America: Decades of research by pharmaceutical companies result in a drug capable of preventing many of the world’s deadliest diseases. What if it fell into the wrong hands?
Southern Arizona desert: Mexican illegal immigrants are disappearing – hundreds vanishing without a trace. When US Immigration Agent Jason Holt rescues a group of terrified immigrants from a ruthless human trafficker, he is unknowingly thrust into a chilling plot of biological terrorism. His only lead is Maria Escobar, a beautiful Mexican government agent conducting her own covert investigation. As decaying bodies begin to accumulate in the blistering Arizona desert, Holt and Maria find themselves in a race to prevent a madman from fulfilling his apocalyptic vision. If they fail, it means humanity’s extinction.
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!"

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."
