Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane Doe lives in the shadows under an assumed name. A once-promising anthropologist and an expert on shamanism, everyone thinks she's dead. Or so she hopes.

Jimmy Paz is a Cuban-American police detective. Straddling two cultures, he understands things others cannot.

When the killings start — a series of ritualistic murders — all of Miami is terrified. Especially Jane. She knows the dark truth that Jimmy must desperately search to uncover. As their lives slowly interconnect, Jane and Paz are soon caught in a cataclysmic battle between good and an evil as unimaginable as it is terrifying...

Review:

"How readers categorize this book will depend on their acceptance or rejection of Gruber's underlying thesis: 'The point is, there's no supernatural. It's all part of the universe, although the universe is queerer than we suppose.'" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Monstrously entertaining." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This book has movie potential written all over it, which is no criticism of its depth — simply a compliment to its strong and colorful story line." Booklist

Synopsis:

One of the most frightening and imaginative novels of suspense to arrive in decades, Tropic of Night pits an anthropologist against a powerful shaman who becomes Miami's most feared serial killer.
