Jim Miller, writing as J. Esker Miller, has five previous thrillers that cover diverse but exciting times. But it was Alaska, the northernmost fringe of civilization, that intrigued him most of all. After years of flying over the desolate landscape and hearing the stories of the people there, he imagined a remote island, a desolate, hostile place where evolution was free to create unique creatures.
And so, a single pair of shipwrecked Viking war dogs evolved into terrifying Apex Predators that ravaged the island unchallenged. Eventually, the breakup of Arctic ice floated a few of the beasts to the North Slope of Alaska. There, they faced the valiant townspeople of Chintikook Village. Along with a boyish paleontologist and the local schoolteacher, the humans teamed up to battle the attacking creatures they called Super Wolves.
It’s an adventure that pits the fangs and claws of giant devil dogs against the wits and bravery of a small group of townspeople who don’t know how to give up despite impossible odds.
Victor McCain, God’s bounty hunter, knows how to hunt down the world’s most evil beings and remove them. Permanently. In Revenge, the thrilling follow-up to The Speaker, Victor learns what it’s like to be the one targeted for death.
With a $10 million bounty on his head, assassins are finding their way to Louisville to try to collect on the contract of a lifetime, including Black Ice, the world’s top killer. But he is not alone.
An old foe has returned from the dead to seek revenge on Victor by destroying those he holds dear, including a new love. To save her and the others close to him, he must avoid the assassin’s bullet and the efforts of an angry cop intent on putting Victor away for life and unravel a trail of kidnapping, torture, and murder.
