Michael Gruber’s Night of the Jaguar—like his earlier novels featuring <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Miami detective Jimmy Paz (Tropic of Night, <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_placetype _w3a_st="on">Valley of <_st13a_placename _w3a_st="on">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.”<_o3a_p>

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a fantasy novel I read this book to the end but I can't say I enjoyed reading it. I purchased it since I thought it was a mystery novel but it ended up being a fantasy novel. The writing is excellent but the subject matter was very dark. The main character manages to turn himself into a jaguar and kills people by tearing them apart.
