Los Angeles, CA
September 3, 2014, Award winning author Matthew J. Pallamary's latest supernatural thriller, "Eye of the Predator" will be released by Mystic Ink Publishing at the Southern California Writer's Conference in Los Angeles and will be available in print and e-book formats from booksellers worldwide. Pre-orders for the e-book are now available from iTunes and Smashwords.
Set in San Diego and in California's High Sierras, Pallamary's thriller tells the story of Erik Simpson, a brilliant young zoologist who has no memory of his life before the age of sixteen. Trained by his aging foster father, a world renowned zoologist, Erik astounds his colleagues with his insights into animal behavior.
As his thirtieth birthday approaches, Erik has a recurring dream of being hunted by a black jaguar. One night he dreams of the hunt, first as an observer, then as the jaguar itself on the prowl in California's High Sierras where he mauls campers in a savage frenzy.
His quest for the truth leads him into a murky world of magical plants and ancient shamanic rituals that ultimately bring him face to face with the enigmatic mystery of his past.
