"BLACK VALLEY is . . . utterly terrifying. Ferociously creative, twisting and curving like a serpent, this story kept me awake and turning the pages until the very end."
Best-selling Author
Tess Gerritsen


"BLACK VALLEY is an incredible story – I'm still reeling."
Best-selling Author
Douglas Preston

"BLACK VALLEY has it all--an ingenious premise, engaging characters, masterful storytelling, and hair-raising scenes that chilled me to the marrow. Jim Brown is clearly a rising star in this new golden era of suspense fiction."
Best-selling Author
John Saul


"Terror runs amok in BLACK VALLEY – a Dean Koontz – style thriller pulsating with suspense, intrigue, and a twenty-year old vendetta that rises (literally) from the grave."
Best-selling Author
Katherine Neville


"A classic page-turner, BLACK VALLEY is an intense, intelligent, fast-paced, first-rate thriller. Jim Brown's new novel will grab you on page one and keep you up late into the night-making your imagination work overtime after the lights are out."
Best-selling Author
Joe Weber


"Brown heaps on one outrageous twist after another, yet there is no doubt he knows his way around a nail-biter. His many cliffhangers teeter just right, his tone strikes a convincing balance between ominous and terrifying, and many of his characters are just quirky enough to strike fleeting doubts about their sanity."

Dear Reader,

Hi there, my name is Jim Brown and I'm here with Chaplin (he's a rescue kitty), named after Charlie Chaplin. As I write this I’m thinking of two things:

1) This cat really needs to go on a diet. Seriously; I can barely lift my left hand. If you see typos on my website (or in my novels) you’ll know why. 

You see, you’re probably thinking that being a mystery/suspense/thriller author (published by Random House) is exciting and glamorous – and yeah, it is pretty cool, I get to travel, speak at events, and meet raving fans. But the sheer, honest-to-goodness truth is: most of the time I’m alone in this room, hands on the keyboard, lost in my own HEAD. (The good news is there’s plenty of space in there :)

So… when interesting things happen in my life (like finding out my BLACK VALLEY novel is being made into a feature film by a famous movie producer), or, I get some juicy insider gossip about something or somebody you might be interested in, I really want to share it. No . . . I need to share it.

I would tell the cat, but unless it involves the words: dinner, nap or ping-pong ball he doesn't care so much. So, for a limited time, I’m offering you three shameless bribes so you'll become a part of my community.

1. Join my mailing list today and you’ll get “The Capricorn Killer” an all-new, all-thrilling story absolutely FREE.

2. I'm going to put you in my next book. How would you like to be the hero, or the villain, or the victim? One of the people who signs up for my newsletter before my next novel is published will become a character in it.

3. You'll get occasional updates from me about cool things like my second book being made into a movie. Or juicy gossip about other famous writers like Stephen King and Dan Brown. Wow! Even the cat raised his head up at that.

So become a part of my community today by using the form below, and thanks again for stopping by.
