About the Author


Jim Malloy, a Police Captain of twenty-eight years, commanded two divisions and SWAT where he handpicked strike teams to solve various crime problems. It was during this time that his future novels started percolating and taking shape.

After graduating from the FBI academy where he studied criminal profiling and serial murders, he created the infamous “Doom Squad” led by Sgt. Jack Delaney.

Delaney’s squad of seven top cops hunt serial killers like a pack of wolves on a Stag. Zero pity.

Each novel involves an actual method of a murder that he wraps in fiction.

Malloy currently owns Centurion Information Association (CIA), a private investigative agency in San Diego where current cases provide fodder for more “Doom Squad” adventures.

“Snake Bite” is the fifth novel in the Sgt. Delaney series.


Jim lived and sailed on the H.M.S. Dolphin, a 76 ft. square rigged barquentine. She flew eleven sails on three masts and bore four deck cannons, two stern swivel guns, and a bow chaser. She is a scaled replica of the original Dolphin under the command of Capt. Wallice who discovered Tahiti before Capt. Cook.

Jim sailed throughout the Bahamas, Indies, Jamaica, Mexico, Central America, and Panama.

It was during this time, his novel, Raptor’s Revenge, was imagined.
