Sgt. Jack Delaney and the “Doom Squad” hunt a serial killer,“The Twister”, whose victims are murdered in an unusual way.
Jim Malloy releases ‘The Twister: A Sgt. Delaney “Doom Squad” Novel’
SAN DIEGO – Jim Malloy announces his return to the publishing scene with the release of “The Twister: A Sgt. Delaney “Doom Squad” Novel” (published by Xlibris), the fourth of six novels in the “Doom Squad” series.
Dead women were popping up all over in a very strange way. They were left posed on their side, fully clothed, hands clasped in prayer, and legs bent as if kneeling. The weird part though, was their head was twisted clear around so they appeared to be looking backwards, which was impossible because their eyeballs were plucked out and stuffed in their mouths. At the same time, a stiff was found hanging in the park. A ritual sacrifice complete with incense, a dead dog, and weird cult scratching in the ground.
The special detective unit, dubbed the “Doom” squad, was stumped. The killer, described as a giant, should stick out like a sore thumb. And what the hell did three witches have to do with anything not counting a weird root called the “Mandrake”? And how the hell did the Bible legend of David slaying Goliath fit? Their leader, Sgt. Jack Delaney, “Micky” for short, was ticked off over the whole mess and wanted answers.
Malloy says, “My stories involve an actual method of killing that occurred that I build a fictional story around. My hard-boiled detective stories push the envelope to the worst in humanity”. When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, he answered, “An appreciation for good cop work with a twist and readers anxious to read the next novel”.

About the Author
Jim Malloy, a police captain and a hard-back big-city cop of 28 years, commanded two divisions and SWAT where he assigned and formed special teams of officers to solve various police 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 whose squad of seven top cops hunt serial killers like a pack of hounds on a bunny. Zero pity. For 25 years, Malloy owned Centurion Information Association (C.I.A.), a private investigative agency in San Diego where current cases provide fodder for more Delaney “Doom Squad” adventures.
