Author Biography

Mike Slavin lives an interesting life. He survived three helicopter crashes as the pilot, was tear-gassed in riots in South Korea, served as an Aide to a U.S. President, has played in the World Series of Poker Main Event three times, and continues to seek out other encounters out of the normal. These rich experiences inform his writing.

Slavin, a West Pointer and a former Army officer, was broke and bankrupt in 1992. Three years later, he was a self-made millionaire. His first book, One Million in the Bank: How To Make $1,000,000 With Your Own Business, Even If You Have No Money Or Experience, shares this experience with others and won seven awards. He has since sold his company to take personal care of his wife of almost forty years as she battles with Parkinson’s disease. The couple lives in Houston, and Kill Crime is the first book in the Jeff Case series.

Primed to Kill is the second book in the Kill Crime series by Mike Slavin. It follows Jeff Case, a former Green Beret and two-war veteran whose soul is scarred by pain, loss, and tragedy. Life is quiet at his house, a ranch outside Houston, but when the lives of a psychic friend, a child, and a cop are threatened, Case gets back into the game. The hunt for a serial killer morphs into a cat-and-mouse game that puts lives in danger across different cities: Houston, Boston, and Miami. Case and his team are not only dealing with one psychopath but with serial killers who won’t stop piling up the dead bodies. With few resources and the complexity of the case, can they put the killers out of business once and for all?

First, you’re going to love the characters in Primed to Kill. Second, you’re going to be enthralled by the twisted plot. And third, you’re going to be utterly hooked by the conflict. Fourth, you will love how the author ties these elements together. While there is so much to love in Primed to Kill, the author’s gift for character is the best element. I couldn’t take my eyes off the protagonist, a man who has his internal struggles and unique trauma to deal with and who is in the quest for answers to his own personal tragedy. Mike Slavin is a great storyteller whose novel will entice readers who enjoy stories with vigilante themes, sleuthing, and crime. This book is a page-turner with fully drawn characters that readers can’t stop following.
