Max McCoy is an award-winning novelist. His books include four original Indiana Jones adventures, licensed by LucasFilm and published by Random House, and he wrote the novelization of Steven Spielberg's epic miniseries, Into the West.
He's also the author of the Ophelia Wylde series of paranormal mysteries. Of Grave Concern, the first novel in the series, was named a 2014 Kansas notable book by the State Library of Kansas. McCoy has won three Spur awards from the Western Writers of America for best novel, most recently in 2011, for Damnation Road. Hellfire Canyon, another Spur winner, was also named a Kansas Notable Book.
The Moon Pool is a techno thriller set against the background of cave diving, which Publishers Weekly called an “intelligent thriller… tightly drawn characters, a vile villain and a satisfying, thought-provoking conclusion make this a compelling read.”
Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Sphinx invites readers to "enter a world of twisted danger, black magic and archaeological intrigue," said Publishers Weekly. "This time, the Princeton professor travels through the Orient, India and Egypt, circa 1934, in search of the Omega Book. Long buried under the Sphinx of Giza, it's an invaluable instrument of the occult that allows its owner to rewrite destiny. As usual, a band of villains closely trails Indy and his chums. Full of vivid subplots and ancient lore, the book reads like a rollicking history lesson."
McCoy is a native Kansan, and most of his books are set in Kansas or Missouri.
