Double Dare

“Double Dare blasts right out of the chute from the first page and the outdoor adventure never stops. Take note, adrenaline junkies!”
§ C.J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of The Highway and Breaking Point.

“A riveting novel of human endurance, greed and lust for revenge set in the magnificent San Juan wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. Double Dare is not only a fine mystery, it is a first-rate, not-to-be-put-down tale of adventure that will set your heart pounding.”
§ Margaret Coel, author of Killing Custer.

“Michael Madigan’s new novel, Double Dare, is driven by a strong sense of place. It has just the right mix of outdoor adventure, central character presence and quirky secondary players and sidekicks to make it a must-read.”
§ Robert Greer, author of the Los Angeles Times best-selling C.J. Floyd mystery series.

“Double Dare builds slowly to an explosive ending, where the characters not only battle with each other, but with a beast of a wildfire that Madigan’s prose brings to frightening life.”
