Similar to the book’s protagonist, Kriss is also a mentalist and a magician, according to He utilized these skills to develop his characters and write from the Nazi perspective.

“As a journalist, you probe the minds of others with your questions and, even before you formulate those questions, you try to think like the person you’re interviewing to determine what might unlock the information you’re seeking,” Kriss said during a 2014 interview with “As a novelist, you’re continually entering the minds of your characters to make them real. Also, you certainly try to enter the minds of your readers when crafting various parts of a book to ‘see’ how they might react.”

Booksy Galore is the first stop of Kriss’s book tour for “The Zodiac Deception,” according to a press release.

Kriss is working on “The Houdini Killer,” a prequel to “The Zodiac Deception.”
