Wings of Mayhem by Sue Coletta, the author of the psychological thriller and highly praised mystery, MARRED, takes you deep into the terrifying world of serial killers, murder, and mayhem.
Cat burglar Shawnee Daniels always believed her “fearlessness rules” mantra would keep her on top and out of jail. When she hacks into a confiscated hard drive at the Revere PD, she discovers a white-collar criminal stole almost a mil from his employee’s retirement fund. But when she breaks into his massive contemporary in Bear Clave Estates to recoup the funds, she discovers even more secrets, deadly secrets, secrets worth killing over.
Shawnee thinks she made it out clean until a deadly package arrives at her door soon after. He’s found her. When he taunts her through Skype, she knows he’s not going away. As an eagle glows on the dark screen, his demonic voice whispers how she stole his precious trophy box — and he wants it back!
The only problem is, she can’t find it. Did the box fall out of her backpack when she bolted from the house? Fear ripples across her skin, but outing her secret life isn’t an option.
When her “helpful” best friend, librarian Nadine Couture, convinces her to give into charismatic Detective Levaughn Samuels’ charm, her two worlds might collide. Ordinarily Shawnee keeps a firm line between her professions, but dating Levaughn might help her get this psycho off her tail.
In this lightning-fast-paced psychological thriller of secrets and lies, Shawnee juggles a serial stalker, dating the lead detective on the case, and tap dancing around her librarian best friend.
When a seasoned detective in her department investigates a string of burglaries — her burglaries — and the serial killer ups his game by framing her for murder, everyone looks suspicious.
Who can she trust?
If she doesn’t find the trophy box, the killer’s coming for her. If she doesn’t expose her secrets and lies, more will die. And if she does, she could lose her freedom and everyone she holds dear.
If you’re a fan of Lisa Jackson, Rachel Abbott, Karin Slaughter thrillers, crime fiction with an edge, or psychological thrillers, mystery, and suspense, then Wings of Mayhem is for you.
