Wings of Mayhem by Sue Coletta #serial killer @SueColetta1


Shawnee Daniels — cybercrimes specialist by day, cat burglar by night — ignites the hellfire fury of a serial killer when she unknowingly steals his trophy box.


Cat burglar Shawnee Daniels always believed her “fearlessness rules” mantra would keep her on top and out of jail. When she hacks a confiscated hard drive at the Revere P.D., she focuses on a white-collar criminal accused of embezzlement. To teach him a lesson and recoup the funds she breaks into his massive contemporary in Bear Clave Estates. Jack has 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. As a glowing eagle taunts her Skype screen, Jack tells her she stole his precious trophy box — and he wants it back!


When her “helpful” best friend convinces her to date charismatic Detective Levaughn Samuels, her two worlds threaten to implode. 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 being stalked by a serial killer, dating the lead detective on the case, and tap dancing around her librarian best friend.

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.

Praise for Sue Coletta’s novels…

“The heart-stopping descriptions are so jarringly real that there are several scenes I will never forget.” ~ Eliza Cross, Award Winning Author

“Sue Coletta isn’t going to spare you the gory details or an honest look behind the crime scene tape. She’s a well versed author in all things crime who indelicately dumps you into the middle of a life which has been disrupted, disturbed, and marred by the evil acts of a solitary man.” ~ Beaux Cooper, Author and Amazon Reviewer

“Sue Coletta’s writing style is bold. It’s riveting.



This is a story that gets right under your skin and makes every nerve ending raise every hair on your body. I have read about some pretty scary serial killers but I think that The Creator, or Jack as he is known by work colleagues and the justice system, has to rank up there amongst the most horrific and memorable.

Shawnee Daniels has been ‘making a difference’ with a little justice of her own when the courts systems hands are tied and the bad guys are getting richer from unsuspecting victims. She had so far evaded discovery, as her normal quick thinking has always saved her. Shawnee has a regular job through the day but at night she is a bit of a Robin Hood cat burglar.  That is until she breaks into the wrong house and the cat burglar becomes the hunted mouse.

What a super story this is but be warned there are some very horrific scenes of violence and one especially heart breaking scene that has really stuck with me. I still aren’t sure of Shawnee, brilliant character, but just wanted to shake her at times to jolt her into what was happening round her. This is a story that takes you straight into the heart of things with an already well established killer, so the action is instinct, the tension is high and stopping reading is just impossible. Gripping entertainment.

I wish to thank the author for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly and fairly.
