Wings of Mayhem
Book 1, Mayhem Series
Never steal a killer’s trophy box.
Shawnee Daniels — forensic hacker for the police by day, cat burglar by night — ignites the hellfire fury of a serial killer when she unknowingly steals his trophy box.
Described by readers as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS meets THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, WINGS OF MAYHEM is a whirlwind of heart-thumping, non-stop action that takes your breath away. Impossible to put down.
Shawnee Daniels breaks into the home of Jack Delsin, a white-collar criminal accused of embezzling money from his employees’ retirement fund. In Robin Hood-esque fashion, her intention is to return their hard-earned cash, but she stumbles across a shocking spectacle. Jack has secrets, evil secrets, secrets worth killing over.
A deadly game of cat-and-mouse torpedoes Shawnee’s life. Can she outrun the killer, prove she’s innocent of murder after Jack sets her up to take the fall, and protect those she loves before he strikes again?

“For someone not named Patterson, Harris or Lindsay, Sue Coletta has reinvented the serial killer genre without stepping over the tropes for which we flock to it. Sue Coletta is on a path. She earned her ticket into the crowded arena of dark thriller contenders with her previous novel MARRED, and in WINGS OF MAYHEM she announces her arrival with the wail of approaching sirens and the quiet horror of a blade swinging at your throat in the dark. Don’t miss this one. A star is born.” ~ Larry Brooks, Critically-Acclaimed Author of Bait & Switch
“Riveting and haunting! Sue Coletta’s page-turning crime fiction is deliciously nuanced with delectable horror and dark humor. Unique and compelling characters make a sumptuous and satisfying meal. Save room for a decadent dessert of plot twists.” ~ Jordan Dane, bestselling, critically-acclaimed author of the Ryker Townsend FBI Profiler series
“Sue Coletta is very descriptive and writes a masterful crime scene with just enough detail to make you cringe and feel like you’re standing over the scene. There’s even a little humor to break up the mayhem. WINGS OF MAYHEM is a gripping thriller that will keep you on the edge and wanting more.” ~ Books & Benches
