Maniacal Summary

Sleepy little North Bend just woke up.

The newly promoted Sergeant Jade Monroe, and her partner, Detective Jack Steele, have just been informed of an unidentified male body found at a local lake. The town is in an uproar. The victim was nearly decapitated, and murder simply doesn't happen in North Bend.

As more bodies turn up, the single connection between all of the victims becomes clear—it's Jade, herself.

With each new victim getting one step closer to Jade, time begins to tick away. She must find the person responsible before her loved ones, or herself, are targeted next.

I haven’t read a book in a long time, but this one hooked me almost instantly. I ended up reading it in three days. Almost to the end I figured out who the killer was. I very much enjoyed this book. Well done55


One tough lady5 star

I love Jade Monroe and all the characters in these series of books. I read the first one and was hooked. It’s a great read. The writing helps me wind down and forget the stress of my day. I can imagine being there and picture the places. C M Sutter is a great story teller.55

This first book had good flow, making it enjoyable and an easy read. The characters were clearly developed though not in depth... not even the heroine. This book was one that helped pass time without getting the reader bogged down in superfluous detail. My only real negative comment surrounds how after painstaking detective work, the two primary police people came to the same conclusion about the killer without any previous discussion. It appeared the murderer’s name just popped up out of nowhere. Thus, the ending seemed abrupt and not as well thought out as the previous 400+ pages. I found that disappointing.45


Excellent title5 star

Outstanding story,and the action never quits. I can’t wait to read Ms Sutter’s next novel.55


Maniacal is boring2 star

Uninteresting characters. Predictable plot. Too much useless detail about eating donuts and combing hair. Guess they Could have added bathroom breaks to really make it worse.25
