Maniacal: A Detective Jade Monroe Crime Thriller Book 1

Dime reached into his pocket and felt the cold steel. He thumbed the release on the switchblade as he pulled it out. He reached from behind and, with a hand on Morris’s forehead and a quick, silent swipe, it was over. Dime breathed a deep sigh and shrugged. “Sorry, man, it wasn’t personal. I just needed the practice—it’s been a while. You’re a means to an end, I guess one would say.”


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.
