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.

Note: All Detective Jade Monroe books are standalone stories, but since characters carry over, they are best read in chronological order.

  • A cops book,

    By Cmdr. 12
    This is a great thriller book about murder and how cops work so hard to catch the perp. As a retired cop really could relate to this book.
  • Merely ok.

    By Jefftrue
    Sophomoric, with bland uninspired dialog in need of firm-handed editing and drab uninteresting characterizations, the plot drags on without real tension or narrative energy.
  • Remarkable Debut

    By Mel'sDad
    While slow and stilted in the early pages, Maniacal ramps up and delivers on its title, providing readers with an insightful cast of characters, a fiendish plot and suitably surprising ending. This was my first read from Ms. C.M. and won't be my last.

    Good read! Strong Suspense and likable characters. Crisp dialogue keeps it moving along.
  • My new favorite author if you love J D Robb's Eve Dallas series

    By NanaJNurse
    Best new writer as JD Robb who I have every single Eve Dallas thriller cop series written. Although they cost me 2-3 times the cost of C M Sutter's Jade Monroe series. I was hooked from the first book of the second Jade Monroe FBI series and immediately preordered book 2 of that series; which I have now downloaded but while waiting I went back to the first series with Maniacal with this author graciously had on iTunes for free I believe as was the first book of the FBI series. I have just finished reading book 2 Captive and it got 5 stars. I am online now purchasing 3,4 and 5 of that series. I am a voracious reader and hard to please after JD Robb and Ann Rules true crime books of which I have read all. This author is on par wth the ability with continuing the Jade Monroe series that can compare to Eve Dallas. 5 stars since this author has 7 books that I have purchased or obtained $4.99 or less on iTunes that's a bargain with this skill of writing
