James Rollins Recommends:
Plain Jane: Brunettes Beware... a bestseller in both the Hard-Boiled Mysteries and Police Procedural genres.
Let's see why...
"Wickedly macabre and blisteringly paced, PLAIN JANE marks the debut of a thriller for the new millennium. Brash, funny, terrifying, and shocking, here is a story best enjoyed with all the lights on. Don't say I didn't warn you!"

Plain Jane: Brunettes Beware
A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal...
A city paralyzed by a serial killer stalking the night, taking a most gruesome trophy.
The only thing standing in the murderer's way is an F.B.I. profiler... recently released from a mental institution.
Plain Jane combines the swift pace of Patterson with the macabre of Harris.
"Remember to keep the lights on when reading one!"
More Praise for Plain Jane...
What a terrific ride Plain Jane is. I just can't put it down--I am ignoring my kids, my own writing, my emails. Thanks, Ms. West.
I normally stay away from serial killer type books but this one had me hooked from the first page. If you have to get up early in the morning, do not read this book--you will be useless from having stayed up all night reading since it's so engrossing, the characters engaging, the writing so seamless.
There is nothing PLAIN about Plain Jane.

"This book marks a first for me on two levels.
1.) The first a crime novel has kept my attention beyond a few pages.
2.) The first book I read in one day.
A perfect mix of suspense, romance and phenomenally developed characters. I heeded the warning of the reviewers preceding me, and chose a day that I wanted and was able to get lost in a story.
Cristyn West, you have spoiled me for other crime novels that I may read in the future, setting the bar quite high."

Anyone who enjoys mystery/thrillers such as James Patterson, Lee Child, and Patricia Cornwell will definitely love Plain Jane.
