Editorial Reviews


"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. In "Wings of Mayhem," she gives us a "Silence of the Lambs" style yarn that takes us into not one, but two criminal minds: one a twisted psychopathic genius hell-bent on sending sickly cryptic messages through the flesh of his victims (the plot recalls the latest season of "The Following" starring Kevin Bacon, which gave new meaning to "twisted" while being something you could not look away from), the other being our protagonist, who moonlights from her day job (I won't rat that out here) as a cat-burglar who stumbles into the wrong crib, stealing the aforementioned serial killer's fetishized "precious." There is hell to pay for them both as a result.

The story spins ahead with escalating velocity and well-rendered literary layers, always leaving the reader pleading for more information while delivering just enough with exquisite timing, always nailing a clear and rationale dissection of what seemed in the moment like insanity or illogic. The craft of the writer is on display from page one, with intense pacing, deeply drawn characters and a matrix of plot elements that never lets you see the big picture as completely as you think you do, thus setting up an ending that demands you stick with it until the final, unexpected twist.

You think you get it, but you don't. And when you do, you're delighted that you didn't.

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." ~ Critically Acclaimed author, Larry Brooks

From the Author

I write what I love to read, what fascinates me and the things I fear the most. As a reader, I love to be kept in suspense while at the same time matching wits against the main character. Fast-paced, lots of action, endearing characters, and a vicarious experience I can't find anywhere else.

As such, I offer the same thrill-ride to you. I spend countless hours of research before I write one word. Read the acknowledgements in my books and you'll see it takes a village to create a world worth spending time in. Chatting with experts and living the scenes myself in order to feel my characters' terror, sadness, pain, is one of my favorite parts of the process. Forensics, criminal investigations, witnessing what happens to the body after death, and delving into the mind of serial killers is what intrigues me most. 

My focus, however, is always on you. I hope you'll enjoy reading my stories as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Because if it weren't for you, dear reader, I wouldn't get to live my dream. Thank you for your interest in my work. 

All books in Mayhems Series can stand alone, but if you prefer to read in order, they're numbered this way, with the crossover novellas at the half mark:


HACKED, Book 1.5
