In Wings of Mayhem by Sue Coletta, Shawnee Daniels lost her parents when she was young and spent some time living on the streets where she was taken in and trained to be a cat burglar. She uses her skills to steal from the corrupt who steal from unsuspecting victims. She can find her targets through her work with the police as an IT specialist. She lives with her best friend and her cats. As she searches through her latest mark Jack Delsin’s home, she discovers a secret so horrifying that she flees the house and spends the next few days in fear as she realizes that Jack knows who she is and is now threatening her loved ones. She has to navigate her life, making sure that her loved ones are safe while working hard with her lieutenant to apprehend The Creator before he strikes again.

Wings of Mayhem is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is not a book that you read to relax. It is filled with action and intrigue, conveying the frightening reality of stumbling across a serial killer who is very intelligent and relentlessly driven by grief and revenge. The themes explored in Sue Coletta’s series starter are interracial relationships, trust and deceit, and loss and how that shapes a person. I liked how Shawnee and Nay are total opposites and how that brings conflict and absolute loyalty to their friendship. What I liked most is that while Shawnee has a swearing vocabulary befitting her character she never once uses the Lord’s name in vain, which in my opinion says a lot about the author’s writing ethics.
