Killer Chameleon

by Chassie West

Harper Torch

Former D.C. cop Leigh Ann Warren is starting a new job and looking forward to a blissful wedded life. But someone is not willing to let her escape so easily -- a lethal adversary with a grudge who's determined to make Leigh Ann pay ... and keep paying.

What begins as a series of petty harassments quickly escalates into more serious crimes, as a stranger driven by hate and unburdened by conscience steals Leigh Ann's identity to threaten her extended family. And when her invisible enemy graduates to murder, Leigh Ann realizes that there's only one way to take back her life and stop the terror: She must beat a killer at her own twisted game.

Bark M for Murder

Now availalbe

Who let the dogs out?

Evildoers beware! In Bark M for Murder, four of mystery fiction’s top storytellers are setting the hounds on your trail – in an incomparable quartet of crime stories with a canine edge. Man’s (and woman’s) best friends take the lead in this phenomenal collection of tales tense and surprising, humorous and thrilling: New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance’s spellbinding saga of a scam-busting septuagenarian and her two golden retrievers; Anthony Award winner Virginia Lanier’s pureblood thriller featuring bloodhounds and bloody murder; Edgar® and Anthony nominee Chassie West’s suspenseful stunner about a life-saving German shepherd and a ghostly forgotten crime; and rising star Lee Charles Kelly’s edge-of-your-seat yarn that pits an ex-cop/kennel owner and a yappy toy poodle against a craven killer...

Bark M for Murder was a Mystery Guild Alternate Selection.

"Chassie West creates characters so warm, wonderful, and delightfully quirky they jump right off the page." Janet Evanovich

 

Those looking for cozier fare are well-advised to look more locally. Columbia-based Chassie West's series starring ex-D.C. cop Leigh Ann Warren has been showered with award nominations for good reason: The books are infused with warmth, lively characters you'd want to meet and an unhurried pace. The long-awaited fourth entry, Killer Chameleon (HarperTorch, 368 pages, $6.99), has all of those traits, as well as one of the most unhinged psychos in recent memory, whose goal is to stalk Leigh Ann, derail her wedding plans and destroy her life - and possibly kill her. West has stated in interviews that she finds plotting to be "as hard as pulling an impacted wisdom tooth" but there's no evidence of any difficulty here.
