Chaos of Crime
by Dell Shannon
Publisher: William Morrow and Company, Inc.
Book Club Edition
If you've never before read one of Dell Shannon's unique mysteries, Chaos of Crime will show you why she has become one of America's best-loved and best-selling writers of crime fiction. If you're already a fan, suffice it to say that Dell Shannon is back, with one of her most gripping novels yet -- the thirty-sixth mystery featuring Luis Mendoza and the courageous men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department.
With a psychotic sex killer prowling the city, Mendoza and his colleagues are up against one of their grisliest cases ever. But crime shows many faces -- from "Jack the Stripper," the gas-station heister who ensures a getaway by taking his victim's clothing, to an escaped con holding his meek half brother prisoner in his own apartment. A deadly argument in a laundromat or a gorgeous sixteen-year-old redhead holding up liquor stores is all in a day's work.
But it's not all work. These policemen and policewomen are real people too, and Shannon gives us amusing and heartwarming glimpses of her characters' off-the-job hours. Amid a panorama of fear and evil, passion and indifference, we become deeply involved in the daily lives of the Los Angeles police as they work to stem the tide of urban Chaos of Crime.
