About the Book:

Argumentative, addicted to vodka and swear words, Chainsaw Jane is to psychics what Sherlock Holmes is to detectives —brilliant yet hard to control. But when it comes to unbreakable police cases, she’s the one to consult. And that’s what two NYPD detectives do when widow Dorothea Sishy disappears. With Jane’s help, the police discover Dorothea’s severed torso in the middle of Central Park Lake, and begin investigating the long list of Dorothea’s lovers who are now suspects. The case becomes personal when Jane’s best friend, Cruz, goes missing. Jane soon realizes that one, there is a link between Cruz’ disappearance and Dorothea’s murder and two, if something is not done fast, Jane’s friend could be butchered as well. The clock is ticking.
