Nobody knew how and why Jane Dzhugashvili, a small and wrinkled Russian psychic, had landed in Noliar. Addicted to cigarettes, vodka, and curse words, she had firmly rooted herself into the old PA town like a stubborn old vine. When Dorothea Sishy disappears, two NYPD detectives turn to her for help, for when it comes to unbreakable police cases, Chainsaw Jane is the one to crack them. Reading her Tarot cards, Jane maintains that Dorothea's head will be found in Central Park North, her torso at the bottom of Central Park Lake, her legs in the East and West Village, and her arms somewhere in the Upper East and Upper West Side. What's more, Jane is adamant one of the widow's many lovers is responsible for butchering her body. The murder case gets too close to home when Cruz, Jane's best friend, also goes missing. It's evident there's a link between the events, and if something isn't done fast, Cruz will end up dead, too. The clock is ticking, and one of the detectives is about to make a fatal mistake. It's guaranteed readers will be gripped by the drama, captivated by the colorful cast of characters, and swept along with the plot as this compelling story unfolds. All in all, Chainsaw Jane by Marie-Jo Fortis is a thrilling, unpredictable, and nail-biting ride.

About the Author:

Marie-Jo Fortis is a native of the Basque Country. Love brought her the US and love gave her a daughter---and, recently, a talented son-in-law. She lives with Beckett the parrot, Chloe the cat, Colette and Simone de Beauvoir the bitches (she means, the dogs), and Pierre the husband. On the pro side, she founded Collages & Bricolages, an international literary mag which received accolades from the likes of Vaclav Havel, and which she kept editing for many years. As one reviewer put it, with FROM A TO ZOE, her new novel, she started a new literary genre, the literary chick lit mystery. She works very hard for you readers. So opinions and reviews are extremely important to her. Anything you say will be taken into consideration.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A gruesome murder is no match for a vodka-swilling Russian medium in Fortis’ debut mystery novel. “Chainsaw” Jane Dzhugashvili is a character in every sense of the word. “Small and wrinkled like a Russian bad seed,” Jane lives in the small town of Noliar, Pa., and has a proclivity for good Russian vodka, strong curse words and tarot cards. Despite her unconventional appearance and personality traits, Jane is also a medium who works with the NYPD. When New York City bookstore owner Dorothea Sishy goes missing, the police (led by Jane’s friend Julie) show up on Jane’s doorstep asking for help. Though Jane is distracted by the recent disappearance of her best friend, Cruz, she agrees to use her skills as a medium to deduce what happened to Dorothea. According to Jane and the cards, Dorothea has been the victim of a grisly murder, most likely at the hands of one of her many lovers. The cops also realize that something may link the murder and Cruz’s disappearance, meaning Cruz and even Jane are in serious danger. Julie enlists the help of her old friend Zoe and the two manage to pack up Jane and move her to New York City, where Jane continues to pursue the murder case in hopes of saving Cruz. The investigation carries on in both Noliar and New York City, leading to several suspenseful moments as Jane closes in on the killer. Fortis has a marvelous character in Chainsaw Jane, a complicated woman with a cryptic past. Jane’s voice, the result of countless cigarettes and an occasionally thick Russian accent, comes through loud and clear thanks to Fortis’ snappy, smart dialogue. Zoe, Julie and the various personalities of Noliar are a solid supporting cast who accept Jane, despite her eccentricities. The psychic’s abilities and her involvement in the crimes intrigue, and Fortis presents a mystery with elements of suspense, horror and humor. A simmering romantic entanglement who returns from Zoe’s past offers a nice secondary plotline. A thrilling mystery with an unlikely yet endearing heroine.
