Mayhem IV

Yeah, I know, website updates have been sparse lately. But…the e-book edition of Lost Homicidal Maniac (Answers to “Shirley”), the fourth Andrew Mayhem novel, is now available! Get it from Amazon and Smashwords for a mere $2.99!

Andrew Mayhem is back! In this dark and hilarious new adventure, Andrew has started up a private investigation business with his best friend Roger (slogan: “We Solve Weird Problems”). Since his options in life will become somewhat more limited after his wife Helen gives birth to triplets, it’s his last-ditch effort to get out of being stuck with a corporate day job.

One of their first clients is an attractive woman named Shirley. Keeping with the kind of luck Andrew has had his entire life, her problem is: “I think I may be a serial killer.”

Yeah, he takes the job. Even after she insists on being handcuffed to him while they investigate the house where she might have stored the bodies of her victims.

But Andrew discovers that this day has much more danger in store than being handcuffed to a woman who may or may not be a homicidal maniac. Because Mr. Burke, the sadistic villain of his last adventure, has been watching Andrew and plotting a truly ghastly revenge…and the attack begins now!

Packed with the trademark demented humor, wild action, and grisly horror, this is the novel that Andrew Mayhem fans have been threatening to stab the author if he doesn’t write.

Foreword by the lovely and talented JA Konrath.

    Run! Don’t walk!

    More Mayhem hilarity (and more maniacs!)

    And for the record, I NEVER threatened to stab you. There may have been some discussion about a chainsaw?

      You said “I’ll stab you with a chainsaw.” I thought it was kind of a silly thing to say, but I didn’t want to create an awkward moment by criticizing your threat.

    The Kindle link is now live!

    Which you won’t be for very long if you don’t get working on Mayhem V. Argh! Again! Awkward!

    I know this has been asked probably 17 times already, but when do expect the paperback to be out? I can’t wait to read it!


  4. Kyle L. Says:

    So I should have had this paperback in my hands 11 months ago? WTF JEFF!?


  5. Collin Burton Says:

    I’m quite happy about this book being out. The news was a wonderful end-of-year surprise in my inbox this morning. I’m even happier that I only found the other books last year, so my wait was nice and short. Now I’m spoiled though, so… we can expect number five around the same time next year, yes? Of course “yes.”


  6. Collin Burton Says:

    Wow! I had no idea how awesome Smashwords was. All of your books that I’ve bought, I purchased through Amazon, so I’m tied to the Kindle format. Now I see at Smashwords I can get pretty much every digital format I could want, including Kindle. I only wished I’d checked there before rushing to Amazon to buy the latest book :/

    Do you plan on expanding on the catalog you currently have available at Smashwords?

    Is there to be a collector’s edition Jeff? Signed/limited/lettered etc?
    I gots’ta know!!!


    • jeffstrand Says:

      Sorry, Steve…no plans for a collector’s edition of Mayhem IV. I could probably con somebody into publishing it, but I don’t think there’s that much interest in a pricey hardcover edition of the fourth book in a series. But when the paperback comes out, I will cheerfully sign a copy for you!
