In the stunning conclusion to the #1 Bestselling Superhero series, Xander and his team must contend with the Jekyl-and-Hyde persona created by the genetic engineering done on him while searching for an escaped serial killer responsible for the deaths of many of their friends. On top of all of that, both the youth and disadvantaged of the town are being preyed upon, as the town of Coral Beach seems to be unraveling.
Can Xander contend with his own deteriorating condition and still keep the people of Coral Beach safe?
“The last book in the Coral Beach Casefiles, Chains, is a fitting end to the astonishing journey. LeDrew stayed loyal to the universe he created. He didn’t try to tie a neat little bow over the package to wrap up this series. True fans of the Black Womb will rejoice as the terror and suspense keep you wanting more, even after you’ve reached its brilliant conclusion.“
Paul Carberry, bestselling author of: Zombies on the Rock
“LeDrew’s work is horror that emerges from the urban fantasy tradition — the introduction of a fantastical element into a true-to-life, modern setting.”

“When I first read Black Womb I never expected to be so engrossed in its chilling tale of horror, and Xander’s troubled life as the Black Womb. I love how real the story is, in not having its hero leap over any conflict without any trouble. It was a great series and it is on my list on my top 10 book series’s, fighting for first place with Harry Potter.”
