I’m excited to announce that my thriller novel, Steadman’s Blind, has a new publisher, a new edition with a new cover, and an updated book trailer!
Steadman’s Blind is the book that introduced Chief Deputy Randall Steadman and his partner, Deputy Frost. The two have become a popular fixture in many of my stories and feature in a series of Steadman short mysteries, as well.
Steadman is one of my favorite characters to write about, and from the feedback I get from readers, I think they love him too!
What readers are saying…
“Just like Nocturne In Ashes, I found Steadman’s Blind a one session page-turner and gave it five Amazon stars.”
~ Ron Keeler, Read 4 Fun
“Ms. Chase’s second novel is just as unputdownable as the first one was. I got lost in the book and the world the author created, transported to another place and time.”
~ Gabi Rosetti (reader, Amazon.com)
“Author Joslyn Chase has now confirmed my first impressions of her being a formidable suspense writer bound to make readers sit up and take notice.”

And here’s more about the book…
Step into the world of Chief Randall Steadman, a masterful interrogator with the uncanny ability to read people’s thoughts and motives.
But when his skills fail him at the poker table, Steadman spirals into a series of unexpected events that will challenge everything he knows.
Watching his poker stake evaporate, Steadman hits rock bottom – until fate deals him a more devastating blow, sowing disaster and leaving an innocent girl in danger with a ruthless killer on the loose. Determined to make things right, Steadman embarks on a perilous journey with his untested partner, Detective Cory Frost.
Their quest for justice takes them down a treacherous path to the scene of a shocking triple homicide and pits them against a menacing volcano and a brutal crime ring.
Brimming with suspense, Steadman’s Blind will send you to the edge of your seat. Gripping and fast-paced, this explosive tale explores the limits of trust, the price of redemption, and the lengths one will go to protect the innocent.
If you like books by C.J. Box, Thomas Perry, and Jeffery Deaver, you’ve just found a new favorite in Steadman’s Blind!
Excerpt of interview with the author:
Jake: For those who’ve read the tie-in novel, Nocturne In Ashes, you say they’ll now get “the rest of the story?” How does Steadman’s Blind relate to Nocturne In Ashes?
Joslyn: Nocturne In Ashes shares the same time and setting as Steadman’s Blind—during the devastating aftermath of Mt. Rainier’s eruption. In Nocturne, a series of murders occurs and Steadman and Frost are dispatched to the scene of the crime. When you read Nocturne, you see it takes them three days to arrive. When you read Steadman’s Blind, you find out why. This book is the story behind those three days. And so much more.
Jake: I get it. Intriguing idea. So, do the two stories ever come together?
Joslyn: The stories do intersect during a couple of chapters, so if you’ve read one book, you’ll get to see some of the scenes through another character’s eyes. I think that makes it more fun and interesting for the reader, getting those different perspectives.
Jake: And do you have to read one book to get the full impact of the other?
Joslyn: No, you don’t have to, but I highly recommend it. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s more fun reading them together!
