Blood, Sex, Revenge and an Anti-Hero ‘to Die for’: Cinematic New Novel Shadow of the Drill Not for the Faint-Hearted


Hollywood may soon be knocking at Rhani D’Chae’s door. With her blistering new novel, ‘Shadow of the Drill’ , D’Chae is wowing readers with the book’s graphic violence, sex and searing depiction of a man on the brink of being lost forever to the dark side. Called the ‘Anne Rice’ of the thriller genre, D’Chae has created a character for the ages in the ‘Drill’… could the silver screen be next for this riveting anti-hero?


Tacoma, WA – It isn’t often that readers fall in love with a main character like the ‘Drill’. Ruthless, brutally violent and vengeful; he has the body of a weapon, the soul of a killer and the heart of a lion. But fall in love they have, and author Rhani D’Chae, who created ‘the Drill’, has the five-star reviews on Amazon to prove it.

With ‘Shadow of the Drill’, D’Chae has created a monster… literally. After an experience that would shake the foundations of anyone’s world view, Decker (‘the Drill’) vows revenge, and means it. Honing his body into a machine designed to maim, he seeks out those who wrong the innocent or vulnerable and exacts swift, violent justice.

“It’s certainly not intended for anyone who might be easily offended,” laughs D’Chae, who is proving that as an author, she has the chops to go the distance. “But where would the fun be in that? The book is more than just shocking though – it’s genuinely thrilling, and has an undercurrent of deep, true and abiding love – both familial and romantic.”


A brutal experience transforms an unproven young tough into a ruthless killing machine. For fifteen years he waited, building his body into an unstoppable weapon so that vengeance would be had through the strength of his will and the power of his hands.

On the bloodstained streets of a northwestern city the enforcer known as the Drill stalks his prey. Judge, jury, and executioner; he seeks out those who target the weak and the vulnerable, condemning them to the kind of justice that has made him a legend.

Shadow of the Drill has received dozens of glowing reviews since its release.

Calling D’Chae “the new Anne Rice of Murder and Mayhem”, Ronald G. Weightman writes: “Its a roller coaster ride that you will want to ride again and again. Cannot wait until the next book comes out and when somebody in Hollyweird gets their hands on this and makes Decker into the next bad boy sex symbol.”

Nadege Nicoll agrees: “You know you’re in trouble when you fall in love with a bad guy (character). And if you do while reading a book, then you know you’re reading a good story from a talented writer. I love Decker, and Rudy. They are brutal, violent, mixed up in some crazy stuff. But, they have a line between right and wrong. It’s just not the same as your average person, but it’s a line nonetheless! And one better not cross it.”

Comparing D’Chae to famous authors like Mickey Spillane and Jonathan Kellerman, Beem Weeks writes: “This is a revenge story told in vivid and graphic detail. D’Chae’s mastery in the art of storytelling is on full display. At first it’s likely you’ll not like the character Decker. He’s not too far from being a thug himself. But over the course of the story, the author draws the reader in and, soon enough, you find yourself rooting for him. It’s what great writers do. Stories like this are usually told by men. But trust me when I say Rhani D’Chae gets it right. An entertaining read!”

Boasting several five-star-ratings on Amazon, ‘Shadow of the Drill: Born of Circumstance, Bred for Revenge’ is available now:
