From the author of Trust No One
When the hunter becomes the hunted…
Serial-killer hunter Nick Shade built his legendary career chasing monsters—sadistic criminals with a gruesome thirst for death. When he rescued Montgomery detective Bobbie Gentry from horrific captivity and helped her reclaim her life, he didn’t intend to be a hero. Or a target. But now a copycat murderer haunts him, and reuniting with Bobbie is his best chance at neutralizing the threat.
Bobbie can’t forget the nightmares of her trauma—or the man who saved her. Working with Nick to outmaneuver the person behind a deadly vendetta feeds her hope that there’s more to her world than ghosts and destruction. Maybe joining Nick’s search for a killer is about gratitude. Maybe it’s nothing more than cold revenge. But the only way they can protect themselves is to trust each other.
The latest Debra Webb novel, A Deeper Grave, is not for the faint of heart. The suspense builds from the last novel and continues to grow and almost borders on horror. Webb clearly has an endgame with this series and it isn’t going to be easy getting there. Webb shows no mercy for established and new characters alike; this has been a hallmark of this series so far. I’m definitely hooked and can’t wait to see where the next book takes us.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
A DEEPER GRAVE
4 1/2 STARS!
With this continuation of her Shades of Death series, Debra Webb gathers us near and takes us along for the ride as we wind up knee deep in a nasty serial killer investigation again. Emotions are raw, the murder scenes are gruesome and no one is safe!
Montgomery, AL detective Bobbie Gentry has been through so much in the last year, and thanks to Nick Shade rescuing her and giving her a little peace again, she has been able to heal somewhat from her trauma. She will never forget ... she will never forgive ... but she feels a little more free than she has since this whole nightmare started. Just as she starts to relax a little, a new demon starts to haunt the town.
Nick Shade has his own past that he's running away from, but he now lives and breathes the completion of hunting down and helping capture serial killers. When he hears that Bobbie is in the middle of something again, it doesn't take him long to arrive in town and reach out to her. Neither one of them can deny the connection that grew between them during their time together ... and the healing she's done since then is just making it even more comfortable between them this time. Will their combined force be enough to stop yet another killer before he starts taking out people they care about ... including each other??
Wow! Dark, edge of your seat, addictive series
Debra Webb is one of those authors who always delivers a suspenseful thriller. Her books are very addicting and hard to put down. A Deeper Grave has Detective Bobbie Gentry finding hope again, to have a life, if not a normal life. She is Nick Shades weakness and he returns to Montgomery and Bobbie when she is faced with copycat murderer who is trying to get his attention. The fact that she has gained Nicks attention intrigues Nicks serial killer father. In this series, I have a sense of a buildup of a powerful finale. A well plotted story, fantastic lead characters as well as a variety of secondary characters tie it all together. The first 2 books in this series are The Blackest Crimson (prequel) and No Darker Place (book 1). This is a series that should be read in order
