A chilling new spin-off series from USA TODAY bestselling author Debra Webb sure to keep you up all night…
Former homicide detective Clint Hayes has his first client as a private investigator: a fragile beauty he isn't sure he can trust. An injury has left Natalie Drummond with gaps in her memory, and she sees and hears things that aren't there. But she's sure she shot an intruder in her Birmingham mansion. So where's the body, the gun, the evidence? When it's clear someone is trying to kill his vulnerable client, Clint appoints himself her protector, working overtime not to fall for her. But someone is dead set that Natalie never regains her memories—or makes new ones with Clint.
Not even a traumatic brain injury is enough to keep an attorney from pursuing evildoers in Webb's boilerplate contemporary romantic thriller set against the southern sensibilities of present-day Birmingham, Ala. The story launches the Faces of Evil: Private Eyes series, spun off of the previous Faces of Evil series, and brings back some familiar characters while introducing new players. Two years ago, Natalie Drummond suffered a fall that left her with lasting challenges. It's been a long road to recovery, but she thinks she's finally starting to break through. Then a man she thinks she's killed disappears along with her gun. Chance brings her to the doorstep of B&C Investigations in a last-ditch effort to find someone to help her identify her enemies and protect herself. Enter Clint Hayes, former police detective and newly minted investigator. One look at a suffering Natalie is all Clint needs in order to take her case and begin the process of unearthing a myriad of betrayals. Webb manages to sneak a few surprise revelations in around the somewhat predictable romantic suspense plot. An emphasis on characterization and continuity provides just enough leverage to create an interesting story.
