From the author of Trust No One
They want revenge. They need each other.
Detective Bobbie Gentry has one objective: to stop the serial killer who robbed her of her husband, her child and her life. Nick Shade understands Bobbie's pain—and her desire for vengeance. He's on a mission of his own, and the murderer known as the Storyteller is next on his list. Nick knows that the best way to find his target is to stick close to Bobbie. But as she becomes more and more reckless in her attempts to lure the Storyteller out of hiding, he has to make a choice. Will he protect her from herself even if it means passing up the chance to take out one more monster? As for Bobbie, she's forced to decide just how much she can trust this stranger who knows so much about her. And both of them are about to learn whether or not two broken people can save each other.
Dark and Creepy
No Darker Place picks up several months after The Blackest Crimson left off. Bobbie Gentry has physically recovered from her injuries, but the emotional scars left by the Storyteller have only gotten more pronounced. The only thing she’s living for is the opportunity to exact her revenge. Her mission often overrides her common sense as she challenges the Storyteller to come and finish the job. Her actions have drawn the attention of hunter Nick Shade. Shade hunts serial killers and is after the Storyteller as well. This time his hunt is clouded by his emotions and desire to protect Bobbie from herself. Together these two flawed people will work together to bring down a monster and regain themselves in the process. This is Webb at her creepy, serial killer best. If you like creepy dark twisty novels this is definitely one for you.
If you haven’t read The Blackest Crimson start there. The novella sets the stage for Bobbie’s emotional state throughout this novel.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
NO DARKER PLACE
NO DARKER PLACE by Debra Webb, Shades of Death book 1
This story should come with a reminder to breath while reading. It is a gripping story of a serial killer. Only one has escaped, a cop, riding high on emotion, she wants him dead, if she dies also, so be it. He took every thing that mattered to her, so she feels her life has no meaning. I love her books, this new series, has even a greater depth to it, looking forward to the others in this series.
You won't want to put this down!
You will not want to put this book down. High intensity and suspenseful from page one through the end. This thriller will leave you breathless. It has a great villain filled with pure evilness. Detective Bobbie Gentry is an amazing, damaged character. She merely exists to kill the psychopath who tortured her 8 months ago. The mysterious Nick Shade is perfect in his role as a serial killer hunter. He tries to balance staying in the background, watching over Bobbie without becoming involved, encouraging her not to give up and to reclaim her life and trying to find the villain. The supporting characters are all interesting and play important roles to tell this story. The plot is filled with suspense and action. I was engrossed the entire book. Note: if you haven’t read the prequel – The Blackest Crimson-you really should-it’s terrifying good and explains what Bobbie went through.
