Publisher Description

He’s known as the Storyteller—and all his tales end in merciless death.

Detective Bobbie Gentry’s hunt for a heinous serial killer is interrupted when the sadistic Storyteller finds her first. Captured on Christmas Eve and held in a cabin deep in the woods, she must survive for the sake of her family. Bobbie cannot leave her little boy orphaned and alone—and she craves the chance to avenge her husband’s murder. But not one of the Storyteller’s fourteen victims escaped his torturous game alive, and he’s obsessed with breaking Bobbie. From tattooing the story of her torture onto her back to violating her in every imaginable way, he’s determined to make her victim number fifteen.

In the depths of winter and the shadows of a rustic prison, Bobbie must make a choice to either end the torture with surrender, or fight like hell for survival.

Debra Webb’s new Shades of Death series is guaranteed to thrill fans. Don’t miss the page-turning prequel, The Blackest Crimson!

New Series by Debra Webb Master of Suspence

I received an ARC for my honest review!
This is the Prequel for the author's newest series Shades of Death. If the prequel is any indication, this series may be her best yet. I loved the Faces of Evil series. No one can do suspense like Debra Webb. That being said, this is off to a great start. I loved every single part of this and was wowed by it. It's amazing and now I just want my hands on the next (first) book, No Darker Place. I literally can not wait.
Definitely recommend!!!! Buy this for yourself and read it before No Darker Place comes out on Feb. 28th.

As soon as I open the first page, I couldn't put the book down. The prequel packed a punch and it just did not stop. I'm scared to read the next part but now I have to know what happens next. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it. The opinions and views on it are my own.

HOLY MOLY, this book is crazy good!

5 ***** out of 5 Stars for author Debra Webb's Blackest Crimson, the spine tingling, intense prequel to her new series, Shades of Death.

HOLY MOLY, this book is crazy good, it blew me away! Well written and compelling, this is truly a must read!

Although Debra Webb has written some fantastic thrillers, her Faces of Evil series being a great example, this book is that and more! Dark, intense with an undercurrent, a thread of something..... more!

This is the first book, an introduction to the series, the players, the story and the amazing characters, and it knocked the breath out of me!
I can't wait to read the next books in this series and see what dark corners Ms. Webb will have us peeking into, what twisting roads we will travel together and what dark emotions will be at play in each of us as this unique story unravels!

I tip my hat to you Debra Webb for a job well done!
