Review: The Blackest Crimson by Debra Webb


The Blackest Crimson by Debra Webb

Shades of Death series (book 0.5)

MIRA Publishing (December 1, 2016)

60 pages



In The Blackest Crimson, Debra Webb starts off her newest series with a prequel novella full of suspense & evilness. It’s a high intensity read that gripped me from page one and has not let me go. What starts off as a lovely Christmas Eve at home with her family, Det. Bobbie Gentry’s life is soon taken to hell in the hands of a sought-after psychopath. Webb gets us inside Bobbie’s head as she is being held captive, from trying to remember details, having thoughts of her son, Jamie, which gives her a will to live and survive this monster’s torture, to trying to escape, to just wanting to die.  Debra Webb has created one bad-ass heroine in Det. Bobbie Gentry and I can’t wait for No Darker Place releasing in 2017.

Note:  I received an Advance Reader Copy from the author and am voluntarily reviewing it.


Detective Bobbie Gentry was psyched when she was offered the opportunity to work with the FBI on a special task force in the search for a heinous serial killer known as the Storyteller. What she didn’t expect was for the serial killer to follow her home on Christmas Eve… The Storyteller couldn’t resist Bobbie no matter the risk. He murdered her husband and would have murdered her child but the little boy got away. Now Bobbie’s fight for survival might just be more than he bargained for… One of them must die.
