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.
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.
The first two books dealt with Detective Bobbie Gentry who spent months recovering from both the physical and mental damage that the Storyteller killer did to her. She had lost her will to live but wasn’t going to die before getting justice on the man who killed her family and ruined her life. She was helped by Nick Shade who is the son of a famed serial-killer. Nick is a serial killer hunter. He has taken several high-level killers out of the game in the past decade. He’s out to prove he’s nothing like his father. While working together to bring the Storyteller down, they developed a bond and Nick made Bobbie want to live again. Bobbie also found a way into Nick’s guarded heart and he has found himself starting to care. In a Deeper Grave, we see more of Nick’s father and his life as a serial-killer. Bobbie is on his radar now since he discovered she is Nicks weakness. A showdown between father and son is in the future and I believe Bobbie will be right in the middle of it.
“Do you know this guy?” Sergeant Holt asked her.
Detective Bobbie Gentry shook her head. “Never seen him before.”
“The killer left you a message on his back,” Bauer, Holt’s partner, explained.
Bobbie held his gaze for one endless moment before she made her way around the puddle of bodily fluids and cast off parts to view the victim’s back. The words written in what appeared to be red lipstick took a moment for her brain to assimilate.
Do I have your attention yet, Bobbie?
