A killer with nothing left to lose…
Afraid or not, Detective Bobbie Gentry has a monster to confront. The pain of losing her family and nearly her life to a criminal’s vile hunger is still fresh, but now the landscape is different. Now she’s not alone. Now she has Nick Shade to trust. Nick treats the terror of his past with vengeance. He’s dedicated his life to hunting serial killers, and he’d give his last breath to save Bobbie. When a string of killings bloodies Savannah’s elite society and causes cold cases to resurface, Bobbie is captured in a city more haunted than Nick’s inescapable nightmares. And as the murderer strikes close, Nick and Bobbie will need to become even closer if they’re going to survive.
“Everyone has secrets, Lieutenant. I have mine, you have yours. Some are just more shocking than others.” – Bobbie
You are immediately pulled into this story, wrapped up in suspense and intrigue. Fast paced with a great flow to the story. Each character is so well developed. Lots of secrets in this one with the main question of “why had Weller brought her here?” to be answered. So many twists and turns that you never see coming. I am so invested in the two main characters, Bobbie and Nick. They both share a driving need for justice. They are two broken people who have found something together. Another awesome suspenseful thriller from Debra Webb.
This is a series that should be read in order, starting with the prequel The Blackest Crimson.
