In Shades of Death we first meet Bobbie Gentry in the short prequel novella, The Blackest Crimson. Bobbie is a great detective and a wonderful wife and mother. Her life is close to perfect. Right until it isn’t anymore; until someone comes along and destroys everything Bobbie holds dear, and until all she wants to do is die.
In No Darker Place, the first main book of the Shades of Death series, Debra is on a path of revenge. She will not stop until she will punish the one person who took everything away from Bobbie. When Nick Shade enters her life and offers to help her, she doesn’t him involved. But soon, she realizes that two of the united against one common enemy can do much more than each of them separately.
The fact that there is a spark between them doesn’t make things easier for either of them.
The Longest Silence slightly departs from the story of Bobbie and Nick, focusing instead of the broken FBI agent Tony LeDoux, whom we previous met back when the whole team, including Bobbie, Nick, and Tony, were after the serial killer named The Storyteller, the same one that destroyed Bobbie’s life and that of Tony as well.
The series is a strong romantic-suspense thriller with quite a few tough and gory scenes that you will need the stomach to continue reading. Debra Webb is one of the best upcoming romantic suspense novelists of our 21st Century.
