Guest & Contest: Debra Webb


Disturbing echoes of a Charles Manson massacre disrupt a quiet Birmingham suburb…and a missing child is the only witness. Deputy Chief Jess Harris puts everything on the line when her key suspect is one of Birmingham’s finest. With a killer now focused on her, she must find the missing witness and the truth before it’s too late for them both.

About Debra: Born in Alabama, Debra Webb wrote her first story at age nine and her first romance at thirteen. It wasn’t until she spent three years working for the military behind the Iron Curtain—and a five-year stint with NASA—that she realized her true calling. A collision course between suspense and romance was set. Since then she has penned nearly 100 novels including her internationally bestselling Colby Agency series. Her debut romantic thriller series, Faces of Evil, propelled Debra to the top of the bestselling charts, including USA Today, for an unparalleled twenty-four weeks and garnered critical acclaim from reviewers and readers alike. Don’t miss a single installment of this fascinating and chilling series!


Top 5 Items Needed to Catch a Killer 

As you know, Jess carries her big black leather bag everywhere she goes. She would be lost without it! Inside that bag are a few things she uses to track down the heinous killers in her cases.

1. Glock 23 service pistol. (A good cop is always prepared.)
2. Eyeglasses. (Some aspects of being over forty are inconvenient.)
3. Cell phone. (Even the best has to call for backup occasionally.)
4. Pad and pencil. (Jess prefers the old fashioned way of taking notes.)
5. Bag of M&Ms. (She does her best work with a bag of chocolate as a sounding board.)

Here’s a little teaser from Rage:

The light was back.

It was real bright.

It hurt Devon’s eyes.

He was so hungry. The angel had given him a drink and some bites of sandwich last time the light came. But that was a long time ago.

His belly growled as the light got closer. He knew he should be scared but he was too tired.

He didn’t know how long he’d been in this dark place but it felt like a real long time.

His sister had probably quit looking for him by now. She was prob’ly sad.

He’d heard the kids crying again. Heard the yelling. Once when he woke up he thought he heard the blond lady cop talking but he prob’ly dreamed it.

The angel put the light down on the ground by Devon’s feet. He heard a tearing sound. More tape, he was pretty sure. He blinked. Tried so see but his eyes wouldn’t work good. The light made them hurt. More of that yucky tape was stuck to his face. This time over his eyes.

He didn’t like it but he couldn’t say anything with tape over his mouth too. He was pretty sure it wouldn’t matter anyway.

He felt his body moving. The angel was pulling at his arms. Dragging him. Where were they going? Was the angel taking him home?

Maybe he was going to heaven. Tears made his eyes sting. He didn’t want to go…he wanted his sister.

Devon went inside himself.

    Love suspense stories! And I really liked reading the five things needed to catch a killer. M&M’s would definitely help anything 🙂

    Nothing kinky here but I would want a pair of handcuffs.

    With respect to the series, I have a number of thoughts.

    The Faces of Evil series is excellent. If you like spectacular Romantic Suspense, this series is for you.

    One of the reasons that the series works so well is that Ms. Webb has managed to combine an action-packed plot with a character driven plot, not an easy feat.

    Jess and Dan are the main characters in all of the books. Given their past history, each book allows them to cautiously come to terms with their feelings for each other in a second chance at love while at the same time that they are dealing with murder and mayhem, including a serial killer.

    Jess is a kick-ass, independent heroine whose continual determination to do things her own way, even if they are outside Police protocol, drives Dan crazy. He is very protective of her and always has her back which is not easy since he is the Chief of Police.

    Another great aspect of the series is that Ms. Webb allows the reader to see the flaws of Jess and Dan as well as those other recurring characters. You feel invested in the characters with respect to their personal and professional lives.

    Each book in the series is a fast read because you become so caught up in it.

    There is a good reason that RT Magazine gave Rage 4 1/2 stars.

    I highly recommend Rage and the other books in the series. I guarantee that if you read Rage first, you will go back and read the earlier books.

    Thanks for the fun post and congrats to Debra on the new release! I’d also have to second wanting a large, highly trained police dog!

    My bag would contain some type of hand disinfectant just because you always need to be able to clean your hands 🙂

    I sure hope they are peanut butter M&M’s! I would also include duct tape–so many uses!
