Debra Webb has fascinated me yet again with her depiction of small time life in Alabama. Jess, the main character and police extraordinaire, is someone to look up to. As a reader you never know what she’ll do next. Her relationship with her boss and child sweetheart, Dan, sizzles up the pages. I’m waiting for the two of them to explode. The addition of a long-time friend, and teacher, adds color to this storyline. I love older characters in books. Add in several other interesting characters and you have an intriguing story of love and revenge. Without giving anything away, let me say that Debra Webb transitions from book to book flawlessly, better than any author I’ve read thus far. I always want to stay up late into the night to start…um, finish the next one. So I will! On to book six- Ruthless.
The desire for revenge can never be sated . . .
When her beloved high school teacher appears on her doorstep, Deputy Chief Jess Harris is flooded with fond memories-until the woman says she's about to be charged with murder. Called to the scene of the crime, Jess learns the victim of the bizarre and brutal slaying was a member of Birmingham's famed "Five."
Twelve years ago, the Five were rich, popular high school seniors who threw one wild last party. Two social outcasts were invited to play in the "loser games." The next morning, one player killed himself. Now Jess fears that an invitation to an upcoming class reunion may have forced the Five to play a new deadly game. As Jess fights to keep her former teacher from suspicion-and her relationship with Chief Dan Burnett separate from her work life-she knows she is caught in a vicious cycle of vengeance. And the killer is far from finished . . .
