Then in July, REVENGE (Book 5) will be released and RUTHLESS (Book 6) in August. The last three will be released in digital and paperback simultaneously!

Thanks to Marissa and the great folks at Grand Central Publishing, I have an amazing giveaway for one lucky visitor to this post - the first 4 books of the series (OBSESSION, IMPULSE, POWER and RAGE). Please see the end of the post for the guidelines.

The Faces of Evil series is a romantic suspense series featuring 42-year-old Deputy Chief Jess Harris, a former profiler for the FBI. After more than two decades away, Jess is back in Birmingham, Alabama, working with the only man who ever broke her heart, Chief of Police Dan Burnett. They work together to find a serial killer known as “The Player”. 

Webb once again delivers compelling characters and brilliant storytelling in the latest installment, RAGE:

    When Jess Harris moved back to her Alabama hometown, she thought she'd left her past behind her. But the blood bath the new Major Crimes deputy chief finds at a murder scene is beyond even the savagery of Eric Spears, the serial killer who now haunts Jess's life with terrifying text messages. Amid eerie echoes of the Charles Manson massacre, Jess investigates the dismemberment of a cop's wife while her baby lay sleeping down the hall.
    The discovery of two more headless victims makes Jess wonder if it's a gang-related slaying, a personal vendetta . . . or something else. And the sudden reappearance of her ex-husband makes her question her future with Chief of Police Dan Burnett. Now as the net widens to include a shocking suspect, Jess realizes that the identity of the killer may lie with an autistic eight-year-old boy.
    With inner-city tensions at an all-time high and the community calling for blood, Jess must race to save an innocent child-and prevent a final, horrifying act of rage...

Webb_Obsession_MMIn OBSESSION, Book 1: She thought she'd left the murders-and his obsession-behind . . .

    Special Agent Jess Harris has spent more than a decade studying the many faces of evil. In her determination to stop a serial killer, she broke the rules, and it cost her everything. With her career in need of resuscitation and her love life dead and buried, Jess jumps at a chance to advise on a case that has the top detectives of Birmingham, Alabama, stumped. But the case forces her to confront all the reasons she put her hometown-and her first love-in her rearview mirror. 

    Four young women have gone missing, and Police Chief Dan Burnett will do anything to find them before it's too late-even if it means asking for help from the woman who has spent a decade avoiding him. Jess agrees to lend a hand and welcomes the diversion of a new case, a new life to save to make up for the victims she's lost. But then the unthinkable happens: the crazed serial killer from her past follows Jess to Birmingham. The situation is becoming increasingly desperate-and time is swiftly running out . . .

In IMPULSE, Book 2: Her nightmare isn't over yet . . .

    The Player is a master in the art of torture and murder. No one had ever gotten close to capturing him until Special Agent Jess Harris targeted him with her relentless determination. Jess's actions may have cost her a job with the bureau, but the Player still wants his vengeance and he'll make Jess pay in ways she never imagined. The first victim is Jess's friend-and the killer won't stop there. With each new death Jess becomes more certain that the only way to stop the Player is to give him what he really wants: her.
    Chief of Police Dan Burnett is determined to give Jess her confidence and her life back. With an offer on the table, a position as deputy chief of a new division, can Jess risk staying in her hometown and putting those around her in more danger? Or will she walk away to protect everyone she loves-including Dan, who just may want her back in his arms? The stakes are high, and a single impulse will determine who survives the Player's final, deadly game . . . 

Webb_Power_MMIn POWER, Book 3: Agent Jess Harris is back in another thrilling installment of Debra Webb's Faces of Evil series.

    Jess is ready to start the next chapter in her life as the new deputy chief of Birmingham's major crimes division. But with her first love, Chief of Police Dan Burnett, acting as her new boss, it looks like Jess won't be able to put the past behind her that easily.
    Jess has decided to focus all of her attention on work when a celebrated ballet instructor is found dead by one of her students. Though Jess's instincts tell her otherwise, the death is ruled an accident, and the case is assigned to another division. Still, Jess can't shake the feeling that there's more to the story, and her investigation leads her into the worlds of Birmingham's gang culture and its powerful elite.
    Now Jess's investigation has dug a little too deep, and there's a target painted on her own forehead. Will she be able to solve the crime before her own life is in jeopardy?

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone is having a fun and sunny Saturday. When I find a new series I like, I tend to collect all the installments in it even if I can’t read them right away. How about you?


  1. Mason - Thanks for sharing this series with us. It sounds like a high-octane and action-packed suspense series. And I always think it's interesting when an author develops story arcs like that over the course of a few novels.

  2. Thanks so much for spreading the word about Debra's amazing series. The Faces of Evil books have a permanent home on my keeper shelf (and on my kindle). Like you I do tend to gather books in a series, even if I know I'll have to wait to read them. Then it's like a bonus holiday when I can sit back and enjoy the stories.

  3. 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.

  4. Great giveaway and a great series. I'm looking forward to reading them.

  5. The whole series is a great read. If you have not read the first three books I would highly recommend them as well as Rage on Tuesdays release. The books are suspense/mystery/crime/drama and romance what a great combination.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
