“The twists and turns in this dark, taut drama make it both creepy and compelling.” —New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
A killer stole her voice. Now she’s ready to take it back. Don’t miss the chilling Shades of Death series from USA TODAY bestselling author Debra Webb.
Joanna Guthrie was free. She had been for eighteen years–or so she needed everyone to believe. What really happened during the longest fourteen days of her life, when she and two other women were held captive by the worst kind of serial killer, wasn’t something she could talk about. Not after what they had to do to survive.
But when more women go missing in an eerily similar manner, Jo knows her prolonged silence will only seal their fates. She’s finally ready to talk; she just needs someone to listen. FBI special agent Tony LeDoux can’t deny he finds Jo compelling–he’s just not sure he believes her story. But with the clock ticking, Jo will do anything to convince him, even if it means unearthing long-buried secrets that will land them squarely in the crosshairs of the killer…
“This psychological thriller is rife with tension that begins on page one and doesn’t let up. It’s a race against the clock that had me whispering to the pair of flawed, desperate protagonists, ‘Hurry,hurry.’ A gripping read.” —New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown
This was definitely a bit out of my comfort zone, but I’m glad I took the chance, because this book kept me reading from start to finish. Well, I mean, I ate and slept a little bit of course. But otherwise, just reading. All the pages. The Longest Silence is one of those standalones that continues a series, so you absolutely don’t have to read the first books to enjoy this one, you’ll just know more of a certain character’s backstory.
I appreciated the depth of the characters even not having the entire first part of the series in my brain index. With an increasing pace and suspenseful twists, The Longest Silence was not as predictable as you might expect from a crime thriller. Yes there were familiar elements, but Webb does a good job adding her own spin.
4 stars and a big thanks to TLC Book tours and the publisher for the review opportunity!
