The Longest Silence


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 a dangerous 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…

There Once Was a Child

Pre-order (Releases 04/09/18)
A sexual predator recently released from prison is missing…there’s
blood on the floor—but there are two blood types. Is he a victim of
revenge or has another of Nashville’s children gone missing?

Fanning stole and abused seventeen children. Recently released after
serving his time, now he’s gone missing. Detective Olivia Newhouse and
her partner, Walt Duncan, have a duty to do all within their power to
find him—just as they would for any other citizen. The first step is to
make a list of possible suspects and the logical names to start with are
Fanning’s victims. Those seventeen children are now adults and more
than one would like to see Joseph Fanning dead.

As Olivia and
Walt dig deeper into the case their own lives begin to unravel. The
fragile threads of discovery start to twist and tangle until nothing is
as it seems.

When the one victim who knows the whole truth is revealed, no one will be the same.

    What made you want to write your books? Was it something in your life or an author you loved? Just curious. Thank you

  5. Debra Webb was one of the first suspense authors I read when I first started reading romance. I started with her Harlequin books first. I know I will always enjoy her books. I, too, enjoy working on old houses, but we have been in our 1898 house for 25 years working on it and now it is time to start over with things like painting.. It was never done.

    Hi Deb, I just have to say that all your books are great reads. The Shades of Death series is so good that one night my husband didn't have anything to read so he picked one of your series that I had already read. To my amazement he enjoyed reading your books now he asks " are you finished with that book yet?" I want to see what happens next.
