The Faces of Evil Series: 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 . . .

Webb's first Faces of Evil romantic suspense novel introduces Jess Harris, a veteran FBI agent whose career is in jeopardy because of her mistakes in apprehending a serial killer. She welcomes an opportunity to investigate the disappearance of four young women in partnership with her former lover, Daniel Burnett, chief of police in Birmingham, Ala. Despite negative publicity over Jess's past failures and the case's slow progress, Jess and Dan work diligently with his investigators to comb through cell phone and computer records and connect the disappearances. The stakes are raised when another young woman vanishes. Interspersed with fine-tuned suspense is the undeniable attraction between Dan and Jess despite their long separation by time, distance, and other relationships. The mutual attraction is as gripping as Jess's determination to transcend the danger she faces and excel at her job. The cliffhanger conclusion will leave readers eagerly anticipating future installments. (Mar.)
