Goodreads synopsis: 

A double homicide and a missing woman lead a detective to unearth disturbing secrets in this gripping thriller from USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb.


It’s the worst possible time for Detective Kerri Devlin to be involved in an all-consuming double-homicide case. She’s locked in a bitter struggle with her ex-husband and teenage daughter, and her reckless new partner is anything but trustworthy.


Still, she has a job to do: there’s a killer at large, and a pregnant woman has gone missing. Once Devlin and her partner get to work, they quickly unearth secrets involving Birmingham’s most esteemed citizens. Each new layer of the investigation brings Devlin closer to the killer and the missing woman, who starts looking more like a suspect than a victim.


But just as answers come into view, the case twists, expands, and slithers into Devlin’s personal life. There’s a much more sinister game at work, one she doesn’t even know she’s playing—and she must unravel the truth once and for all to stop the killer before she loses everything.

4.5 stars


This is the first book in the Devlin & Falco series by Debra Webb.


Definitely loving this new series by Debra Webb.


Kerri Devlin is going through a tough time with her daughter wanting to spend more time with her Dad, while the ex is also threatening to go for full custody. Then a double homicide falls into her lap. A man and his mother-in-law are found dead and suspects are few and far between. 


This was a great ride. It was hard to weed out who the real killer was even though that person had a POV chapter every so often thrust between the action of the detectives.  I thought this was a great building book and gave us great characterization as well as a setting that truly stood out. They whodunit was spot on as well.


Definitely dig into this series! 


If you love a good police procedural, detective fiction mystery, definitely check this one out.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
