A killer stole her voice. Now she's ready to take it back.
"The twists and turns in this dark, taut drama make it both creepy and compelling."
--New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
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...
I’ve read everything Ms. Webb has published and I’ve never read a book by her that I didn’t enjoy! This one is no exception.
The LONGEST SILENCE is the latest installment to the SHADES OF DEATH Series and it doesn’t disappoint. A taunt thriller that will keep you riveted until the end and will keep you thinking about it, long after the final page has been turned. In my estimation, this is the epitome of a great read!
If you’re like me and love a well-written, captivating read, then this is the book for you.
I’ve always said that Debra Webb is the QUEEN of Suspense and this story doesn’t prove me wrong. A five-star read for me and I highly recommend it!
