Natalie Drummond needs help. Since suffering a brain injury, there are gaps in her short term memory. Still, she insists someone is watching her. She hears and sees things, sights and sounds which she can not explain. Her doctor says these apparitions may only be flashbacks, but she isn’t so sure. Thus begins Debra Webb’s thrilling new novel, Dark Whispers. 



After three detective firms turn down her case, Natalie stumbles upon B&C Investigations. She tells them what she does remember, that someone was trying to break into her Birmingham mansion, so she instinctively reached for her late father’s gun and shot the perpetrator. However, neither the body nor the gun can be found. Is someone cruelly playing upon her fragile mental state in order to cover their tracks?

The agency assigns former homicide detective Clint Hayes to the case. It will be up to him to follow the clues no matter where they lead. But uncovering the truth is only part of the job. He must also protect his new client and try hard not to fall in love with her in the process.

As the first book in Webb’s spin-off to her beloved Colby Agency franchise, Dark Whispers is a gripping and fast-paced introduction to her new Faces of Evil series. Although this is somewhat new territory for Webb, all the elements that have made her other books so popular are still her.

First, the author’s ear for dialogue and gift for characterization are ever present, and fans will welcome her quirky, charming cast as they assist in the investigation. Readers may also find themselves cheering on Clint and Natalie as they navigate through the tricky waters surrounding their potential romance.

Most of all, and perhaps most important, this is a well crafted story that lingers in the mind long after the last page is turned. If you love a puzzling tale that wreaks havoc with your sanity, you won’t want to miss this fun and entertaining read.
