Being in the limelight may have its advantages, but it can also have a serious downside… especially when someone turns a beautiful journalist into a scapegoat for murder in Debra Webb’s Still Waters, the second novel in her Faces of Evil series.



As an anchor, it is Amber Roberts’ job to report the news, not be at the center of it. However, someone close to her is determined to make her one of the most notorious figures in journalism. They have creatively and ingeniously left clues at crime scenes that point to her as a cold-blooded killer.

When Amber finally realizes that she is unable to prove her innocence on her own, she hires B&C Investigations to help. That’s when smoking hot bodyguard Sean Douglas arrives on the scene. He digs into the death of the man who made multiple deliveries to the station only to wind up stone cold dead.

But the case seems to produce more questions than answers. First, who is the deceased? And now that Amber is implicated in his death, can Sean protect her from the one person who wants to irrevocably destroy her life and simultaneously bring a screeching halt to her career?

With Still Waters, Webb once again proves that she is a truly gifted author who knows how to maximize suspense and create characters readers will fall for. She also showcases her keen insights into the dark recesses of the criminal mind to deliver an authentic story that seems ripped from today’s headlines which both resonates with us as readers and makes us root for Amber until the last page is turned. If you love suspense with a dash of romance, this is one story you won’t want to miss.
