Book Review for THE LONGEST SILENCE by Debra Webb

Shades of Death Series, Book 4
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A completely addictive read filled with psychological mind games and a time sensitive investigation that keeps you on the edge of your seat.


Wow. I mean…wow. THE LONGEST SILENCE is a dark and intense story centering around the abductions of girls who are then assaulted, starved, tortured, and forced to fight each other. Even with the complexity and the darkness of the story, the moments of honesty and heart give a much needed break to the macabre situation that the girls have been thrust into. The humanity depicted in girls, Joanna, Tony, and all those touched by this crime allow the reader to see that maybe there can be healing after all the pain.

Within this narrative, Webb managed to present pieces of the puzzle in front of us without giving it all away. The teasing the she does and the flashbacks that she gives her reader truly enticed me to keep going. Also, the psychological elements highlighted the eerie and sinister vibe the perpetrator had. I had serious chills while reading this book.

THE LONGEST SILENCE kept me reading way past my bedtime and it was worth every minute. I cannot wait to start to read the other books in the series as well as what is to come next.

About the Book:

A killer stole her voice. Now she's ready to take it back. Don't miss the chilling Shades of Death series from USA TODAY bestselling author Debra Webb.
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 the worst kind of 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...
