5 Stars's for Debra Webb's "No Darker Place", a true thrill ride from start to finish! This book is a dark,suspenseful, physiological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and peeking into the dark corners of your room as you are reading it. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. A fast paced story that will have you flipping the pages well into the night. Detective Bobbie Gentry has been though hell, her life destroyed at the hands of a serial killer, The Storyteller. Now, the only thing that keeps her putting one foot in front of the other each day is the driving need for revenge. This book has a dark intensity. As the clock ticks, more lives are in danger from this mad man. His single minded determination to have Bobby back, to recapture the one that got away, drives him into a new level of depravity. Bobby decides that the only way to stop him, to end it once and for all, is to give him what he wants, herself. One of them will die and Bobbie is determined it will be him by her hand alone. Nick Shade, a self designated hunter of serial killers, has a dark hidden past of his own. He is a shadow, constantly moving and never getting close to anyone. He has been watching Bobbie and now has put The Storyteller at the top of his list. Will he be able to save Bobbie from herself and end The Storyteller's reign of terror? This book will take your breath away and have your heart pumping, and at the end it will leave you ready for more!
