Book Review – “Power” by Debra Webb (Faces of Evil Series #3)

power  Title:  Power

Author:  Debra Webb

Series:  Faces of Evil Series #3

Publisher:  Hachette Group

 

 

Synopsis (from bn.com):

Agent Jess Harris is back in another thrilling installment of Debra Webb’s Faces of Evil series.

Jess is ready to start the next chapter in her life as the new deputy chief of Birmingham’s major crimes division. But with her first love, Chief of Police Dan Burnett, acting as her new boss, it looks like Jess won’t be able to put the past behind her that easily.

Jess has decided to focus all of her attention on work when a celebrated ballet instructor is found dead by one of her students. Though Jess’s instincts tell her otherwise, the death is ruled an accident, and the case is assigned to another division. Still, Jess can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to the story, and her investigation leads her into the worlds of Birmingham’s gang culture and its powerful elite.

Now Jess’s investigation has dug a little too deep, and there’s a target painted on her own forehead. Will she be able to solve the crime before her own life is in jeopardy?

My thoughts:  This is the third book the Faces of Evil series that I am so glad I accidentally ran into at Barnes & Noble.   As I have said before, I love the main characters and supporting characters in this series.  They are strong and independent, yet work together as a great team in solving the mysteries.

This is the first book in the series that doesn’t have the subplot of The Player, the serial killer, that Jess is trying to catch.  Without this I did find this particular book a bit weaker and less engaging than the others, however I will definitely continue with #4!

And remember,

Books Are Life,

Heather
