Book Review: “Revenge” by Debra Webb (Faces of Evil Series #5)



Title:  Revenge

Author:  Debra Webb

Series:  Faces of Evil #5

Synopsis (from

When her beloved high school teacher appears on her doorstep, Deputy Chief Jess Harris is flooded with fond memories-until the woman says she’s about to be charged with murder. Called to the scene of the crime, Jess learns the victim of the bizarre and brutal slaying was a member of Birmingham’s famed “Five.”

Twelve years ago, the Five were rich, popular high school seniors who threw one wild last party. Two social outcasts were invited to play in the “loser games.” The next morning, one player killed himself. Now Jess fears that an invitation to an upcoming class reunion may have forced the Five to play a new deadly game. As Jess fights to keep her former teacher from suspicion-and her relationship with Chief Dan Burnett separate from her work life-she knows she is caught in a vicious cycle of vengeance. And the killer is far from finished . . .


My thoughts:  Deputy Chief Jess Harris and Chief Dan Burnett are back in another great installation in the Faces of Evil Series.  I absolutely love this series.  If you have ever read by blog reviews of the first 4 books in this series, you will know I fell upon it completely by accident years ago in a display in Barnes and Noble.  I am so glad I found this series.

The Faces of Evil books are a great, fast-paced mystery series although they are classified technically as “romantic fiction”. ,

I love the strong main characters, the intriguing storylines, the great serial killer plot that weaves its way throughout each book . . . and the ending of this book #5, well . . . let us just say, he’s baaaaaccccckkkkk . . . and I immediately jumped on Amazon to order #6, 7, 8, 0 (a little prequel novella), pre-ordered #9, and will be pre-ordering #10 soon!

After reading this latest ending . . . I must continue and know what is going on!  Soooooo good!

A great, fast-paced mystery series with strong characters, a bit of romance, a strong plot!

I definitely recommend this series . . . you won’t regret it.

And remember,

Books Are Life,
