Special Agent Jess Harris has spent more than a decade studying the many faces of evil. In her determination to stop a heinous serial killer, she broke the rules and it cost her everything. Now her career is in need of resuscitation and her love life is dead and buried. Jess jumps at the chance to escape her current reality and to advise on a case that has Birmingham, Alabama’s top cops stumped. The case forces Jess to confront all the reasons she put her hometown and her first love, Police Chief Dan Burnett, in her rearview mirror all those years ago.
When yet another young girl goes missing without a break in the case, Jess questions her skill as a profiler and an investigator. Then the unthinkable happens. A startling personal message reveals that the crazed serial killer whose case she blew has followed her to Birmingham, adding a chilling twist to an already desperate situation, and time is swiftly running out.
“Just when you think Debra Webb can’t get any better, she does. OBSESSION is her best work yet. This gritty, edge of your seat, white knuckle thriller is peopled with tough, credible characters and a brilliant plot that will keep you guessing until the very end. Move over Jack Reacher – Jess Harris is comin’ to town.” –Cindy Gerard, New York Times best-selling author, award winning author of the Black Ops, Inc. series
“With her extraordinary thriller, Obsession, Debra Webb joins the ranks of Stephen King (Misery) and Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs). This gifted author turns the search for missing persons into a novel that is chilling, unusual, and impossible to put down. –Peggy Webb, critically acclaimed author of The Tender Mercy of Roses, a literary thriller written as Anna Michaels
