Ruthless by Debra Webb
Thirty odd years ago a child went missing on the night of the harvest moon. The little girl was never found. Each year for the next two decades a little girl around that same age went missing in Birmingham, Alabama, on that same night. None of the children were ever found. The police and the FBI were stumped. No clues were left behind. No ransom demands. Nothing. The children seemed to vanish into thin air. Some folks said it was as if that big old harvest moon got so close to the earth that the man in the moon reached down and took a child so he wouldn’t have to be alone. The legend stuck and the unknown perpetrator became the Man in the Moon. Then suddenly, after twenty years, the abductions stopped. The Man in the Moon and all those little girls were just gone.
Thirteen years later, Deputy Chief Jess Harris receives a package from a sort of secret admirer. The package contains the remains of the last child taken by the Man in the Moon. Jess is determined to uncover the identity of the Man in the Moon and she intends to find those little girls so their families can finally have peace. Jess already has her hands full with Eric Spears, aka the Player, a serial killer obsessed with her. But now it looks as if Eric has friends…friends who are just as deadly and who want to play with Jess too.
The author discussed the series recently and admitted that the Faces of Evil continues to be a challenging series to write. Debra loves the characters. She feels that investment helps tremendously. Finding a way to move to the next level of evil in each book is the true challenge, she explained. “Going forward in measured increments while still keeping things interesting and chilling is easier said than done!But reader response makes it a lot easier.” Debra hopes readers will enjoy RUTHLESS, this sixth installment of the Faces of Evil, and will be looking forward to book seven, VICIOUS, coming on November 25! But first, look for the promised Christmas prequel, SILENCE,on November 1! Closing the year with yet the next level of evil, VILE is coming on December 26!
