    Prime First Read July ‘20 A double homicide a missing wife in Birmingham Alabama is the first investigation for the newly created team of Devlin and Falco This leads them deep into the secrets of the city’s elite and the search for the truth becomes deeply personal fro Devlin This is a clever twisty conspiracy thriller which I enjoyed It’s a tad convoluted at times hence 4 not 5 stars but apart from that it’s a decent read I like the two main characters and they compliment each other well and I’ll definitely want to read featuring this duo

    Once the author moved on for the cheesy dialogue and introspection early in the book it got much better Detective Kerri Devlin and her brand new partner Detective Luke Falco of the Birmingham Alabama PD get themselves a double homicide in a posh neighbourhood Ben Abbott and his mother in law have been killed in their lavish home Ben’s pregnant wife Sela is missingThere is not much to go on Everyone they uestion is of the entitled class and seems to be holding back information And as soon as they find a person of interest with something to tell them that person ends up dead too It feels like someone is ‘cleaning up’ but who and why? Then it starts to get very personal for Devlin as friends and family are drawn into this web of conspiracy and cover up Sela Abbott is still missing but maybe she should be considered a suspect rather than a victim But make no assumptions in this twisty tale This book was good and convoluted and I enjoyed it a lot better in fact than some of Webb’s other books because there was no lame romance involved

    Exciting well written mystery thrillerI received this book free through First Reads formerly Kindle First Freuently there is nothing available through Kindle First which interests me However the description of this one sounded interesting and the title appealed to me When I was an Intelligence analyst Trust No One was a mantra with our unit It was number one followed closely by Admit nothing Deny everything and Everyone has secrets All of which seem to fit this novel and its characters very wellChapter one is the shocker the hook to pull readers in Chapter two begins ten days earlier It and chapter three are primarily police procedurals After that the main story line begins to combine police procedural with mystery and uite a bit of confused personal relationships and dark secrets Well before the 25% mark the reader learns a part of the mystery but without details so there are still mysteries and under currents to hold a reader's interestI have read reviews of this novel which complained of family and personal relationships to the investigation which are too unbelievable or too coincidental I would probably agree except that such things do happen particularly in the small world of the moneyed and social elites in a relatively small city I once had an investigation which directly or indirectly involved a number of people whom I had known all my life friends acuaintances my mother it began to seem that every time I turned over a leaf there was someone else I knew or was at least indirectly associated with A very strange experienceExciting and well written but too much family drama and angst I admit that I skimmed a lot of that More concentration on the mystery and police work and less detail of peripheral family relationships would have made this five stars in my opinionuite a lot of strong language adultery and sexual activity Fortunately most of that activity is not explicit

    I'm already a fan of Debra Webb love her Undertaker's Daughter series so I was excited to get an early look at her newest series involving detectives Devlin and Falco Set in Birmingham AL Trust No One revolves around a multiple murder case with connections to the city's powerful elite as well as having deep reaching tentacles into the past Devlin and Falco are an interesting partnership one straight laced and the other just emerging from years undercover but their personalities play well off of each other strengths to weaknesses and you know that they will make for good reading in the future There was just enough familiar introduction and past revelations so that we the readers could better know why the detectives reacted as they did in certain situations Yes this was and will be a good detective series one a I highly recommend and look forward to reading of in the future

    Well this book was certainly a pleasant surprise I’ve never read a Debra Webb book before so I didn’t know what to expect The book is billed as the double homicide of Daniel Webb and his mother in law and the disappearance of his pregnant wife Sela The investigation is led by harried Detective Kerri Devlin whose former partner and mentor has retired and now she’s been saddled with a new partner rebel Detective Luke Falco The pressure is great to solve this case and to make matters worse her manipulative ex husband wants custody of their thirteen year old daughter ToriThe suspects begin to pile up including a number of high profile local citizens who have many secrets to protect In addition her own niece Amelia goes missing and it seems she is attached to the case as well As the case intensifies Devlin must decide who to trust Will her new partner prove to be trustworthy? The first part of this book was a slow build mostly character building and there were a lot of characters so many that I had trouble keeping them straight at times Around the halfway mark it really picked up the pace and I was hooked up until the climatic end I will be checking out her backlist for sure Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book I gave it four stars

    In this book as in every city across America the wealthy and the politically connected get away with stuff that no one else could So unweaving the web of lies and coverups was the best part of this book Devlin and Falco are new partners but learn to work together well uite uickly Not all of the turns the case takes are believable as Devlin and her familyfriends is personally connected to too much of the case I grew bored with Devlin's angst about her teenage daughter she seemed irrational where her ex husband was concerned I have my own teenage daughters I don't want to read about someone else's bratty one The author tried to give Falco some mysterioussad backstory but it was vague and uninterestingI might have rated this a little higher had it not been for Devlin's actions at the end I find it hard to believe any honest detective would act as she did

    Another riveting page turner by the master Debra WebbI just finished last night and I’m still mulling it all over I have to say that one characters fate as left me feeling some kind of wayInteresting characters an extremely dark and twisted plot with so many bad guys Conspiracy political chicanery and murderso much murder And when pasts begin to be unearthed well let’s say the present is truly not what it seems All this while Detective Devlin deals with her daughter and maneuvering being divorced and a cop I always love this authors strong women characters Thanks so much for the opportunity to read early This author always takes me on a wild journey I’m looking forward to what’s next for Detectives Falco Devlin

    Boy what a collection of psychologically damaged and downright dangerous characters The only two worth saving for another go round are lead characters Birmingham Major Investigation Division detectives Kerri Devlin and her new partner Luke Falco And to be clear they've got their own background baggage plus Kerri is in the midst of fighting with her ex husband for the love and custody of their daughter so even they don't get a get out of jail free cardNeedless to say not all the characters make it past this book except Devlin and Falco this is after all the first book in what I presume will be a series Despite or maybe because of their flaws I dare you to mention any series character who doesn't have any I enjoyed my first meeting with them both and look forward to their next adventure This one begins in the middle sort of with what I'll call a fatal blunder on Devlin's part Backpedal to 10 days earlier when she reluctantly meets Falco who has a reputation for being incorrigible Her boss makes it clear she's stuck with him though at least for the time being They're called to a grisly murder scene where they find two bodies; a woman known to be living there is missing Turns out the dead man is filthy rich and from one of the most politically powerful families in Alabama As the investigation progresses with precious little to go on at first we meet Devlin's sister Diana her husband and daughter their mutual friend Jen and Devlin's daughter the latter a teenager who's caught up in her parents' divorce and is playing it for all it's worth We also see what's happening from the perspectives of other rich folks including the dead man's parents and other of the city's power players Not surprisingly at some point all become suspectsEventually the clues begin to form patterns that lead to the culprit's identity But as that happens and the bodies pile up Devlin and Falco encounter unexpected obstacles as well as information that could totally upend or maybe even end Devlin's own life All in all it's the beginning of a solid series and a great choice for an Prime Reads monthly offering

    Detective Kerri Devlin and her new partner Detective Falco are called on to investigate a double homicide A man and his mother in law were murdered in their home But where is the pregnant wife? Is she a victim or should she be a suspect?BOOK BLURB But just as answers come into view the case twists expands and slithers into Devlin’s personal life There’s a much sinister game at work one she doesn’t even know she’s playing—and she must unravel the truth once and for all to stop the killer before she loses everythingThis is a tightly woven plot surrounding well developed characters I really enjoyed how the personal is blended with the professional lives of the main characters The action starts on the first page and doesn't let up until the very end It held a suspenseful steady pace amid lies and secrets that make this a real page turnerMany thanks to the author Thomas Mercer Publishing Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction Read and reviewed voluntarily opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own

    Oh free reads occasionally I stumble across a gem but most of the time as in this case these books are clunkersThis was such a stereotypical detective book The story itself powerful men doing shady things and never getting caught because of their position in society; a woman spending years plotting incredibly elaborate revenge and apparently easily setting up the life she needs to enact that revenge; a detective who walked the fine line between cop and criminal and has a mysterious literally redacted past that he doesn't like to talk about and who refuses to follow the establishment rules; two detectives who don't give a damn about what their superiors tell them and pursue a case despite the potential personal ramifications was all pretty much one cliche after another And the writing itself was hackneyed the word damn was in every third sentenceAnd the fact that literally every single family member of the protagonist was just coincidentally involved in the case really?Two stars because I read the whole thing and while I had pretty much figured out the plot line I still wanted to see how everything would wrap up But oof my eyes sockets hurt from all the rolling around in there Here's an excerpt which I just found by literally opening the book to any page I didn't highlight this or bookmark the page I'm sure there are worse examples If you find this writing appealing or even ok then for sure you should read the book If it makes you roll your eyes right up out of your head then maybe look for a different potboilerShe told herself to stay out of personal territory But she couldn't do it He was right It was late It was was Sunday Well past time to go home and she was suddenly sick of rehashing the disjointed fragments they had raked together 'Why did you give everything up Falco?'He held her gaze for three seconds five seconds ten By the time he spoke she had decided he wasn't going to answer'Because I wasn't fit to be a part of it'Somehow this idea of selflessness got to her Made her want to know things Exhaustion was really playing with her tonight 'Why weren't you fit? Because your father abused you?''That was part of it' He closed his eyes for a moment before he opened them again 'I was undercover for a long time It was my thing I was really really good at it But I had to go deeper and deeper to get what we needed' He shrugged I ended up in too deep Drugs became a part of who I was I' He exhaled a big breath I became like them I lived I breathed I killed just like them'Surprise regret sympathy all seared through her so uickly her heart couldn't pound fast enough to catch up 'But you came through in the end' She was certain of it He wouldn't be sitting here otherwise 'Right?'
