Review: A Deeper Grave

A Deeper Grave (Shades of Death #2)


When the hunter becomes the hunted…

Serial-killer hunter Nick Shade built his legendary career chasing monsters—sadistic criminals with a gruesome thirst for death. When he rescued Montgomery detective Bobbie Gentry from horrific captivity and helped her reclaim her life, he didn’t intend to be a hero. Or a target. But now a copycat murderer haunts him, and reuniting with Bobbie is his best chance at neutralizing the threat.

Bobbie can’t forget the nightmares of her trauma—or the man who saved her. Working with Nick to outmaneuver the person behind a deadly vendetta feeds her hope that there’s more to her world than ghosts and destruction. Maybe joining Nick’s search for a killer is about gratitude. Maybe, it’s nothing more than cold revenge. But the only way they can protect themselves is to trust each other.

Rating: 4-stars


A Deeper Grave by Debra Webb is full of suspense and danger. So many risks are involved especially where detective Bobbie and Nick are concerned. They has this connection but Nick keeps himself away unless the serial killers make a threat against Bobbie. Nick has his own demons to work through and it’s obvious that still is not going to happen in this second part in the series. Bobbie has faced her demons from book one. She still misses Nick but knows until he faces his own and moves past them, then neither one has a future with each other. Bobbie doesn’t push Nick. She figures he’ll come back when he’s ready.

In this particular read, the pages are action-packed. Crime fiction fans would be happy. Murder has occurred in the beginning and leads to a copycat serial killer. A young girl is missing and somehow the whole thing ties back to Nick and Bobbie. I enjoyed the intrigue. The guessing game of who and what and why. The plot was dark and edgy.

Normally, I would rave about Debra Webb’s books. But for some reason this series appears to contain minor themes that I don’t look for in a read. I usually stay away from such themes and yet, there presented in this book and the previous one. Which leaves me knowing all future books will contain said minor themes. I am not happy with it at all. Thus, the book rating is lowered. I should have be warned about such content popping up in this series. Since I wasn’t my money was already spent and it was too late. Other than that, the rest of the book was good.
