What happens when people who seem to have everything going for them suddenly turn to murder and suicide? How do your prove that these seemly random acts are tied together when your gut is screaming at you that they are but there is no forensics that can prove it? And how do you trust a broken FBI Agent seemly obsessed with a serial killer when everyone is telling you you can't but your heart is telling you that you should? These are the questions plaguing Atlanta's Deputy Chief of Detectives ...more

Dying to Play is a reissue from Debra Webb so it is a book that is new for those of us that missed it the first time around and for those who have already enjoyed it before a chance to get it with a beautiful new cover.
The Gamekeeper, who is the the bad guy in this book, is a timeless character who would fit as perfectly as a killer today as he did when this book was first published so I loved how this book did not feel like it was dated at all like some books that are brought back are. I also

One of Ms. Webb's best. This book is about a serial killer who uses the internet to play games and find potential victims. He is so good at what he does that no one can track him down. He keeps getting closer and closer to the detective who is tracking him and the man helping her. As they get closer and closer, the gamekeeper keeps getting closer and closer to them. Non-stop, action-packed, can't put the book down 'til it's finished book!

I once heard it said that there are only a limited number of plot lines available to write a romance story-that every romance book out there is a variation of one of these set "themes." I've read a lot of books that resemble each other in some ways, whether it be the type of characters in the story, the description of the villain, or the way the hero and heroine end up together. I'm happy to say, though, that it seems as if Ms. Webb never read the statement about all romances being alike-and if ...more

Dying to Play by Debra Webb I received a review copy of Dying to Play and this is an honest review of the book.

The first thing that absolutely thrilled me about Dying to Play is that the action was set in Atlanta, which is the closest big city to where I live. It is delightful to see such familiar places mentioned in the book.

I love the characters in this book. Elaine Jentzen is a younger, female Chief of Detectives. She carries a lot of responsibility for a woman her age, and a history of competing for recognition of h

Elaine Jentzen is the Deputy Chief of Detectives for Atlanta Police Department. She has got some personal issues going on in her life but that will have to wait while she tries to figure out why people who have the “perfect” lives are suddenly killing people without and with motives. Trace Callahan, Special Agent with the FBI seems to think it is the ...more

The characters in this book are Elaine Jentzen and Trace Callahan. Elaine Jentzen is the youngest Deputy Chief of Detectives of the Homicide Division in the Atlanta Police Department's history. She has work very hard to get where she is and there isn’t any time for romance. In fact, she doesn’t have a life outside of her job.

This is the first book by Debra Webb that I've read and it won't be my last! This was a great psychological thriller with a creepy killer with sick game. It kept me guessing the whole way. I really enjoyed the characters and hope maybe they'll be brought back again!
