Trust No One
A double homicide and a missing woman lead a detective to unearth disturbing secrets in this gripping thriller from USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb.It’s the worst possible time for Detective Kerri Devlin to be involved in an all-consuming double-homicide case. She’s locked in a bitter struggle with her ex-husband and teenage daughter, and her reckless new partner is anything but trustworthy.Still, she has a job to do: there’s a killer at large, and a pregnant woman has gone missing. Once Devlin and her partner get to work, they quickly unearth secrets involving Birmingham’s most esteemed citizens. Each new layer of the investigation brings Devlin closer to the killer and the missing woman, who starts looking more like a suspect than a victim.But just as answers come into view, the case twists, expands, and slithers into Devlin’s personal life. There’s a much more 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 everything.

    Exciting, well written mystery thrillerI received this book free through Amazon First Reads, formerly Kindle First. Frequently 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 Exciting, well written mystery thrillerI received this book free through Amazon First Reads, formerly Kindle First. Frequently 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 well.Chapter 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 quite 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 interest.I 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, acquaintances, 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 experience.Exciting 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 opinion.Quite a lot of strong language, adultery and sexual activity. Fortunately most of that activity is not explicit.

    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 quite quickly.

Not all of the turns the case takes are believable, as Devlin (and her family/friends) 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 mysterious/sad backstory, but it was vague and uninteresting.I 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.

    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.

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 more of in the future.

The book pulls you in from the very first, very dramatic scene where our female lead is in grave danger.

The book pulls you in from the very first, very dramatic scene where our female lead is in grave danger. The author wrote it brilliantly, from the tight perspective of the heroine as she is facing down a bad guy and even losing her grip on consciousness. Not an easy thing to convey well, that's for certain. This book had the fast pace that you want in a thriller, and there are bad guys, dangerous situations, and twists and turns aplenty to keep you turning the pages. Things are not always what they seem, making the ultimate figure-it-out scenes and subsequent answers true revelations at times. The only thing I didn't really like—and this may be just me—is the subplot about the ex-husband and daughter. I just like my detective stories and thrillers to be cleaner, "just-the-facts-ma'am." I don't necessarily want or need to know about the family dynamics of a detective unless it directly relates to the story, which I didn't feel like it did here. I also thought that the pace required for a thriller dragged when the story veered into the personal subplot. All in all, though, I found this book up quite a ride!I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.My book blog: https://www.readingfanaticreviews.com

    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 card.Needless to say, not all the char 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 card.Needless 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 suspects.Eventually, 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 Amazon Prime Reads monthly offering.

The thriller part comes in with the fast pace and the crimes that are committed against some of the most powerful and wealthy families in Birmingham, Alabama. I read several books at a time, but I have to say that this one was hard to put down. Kerri has a sub-plot involving her ex-husband and her rebellious teen daughter, so that made her life seem very realistic. The beginning is explosive and twists and turns around to bring you right back to where you started. Masterful plot! There were a lot of bad guys and I wasn’t convinced at times that the detectives would be able to solve the crime sprees and find the killers without getting hurt themselves. The case becomes real and personal to Kerri quickly, and Falco joins her in the quest to find the missing women before they are harmed. I loved this book! Best one yet by Debra Webb, and she really knows how to spin a good story. This one was so complex and well-written that I felt like I was actually in Birmingham and helping Kerri solve the crimes. Fans of mystery, suspense and thrillers will want to read this one and then maybe read it again to find the clues that they missed the first time.

As the detectives search for a killer and the missing wife they find the tangled leads can lead to danger that can come close to home and seem to lead in very high places making it hard to know who to trust. Great book! Honestly I read it in a couple days and didn't want to put it down. I think it is well written, has very likable characters and you definitely won't get bored or figure out the tangled web. Sad and maddening, caring and loving are all touched on emotions when reading this book. One of her best yet. I hope there will be more with Kerri and Falco. If this is your genre" you will want to read Trust No One. Thank you Debra Webb, NetGalley and Thomas and Mercer for this ARC this is my totally honest opinion of this book.

Then worked on there list and find more interesting things and Kerri found that some people where holding things back. The more she dug them more interesting things she found. But it didn't stop her and her partner was right beside her helping with the contacts he had. He was finding things out as well about this City of Birmingham secrets. This book was very intriguing and emotional also had twists in it that keeps you wondering what really happens to the last page.

This was a good one.I do have one complaint: there are a lot of characters, which were all important to the story. There were a couple times when it felt confusing and I had to stop and think about who was who. The plot was so good that I didn't think it deserved to lose any stars for the brief and infrequent confusion over the many players that make up the story.Really clever plot.

What a time to have her boss dump a high-profile double-homicide and missing pregnant woman case on their plate. Devlin and her partner, Falco know they need to act fast since the family of the deceased man and his missing wife are among the rich and powerful elite of Birmingham, AL. As they slowly work through clues in the case, Devlin and Falco unearth secrets from the past that could implicate members of several of the most prominent families in the city who will do anything to avoid being exposed. When the investigation comes a little too close to Kerri’s personal life, she will stop at nothing to keep her family and friends safe. The story was expertly plotted. The twists and turns and tangled web of lies kept me guessing right up to the shocking conclusion. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced and gripping book and highly recommend it.

She has an ex husband who is fighting her for custody of their teenage daughter, Tori, who isn't exactly making life easy for the moment for Kerri either. And she has a new partner, Detective Falco, who carries plenty of baggage of his own. Falco is all for bending or breaking the rules when he deems it necessary while Kerri pretty much goes by the book. Even so, the longer the case they're working goes on, the more they come to realize they make a pretty good team. They even start to like each other. Together they must track down a killer and find a missing pregnant woman who's likely linked to the case.This was fast paced and one I hated to see end. I loved the characters and the plot kept me absorbed trying to figure out who was a good guy or gal and who was up to their neck involved in the murder. Definitely recommend this. Can't wait to see what happens next for Devlin and Falco.

    I could not put this book down. The first scene grabs you and then the author goes back ten days in time. I thought the author did a great job with the main female character, Kerri Devlin. She is a committed homicide detective that works on cases that are high profile. Detective Devlin is divorced with a teenage daughter. We get to see how the divorce, her work and her daughter affect each other. Kerri is assigned a new partner who is new to the detective rank. His name is Luke Falco.

We learn that Falco spent a great deal of time undercover. Devlin first is unsure of him but quickly learns that he is a stand up cop. They develop trust quickly but it is easy to see why in the book and doesn't seem forced. The case is complicated with rich, society and political intrigue. As we see more and more connections, some to Detective Devlin, the case becomes difficult. It was dark. It was difficult. But, it was worth it. I will definitely read the follow up book.

    This came up as one of the titles for Amazon's First Reads so I was reading the reviews for this book (bad ones first I admit) and was on the fence. Then one review hit home because it said don't buy a book unless you read a sample, and that's exactly what I did. I used the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon and immediately selected this book. I am so confused with the bad reviews I honestly thought I got a different book than the one they were reading. I did not find excessive use of profanity!

I am so confused with the bad reviews I honestly thought I got a different book than the one they were reading. I did not find excessive use of profanity! The story flowed well, and kept you interested all the way through, and part of the reason for that was the many characters and how intricately they were connected. The only issue I had with the book was the death of a certain someone I felt was unnecessary ( just my opinion), otherwise Excellent Book. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Wow. First let me say that this book had me hooked from the very beginning. There are so many twists and turns that even when I felt like I might have something it was quickly taken away. If you’re looking for a Gone Girl style book, I’d recommend this one. Had me guessing until the very end with shocking events that still made sense in the story when you considered the information you had been given.There are many many developed characters throughout this book with so many different motives and Wow.

At first I did feel like the writing was a little lower level, but as the book continues I was somewhat grateful for this as the narrative is so complex.

    Detective Kerri Devlin has a new partner, Luke Falco, who comes with a bit of a reputation. Just as she’s getting used to the idea of working with him, they’re called out to a crime scene with two dead bodies and a missing pregnant woman. As they dig further into what might have happened to Ben Abbott, a rich and smart tech whiz, and his mother-in-law, they realize quickly that people in the highest echelons of Birmingham society are involved.

Devlin is also struggling in her relationship with her teenage daughter and her uncooperative ex. Though some of the entanglements among society members seemed a bit over the top, the story had lots of twists and turns that I couldn’t always predict. Enjoyed the repartee between the detective partners as they learned how to work with each other.

    4.5Excellent detective story with a well-developed plot and round characters that I enjoyed and cared about. It was a little on the long side, but that's okay because I enjoyed it, and the author really took the time necessary to pay attention to detail. My only gripe is that it took a lot of suspension of disbelief to get around how all of the characters close to Kerri managed to be tied so closely to the characters in the case. I found myself going "wow, small world" just a bit too often. It w 4.5Excellent detective story with a well-developed plot and round characters that I enjoyed and cared about.

I really enjoyed the dynamics between Devlin and Falco, and I'll be on the lookout for additions to the series.
