Publisher's Summary

The serial killer known as the Player is taunting Jess Harris with pictures of his victims. He has dragged her into another of his deadly games. But Jess has a job to do in Birmingham. She's a deputy chief and her unit's latest case involves one of Birmingham's oldest and coldest cases.For two decades the Man in the Moon stole a little girl each year on the night of a harvest moon. Then suddenly he stopped, and the case was never solved. Now, 13 years after the last child was taken, Jess receives a gift from the Man in the Moon - the remains of his final victim. When the bones and the terrifying messages written to Jess just keep coming, she and her team must find the Man in the Moon before he takes another victim. As Jess closes her case, one last message from the Player reminds her that the game is far from over.

Critic Reviews

"Webb's next installment in her Faces of Evil series is not only a treat for fans, but is going to provide some chills...Webb twists parallel storylines together into a more than satisfying climax." ( RT Book Reviews)

Great Series!!

Would you listen to Ruthless again? Why?

Probably not because I have so many titles waiting in my library. And I want to move on to Webb's next book.

What did you like best about this story?

Everybody is so down to Earth even though they are in extraordinary circumstances. The characters are all really likable and funny. Even the villains are kind of fabulous.

Which character – as performed by Carol Schneider – was your favorite?

Definitely Jess Harris. She finds the humor and the tough cop in her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Love the scenes between the characters, particularly Jess and Dan. It feels like eavesdropping on real people.
