Web of Lies (Hidden Faces #4)

by Brandilyn Collins

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Brandilyn Collin spins a tale of mystery and death in the Hidden Faces series’ newest addition, Web of Lies. The story of forensic artist Annie Kingston continues when she witnesses the murder of a convenience store clerk in her hometown of Redding. While helping the city police work on the case, she is contacted by Christian psychic Chelsea Adams, who has received a chilling vision that may be linked to the convenience store murder. Working together, they search for clues within the vision that will help them destroy the web of lies.

This suspenseful book is as much about murder as it is faith. By relying on the providence of God, the characters use their respective skills to battle evil. This is a fast-paced story that will keep you on your toes. Collins is a skilled mystery writer, and in this book she continues with her trademark elements of psychic phenomena and citizen detective work, combining the finale of two series in one novel. The pace is steady, the characters are three-dimensional, and the resolution to the crime is logical. This book is mentally challenging and genuinely entertaining. -- Tabitha J. Spacht, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

She was washing dishes when her world began to blur.

Chelsea Adams hitched in a breath, her skin pebbling. She knew the dreaded sign all too well. God was pushing a vision into her consciousness.

Black dots crowded her sight. She dropped a plate, heard it crack against the porcelain sink. Her fingers fumbled for the faucet. The hiss of water ceased.

God, I don’t want this. Please!

After witnessing a shooting at a convenience store, forensic artist Annie Kingston must draw a composite of the suspect. But before she can begin, she hears that Chelsea Adams wants to meet with her—now. Chelsea Adams—the woman who made national headlines with her visions of murder. And this vision is by far the most chilling.

Chelsea and Annie soon find themselves snared in a terrifying battle against time, greed, and a deadly opponent. If they tell the police, will their story be believed? With the web of lies thickening, and lives ultimately at stake, who will know enough to stop the evil?
