Faceless


Faceless by Debra Webb ~~


Deputy district attorney Carson Tanner has dedicated his life to justice. But he is still haunted by one case that was never solved: the murder of his entire family in cold blood. Back then, the teenage Carson was protected by his girlfriend’s influential father, Senator Randolph Drake. But now, fifteen years later, Carson finds himself facing a whole new world when a man confesses to the Tanner killings. His name is John Stokes. And his confession only scratches the surface of the truth…
Carson knows that Annette Baxter uses her brains and beauty as a fixer for the rich and powerful, making their indiscretions disappear in exchange for security and influence. But now someone is using her clients’ secrets—and her own—against her. And even though Carson can’t ignore his attraction to her, he is dead-set on making Annette pay for her crimes…but what if she holds the key to the burning secret he’s spent his whole life seeking? (From Amazon)

Fifteen years after the fact, someone finally confesses to the murder of Carson Tanners family. Now someone has confessed and he should be putting it behind him. But on the eve of the confession, Carson is seduced by a beautiful woman, Annette Baxter. At the same time he's being groomed by his mentor to become the next District Attorney, and handed a case that will make his career and guarantee him the top spot. Too bad the one woman that can help him is the one that seduced him. Beginning to feel like he's been set up, Carson starts digging into the case, only to find the dead bodies piling up in his wake. While Carson tries to get Annette to flip, she begins to feed him information about what happened to his family and he needs to decide if he can trust her or not. Is she playing him too??? Carson and Annette end up working together to figure out who is responsible only to find out it's the one person they least expected.
