I have a writer friend that looks very sweet and caring, and would you believe she writes very scary stuff? You have figured it out, but I’m talking about Brandilyn Collins. And if you like books that force you to keep the lights on at night, you might like this one. Okay, scratch that “might.” You WILL like this one.
It starts out with Chelsea Adams, of Eyes of Elisha fame. 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!
Then enters Annie Kingston, forensic artist of the Hidden Faces Series.
Annie and her sister Jenna witness a convenience store shooting, and Annie is called to draw the face of the shooter. Her plate fills quickly.
Shortly thereafter, a project that her sister is working on, at a private airfield in their neighborhood unearths a skeleton and another murder. Annie also has to reconstruct the face.
Enter Chelsea Adams. Her national claim to fame is visions from God. And these visions always put her at odds with law enforcement … But she solves murders! Now she’s had a vision and has to get Annie Kingston to draw the face.
Annie and Chelsea are up against a cunning madman, who truly plays to the title, Web of Lies. Lives are at stake. Will they be able to stop this evil?
In my estimation, one of the cool aspects of this novel is Brandilyn Collins’ writing. Hidden Faces series books are always written in the first-person perspective of Annie. While Chelsea Adams novels are written in third-person. The two are blended together seamlessly in this novel, with the killer getting a bold third-person perspective.
In this fast-paced, dynamic novel you discover that God reveals things in His own time. And true to Brandilyn Collins style, there is a twist that will have you rethinking and rereading the whole book to find the clues!
As with all of Brandilyn Collins’ Seatbelt Suspense

I love spreading the news about Brandilyn because she has encouraged me in many ways, and I’m blessed to spend four or five days every year with her at her home. Brandilyn has also played a part in helping me plot my books–she’s one brilliant cookie!
