See what others are saying about NOT ONE OF US:

“Herbert steadily multiplies acts of violence and betrayal as she knits [a] new crime closer and closer together with [an] old. More tellingly, she gradually deepens both heroines’ horror at discovering just how low the people who disparage outsiders and newcomers as ‘not one of us’ are willing to go to preserve their privilege.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Those with a taste for Southern gothic will be satisfied.” —Publishers Weekly

Secrets, betrayal, murder—Debbie Herbert weaves a multi-layered tale of small-town intrigue with unique and unforgettable characters. Don’t miss Not One of Us!” —Debra Webb, Amazon Charts and USA Today bestselling author

What a pleasure it was to surrender to Not One of Us, chock full of thick, humid atmosphere and authentic, vivid characters, and let it pull me into its deep-South trance of unsolved murders, dirty cops, and a family torn apart by guilt, and their own desperate need for each other. Engima is a town you’re going to want to visit over and over again. This book’s an absolute knockout.” —Emily Carpenter, bestselling author of Reviving the Hawthorn Sisters

Intensely satisfying, Not One of Us is a deftly woven tale rich with southern secrets and lies that will keep you hooked late into the night.” —Eliza Maxwell, bestselling author of The Unremembered Girl

An eerie, atmospheric psychological thriller that’s fast-paced, darkly twisted, and satisfyingly saturated with family secrets. Not One of Us is everything I want in a Debbie Herbert southern gothic.” —Eve Silver, award-winning author of the Dark Gothic series

Compulsive and addictive. An atmospheric and gripping tale that kept me turning pages well into the night.” —Charlotte Byrd, bestselling romantic suspense author of over a million books sold


From the bestselling author of Cold Waters comes a brooding thriller about a woman who must decide if safeguarding her family is worth burying a truth that will haunt her forever.

Thirteen years ago, Jori Trahan’s boyfriend vanished without a trace. Now, after moving back home to Alabama to care for her ailing grandmother and autistic brother, she comes face-to-face with the deadly mystery behind his disappearance.

Jori has a rare form of synesthesia, meaning she can “hear” colors; to her, tones of voice are as unique as fingerprints. With the help of this ability and a sympathetic cop, Jori comes dangerously close to uncovering the truth. But those responsible will go to any length—including murder—to keep their dark secrets buried.

Soon, it seems that no one in the sleepy bayou town is safe, and after Jori’s brother is kidnapped, she knows she must drop the investigation or risk losing her family. But when protecting them means letting an evil deed go unpunished, putting family first may be the last thing she’ll ever do.
