Date Published: December 2015 2nd Edition
Who Will Survive?
Northern California’s elite Police K9 Units arrive at an abandoned warehouse after a high-speed chase and apprehend two killers after they have fled a grisly murder scene. This barely scratches the surface of a bloody trail from a prolific serial killer that leads to unlocking the insidious secrets of one family’s history, while tearing a police department apart.
Jack Davis, a top K9 cop with an unprecedented integrity, finds himself falling for a beautiful murder suspect and struggling with departmental codes.
Megan O’Connell, suffering from agoraphobia, is the prime murder suspect in her sister’s brutal murder.
Darrell Brooks, a psychopath who loves to kill, is on a quest to drive Megan insane for profit.
Everyone is a suspect. Everyone has a secret. Someone else must die to keep the truth buried forever. Silent Partner is a suspense ride along that will keep you guessing until the bitter end.
I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.
When Megan was a young child, she witnessed her father killing her mother. Megan as an adult has agoraphobia. When her sister is killed, she is considered a suspect. Deputy Jack Davis and his canine partner Keno are on a case involving a serial killer which is how Jack and Megan meet. They become close, but can Jack discover the murderer in time?
This mystery thriller is fast paced. In the beginning, the book seems a little disjointed as so many stories are started. The reader gets snapshots of characters or events, and then the author moves on. The story jumps around quite a bit. Eventually some of the snapshots are brought together so the reader can see the bigger picture and how things connect. The strongest part of the story is Jack's relationship with his Canine partner Keno. There is a strong bond, and I enjoyed reading about them on the job together.
