About the Author

Jennifer Chase holds a bachelor degree in police forensics and a master's degree in criminology. In addition, she holds certifications in serial crime and criminal profiling. She is also an affiliate member in the criminology section of the Academy of Behavioral Profiling (ABP). Jennifer is an author, freelance writer, and criminologist.

More About the Author

The love that author Jennifer Chase has for books and writing began with the weekly trips that her mom would take with her to the local library. Jennifer would load up her arms with books and spend the week pouring over them until the next visit brought the opportunity to discover even more authors and stories. Before long, she was taking pen to paper and a lifelong connection with creating characters and plotlines was made.

Jennifer has found her niche in the writing world by integrating another passion, criminology, into her work. She holds a bachelors degree in police forensics and a masters in criminology, academic pursuits that developed out of her curiosity about the criminal mind as well as from her own experience with a violent sociopath, providing Jennifer with deep personal investment in every story she tells. She also holds certifications in serial crime and criminal profiling and is a proud member of the International Association of Forensic Criminologists.

This research background has assisted Jennifer in writing multiple crime thrillers, including Compulsion, Dead Game, Silent Partner, Dark Mind and Dead Burn, earning multiple readers' choice awards and other accolades along the way, including a recent gold medal awarded for Dead Burn by a panel of professionals in the publishing industry as part of the International Book Awards. She also has published a non-fiction book, How to Write a Screenplay, which offers a step-by-step guide to this special craft. In addition to her own writing work, Jennifer assists other authors with their own publishing efforts and does some consulting work in the criminology field.

Jennifer Chase was born and raised in California and still lives there with her husband, dogs and cats. In addition to writing and studying, Jennifer enjoys spending time outdoors, both at the beach and hiking, and engaging in some amateur photography.

I do not want to spoil the ending, but I was left puzzled.
Seana Powell
There is tension, twists, and turns that will surprise you right to the very end.
Nancy of Utah
Just the editing and awkward structure was a bit of a turn off at times.

I did try to enjoy this book, but only got part way through. I find it amazing (perhaps its because I'm reading the Kindle version?) that not many reviewers have mentioned the incredibly simple grammatical & tense errors, let alone the spelling errors. Obviously someone has run a spell check through the manuscript (the errors I am speaking of include things such as 'experiences' instead of 'experienced'), then have gone no further with the novel's much needed editing. Add to these the number of times that the author states something twice but in a different manner, & all within the one sentence, & the incredible number of off-putting sentence fragments - well, no matter how good the story, I get tired of these mistakes very quickly. Sorry!!

A complimentary copy of this novel was received in return for review. In no way did these circumstances affect the reviewer's opinion.

I wanted to read this book because of the K9 unit, but it was so badly written, I just couldn't get into it. After plowing my way through the first 30% of the book I have decided to give up on it. The editing was bad, typos many, and minimal continuity. Maybe it all gets pulled together toward the end, but I just can't get there. There are too many good books out there to read for me to waste any more time on this one. I received this complimentary book in exchange for a review.

I received this complimentary book in exchange for a review.
This book is badly written and there are so many gaps in the story that is is very hard to finish. The editing is terrible which also causes confusion .
The story reads in some places like a police report with no emotion just some facts.
I do like the dogs though and the parts about how brave and loyal they are but that is about it .
There is a story here but perhaps the author should have spent more time putting it together.
There are too many pieces of the story not linked together to make this an enjoyable read.

Format: Paperback
First Line: The rain stopped abruptly on the thirty-sixth consecutive day of torrential downpours.

A prolific serial killer is leaving a bloody trail that will unlock one family's secrets while it tears a police department apart. Jack Davis, a K9 cop, finds himself falling in love with a suspect. Megan O'Connell, an agoraphobic, is the prime suspect in her sister's murder. Psychopath Darrell Brooks is on a mission to drive Megan insane. Everyone is a suspect. Everyone has a secret. If the truth is going to remain buried, someone is going to have to die.

Silent Partner is a fast-paced roller coaster ride with a surprising climax. I really enjoyed reading about crime fighting from the point of view of the police K9 units. It's something that I hope Chase continues in future books.

Chase also shows a talent for characterization. The bad guy, Darrell Brooks, aroused so much disgust in me that I wanted Keno and all his other four-legged buddies on the force to tackle him and chew on him for a long time. Even one of the victims who lasts for only a page or two is drawn with poignancy: "She eyed the stash. Her friend Tiffany was going to be so jealous. Maybe this guy was going to be her Richard Gere from Pretty Woman, she thought hopefully to herself."

As much as I enjoyed the characters and the story, I feel that the book needed more proof-reading and more editing. It's a rare book these days that isn't published with at least one glitch, but Silent Partner had more than its fair share. The tendency towards sentence fragments repeatedly threw me out of the story and interrupted the pace of the narrative. Like this one:

"Darrell emerged from the other end of the alley kicking an empty whiskey bottle as he rounded the corner.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is heartwarming the love and dedication felt by a police officer and his K9 partner. In most cases justice prevails, but unfortunately, sometimes even with training and years of experience, officers and their partners trust is misplaced. This books ending caught me by surprise. Well worth reading.

I would have given this story 5 stars because it was so good and I love this author's work, but the editing errors were so bad they distracted from the really well done mystery/suspense story. I loved the K9 aspect of this book, and the human hero was a great guy-and honest hard working cop with integrity. There were a few really well done red herrings and misdirections in this one which is always fun. I was pleased to see Emily and Rick make a few appearances in this book-they are the h/h from this author's Emily Stone series and I loved getting to see them again, albeit only in a peripheral role. All in all, this is a very well plotted, non stop thrill ride, that leaves the reader breathless with suspense at times and the only aspect that impedes enjoyment is the previously mentioned shoddy editing.

The author sent me this book for review a couple of years ago. I was browsing through my kindle looking for a crime drama and came across this one recently and decided to give it a read. I really needed something easy and it looked to be just the ticket.

It's not a bad book, but it's a bit awkwardly written in places with some grammar errors - definitely needs a really good edit. The story itself, however, is actually pretty good. I guess I never really thought too much about the K9 units and their place on the police force - much less the relationship that develops between the dog and his partner.

That part of it was really good... as was the killer. It was a pretty well thought out story and it was conveyed well. Just the editing and awkward structure was a bit of a turn off at times.

Overall, this was a good book for me to read when I needed some brain candy to get me through a stressful time of the year.

Recommended for crime drama lovers.
