Review

Silent Partner is a fast paced thriller that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat till they reach the amazing conclusion of the book. An excellent mystery that is clearly written with no bad language or sexual exploits which I prefer. If you like to read a good mystery that leads you to think you know who did it, but then find you`re wrong, then you won't want to miss reading Jennifer Chase's newest book Silent Partner. Recommended highly. --Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

Jennifer Chase has a fantastic writing style where she paints a picture of each scene with her words allowing the reader to easily visualize the locations in the book. Also, the character s conversations in the book flow so naturally and feel so real that I was drawn right into the storyline like I was a part of the book. The character development in the book is exceptional as the author provides the reader with lots of details and background which really helped bring each character to life. As I got further into the book and was caught up in the storyline I had a hard time putting down Silent Partner: A California Police K9 Story because I was driven by the fact that I needed to find out where this exciting storyline was going next. I won t give away the storyline or the ending but I will tell you that the book is full of twists and turns which will keep you turning the pages on your Kindle until you arrive at the final dramatic conclusion. I can t wait to read more books by Jennifer Chase and I highly recommend this book for fans of action filled police novels, crime dramas or psychological thrillers. --Ed NerdyTechTalk

It's deadly when you're a cop and you fall for your suspect. Silent Partner is a riveting crime drama as K9 cop Jack Davis finds a dead woman, and her sister is the prime suspect. With lots of red tape, Jack finds himself finding Megan, the suspect, to be more than a hardened criminal and with a deeper, darker secret. When someone seems to be pulling the strings behind it all, finding the truth will prove quite difficult. Silent Partner is highly riveting and full of nonstop action. --Midwest Book Review

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 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 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.

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.

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.

Jennifer Chase has rightfully earned a strong fan base following the release of her first two novels to feature heroine Emily Stone—Compulsion and Dead Game. I have been fortunate enough to review both of these books as well as interview the author upon their publication, so it was with great anticipation that I waited to find a copy of her newest release in my hands. And, I was not surprised to find that Chase had produced yet another thrilling page-turner. Silent Partner is a novel that will chill you with the callous evil of its criminals and have you engaged in the dramatic life of Deputy Jack Davis in his dedication to caring for both strangers and loved ones who cross his path.

For those not already familiar with the character of Emily Stone, she is prominent in Chase’s first novels. Stone tracks the pedophiles, rapists, and killers who are terrorizing small towns, gathers evidence against them using technology and great instinct, and then anonymously leaves her files of proof with the local police department before moving on the next case. While Emily Stone does play an important role in Silent Partner, readers should not expect her to be featured as she was in Chase’s previous work. Instead, we are introduced to Deputy Jack Davis. He is a man who is still haunted by what happened in the home of his childhood friend many years ago and, upon a chance reunion, realizes that the girl who watched her mother die at the hands of her father is still living the nightmare every day.

The reemerging relationship between Davis and his childhood friend, Megan O’Connell, is set against a series of vicious murders that are carried out by men who seem to carry no remorse or sense of value to human life.
