The story, the character, grabbed me and twisted me into knots. I suspected everyone and trusted no one. And identified with Jessie way too much. (My own personal mantra is trust no one...suspect everybody).
Jessie Tucker is a fascinating character. She seemed to have few resources to call on. Sure, a few, but not like other amateur detectives in books and on tv. More deductive reasoning, I think, that sometimes led her to the wrong conclusion and the wrong culprit. I was right there with her. Believe me, there were plenty of culprits!
Jessie didn’t write things down in a reporter’s notebook, list suspects on a whiteboard or type notes into a computer. She didn’t ask about DNA or a lot of cop-type evidence. Her skills were those of a reporter: ask questions, get answers. And then ask another question.
I haven’t been captivated by a book in a long time. The Silent Victim is a fascinating read and Jessie Tucker is great. I’m looking forward to the next book in this new series—with fingers crossed that the author doesn’t disappoint. The Silent Victim is a hard act to follow.
When Margaret Kincaid is found dead in the same area as Jessie's attack, she not only is on the case, but it starts to trigger memories of her own from 12 years ago.
Just like her case, the police have found their suspects and the cases are closed. But once Jessie starts digging further through the police reports, of both Margaret's and her own assaults, she realizes that maybe the wrong person was found guilty, both now and then.
I read the majority of this book in one day because I could NOT put it down. There are many intricate details in this book, which made this book electrifying and had me wondering what the author's mindset was while writing this book.....BRILLIANT!!!!
The action and suspense accelerate with each turn of the page!! GRIPPING!!! The narrative pulled me in, and with the author's amazing writing style, I was so engrossed and it felt like I was watching a movie in my head! Totally absorbing!! An adrenaline rush throughout! The ending and how the author pulled it all together outstanding!!!
Do not miss out on this outstanding read!!! And even better news, this is the first book in what will become a series, which I will be the first in line to get my hands on the sequel!!!!
THE SILENT VICTIM is an incredibly engrossing psychological/journalistic emotional thriller. Twelve years ago Jessie Tucker was accosted in Central Park, viciously beaten, left for dead. Eventually she achieved a miraculous recovery which she has never taken for granted. She left advertising to become a reporter, at which she is a bulldog and award winner. But this latest story proves to be so incredibly convoluted and quite possibly connected to her own assault. Finding the facts is akin to traveling the convolutions of the interior of a Nautilus shell; but oh how gratifying for the immensely engaged reader!

This is the first in the Jessie Tucker series and I’m really excited to read the next one. As always I love discovering new authors and starting their series from the beginning. This news series by Dana Perry is no exception.
I really liked the characters in this novel and we meet a lot! I adored our main right from the start, I loved her tenacity and she’s very intuitive and smart! Can’t wait to read more about Jessie’s adventures!
