    One thought on “Silent Partner”

    1. Silent Partner is an exercise in perfection. The characterization and plot keep the pages turning. It has everything on the menu that goes in a crime thriller. If you’re up for mystery and crime, then this book is for you. I rate this book a five-star read.

    2. I received an ARC from the author in return for an honest reviewJosh Harrell is a very interesting character and he drew me into the story, more so than Detective Ryan, if I’m honest. Psychic ability runs in his family but only manifests when the person reaches the age of 30. I have an open mind when it comes to the supernatural, paranormal and/or psychic phenomena, things beyond comprehension or explanation and this aspect in a story is appealing to me. And very intriguing when applied to a p [...]

    3. SVPD’s Detective Frankie Ryan has a reputation as a ball buster and vigilante. She and her partner, John Landry, are assigned a case which starts with two dead bodies found naked in a hotel room. However, when the identities of the victims are discovered it adds a twist to the investigation. Meantime, military vet and local reporter, Josh Harrell, has been given a ‘promotion’ – the dead man’s job at the ‘Midnight Whisperer’, a rag newspaper. Josh has also recently come into a famil [...]

    4. Silent Partner by Stan Schatt has an intriguing opening, featuring Detective Frankie Ryan (main character #1) being woken by a phone call to tell her she’s required at a double homicide - where one of the victims has had his pecker chopped off. Frankie’s just come off suspension for an (as yet undisclosed) incident, which has seen her labelled as ‘the feminist vigilante’ by the media - something which this latest case will no doubt exacerbate. What’s worse is that the male victim was a [...]

    5. Silent Partner by Stan Schatt is a detective novel which dabbles in the paranormal. The story takes place in Sea View, California, and opens with a ‘call out’ to investigate a double homicide at a South Park Motel.Detective Francis “Frankie” Ryan of the Sea View Police Department (SVPD) leads the investigation along with her partner, John “Lock and Load” Landry. Frankie has just come off a suspension for her actions in a prior case – a case which garnered her the nickname the “Fe [...]

    6. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I assumed at first that this must be book number 2 in a series, due to the numerous unexplained references to Frankie’s ‘feminist vigilante’ past. However, this eventually gets explained (but not until much too late, in my opinion). It left me with a nagging feeling that I was missing something.Silent Partner started off as a by-the-numbers police procedural, with nothing to hint at the fact that there might [...]

    7. While the description of this book does mention this is a paranormal police procedural, this doesn’t read like the Urban Fantasy story I was expecting. This is a old school hardboiled detective story, with a paranormal slant that feels out of place. The overall feel was a bit disjointed, and quite clunky, but the story itself was solid.From a character stance, I really liked Josh. He’s a trash magazine reporter who develops psychic abilities when he turns 30. He has some trouble adjusting, a [...]

    8. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewSilent Partner is a mystery with a paranormal element. Main character Josh Harrell, a tabloid reporter and author, develops psychic powers and helps the police solve a couple of crimes. In some ways it was two novels in one, as the reader follows both Detective Ryan who struggles in a male dominated police force and Josh as he stumbles upon psychic vision after vision.I loved Josh--he's the type of character that I'd love to fo [...]

    9. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Stan Schatt has created a good detective novel. He gives us plenty of different perspectives from different characters, even ones that may have motives.Then there were the characters. They felt like real people although I did admit to thinking that Josh was nothing but a reporter that had finally gone around the bend. Although after he was proven right multiple times I had to admit that maybe there was something to his gift. Stan Sc [...]

    10. Good read with a fairly interesting premise. It held my interest and I inhaled it in one day. One thing, though, I think I would've liked to see more development of the heroine - like things in her past that had only been hinted at expanded upon to flesh out her depth. I'd love to see this as the first book in a series and I hope Mr. Schatt writes more about Josh and Frankie. Also, I know this doesn't have a lot to do with the story, but I was really happy with the quality of the paperback, and [...]
