    The Silent Victim is the first book in the Jessie Tucker Mystery series and I have to say I was completely and thoroughly hooked right from the start. Crime reporter Jessie Tucker was attacked twelve years ago as she made her way home from an outdoor concert. Having fought her way back to full recovery, a slight limp is the only reminder of the trauma of that night. The police told her she was unlucky and that she was safe after they charged a local man for the crime. But Jessie has never managed to shake the feeling that there was someone else in the park that night, that she knew. When a woman is attacked and killed, the police believe the deceased was a random target, but Jessie Tucker isn’t convinced – she’s seen this crime scene before, when she was the victim. When the dead woman, Margaret Kincaid’s murder file lands on her desk, Jessie knows she can’t keep silent any longer. Margaret’s wounds exactly match her own, but Jessie’s attacker is in prison, and Jessie has never met the victim. What links her to Margaret Kincaid, and why did the attacker let one woman live, and the other die? Then the police gun down their main suspect and it seems that Margaret’s case will die with him. But Jessie is sure that the police got it wrong: the real killer is still out there, and it’s someone close to home. It’s up to Jessie to put together the pieces before he finds his next victim… but who can she trust with the horrendous truth? Written from the point of view of Jessie, I fell right into this well-crafted and absorbing tale and I felt as though I was shadowing her as she worked at chasing her story and following her leads and instincts. I adored the story-lines which were easy to follow and Dana Perry's writing-style was impressive and note-worthy. I had considered several scenarios but I completely off the mark and never would have guessed the end result. Also, I think that the author merely scratched the surface with Jessie's portrayal. I was extremely taken with this character's toughness, drive and tenacity and look forward to reading about her in future instalments of this series. With its polished pacing and plotting I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable, original and difficult to put down début from Dana Perry. Evidently he is a gifted storyteller who can provide readers with thrills, sophistication and a story packed with substance. A very highly recommended five star read. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Bookouture via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    WOW WOW WOW I absolutely loved this book. It completely blew my mind and I have not been able to stop thinking about it since I finished reading it! There are so many adjectives to describe this book but here are some that describe it best. It is action packed, addictive, brilliant, captivating, compelling, dangerous, dark, gripping, intense, riveting, spine tingling, terrifying and twisted! I could just keep going and going! I devoured this in one sitting as I could not tear myself away from it. What a magnificent start to a new series. I need the next book stat! Dana has crafted a chilling plot that took me hostage right from the start until the final word. I was glued to the pages and was disappointed when it came to the end. I just couldn’t get enough. What I loved about this story the most is that Jessie Tucker is not part of the police force. While I love police procedural books that centre on detectives, I thought Dana making a newspaper journalist it’s central character to solve the crime a refreshing change. It was good to look at this type of book from a different perspective rather than the norm. I also really enjoyed the setting in New York. While it is a beautiful state, Dana focuses more on its darker side with its crime, shady politicians and dirty cops. Jessie Tucker is such an amazing character. She has been extremely well written and brought to life beautifully. She is so inspiring and what I loved most about her was her strength. She has been through the most traumatic of experiences, but has come through the other side so much stronger. She could have quite easily just shut herself off from the world but she was not going to stay the victim. I loved how she always followed her gut instincts and didn’t let others get in the way, even if it meant breaking some rules along the way and at the risk of putting herself in danger. I haven’t been this excited about a character in a long time and can’t wait to see what Dana has in store for her in the second instalment. I really loved Dana’s style. I was impressed with his writing, which is so engaging and gave life to the story. It is very visual and I could see each scene being played out in my head as I read each word. The characters are all perfectly written and are well developed and believable in the roles that they play. Dana also does a great job in building tension and suspense throughout which includes ingenious twists and turns. Just when you think it is all done, Dana throws in a twist, then another, then another and then another one! My head was spinning and my heart was racing! It was fantastic and not over done in the slightest. It just enhanced the story even more and my enjoyment of it. Dana is definitely the master at this. So I think you get the drift that I loved this book and can not recommend it highly enough. It is a stunning start for a new series and a first class crime thriller where I hope there will be many books to come. It is definitely in my top books for 2019, with Dana being my standout male author of the year. Look out James Patterson, there is a new crime thriller writer in town! Thank-you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Dana Perry for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Silent Victim which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    The silent Victim

    A jaw dropping finish with more twists then you can imagine. "It's easy to read conspiracy into things that you have no answer for...." Sometimes things just seem a little bit too easy...a little bit too convenient. Jessie Tucker survived a brutal attack 12 years before in Central Park. This changed her life in so many ways. She is now a crime reporter for the Tribune concentration on the stories of the victims. Margaret Kincaids body is found in Central Park. She was bludgeoned to death with a rock. She worked in the campaign office of Senator Frank Lansdale and was in a relationship with his son. Her murderer is swiftly found and killed by the police when he resists arrest. Things don't add up for Jessie. Who was Margaret really and why is there an eerie resemblance to her own case 12 years ago? Jessie is like a real pitbull who will not give up finding the truth even if it means going up against powerful people. I can highly recommend this book! It's a quick read that will really keep you guessing till the end....and then some more!
