Say No More
Summary: When Boston reporter Jane Ryland reports a hit and run, she soon learns she saw more than a car crash—she witnessed the collapse of an alibi. Working on an expose of sexual assaults on college campuses for the station’s new documentary unit, Jane’s just convinced a date rape victim to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. However, a disturbing anonymous message—SAY NO MORE—has Jane really and truly scared.
Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. Her year as a college guest lecturer just ended at the bottom of her swimming pool in the tight-knit and tight-lipped Boston community called The Reserve. As Jake chips his way through a code of silence as shatterproof as any street gang, he’ll learn that one newcomer to the neighborhood may have a secret of her own.
A young woman faces a life-changing decision—should she go public about her assault? Jane and Jake—now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world—are both on a quest for answers as they try to balance the consequences of the truth.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I’ve really enjoyed Hank Phillippi Ryan’s Jane Ryland series for quite some time. It’s smart. Fast-paced. Entertaining.
What I liked:
The cover. I liked the colors and the typeset of the words.
Jane and Jake. Now they are semi-secretly engaged and I LOVE it. They are the best couple. They really love each other and even though their jobs have put them on opposite sides of issues before, you can tell that they truly have each others back.
The mystery. One thing I really enjoy about HPR books is that, on the surface, Jane and Jake are working different cases, but she always finds a way to tie their cases to one another. I like seeing the twists and turns as they figure out things.
The timeliness of the mystery. One part of this story is a subject that has been in the media for much of 2016. Hank takes that and puts her own spin on it (and with an angle to the story that makes it that much more sad when rape cases are not handled in the correct manner on college campuses.)
Bottom line: If this is your first Hank Phillippi Ryan book, I strongly encourage you to read her backlist (it’s A-MAZ-ING!) Fan of Jane Ryland books?Then just sit back and enjoy- HPR has this handled.
