"Is she a reporter or a cop?"

Fresh Fiction Review

Say No More

Reviewed by Sharon Salituro

Thriller

Jane Ryland is a newspaper reporter. Jane has been working with her producer Fiola on a story about what has been happening on college campuses. Women have reported being raped at school and the administration doesn't seem to be doing anything about it. The women are told to say nothing. Of course they don't want the reputation of the school to be damaged.

Jake is a detective. Jake and his partner DeLuca are working a murder investigation. A young teacher Avery has been found dead in her pool. With the only witness being a dog, they really have to do some digging to get to the bottom of this.

Jane and Jake are engaged. They have to keep it a secret as it doesn't really look good for a cop and reporter to be together. Both have promised each other that they would not question what they were working on. However, it seems that both of these crimes are related.

Both are interviewing the same people. Jane receives a phone call from a young woman, who wants to tell her story. Since she was attached, she has not been able to leave her apartment. Jane and Fiola meet with her and find out that she knows more about both crimes. They convince her to tell her story.

As more and more evidence comes forward, Jane and Jake find that there are way too many twist and turns to both of these crimes.

What a great story by Hank Phillippi Ryan. I enjoyed the way that she had a little romance mixed in with a mystery. Never would have guessed the ending of this story. There are many different story lines, but they all come together. She also showed how doing the two jobs could get in the way of a relationship. Both had to keep secrets from each other.

If you enjoy a good murder mystery this is the book for you. Hoping more Jane Ryland novels will follow.

SUMMARY

Say No More: The Thrilling Next Installment in Hank Phillippi Ryan's Award-Winning Jane Ryland Series!

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.
