"Is she a reporter or a cop?"
Reviewed by Sharon Salituro
Posted July 17, 2017
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.

to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. However, a
disturbing anonymous message—SAY NO MORE—has Jane really and
Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the
murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter.

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.

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.
