Angela Day has a past she would like to forget. She came from a poor family, only to marry a horrible man with a powerful family to whom she loses custody of her only child. But, at thirty-one Angela has managed to have a great career at Sumter Bank until she gets an offer from Jake Lawrence.
Jake Lawrence is a reclusive multibillionaire who plans on taking over a hot, new company... he also happens to be a stockholder at Sumter Bank.
Jake sets up his meeting with Angela to make her an offer...an offer she can't refuse. The terms of the offer are simple; Angela uses her skills, and charm to oversee the takeover and make sure everything goes smoothly, and secretly, and Jake will have her permanently reunited with her son.
This reward is one Angela will risk everything for, and accepting the offer will mean just that, for behind the take-over is a master player willing to kill to get what he wants. The clock is ticking as Angela races to clear her name, and bring down the dirty players within her own company before they strike out at what is most precious to her.
'Silent Partner' is a gripping, suspenseful, page-turner that can't be put down once started. Fast action, and multiple plot lines keep things going until the exciting climax where all the pieces of the complex puzzle come together. Well written, and extremely fast paced, 'Silent Partner' surprises with every turn of the page, and will satisfy even the most jaded thriller readers.
Stephen Frey is the master of the financial thriller, and as long as he keeps turning out novels like this he will never lose the title. I have been a fan of Frey's since the publication of his first novel 'The Takeover', and every novel since has been excellent with 'Silent Partner' being about the best yet. Expect to see this novel on all the bestseller lists.
