Silent Partner by Stan Schatt

(Image found on Goodreads)
"Frankie groaned. That paper already had published a piece filled with lies and innuendos about her. She could imagine how it would treat the murder of one of its own." -Stan Schatt, Silent Partner

Detective Frankie Ryan has been portrayed as a feminist vigilante. When one of the reporters for the same paper that published the piece turns up murdered, Frankie knows it will be a difficult case.  But when a psychic reporter from that same paper shows up claiming to get visions about events, she finds herself havint to rely on her instincts to find a killer before its too late. Find the official description on Goodreads.

Stan Schatt has created a good detective novel. He gives us plenty of different perspectives from different characters, even ones that may have motives.

Then there were the characters. They felt like real people although I did admit to thinking that Josh was nothing but a reporter that had finally gone around the bend. Although after he was proven right multiple times I had to admit that maybe there was something to his gift. 

Stan Schatt also took on the difficult issue of gender identity, and the effects that many different things could have on people who are Transgender, most specifically. It gave me a new perspective and I love that I was given this chance to see it develop throughout the book.

Silent Partner was a good detective novel, and you should check it out when it's released on September 1st, 2014.
