REVIEW

"Missing girls, murder and mayhem galore!"

San Antonio Detective Rebecca Montgomery is still not one hundred percent. It's been five months since her younger sister's disappearance. Danielle's body was never found, but a credit card trail led to a motel room covered with her blood. Her mother, the only family Becca still has, lost it. The person responsible for Danielle's disappearance has never been caught. Becca is determined to catch whoever it may be, but her boss pulled her off the case and assigned her to another one. At least this case will keep Becca from brooding about her sister. A body was bricked into the wall during the renovations of a theater seven years ago. Not much is left but bones and a necklace. After digging through old missing persons files, Becca finally finds a name to go with the body and after gaining DNA samples from family members, identifies the corpse as Isabel Marquez. Now Becca is pulled off this case due to FBI involvement and forced to take a week's vacation.

While at the crime scene initially, Becca sees a man who definitely does not fit in with the other onlookers. This one is driving a Mercedes and is obviously not working class. When Becca goes outside to find out who he could be, he turns the tables around by waiting for her with a cup of coffee, just the way she likes it. When he warns her off the case, Becca just digs herself in deeper and is determined to find out who murdered Isabel.

Who is this mystery man Becca is obviously attracted to? Why did he warn her off the case? Is there something bigger going on in San Antonio with the missing girls? Will Becca ever get closure over her sister's disappearance?

NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM packs one heck of a punch for a debut novel. Jordan Dane definitely knows her craft with all the different twists and turns involved in the investigation. I could actually feel what Becca was going through trying to come to terms with the disappearance of her younger sister and dealing with her mother. Not to mention, her absolute refusal to give up on finding answers as to who could have abducted Danielle and what happened to her. I really identified with the heroine easily and went through the gamut of emotions right along with her. The plot kept me turning pages right up until the last one, and it delivers a very satisfying ending. And I have to admit, Jordan Dane has just been added to my already enormous list of auto-buy authors.

SUMMARY

A relentless detective with the San Antonio Police Department is barred from an investigation into the disappearance and murder of her younger sister and forced to take another assignment. Skeletal remains buried in the wall of an old theatre destroyed by arson make an intriguing new case. But when the bones turn out to be of a woman, close in age to her sister, the hunt for a killer gets personal—a vendetta for justice.

A seductive enforcer to the mob, with secrets of his own, stands between the detective and a powerful man she believes is linked to the murder. Will the reluctant henchman become an ally or betray her to his treacherous 'benefactor'? Drawn into the sinister world of human trafficking, the modern-day slave trade, the detective unravels a grim trail of destroyed lives—leaving her little hope for vindication in the death of her sister and a nameless young woman buried alive.
