Overview

The first graphic novel adaptation from master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman brings a stunning new visual edge to the classic New York Times bestseller Silent Partner—a “harrowing tale of murder and manipulation” (The Plain Dealer) that “hits the reader right between the eyes” (Los Angeles Times Book Review).
 
Alex Delaware is struggling to keep his relationship with girlfriend Robin Castagna alive when a beautiful face from the past suddenly steps back into his life. Sharon Ransom was Alex’s lover back in the day—until her mind games and increasingly erratic behavior drove them apart. Now Sharon tries to rekindle old feelings and seek his help with some new troubles. Alex turns her away—a decision he bitterly regrets when Sharon ends up dead the next day.
 
The official ruling is suicide, but for Alex the case won’t be closed until he finds out what happened. Driven by guilt and grief, he plunges deep into the territory he knows best—where dark secrets, dangerous fears, and twisted needs prey on hearts and minds. With the aid of his trusted friend, homicide cop Milo Sturgis, Alex traces Sharon’s fatal path through a world of Hollywood high life riddled with scandal, corruption, and blood—where innocence and lives are easily lost.
 
Scripted by Ande Parks, author of the acclaimed graphic novels Union Station and Capote in Kansas, and illustrated by Marvel and DC comics veteran Michael Gaydos, Silent Partner captures Jonathan Kellerman’s trademark blend of crime drama and psychodrama with noirish style and eye-catching, page-turning intensity.

    Don't WASTE your money on this one unless you can't read anythin

    Don't WASTE your money on this one unless you can't read anything but comic books. I bought this book because of the recent pub. date, and of course, the author. However, I had read this book when it came out as a book, so I did waste my money.

    Because I bought the Nook version, it was doubly disappointing, as I couldn't see the words well enought to read them (even with the new, improved bifocals). Won't catch me getting another "graphic" book - I prefer to use my imagination when reading the written word.

    Maybe in a different medium

    I gave this two stars because it is by Jonathan Kellerman and would love to give it more, but I purchased this for my Nook and it was totally unreadable. You have to enlarge everything. Love Kellerman but graphic novels are not for the Nook.
