“I really enjoy the style of Laurel Dewey’s writing. Her characters are strong and interesting, and her protagonist, Jane Perry is just plain gutsy."
– Blogcritics

Laurel Dewey’s Detective Jane Perry is quickly becoming one of the most distinctive, dynamic, and unforgettable characters in suspense fiction today. She’s rock hard, but capable of extraordinary tenderness. She’s a brilliant cop, but she’s capable of making life-altering mistakes. She’s uncannily talented, and she’s heartbreakingly human.

In Unrevealed, Dewey gives us four indelible portraits of Jane Perry:

ANONYMOUS: One of Jane's first AA meetings leads her to an encounter with a woman in need of her detection skills...and a secret she never expected to uncover.

YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER: Forced by her boss to speak at a high school career day, Jane meets a troubled boy and finds that his story is only the beginning of a much more revealing tale.

YOU'RE ONLY AS SICK AS YOUR SECRETS: An early-morning homicide call introduces Jane to a mystery as layered as it is unsuspected.

THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM: Jane finds herself sharing a 2:00 am conversation at a downtown bar with an old acquaintance. Will the bloody night that proceeded this moment complicate Jane's intentions?

Filled with secrets disclosed and others desperately covered, Unrevealed is an absolute treat for all Jane Perry fans – four stories, all told from Jane's distinctive and unparallelled perspective.

    I Just Found A Great New Author!!!!!

    UNREVEALED by Laurel Dewey
    Published by The Story Plant
    ISBN-13: 9781611880236
    ISBN: 1611880238
    At the request of The Story Plant, a PDF EBook Edition of a double novelette, Promissory Payback and Unrevealed were provided, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.

    Synopsis (from publisher): In UNREVEALED, Dewey gives us four indelible portraits of Jane Perry:
    ANONYMOUS: One of Jane's first AA meetings leads her to an encounter with a woman in need of her detection skills...and a secret she never expected to uncover.
    YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER: Forced by her boss to speak at a high school career day, Jane meets a troubled boy and finds that his story is only the beginning of a much more revealing tale.
    YOU'RE ONLY AS SICK AS YOUR SECRETS: An early-morning homicide call introduces Jane to a mystery as layered as it is unsuspected.
    THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM: Jane finds herself sharing a 2:00 am conversation at a downtown bar with an old acquaintance. Will the bloody night that proceeded this moment complicate Jane's intentions?

    My Thoughts and Opinion: As I stated in my previous review, I had just found a new author and had much catching up to do. I enjoyed her writing style and most definitely her main character, Detective Jane Perry. Ms Dewey piqued my curiosity as to the so called "birth" of this new character that I wanted to read more about. However, on to the second novelette. Four (4) stories within a book of 94 pages? How in depth could it be? Could four (4) good suspenseful stories be told in 94 pages? To my utter amazement the answer was yes. The author wrote 4 descriptive concise short stories in 94 pages, that were so detailed, that I was engrossed to the point that I wasn't aware of what was going on around me. The characters came to life and it was so detailed that I was able to create a vivid visualization in my mind. My thoughts, I need to purchase the first book starring Detective Jane Perry. My opinion, if you enjoy reading from the genre of mystery and suspense, this is an author you need to read.

    My Rating: 4

    Great start to a series

    I never read anything by this author before so this was a great introduction to her writing as well as this series. Jane Perry is a wonderful and strong female character. I always enjoy "discovering" strong female characters. She says what's on her mind and she's a character that readers will be cheering for. This novella was a great way to learn more about this character before reading more in this series.

    The publisher provided me with a copy of this book to review for a blog tour. This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Great Read!

    I purchased this for $.99 and believe me, it's worth a lot more. These (4) little stories give you insight into Jane Perry's character without bogging you down in a lot of details.

    I'm getting ready to read Laurel Dewey's second Jane Perry novel. I've enjoyed the character (she has more issues than I do so it works for me). Fast paced stories - just good reading.

    Great Read

    I have just discovered the Jane Perry series. It took me a little while to get into the story, because of Jane's personal problems, but once I understood that part of the book., I am a devoted fan. I have read 3 of the books and intend to read them all. Lauren Dewey is an excellent writer.

    nice read

    Unrevealed is a collection of four short - and I mean very short stories featuring detective Jane Perry. The longest of these little snippets is 34 pages long. Unlike a lot of reviewers out there, I enjoy reading short stories from time to time. Some authors are extraordinarily good at producing stories that are well developed and carry a punch, with an economy of words. I wouldn't say these stories fit into this category. These stories read more like police files. They have all the facts but the mystery is not really a mystery. There is no real depth to the stories and the outcome of each is quite obvious from the outset. That said, I think there are some seriously redeeming qualities to this collection: 1) it provides a comprehensive introduction to Jane Perry, homicide detective, private investigator, recovering alcoholic. Before the end of the first story in the book, I was hooked on the main character. I really love Jane. She is gritty and real and actually flawed, which I love in a heroine. 2) The writing is very impressive. Laurel Dewey is easy to read, interesting and the words and story flow beautifully. Reading this little collection made me want to know more about the cases profiled and also about the detective spotlighted. I was happy to move on to the novella waiting in the wings. Don't let the size of the book fool you. This is definitely an adult read (OK maybe older teens as well). The language is pretty rough.

    Live To Read

    Four short stories reveal more about tough yet intuitive detective Jane Perry, and also showcase the descriptive writing skill of author Laurel Dewey. One story - "You're only as Sick as your Secrets" - combines an unexplained death, a touching love story, a teen's shattered life, and a "sick secret." The author's explanation of what may lead to the murder of a spouse is succinct but expressive: "a boiling hot explosion wrapped in a blinding primal frenzy."

    These short stories may remind a reader of 1940 detective radio dramas - if they've ever had the pleasure of listening to one. Dewey's characters are larger than life with exaggerated qualities. The drama draws the reader briefly into a mysterious crime world, letting the reader enjoy the story during any short break in their day.

    more from this reviewer

    I'll be keeping this on my shelf for a wintry afternoon reread!

    Case files. Looking back over her career Jane recounts some of her more bizarre cases.

    When no part of a person's career could be called common pulling the bizarre can only be intriguing.

    These were all good but the last one was awesome!
