Summoned under mysterious circumstances to meet Jake Lawrence, one of the world’s richest entrepreneurs, Angela Day may be on the threshold of a brighter future. The reclusive multibillionaire is planning a takeover of a hot, new company—and he wants Angela to apply her considerable skills in banking to make sure it all goes smoothly . . . and secretly. In exchange, Lawrence promises to use his formidable influence to permanently reunite Angela with her son, whom she lost in a custody battle to her adulterous, connected ex-husband. It’s the one reward for which Angela would risk everything. But with enormous wealth and power comes the ultimate price tag. For enemies everywhere have marked the man for death. And anyone close to him—namely, Angela Day—is fair game.

Praise For Silent Partner

“Harrowing . . . Frey enlivens finance the way Patricia Cornwell does forensic science and the way Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) does medieval studies.”

Los Angeles Times Book Review

“DANGER AND DECEPTION DOMINATE . . . A worthy counterpart to Frey’s previous bestselling novels.”
—New York Daily News

“SPRINGS PLENTY OF SURPRISES . . . In Silent Partner, the villains are seldom what they seem—nor are the heroes.”
Orlando Sentinel

“Plenty of sexual intrigue, violence, and villainy . . . [Frey is] to be lauded for spotlighting the prickly issue of corporate racism. Silent Partner is a solid piece of work that hits all its marks right on cue.”
BookStreet USA

Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

“[A] quick page-turner . . . Thriller fans will find it hard to resist.”
