This world is evil.
My mother used to tell me that evil only comes to those who are looking for it, and maybe she was right.
Corruption and death walk hand and hand in this town. I refuse to give in, but giving up seems to be my only option.
As a detective, I've seen enough killing for ten lifetimes, and now, leaving is the only way to keep my sanity.
I never thought that my last case while training my replacement would have a stranglehold on me personally.
It's like the Hangman is placing the noose around my neck, and the rope is only getting tighter.

This is book 1 of a 6 book series. You will need to read the other books to finish the story.

    Was really good until I reached the “end” and saw “to be continued “. Not what I signed up for.

    Great characters, gruesome serial killer, well thought out plot. So why the low rating? The book leaves you hanging (no pun intended), and not in a good way...more like buying the next book gets you the end of book 1. I thought that went out of style a while back. Won’t be buying any more of W L Knightly’s books.

    Get ready for the newest creation by the duo that makes up WL Knightly. In this new story, we are introduced to two detectives at the opposite end of the spectrum. Jake has been a cop a long time, and he’s seen too much. Jo is just getting started in her career, and is eager to jump in with both feet. When their boss throws them together on a case, as partners and with Jo meant to replace Jake, neither could have expected what was thrown at them. There’s a killer on the loose, one that has turned a childhood letter game into a gruesome game that has even hardened cops shuddering. If you were a fan of the Zodiac series, you’ll enjoy this. If you haven’t read those, you should, and you should read this one! The writing is this one is faster paced, but I suspect that’s because there are going to be less books in the series. This first book sets the scene, and creates a world that has you ready to find out more. Who is the killer? Why? And how does he know so much private information? You’ll be ready to find out more! In full disclosure, I read this in exchange for an honest review.

    If you've read the Zodiac series, you'll know that this duo writes an amazing mystery/suspense/thriller story. I wasn't sure this was going to be as good and suspenseful as that, but it's even better. This has corruption, crooked cops, vigilantes and more questions than answers. Detective Jake Thomas has seen more than anyone should have and is ready to retire. He just has one last job and a new trainee who is bright and eager to start. Jo Calloway is excited to be a detective but Jake is moody and intimidating and now that they have a new case, they are in a race to find a killer who is killing crooked politicians. I'm loving this story that is tense and suspenseful. With this first book we're given a lot of clues and I'm anxiously awaiting the next book. I expect the next book will be just as puzzling. A great new series by a proven duo that will keep you guessing until the very end. Highly recommended. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).
  • Silent Crime Hangman #1

    By Qab854
    A suspenseful storyline with fantastic characters that kept me on the edge of my seat. This does end with a cliffhanger but will definitely make you want to read the next book. Jake is a detective who has turned in his notice after being on the force for many years. Jo is the new detective to replace Jake. She is detail oriented, takes her work home and determined to solve the hangman serial killings. W. L. Knightly is an exceptional writer who grabs your attention from beginning to end. The details written for the storyline and characters makes you feel like you are there with them experiencing everything they are. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
