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.
