THE SILENT REPORTER LITERALLY STARTS OUT WITH A BANG THAT HOOKS YOU FOR THE DURATION. I READ THE PROLOGUE AND COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN AFTER THAT. ONCE AGAIN BIG BUSINESS IS INVOLVED IN A CONSPIRACY TO MAKE EVEN MORE MONEY FOR THE TOP EXECUTIVES. BUT THINGS DON’T ADD UP WITH THE INVESTIGATION OF A SUICIDE AND A CRYPTIC MESSAGE FROM THE MAN’S DIARY. SO MUCH MORE IS UNCOVERED IN THE SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH AND JUSTICE.
A reporter investigates the suicide of his professor, only to stumble upon a conspiracy that is bigger than he had imagined.
Hyder Ali, a Muslim-American, is working as a reporter for the Daily Times. Eric Freeland, his old professor and mentor, is found hanging inside his home. Freeland’s daughter, Jessica, shows up asking for Hyder’s help. She believes her father was murdered.
Detective Tom Nolan is assigned the Freeland case. He is an alcoholic who would rather sit in a bar and get drunk than work on the case.
What looks like an apparent suicide soon turns into something more sinister when Hyder, Jessica, and Nolan begin searching for the truth.
