Praise for No One Heard Her Scream
"Jordan Dane crafts nail-biting thrillers with fully-realized but very damaged characters, and plots that twist and turn and double-back to bite the unwary. Her novels are 21st Noir with guts and heart and a wicked sense of humor."
Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of PATIENT ZERO
"...a dynamite debut... Dane's smooth style, believable characters and intense pacing will remind readers of Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner and Tami Hoag. While Dane's debut is being marketed as romantic suspense, it crosses over into plain thriller country: the tight plotting and the male characters are exceptional, bad guys and good."
"A new romantic suspense talent has arrived, and readers are going to experience back-to-back releases of her first three books. Pulling no punches with this exciting debut, Dane quickly establishes her credentials as a promising new star. A tough, driven heroine and a sexy, mysterious hero give this story plenty of cutting-edge action and riveting suspense. HOT."
Romantic Times Book ReviewsFour StarsA Compelling Page Turner
"This is a superb police procedural with enough of a romance between Becca and Diego to enhance the investigation. Becca is a strong protagonist who knows she is over the edge and wonders whose side Diego is on. Fans will enjoy the exciting first No One tale as the lead pair each has hidden agendas that come before any feelings they might have for one another."
Midwest Book Review
"Jordan Dane is a new voice in the realm of suspense and it's easy to see why from the first page. No One Heard Her Scream is an out of control freight train with enough twists and turns to please any suspense novel fan."
Gary RoenSt. Cloud In The News
"Terrific debut. Jordan Dane has got the goods and she delivers them with a knock out ending. Another great new author to watch."
Crimespree Magazine, March/April 2008, The Buzz Box
"The first NO ONE romantic suspense thriller is an exciting police procedural. Jordan Dane provides a powerful opening tale with two to follow."
Gumshoe ReviewA Literary InvestigationApril 2008
"Plenty of reviews will tell you what the book is about, but I want to talk about how this book made me feel. No One Heard Her Scream is in that category of book that you don't want to put down, yet should fate or the vagaries of life require you to, you can't stop thinking about it while you're doing other things. Not only will it interrupt your sleepin that delicious way thrillers dobut it will distract you as you do the dishes, drive to work, walk the dog. (Or, if you're me, you'll read and walk the dog at the same time!)
No One Heard Her Scream is fast-paced, with compelling characters and genuinely creepy villains. It grabs you by the throat from the first page and doesn't let go. Becca commands your attention through the wends and winds of her investigation of the death of a young woman found sealed up in a theatre wall even as the mysterious Diego commands hers. Through it all, this disappearance of her sister haunts and drives her. The multiple plots twist and weave, draw you in and hang on tight.
My recommendation? Start it when you know you've got enough time to finish it. And then, lucky you (and lucky me), Jordan Dane's next book is only a month away."
5 STARSAward Winning Author Bill Cameron
"Cold Case, hot romance, and one awesome suspense read from a debut author! Jordan Dane's debut novel is a smash hit. She shows the heights of what an author can do in the Romantic Suspense genre. Her lead character, Detective Becca Montgomery, reaches beyond herself to the victims of these horrific crimes. Her search for justiceto bring compassion to the families, to speak for the victims, and the look inside herself and her own painbrings an unexpected almost spiritual light, a kind of love brought to the pursuit of justice against crime. Even the villains are well developed and increasingly intriguing as Jordan Dane reveals the alliances that connect them. Despite its release early in the year, No One Heard Her Scream is already on my list of the top 2008 reads. Not only is Jordan Dane a welcome new voice but undoubtedly a future award winning author whose works will be marked in readers' heart for a place on their keeper shelves."

"Strokes every Nerve! This is a book that I could easily sum up with one word: Excellent. Excellent grit. Excellent vulnerability. Excellent suspense. And excellent voice. All neatly packaged in a drama that strokes every nerve and emotion. This is writing at its best. The kind that takes your emotions and intelligence on a wild ride and doesn't let go until its finished with you. And I don't think Jordan Dane is anywhere near finished with us."
Clover Autrey, author www.paranormalromance.org
"Ingenious plots, super twists and intricate turns is this mind boggling novel. The fact that the answer to the mystery is not easily fathomed is a mystery in itself, as the clues are cleverly disguised. I thought I had my finger on the culprit, but I was proved wrong. The characters are all well defined that I allowed myself to grow fond of one in particular! The novel is one to sink your teeth into. Dane fascinates and quickens the pulse. Readers will be kept in suspense. A great `who-dunnit' that Dane should be proud of."
Delores, Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance
"Jordan Dane blazes onto the scene with an incredibly powerful and intense book! No One Heard Her Scream is...guaranteed to wring emotions out of the reader. ...A fantastic suspense thriller...a powerful story of redemption. No One Heard Her Scream also brings to light a very dark crime...the descriptions are quite graphic and even a bit eerie as Jordan Dane paints some horrifically vivid pictures of this appalling crime. ...A tough read emotionally, but it is well worth each and every moment."
5 Klover ReviewDebbieCK2S Kwips and Kritiques
"Jordan Dane is a mistress of the metaphor and a sorceress of the simile. She uses words as a weapon and the pace never stops. Her characters and their personalities seem as if drawn by a modern day Chandler. Her sense of place is delightful as the flavor of San Antonio comes alive within the pages. This romantic suspenser is a must-read for the genre."
