For Immediate Release
Debut Author Awarded Best Book of 2008 by Publishers Weekly
No One Heard Her Scream - a chilling debut ripped from the headlines
New York, N.Y., (November 3, 2008) - This week Publishers Weekly announced the Best Books of 2008, naming Jordan Dane's NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM (Avon/HarperCollins, Apr 2008) as one of the five best in the Mass-Market category. Publishers Weekly stated, "Dane crafts this debut murder mystery with tight plotting and smooth prose, and adds a few sparks to create a story that appeals to mainstream thriller readers as well as romantic suspense fans."
Dane has received awards from thirty-three national writing contests. Her gritty suspense plots weave a tapestry of vivid settings, intrigue and dark humor. "Real crime inspires my work," she explains. "The idea behind my debut book came from the Natalee Holloway case and the online speculation that she was trafficked from Aruba since the island is close to Venezuela." In NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM, a San Antonio homicide detective is barred from the investigation into the abduction and murder of her sister. But when she finds skeletal remains buried in the wall of an old theatre are from a woman close to her sister's age, the hunt for a killer becomes a vendetta for justice.
Dane will release a new series starting with EVIL WITHOUT A FACE (Avon/HarperCollins, Feb 2009) in which an illusive web of imposters on the Internet lures a deluded teen from her Alaskan home. Dane explores a new kind of criminal organization in which enemy is faceless and hides behind an insidious global conspiracy. The new series will feature international settings and will focus on the lives and loves of three women-a bounty hunter operating outside the law, an ambitious vice cop, and a former international operative with a mysterious past.
