Angela Day has survived a rough past--from a hard-scrabble childhood scarred by the tragic deaths of her father and best friend, to losing custody of her only child to her adulterous ex-husband and his powerful family. But despite it all, at thirty-one, she's carved out a good career with Sumter Bank one of Richmond, Virginia's most venerable institutions. And now, summoned under mysterious circumstances to meet one of the world's richest entrepreneurs, it looks as if Angela may be on the threshold of a brighter future. "If you help me, I'll help you." This is Jake Lawrence's offer to Angela. A stock-holder in Sumter Bank, the reclusive multibillionaire is planning a takeover of a hot, new company--and he wants Angela to apply her considerable skills and charms to make sure it all goes smoothly ... and secretly. In exchange, Lawrence promises to use his formidable influence to permanently reunite Angela with her son. For Angela, it's the one reward for which she would risk everything. And accepting Jake Lawrence's deal will mean doing just that, as his mind-boggling wealth and power come with the ultimate price tag: enemies everywhere have marked him for death. And anyone close to him is fair game. Now, as Angela prepares to broker the deal of her career, she's stalked by foes on every front. Then, after stumbling on evidence of an insidious conspiracy within her own company, she becomes a target for termination. Armed with the most volatile kind of inside information, Angela has the power to bring the dirtiest players down from the highest places. But they have the power to strike first--at the one thing most precious to Angela.… (mais)

When I started to read this I was sure it was going to be one of those books that I could not get into. I was so wrong! After the first few pages, I could not put the book down. The story twists and turns and you are not sure where you are going to end up! All I knew was that I was rooting for the main character in the book. Such a great read! ( )

One of the wealthiest men in the world has a job opening. He needs a smart, athletic, beautiful woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. How very original? He finds a woman who fills the bill and more.

Silent Partner is entertaining, but like a fairy tale that you have heard several dozen times, it is also predictable. I enjoyed the easy plot, even though it was silly.

This is a commuter book. Little concentration is required to follow the plot. At the end of the tale you will have been entertained and will chuckle to yourself when you remember that I warned you that Silent Partner is predictable and silly. ( )

Angela's life was disected completely by the reclusive billionair and in turn by the bank where she worked. Her son was awarded to the father, because of his families great wealth. The billionair wanted her to be his partner in a deal. All the time she thought she was being driven by the ranch hand, it was really the billionair. ( )
