Featured New Release: THE WRONG GIRL by Hank Phillippi Ryan

The Wrong Girl  

 

Overview

 

 

Award-winning and Boston Globe bestselling author Hank Phillippi Ryan presents a spine-chilling, heart-wrenching suspense novel that explores a terrifying scenario striking at the heart of every family.

 

Does a respected adoption agency have a frightening secret? Tipped off by a determined ex-colleague on a desperate quest to find her birth mother, Boston newspaper reporter Jane Ryland begins to suspect that the agency is engaging in the ultimate betrayal—reuniting birth parents with the wrong children.

 

For detective Jake Brogan and his partner, a young woman’s brutal murder seems a sadly predictable case of domestic violence, one that results in two toddlers being shuttled into the foster care system. Then Jake finds an empty cradle at the murder scene. Where is the baby who should have been sleeping there?

 

Jane and Jake are soon on a trail full of twists and turns that takes them deep into the heart of a foster care system in crisis and threatens to blow the lid off an adoption agency scandal. When the threatening phone calls start, Jane knows she is on the right track…but with both a killer at large and an infant missing, time is running out….

 

The Wrong Girl is a riveting novel of familial relationships—both known and unknown—vile greed, senseless murder, and the ultimate in deception. What if you didn’t know the truth about your own family?

LIBRARY JOURNAL Says: Stellar!

"Stellar follow-up to The Other Woman. Jane and Jake are engaging protagonists, and the will-they-or-won't-they tension will appeal to romance fans. The thrills are also abundant, and the plot takes a left turn when the reader is sure it's going right. Ryan has a gift for writing superb thrillers, and this one is sure to be a big hit..."
   —Library Journal

"Investigative television reporter Ryan fulfills the promise of her first Jane Ryland mystery The Other Woman (2012), as she blends a social issue—the cost to young children of an overworked and underfunded foster care system—into a crisp, fast-moving police procedural featuring reverberating illegalities, increasing danger and suspense, and crackling sexual tension... Another winner from Ryan."
   —Booklist Starred Review
 

The Wrong Girl

"The Wrong Girl has all the right stuff! The pacing is furious, the characters are great fun, and the dialogue crackles."
   —Linwood Barclay, International bestselling author of Trust Your Eyes

"Whip-smart writing and a dizzying pace make The Wrong Girl a thrilling read!"
   —Tess Gerritsen, NYT bestselling author of Last To Die
