The Wrong Girl

Now SIX weeks on the Boston Globe bestseller list!

Award-winning and 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.

It's a trail 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. With a killer at large and an infant missing, time is running out...

"...a crisp, fast-moving police procedural featuring reverberating illegalities, increasing danger and suspense and crackling sexual tension...Another winner from Ryan."

"Ryan...knows her way around politics at high levels, and she uses that knowledge to fashion a revenge-fueled plot that twists and turns at breakneck speed. Political skullduggery and murder make a high-octane mix in this perfect thriller for an election season."
   —Booklist, Starred Review

"VERDICT: Ryan, the Anthony and Agatha Award-winning author...employs her investigative reporting and political background to craft a dizzying labyrinth of twists, turns, and surprises. Readers who crave mystery and political intrigue will be mesmerized by this first installment of her new series."
