A special story, a new book, a fabulous review, incredible buzz—
and a can't-miss-it drawing!

The summer days are flying by! And I hope you're stocked up on ice and sunscreen and your air conditioner is humming. We'll have to remember this when winter hits, huh? And summer is a great time to stretch out with a good read. If your TBR pile is threatening to topple, how about a short story?

On the House
Hank Phillippi Ryan

The Special Story and a New Book

When true love goes wrong—a woman's best friend is her dog. Or—is it?

"ON THE HOUSE," my Anthony, Agatha and Macavity-award winning short story is now available—starting today!—for your e-readers. Will you be able to guess the ending? And, as we say on TV, that's not all.

In this special edition of "On the House," I'm so excited to give you an exclusive first look at THE OTHER WOMAN, my new novel of suspense that's coming September 4 from Forge Books—so you get to be one of the first to read the book that everyone (I'm delighted to say!) is buzzing about. It's all about duplicity and deception and fraud and passion, revenge and the lust for power. As one character says: "You can choose your sin, but you cannot choose your consequences."

Find "On the House" and the excerpt from The Other Woman (for just 99¢!) on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iTunes.

A Fabulous Starred Review

Library Journal gives THE OTHER WOMAN a rave! A starred review saying:
"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."

Incredible Buzz for THE OTHER WOMAN

Linda Fairstein chooses THE OTHER WOMAN as a Today Show sizzling summer read!

Lisa Scottoline says "Riveting!"
Louise Penny says "Thrilling!"
Sandra Brown says "Wholly entertaining!"
Joe Finder says "Hank is a star!"
Carolyn Hart says "A thriller hot as tomorrow's headlines!"
Lee Child says "I knew Ryan was good—but I didn't know she was this good!"
