TRUTH BE TOLD is a Library Journal Editor's Pick! Kirkus praises TRUTH BE TOLD as "engrossing and knotty" and Publishers Weekly raves, "Smart, well-paced... Ryan, a Mary Higgins Clark Award winner, cleverly ties the plot together, offers surprising but believable plot twists, and skillfully characterizes the supporting cast... just the right amount of romance."

And I'll be all over the country for TRUTH BE TOLD this fall—check my schedule for an event near you!

And hey—have you been having a wonderful summer? I cannot believe how quickly it's going by! It started auspiciously, I must say—I won two Emmys for investigative reporting. (Yes, that makes 32. I do love my job! And hey, if you have any story ideas, send 'em along!) I also had the joy of speaking to a SRO crowd at NYC's prestigious Center for Fiction.

Center for Fiction

Meanwhile, it's been wildlife city in our backyard! I got a great shot of this baby rabbit. (Luckily our gardens have only flowers, not veggies.)

The raccoons got chased out of our roof. (Sigh, look at this guy!)

Flo and Eddy

And in good animal news, Flo and Eddy and their colleagues came before our pool finally opened. These ducks are so dear to my heart. They have arrived in our back yard, so faithfully, every spring for fifteen years! We look forward to them so much. As you can see, they're now bringing friends.

Happy summer! And I hope you spend it with THE WRONG GIRL. (You know what I mean.)

With endless gratitude and affection,
