Starred Reviews for The Other Woman
We are excited to welcome Anthony and Agatha Award–winning author Hank Phillippi Ryan to the Forge list with THE OTHER WOMAN, the first novel in a new series of political thrillers!
Newspaper reporter Jane Ryland isn’t content to work on her assigned puff pieces. Instead she begins tracking down a candidate’s secret mistress just days before a pivotal Senate election. Detective Jake Brogan is investigating a possible serial killer all the while plagued by a media swarm on his investigation. As the body count rises and the election looms closer, it becomes clear to Jane and Jake that their cases are connected.
"Ryan, the Anthony and Agatha Award–winning author of the Charlotte McNally mysteries, 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." -Library Journal (starred review)
"Political skulduggery and murder make a high-octane mix in this perfect thriller for an election season." -Booklist (starred review)
Ryan wrote a really great post for CriminalElement.com, Getting the Truth: Confessions of an Investigative Reporter, about the fear of being discovered with a hidden camera while undercover. They're also doing an ARC giveaway!
THE OTHER WOMAN will be available in September from Forge Books.
