Hank Phillippi Ryan
Even though this is not Ms. Ryan's most current book, nor my latest read of one of my favorite suspense writers, this was my FIRST book that I read by Hank Phillippi Ryan. In one of the General Fiction month long reads that I miss so much, Hank joined us on a daily basis as we sleuthed our way through this wonderful who-dun-it. She charmed us just as readily with her wit as she does with her writing style and her news journalistic style to the greater Boston, MA area. During that month I, like the rest of the group came to appreciate who Hank truly was and how the uniqueness of her job provided her with the fodder to fill an ongoing series of books with titillating and harrowing stories of a feisty reporter and a curmudgeonly old (?) detective to solve the unsolvable crimes they encountered . I was hooked. We have stayed in contact and have shared several additional books since, but I thought I would share this, my first encounter and review of a fabulous sleuth.
