We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Hank Phillippi Ryan’s novel, The Other Woman, has been nominated in the Edgars for the Mary Higgins Clark award!
The Edgars is put on by The Mystery Writers of America (MWA) and is widely acknowledged in the States to be the most prestigious awards in the genre of crime and mystery. The Mary Higgins Clark category is for books most closely written in the Mary Higgins Clark Tradition.
Among her guidelines is the presence of a clear, strong female protagonist. She should be self-made and independent and solve her problems by her own courage and intelligence. The main character and strong voice of Jane Ryland is one aspect of The Other Woman that particularly rallied us behind this book. We couldn’t be more proud of Hank and The Other Woman!
Congratulations from all of us here at Piatkus!
The Other Woman is available from Piatkus Entice now.
Jane Ryland was a rising star in television news . . . until she refused to reveal a source and lost everything. Now a disgraced newspaper reporter, Jane isn't content to work on her assigned puff pieces, and finds herself tracking down a candidate's secret mistress just days before a pivotal Senate election.
Detective Jake Brogan is investigating a possible serial killer. Twice, bodies of unidentified women have been found by a bridge, and Jake is plagued by a media swarm beginning to buzz about a 'bridge killer' hunting the young women of Boston.
As the body count rises and election looms closer, it becomes clear to Jane and Jake that their cases are connected . . . and that they may be facing a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to silence a scandal.
Dirty politics, dirty tricks and a barrage of final twists, The Other Woman is the first in an explosive new series by Hank Phillippi Ryan. Seduction, betrayal and murder - it'll take a lot more than votes to win this election.
