THE WRONG GIRL

by Ryan, Hank Phillippi

Investigative reporter Jane Ryland returns in the exciting second installment of Hank Phillippi Ryan's bestselling crime series. As she investigates the murder of an unknown woman who is survived by two very young children, Jane uncovers a dangerous child-trafficking plot whose perpetrators will stop at nothing to cover their tracks.

Investigative reporter Jane Ryland returns in the exciting second installment of Hank Phillippi Ryan's bestselling crime series. Jane is called to report on the murder of an unknown woman who is survived by two very young children found in the same home. Who bludgeoned this woman to death-- only to leave behind the innocent little ones, too young to be reliable witnesses? Jane starts searching for the identity of the dead woman and the surviving kids, while trying to avoid the charms of handsome Detective Jake Brogan, who is in charge of the case. She uncovers an illegal, highly profitable web of child trafficking. And the dangerous situation may involve one of her own friends. In a story where the littlest victims are unable to defend themselves, Jane is compelled to put her life on the line to find the perpetrators.

Hank Phillippi Ryan has written four suspense novels (published by Mira) and has received the Anthony, Agatha and Macavity awards and praise from her peers, including Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky, Suzanne Brockmann and Carla Neggers. She is also a Boston-based reporter, and has won 27 Emmys and 10 Edward R. Murrow awards for her investigative reporting—first-hand experience that she brings to her gripping fiction.
