Home Run for Hank

My friend Hank Phillippi Ryan’s mystery novel, THE OTHER WOMAN, is out in paperback. It also contains the first three chapters of her next novel, THE WRONG GIRL.

No time like the present to find out why.

Also, Hank and her mates have a blog you definitely should check out: Jungle Red Writers. If you’re a mystery fan, you can’t go wrong.
