Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 isnt content to work on her assigned puff pieces, and finds herself tracking down a candidates 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—itll take a lot more than votes to win this election.

Review:

"In this lightweight murder thriller, Ryan (Drive Time and three other mysteries featuring Boston TV investigative reporter Charlotte 'Charlie' McNally) introduces Jane Ryland, a former Boston TV investigative reporter, who left Channel 11 in disgrace and is now working as a newspaper reporter. Jane is covering a U.S. Senate race while her desk mate has the more exciting beat, writing about a serial murderer known as the Bridge Killer. Jane spends significant time thinking about the possibilities of her romantic life, dwelling on the various attractions of her cop friend, Det. Jake Brogan; her newspaper editor, Alex Wyatt; and a cute guy campaign worker, Trevor Kiernan. Jane's campaign reporting soon mixes with the hunt for the serial killer. Misunderstandings, misconceptions, mistaken identities, missed opportunities, and, most egregiously, missed cellphone calls generate more tedium than suspense. Those who care about what Jane is wearing and who she thinks is hot will be most rewarded. Agent: Lisa Gallagher, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
