HANK PHILLIPPI RYAN: It's just happened, almost overnight. Something's in the air here in Boston--change, and potential, and the fabulous blue sky with that waft of salt air, and in the evenings the crickets going crazy. (And a special gift for you! Read on.) I cannot believe it's almost fall! Jonathan and I got blankets and flattened ourselves on our driveway, after midnight of course, and watched the Perseid meteor shower. Which turned out to be less than a shower, but still fabulous, and inspiring--it's the perfect moment, isn't it, to realize the endless wonder of the universe we inhabit. And I made a big wish.
You know, the night Jonathan and I met was also the night of the Perseids. And I'll never forget the wish I made that night. (I can't tell you that one...)
I wish I could tell you the wish I made back then was for you to buy the brand new just-released today paperback version of TRUTH BE TOLD. That would have been cool, and impressive, since that falling star wish was twenty years go (in our time at least) and TRUTH BE TOLD was not even a glimmer in my head.
But here in the light of day, I'm wishing like crazy. TRUTH BE TOLD won the Agatha Award (hurray! that's amazing) for Best Contemporary novel, and was named a Library Journal Best Book of 2014. Two of my favorite starred reviews ever: from Booklist: "In Ryan's adroit hands, even foreclosures can be sexy!" From Library Journal, "Drop everything and binge read!"
So yes, hurray, it's in paperback now! Today! And I do wish you'd look for it. It's the perfect beach-airplane-vacation-weekend thriller! (Click here if you're interested…)
And here's a special offer: if you send me proof of purchase of TRUTH BE TOLD here, (just click on contact, it comes right to me) I'll send you an autographed paperback of THE OTHER WOMAN. Whoa.
(US only, please, and while supplies last!)
There’s nothing like the relentlessly moving days until a new book, you know? WHAT YOU SEE already got a starred review from Library Journal, and a coveted TOP PICK from RTBook Reviews, which calls it "exceptional suspense!' (PREORDER here.)
And hey. With every TRUTH BE TOLD or WHAT YOU SEE you buy--you get another special gift from me and the Perseids. One of your wishes will come true. Yup, it will. And I cannot wait to hear about it.
