Murder Among Friends

Hank is Coming! Hank is Coming! Hank is Coming!

Hank Phillippi Ryan with Book Cover for Say No More

Hank has become a dear friend to our Murder Among Friends mystery discussion group, and has been so kind as to visit us when we read her first mystery, and then again, when we started her terrific suspense series featuring investigative reporter Jane Ryland. She will be catching up with the group as we talk about the latest book in this series, Say No More – named a Best of 2016 book by Library Journal.

In Say No More, the fifth Jane Ryland novel, as fast as we get answers to some burning questions from the previous book, Jane is entangled in another high stakes case.  

When she reports a hit and run, she soon learns she saw more than a car crash--she witnessed the collapse of an alibi, and now she's under pressure to tell all to the police. She's also digging up the inside scoop for an expose of sexual assaults on Boston's college campuses for the station's new documentary unit, and is working with a victim to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. But, a disturbing anonymous message--SAY NO MORE--has Jane really and truly scared. 

Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. As Jake chips his way through a code of silence as shatterproof as any street gang, he'll learn that one newcomer to the neighborhood may have a secret of her own. 

A young woman faces a life-changing decision--should she go public about her assault? What's really going on behind closed doors at a prestigious Boston college? And when will the killer strike again? Jane and Jake--now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world--are both on a high-stakes quest for answers. Can they handle the consequences of the truth?

 This is a rare opportunity for our community’s mystery readers and aspiring fiction writers to talk about a great book, while learning some of the tricks of the writing trade, and get an inside view of investigative journalism -- with an outstanding, New York Times best-selling author. Please join us for one of the biggest events in our Mystery year!
