cover of Say No More by Hank Phillippi Ryan

“A thrilling ride--and a thrilling heroine!” -- Louise Penny

We are very excited to announce that, through the generosity of our mothership's Speakers' Bureau program, we will have the honour of presenting five-time Agatha Award-winning author Hank Phillippi Ryan.

Ryan is the on-air investigative reporter for Boston's NBC affiliate. She's won 33 Emmy awards, 14 Edward R. Murrow awards and dozens of other honors for her groundbreaking journalism. A bestselling author of nine mystery novels, Ryan has won multiple prestigious awards for her crime fiction: five Agatha awards, two Anthony awards, the Daphne, two Macavity awards, and for her novel The Other Woman, Ryan won the coveted Mary Higgins Clark Award. National reviews have called her a "master at crafting suspenseful mysteries" and "a superb and gifted storyteller."

“All the right stuff! The pacing is furious, the characters are great fun, and the dialogue crackles.” -- Linwood Barclay
