The Murder List: A Novel of Suspense (Hardcover)
"An exhilarating thrill ride that keeps you turning pages.. Ryan deftly delivers a denouement as shocking as it is satisfying."--Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish and The Last Time I Saw You
Law student Rachel North will tell you, without hesitation, what she knows to be true. She's smart, she’s a hard worker, she does the right thing, she’s successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, a lion of Boston's defense bar, and her internship with the Boston DA's office is her ticket to a successful future.
Problem is--she’s wrong.
And in this cat and mouse game--the battle for justice becomes a battle for survival.

“Utterly absorbing! Like a nesting doll, The Murder List contains secrets within secrets and twists within twists. Hank Phillippi Ryan is a master working at the top of her game.” — Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied
"What I love most about Hank Phillippi Ryan's novels is that you never (ever!) know which characters you can trust—but you can always trust that you're in good hands with this expert storyteller. What starts as an unsettling undercurrent grows into the kind of tension no reader can walk away from. Deftly mining the gray area between right and wrong, erroneous and inevitable, innocent and guilty, The Murder List is twisty, unpredictable, and utterly irresistible: Suspense at its finest." —Jessica Strawser, author of Not That I Could Tell
