September 10th at 7pm – Virtual Author Talk – Hank Phillippi Ryan

Bestselling and award-winning author and investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan delivers another twisty, thrilling cat and mouse novel of suspense that will have you guessing, and second-guessing, and then gasping with surprise in The First to Lie.

After a devastating betrayal, a young woman sets off on an obsessive path to justice, no matter what dark family secrets are revealed. But she doesn’t know that she isn’t the only one plotting revenge. There’s an affluent daughter of privilege, a glamorous manipulative wannabe, a determined reporter who is in too deep, and a grieving widow who has to choose her new reality. Who will be the first to lie? And when the stakes are life and death, do a few lies really matter?
