We’re delighted to host the launch of Hank’s new stand-alone thriller, THE MURDER LIST! Based on a real institution to which Ryan's husband belongs, the Murder List is a rotating group of top defense attorneys who represent disadvantaged clients accused of murder on a pro bono basis. The Murder list attorneys are dreaded by prosecutors because they go all out to defend their clients and and never make deals. Hank will discuss her new thriller, answer questions and sign books.
ABOUT THE BOOK:

She's smart, she’s a hard worker, she does the right thing, she’s successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, who is 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.
