  • Ferociously Intense! Exhilarating! Brilliant!

    Hank Phillipi Ryan’s triangular approach that is used to introduce each character to us in “The Murder List” was a winning combination. It was such a wicked playing field! So ferociously intense you didn’t know who you could trust! Such a beautiful gift in a thriller! Rachel is a Howard Law Student married to Jack, one of the finest Defense Attorney’s in Boston. Rachel must work with Jack’s nemesis, Assistant District Attorney, Martha to complete her internship for Law School. Deliciously intense! It is so thrilling..you will not want to stop reading! Rachel wants to get on the Murder List. To be part of the team defending the people being accused of murder. But. How do you get on this List? Is there more than one type of Murder List??? This story is nothing short of exhilarating! I was taken away with the courtroom drama, political games, and crimes. Everything had me gripped to the pages....Hank Phillipi Ryan truly has a gift for writing the riveting novel with twists you don’t expect and one that you certainly do not want to put down until you get to the very. last. word. And, then you have to sit...and absorb everything you just read. Brilliant! This book was given to me in exchange for a fair and honest review.

  • COMPELLING SUSPENSE!

    Once you start reading @hankpryan’s THE MURDER LIST, you won’t want to stop until you’ve read the last word! It’s that compelling! Her characters are perfect for this plot - all are complex, some are endearing, some are underrated, some are evil & at least one is the queen of manipulation and cunning. The setting is around the State House in Boston, MA, the Offices of the Senate President and the homes of people involved in the main case as well as two other cases that seem to be relevant. The plot is suspenseful and and will keep you intrigued and guessing until the very end. The conclusion will blow you away! I was provided an ARC of this book by Forge Books and NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.

  • The murder list

    I really enjoyed the writing style and I enjoyed the story The thing I liked the least was it was wrapped up far too quickly at the end. I hate books that drags out the story and then it ends very quickly I would give the author another chance but if the same thing happened that would be it for me

  • Keeps you guessing until the end

    This is what I said about the sneak peek of The Murder List: “No surprise, but it looks like author Hank Phillippi Ryan has done it again. If this sneak peek of The Murder List is any indication, you will be flipping pages as fast as you can when the book is released. I thoroughly enjoy Ryan’s Charlotte McNally and Jane Ryland series, but with her standalones Trust Me and now The Murder List she has ramped things up a notch and joined my favorite authors like Lisa Scottoline, Karin Slaughter and Sarah Pinborough for heart-stopping suspense, well developed characters and a strong plot. Even in this sneak peek I have a sense of dread and uncertainty from the very start. What exactly happened in Rachel’s past? She seems smart and capable but there’s something I can’t put my finger on, and she seems to defer to, or sidestep or almost be intimidated by her husband Jack. I don’t really like him and I’m not sure I trust him to have Rachel’s best interests at heart. And her new boss? What a cast of characters. Can’t wait for the release of the full book. I know I’m going to read it in one sitting and love it.” Well, the full book was just as thrilling as that glimpse promised it would be. I had that feeling of unease throughout. I wasn’t sure who to trust or who to be loyal to. At the beginning I didn’t like Jack at all, and Martha really did seem like the Devil. But turns out there are no real heroes here. Not even Rachel. They all have so much history – with each other, with other cases, with other situations, with other people – that the story keeps magnificently twisting and turning and I was always off balance. My allegiance to, and fear of, these characters kept changing. I didn’t know who I could believe. No one was all bad, but no one was all good either. Did past events justify their present behavior? What was their real motivation for their actions? The Murder List is one heck of a story. In-depth character studies and detail about events both past and present mixed with courtroom drama and in-the-field excitement. The secondary characters are as baffling as Jack, Rachel and Martha: Tom, Logan, Nina, Dani. So credible and sincere on the one hand, but then . . . something just doesn’t add up. This was a great mystery laced with manipulation, politics, murder, obsession and suspense, one that keep me turning pages as fast as I could, guessing and then guessing again, as layer after layer was uncovered. Author Hank Phillippi Ryan has done it again – written a thrilling story that weaves around and around, pulling all the threads together to provide a very satisfying conclusion. Thanks to Forge Books and NetGalley for providing an advance copy for my honest review. I loved The Murder List as much as I thought I would, and I heartily recommend it.

  • A thriller with a very surprising ending!

    Set in Boston, "The Murder List" is a list of lawyers who act as public defenders for accused murderers. Jack, a high profile defense counsel, often opposes Martha, a DA, in the courtroom, and they've become competitors. When Martha hires Jack's wife Rachel, a third year Harvard law student, for a summer job in the DA's office, Jack is displeased and questions her motives. But all is not what it seems . . . While this novel moved well for about 60% of the story, I found the last part of the book a bit tedious. That said, readers will be surprised by this novel's ending.
