Tuesday Excerpts

TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “THE MURDER LIST”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, originally hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea and now hosted by I’d Rather Be at the Beach; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is a new book from Hank Phillippi Ryan:  The Murder List.

 

***

Intro:  (Now)

We never fight.  Not in the past six years, as long as we’ve been married.  Not even in the months before that.  It isn’t that Jack is always right or I’m always right.  Usually our disagreements are about things that don’t matter, so it’s easier and quicker for me to acquiesce.  Jack’s a lawyer, so he likes to win.  It makes him happy.  And that’s good.

Teaser:  If the case against Nina fell through, that meant the murderer was still on the loose.  A chill rattled my entire body, and it wasn’t because of the weather (56%).

Synopsis:  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.

The Murder List is a new standalone suspense novel in the tradition of Lisa Scottoline and B. A. Paris from award-winning author and reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan.
