Hank Phillippi Ryan has won five Agatha awards, in addition to the Anthony, Macavity, Daphne du Maurier and Mary Higgins Clark awards for her best-selling mystery novels. As an investigative reporter, her work has resulted in new laws passed, criminals sent to prison, homes saved from foreclosure and millions of dollars made in restitution for victims and consumers. Along with her 34 Emmys and 14 Edward R. Murrow awards, Ryan has received dozens of other honors for her groundbreaking journalism. A former president of Sisters in Crime and founder of Mystery Writers of America University, she lives in Boston with her husband, a nationally renowned civil rights and criminal defense attorney. “Trust Me” (Forge) is her newest book.
