Publisher Description

A heart-racing new psychological thriller from USA Today bestselling and multiple award-winning author, Hank Phillippi Ryan.

One wrong word can ruin your life. And no one knows that better than savvy crisis management expert Arden Ward. Problem is, she's now forced to handle a shocking crisis of her own. Unfairly accused of having an affair with a powerful client, Arden’s life and dreams are about to crash and burn. Then, Arden is given an ultimatum. She has just two weeks to save her career and her reputation.

Is Cordelia Bannister the answer to her prayers?

Cordelia needs Arden’s help for her husband Ned, a Boston real estate mogul. Though he was recently acquitted in a fatal drunk driving accident, his reputation is ruined, and the fallout is devastating not only to the Bannisters' lives, but the lives of their two adorable children.

Arden devotes her skill and determination—and maybe her final days on the job—to helping this shattered family, but soon, revelations begin to emerge about what really happened the night of the accident. And then—another car crash throws Ned back into the spotlight.

This case is Arden’s final chance to protect her own future and clear her name. But the more she tries to untangle the truth, the more she’s haunted by one disturbing question—what if she’s also protecting a killer?

Gossip. Lies. Rumors. Words like that can hurt you. And Arden knows the reality. Sometimes one wrong word can kill.

MONEY, SEX, AND POWER!

Hank Phillipi Ryan has finely turned her talents into writing instant best-selling psychological thrillers. I highly recommend her latest release, One Wrong Word. From the first paragraph, Ryan quickly engages readers in her plot. It is a story everyone can identify with: someone saying one wrong word about you, and you think you can never outlive it.

Ryan begins her novel by giving readers a word: “Joy” That word will continue as a thread throughout the story. Is it the wrong word? That is for you the reader to decide as you read this fast-paced thriller permeated with murder, deceit, family drama, greed, malice, and depravity. Ryan masterfully builds this story with larger-than-life characters that keep you guessing who is truthful, who is a liar, and whodunit.

If you want to know a person's true character, observe how they handle these three areas of their life – money, sex, and power. In One Wrong Word, Ryan shows how these three traits affect her characters, their families, their decisions, their friends, their professions, and their futures. Money, sex, and power – each can wreak havoc by themselves, put the three together and they become all-consuming. Ryan is at her best in developing the psychological relationships between her characters. In my opinion, this is Ryan’s best work to date.
