Say No More: The Thrilling Next Installment in Hank Phillippi Ryan's Award-Winning Jane Ryland Series!
When Boston reporter Jane Ryland reports a hit and run, she soon learns she saw more than a car crash—she witnessed the collapse of an alibi. Working on an expose of sexual assaults on college campuses for the station’s new documentary unit, Jane’s just convinced a date rape victim to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. However, a disturbing anonymous message—SAY NO MORE—has Jane really and truly scared.
Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. Her year as a college guest lecturer just ended at the bottom of her swimming pool in the tight-knit and tight-lipped Boston community called The Reserve. As Jake chips his way through a code of silence as shatterproof as any street gang, he’ll learn that one newcomer to the neighborhood may have a secret of her own.
A young woman faces a life-changing decision—should she go public about her assault? Jane and Jake—now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world—are both on a quest for answers as they try to balance the consequences of the truth.

At the start of Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Ryan's engrossing fifth Jane Ryland novel (after 2015's What You See), the Boston-based investigative journalist witnesses a hit-and-run. Jane calls in the perpetrator's plate number, but the car's owner insists he's innocent, earning Jane an invitation to testify in court. When Jane receives an anonymous note warning her to "say no more," she's uncertain whether the threat pertains to the accident or her in-progress expos about campus rape. Meanwhile, Jane's almost-fianc , homicide detective Jake Brogan, works to take down the Sholto crime family and investigates the suspicious death of Avery Morgan, a Hollywood screenwriter turned adjunct college professor whose corpse was found floating in her swimming pool. Ryan uses a complex, multifaceted plot to deliver an unflinching look at college sexual assault and examine the "hard line between journalism and law enforcement." The tension mounts as the action builds to a conclusion that thrills and gratifies. Five-city author tour.
