For a night of mystery, murder, and intrigue, join us at Mysterious Galaxy as we host La Jolla Writers Conference keynote speakers Dr. D.P. Lyle, and Hank Phillippi Ryan in discussion.
D.P. Lyle, MD is a bestselling author of both fiction and non-fiction works. He has been the recipient of the Macavity Silver Award, Benjamin Franklin Silver Award, USA Today Best Book Award, and many others. His works of fiction include the Dub Walker, Samantha Cody, and Jake Longly series, as well as the media tie-in novels for the television series “Royal Pains.” For the past forty years, he has also practiced Cardiology in Orange County, California, during which he leant his medical expertise with numerous novelists and writers of popular television shows like “CSI: Miami, Monk, Diagnosis Murder,” and others. A-List, the second novel in the Jake Longly series, follows Jake and his girlfriend Nicole Jamison as they are asked to help A-list actor Kirk Ford when he wakes up next to the corpse of a college co-ed, who happens to be the niece of a local mafioso. Jake must defend himself from mafia muscle, outraged family, and drug dealers in order to find out who really killed the girl, and who would want to frame Kirk?
During Hank Phillippi Ryan’s forty years as a reporter, she has gone undercover, been wired with hidden cameras, and has had to pursue various criminals. Hank has had to report facts and uncover truths for so long, as she herself said in her website bio, “when I typed chapter one on my first book I wondered: would my imagination allow me to make stuff up?” Hank quickly discovered that just like an investigative story, writing fiction is all about telling a good story, for which her years as a reporter has already prepared her. In her latest and first stand-alone novel, Trust Me, an accused killer and a grieving journalist make an unlikely alliance as one claims their innocence and the other tries to rebuild their shattered life. Fellow author Megan Miranda has called Trust Me “Chilling, suspenseful, and impossible to put down.”
Trust Me is the chilling standalone novel of psychological suspense and manipulation that award-winning author and renowned investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan was born to write.
