Mysterious Route 1

For 2016, the state centers for the book linked by US Route 1, from Maine to Florida, are joining together to promote mysteries set in their states!

Massachusetts Center for the Book recommends Hank Phillipi Ryan’s Truth Be Told, an Agatha Award winnMA_Truthbetold_tner and the third in the Jane Ryland series. The novel begins with the investigation of one suburban family’s eviction and quickly expands to matters of larger financial manipulations and cold cases that may be finally closing, all underscored by the desire to satisfy our fundamental need for shelter, for connection, for relationship.
