Publisher's summary

Award-winning and Boston Globe bestselling author Hank Phillippi Ryan presents a spine-chilling, heart-wrenching suspense novel that explores a terrifying scenario striking at the heart of every family.

Does a respected adoption agency have a frightening secret? Tipped off by a determined ex-colleague on a desperate quest to find her birth mother, Boston newspaper reporter Jane Ryland begins to suspect that the agency is engaging in the ultimate betrayal—reuniting birth parents with the wrong children.

For detective Jake Brogan and his partner, a young woman's brutal murder seems a sadly predictable case of domestic violence, one that results in two toddlers being shuttled into the foster care system. Then Jake finds an empty cradle at the murder scene. Where is the baby who should have been sleeping there?

Jane and Jake are soon on a trail full of twists and turns that takes them deep into the heart of a foster care system in crisis and threatens to blow the lid off an adoption agency scandal. When the threatening phone calls start, Jane knows she is on the right track…but with both a killer at large and an infant missing, time is running out….

The Wrong Girl is a riveting novel of familial relationships—both known and unknown—vile greed, senseless murder, and the ultimate in deception. What if you didn't know the truth about your own family?

Critic reviews

“Narrator Kadushin has a great sense of timing, a pretty voice, and the ability to express emotion without overdoing it.” —Christian Science Monitor


“Kadushin's powerful voice takes the listener on a suspense-filled romp, expertly matching cadence to the story as it unfolds. Sometimes it is just a pause that highlights the sexual electricity between Ryland and Brogan; sometimes it is the speed with which the words come tumbling out that elicit the feelings of danger and excitement in this spellbinding mystery.” —Booklist

“Kadushin… narrates the fast-paced yarn with a whispery, breathy vocal that intrigues, adding a touch of mystery and secret-spilling gossip to the mix.” —Mystery Scene

Multiple storylines converge for an excellent read

Multiple mysteries draw you in and as Jane pulls the threads to figure out where they lead, she finds herself entwined in a large knot of inconsistencies that keep her pulling for the truth. Unfortunately she is also following the threads into greater peril with someone who obviously does not want her to find the truth. Well plotted and intriguing to keep you entertained, but the characters definitely make the stories come to life and keep you wanting more. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!
