There Was An Old Woman
A novel of psychological suspense, in which a young woman returns to the quirky Bronx riverfront neighborhood where she grew up to find her mother’s house in chaos. As Evie digs into the events of the past few months, a sinister thriller unfolds. A story of trust, betrayal, deception and madness.
Award-winning Author Hank Phillippi Ryan:
“Haunting. Compelling. And beautifully written. This insidiously creepy and eerily sinister tale twists and turns with suspense–and a surprise around every corner. Hallie Ephron is the queen of secrets–and the star of suburban noir.”
