Find my killer.

Rachel Ryder's world is catapulted into chaos with the discovery of a dire note on her front door begging her to solve the murder of former MLB star, Ryan Hicks. Ryan Hicks, who is very much alive. Initially written off as a dark twist on a promotional campaign for his new charter school, the grim reality hits home when Rachel and partner, Rob Bishop, find Hicks's lifeless body in his lavish home, turning a dismissed warning into a desperate plea for justice.

As Rachel and Rob dive into the investigation, they quickly realize their understanding of the former MLB star turned public figure was merely surface-level. Their initial suspicions point to Hicks's ex-wife, leading them down a dark path marked by financial instability, clandestine opioid connections, and the remnants of a bitter divorce. With each complexity unearthed, the duo inches closer to a truth that is as unsettling as it is dangerous, uncovering a network of deceit that binds the town's most celebrated figures to its most criminal.

As the investigation deepens and the body count escalates, Rachel and Rob must race against time to unearth a betrayal so profound it threatens to unravel everything they hold dear. With stakes higher than ever, they must sift through lies and danger to bring a killer to justice before another victim falls.

Foul Play, the tenth gripping thriller in the Rachel Ryder series by USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson, delivers a riveting tale of suspense and deception that promises to keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
