Channel 7 sleuth Hank Phillippi Ryan has two more mystery novels on the way. The local TV reporter, who’s also a successful suspense novelist, sent us word that she has signed a deal to publish two books over the next two years, “The Other Woman,’’ which will come out in 2012, and a sequel in 2013. The publisher is Forge, which also works with Eric Van Lustbader, who continued the Jason Bourne novels for Robert Ludlum. “The Other Woman’’ will be Ryan’s first hardcover book.
