Summary

New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan introduces an irrepressible heroine in her pulse-pounding new thriller Notorious , which Lisa Gardner says is, "Guaranteed to keep you up late at night."

Maxine Revere has dedicated her life to investigating murders that the police have long since given up any hope of solving. A nationally renowned investigative reporter with her own TV show and a tough-as-nails reputation, Max tackles cold cases from across the country and every walk of life. But the one unsolved murder that still haunts her is a case from her own past.

When Max was a high school senior, one of her best friends was strangled and another, Kevin O'Neal, accused of the crime. To the disgrace of her wealthy family, Max stood by her friend, until she found out he lied about his alibi. Though his guilt was never proven, their relationship crumbled from the strain of too many secrets.

Now Max is home for Kevin's funeral--after years of drug abuse, he committed suicide. She's finally prepared to come to terms with the loss of his friendship, but she's not prepared for Kevin's sister to stubbornly insist that he didn't kill himself. Or for an elderly couple to accost her at the airport, begging her to look into another murder at Max's old high school. Max is more interested in the cold case at her alma mater than in digging around Kevin's troubled life, but she agrees to doboth. As Max uncovers dark secrets, she finds herself caught in a complicated web of lies that hit far too close to home. And it's becoming increasingly clear that someone will do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Investigative reporter Maxine Revere takes on cold cases both in print and on her cable TV show. In this introduction to the series, Max goes home to Atherton, California, a wealthy enclave outside of San Francisco. Kevin, Lindy, and Max were best friends all through school until their senior year when Lindy was murdered, and Kevin was accused but not convicted by the hung jury. Max stood by Kevin but later found out he had lied to her. Upon her return home, a new murder is committed, and Max finds herself looking into a couple of old mysteries and a new one. She also has to deal with her large, wealthy family; her former friends; and all their egos and infighting. Working with ex-special forces turned detective Nick Santini, in charge of the homicide, Max finds that she shares a work ethic and a strong mutual attraction with the young, good-looking, and smart Nick. But Max is able to go outside the law on occasion, and Nick finds her reckless streak both maddening and endearing. Fireworks erupt on more than one occasion, and it seems like the beginning of an interesting relationship a terrific new series. Sandra Brown and Hank Phillippi Ryan fans will feel right at home.--Alesi, Stacy Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "New York City journalist Maxine "Max" Revere, famed for her interest in cold cases and the star of this competent series debut from Brennan (Love Me to Death), is driven by the one case she never solved years before: the one that left Lindy Ames dead and Kevin O'Neal destroyed by the shadow of unproven suspicion. When Kevin commits suicide, Max returns home to Atherton, Calif., where she finds an insular community whose wealthy families-including hers-will close ranks rather than betray their own to the law. The recent shooting death of a construction worker at Atherton Prep, Max's old high school, soon engages her. Despite the opposition of the local police, Maxine forges ahead in her quest for justice for the dead, but will her resolve hold when the trail leads back to her own family? While this first entry, reminiscent in many ways of TV's Veronica Mars, lacks nuance, Brennan has set up a sound foundation for more complex future installments. Agent: Dan Conaway, Writers House.
