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, tough-as-nails investigative reporter with her own TV show, 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.

"Buckle up and brace yourself for Maxine Revere."--Sandra Brown

When she was a high school senior, a close friend was strangled and another, Kevin, was accused of the crime. Max stood by Kevin--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. But that was years ago...and now Max is home for Kevin's funeral. Did he kill himself after years of drug abuse--or did someone else do the deed? As Max uncovers some dark secrets about Kevin's past 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...

"Brennan is guaranteed to excite fans with the launch of [this] new suspense series...[and its] complicated and compelling new protagonist."-- RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

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.
