Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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 do both. 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.

    "Too much drama in the reading"
    What disappointed you about Notorious?

    The reader!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Good story. Kept me interested


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Read it instead of acting like she was in a ply. Way too dramatic


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Interested


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I would have read the book instead of listened to it

    I was very lonely as a teen and books were my escape. Thanks to my father who introduced me to the love of reading.

    Loved the book and will be planning to listen more of the series! I love a great whodunit especially if the narrator is as good as Eliza Floss the words and the voice came off as smooth as molasses. The character development was not long and boring like some audio books which made it extra enjoyable. The book made you feel just when you figured out whodunit it wasn't who you thought it would be. Great listen but I also enjoy Alisson Brennan books and series.

    Story
    ""notoriously bad""
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Main character. Quite awful. Self-righteous and hypocritical. Everyone but herself has to be held to a standard of truth. However she lies by omission, picks locks to enter others homes. Reads others personnel diaries and confidential police files. I couldn't recommend this to anyone.


    What could Allison Brennan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not write it.


    What didn’t you like about Eliza Foss’s performance?

    Overly dramatic


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Notorious?

    Everything.

    I enjoy authentic characters, in believable circumstances, mostly fiction, blended with historical fact, of any genre, with romance added.

    "Average Reading"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    For me as a male reader it read like a book for a woman, written by a woman, read by a woman, about women. I can be in touch with my "feminine side" same as most males but it felt to "girly" for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Allison Brennan? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I usually dont return to authors of a book I "endured" to finish.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I'm not sure if a male performer would have given me the balance of male/female that I needed.


    Could you see Notorious being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.
