Publisher Description

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 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.

Great book

This was one of the best books I’ve read lately. Great characters, good story line and left you guessing throughout. It was hard to put down.

Good story but poor syntax throughout the book

I really enjoyed this book. It has a lot of twist and turns, and there’s a good amount of psychological insight into Max and other characters.

I just wish the syntax were better. Too many sentences end with prepositions throughout the book. Punctuation could also be better. Even if I am reading a fiction novel, I want to be respected intellectually, and prefer when the author writes in logical sentence structures.

If it weren’t for the syntax and punctuation, I would have given this book 5 stars.

Too many characters

This was a pretty good book...that being said, there were so many characters introduced that I spent most of my time in the "search" section trying to figure out who they were. Granted, I didn't read it straight through, but it was very confusing. Would've given it 4 stars if not for the above.
