Notorious

By Allison Brennan

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.

Summary: "When Maxine Revere was a high school senior, her best friend was murdered and their mutual friend, Kevin O'Neal, was accused of the crime. Kevin's guilt wasn't proven, but Max and Kevin's friendship never recovered and Max moved across the country shortly afterward. She never looked back. Thirteen years later, Max, now a successful investigative reporter, returns home to attend Kevin's funeral. The police say it was suicide, but Kevin's little sister doesn't believe it. Nor does she believe that Kevin committed murder all those years ago, and she begs Max to help clear Kevin's name. For Max, digging into Kevin's life means facing demons from her own past, as well as crossing a stubborn detective who wants Max to stay the hell away from his case. Soon it becomes terrifyingly clear that someone will do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried."-- Provided by publisher.
