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.

Read It File It Review: Notorious by Allison Brennan kept me guessing till the very end. The mystery was strong! Also since this is the first in a new series, it is the perfect way to try Allison Brennan if you haven't before (I love her writing).

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Eliza Foss / Length: 12 hrs and 51 mins


The narration was OK but it wasn't outstanding. I thought the pacing was off a little bit and some of the voices were just not my cup of tea. I thought Eliza did a great job with some other narrations (Alafair Burke)so it was just this match that didn't work for me.

Too much drama in the reading

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
