“Exciting and sprinkled with razor-sharp insights about what it is to be a woman today, Whisper Network is a witty and timely story that will make you cheer for sisterhood.”
—Liv Constantine, USA Today bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

“If only you’d listened to us, none of this would have happened.”

Sloane, Ardie, Grace, and Rosalita have worked at Truviv, Inc. for years. The sudden death of Truviv’s CEO means their boss, Ames, will likely take over the entire company. Each of the women has a different relationship with Ames, who has always been surrounded by whispers about how he treats women. Those whispers have been ignored, swept under the rug, hidden away by those in charge.

But the world has changed, and the women are watching this promotion differently. This time, when they find out Ames is making an inappropriate move on a colleague, they aren’t willing to let it go. This time, they’ve decided enough is enough.

Sloane and her colleagues’ decision to take a stand sets in motion a catastrophic shift in the office. Lies will be uncovered. Secrets will be exposed. And not everyone will survive. All of their lives—as women, colleagues, mothers, wives, friends, even adversaries—will change dramatically as a result.

"If only you had listened to us,” they tell us on page one, “none of this would have happened."

“Don't be fooled by its title. Whisper Network is a primal roar of a novel. Furiously funny and just plain furious, it's as timely as today's headlines and as b… More…

—Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of I Let You Go

"It’s Nine to Five on speed. This preternaturally timely novel — provocative, disturbing, and (dare I say it?) surprisingly fun — is serrated as a kitchen knife, and twice as sharp. I read it with horror. I read it with pleasure. I’ll read it again."
—A.J. Finn, author of #1 NYT bestseller The Woman in the Window

“From the first page, Whisper Network is a twisty, propulsive, utterly addicting whodunit, with whip-smart, irreverent and unforgettable characters. Part murder mystery, part expose, the story takes hold of you and doesn’t let go for one heart-pounding second with its incisive commentary about harassment in the workplace with deadly consequences. Provocative, thoughtful and highly entertaining, Whisper Network is a book readers will be talking about long after they've finished reading it.”
—E. G. Scott, author of The Woman Inside
