Book Summary

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."

"A compulsively readable mystery with a strong message. Don't miss it." - Booklist (starred review)

"YA author Baker makes her adult debut with an engrossing, bracingly funny thriller...This empowering novel is sure to resonate with many readers in the #MeToo era." - Publishers Weekly

"It's a breezy page-turner of a book, which is the brilliance of it: Under the froth is an unmistakable layer of justified rage." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"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 big-hearted as your best work friend. A fantastic read." - Riley Sager, author of The Last Time I Lied

"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, author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

Time to Speak Up
The time for ignoring the whispers is over. Enough is enough. The women are closing ranks to speak up about the sexual harassment in their workplace. Part thriller and part murder mystery, Baker expertly delves into what it is like to be a woman in the corporate world.

Sloane, Ardie, and Grace are Truviv attorneys while Rosalita is a cleaning woman. The current CEO has died and it is rumored that Ames Garrett will fill the vacancy. But there have been whispers that Garrett has harassed and assaulted women in the workplace. People have covered for him for years. So the women finally speak up, and someone dies. Did they have anything to do with it? Interspersed throughout the book are portions of police interviews and depositions. Also interwoven are two lesser plotlines that will eventually play heavily in the outcome.

A real page turner. Suspenseful. Emotional. Portions of the book will definitely take you out of your comfort zone. Realistic characters with all their flaws, characters you can relate to. I was cheering on these women.

Thank you to Flatiron Books via NetGalley for the advance reading copy. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Age makes a difference
I won a copy of this book so felt obliged to read and review it.
Perhaps if I was MUCH younger and working it might have rated a 5 star...but I'm not.
It took me halfway to finally get into the book and characters,
