#BookReview for Whisper Network by @chandlerbakerYA

Synopsis: Four women learn their boss (a man who’s always been surrounded by rumors about how he treats women) is next in line to be CEO—what will happen when they decide enough is enough?

Sloane, Ardie, Grace, and Rosalita are four women who 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. Ames is a complicated man, a man they’ve all known for a long time, a man who’s always been surrounded by...whispers. Whispers that have always been ignored by those in charge. But the world has changed, and the women are watching Ames’s latest promotion differently. This time, they’ve decided enough is enough. 

Sloane and her colleagues set in motion a catastrophic shift within every floor and department of the Truviv offices. All four women’s 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."

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This one reminded me of a combo of John Tucker Must Die and that really old movie 9 to 5.  It was very dark and very good.  I will say that parts of it came off as man hating just a tad. But it wasn't overly done so it didn't over power the story.  I also want to say that this one was layered with mystery and at times I couldn't keep track of who what doing what or keeping what a secret.  It think this one would do REALLY well as a movie or TV show.  

The characters were all wonderful. They ooze that #MeToo era, everyone felt very authentic and I really enjoyed how they planned to take down their boss.  

This is one of those books where you will hate who you are supposed to and root for those that need it! 

An Oprah Magazine's Buzziest Books of 2019
“A compulsively readable mystery with a strong message. Don't miss it.”
Bookliststarred review
“Viciously funny and compulsively readable, Baker's first adult novel is a feminist thriller for the #MeToo era…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.”
Kirkusstarred 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, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied

Exciting and sprinkled with razor-sharp insights about what it is to be a woman todayWhisper 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
"Whisper Network is Big Little Lies meets Working Girl: a deft, honest take on what women in the workplace must endure; a fast-paced whodunit; and a gripping, #metoo-era thriller about how to fight for justice when the law isn't on your side. If your boss has done more than wink at you, if you've had to pump during a conference call, or if a man has ever taken credit for your work, then Chandler Baker's latest is a must read."
―Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet and June
Whisper Network manages to be provocative, timely, and a ripping good read: A murder mystery and a manifesto all rolled up into one. I couldn’t put it down.”
―Janelle Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Watch Me Disappear
"Might just make the strongest claim yet for the thriller of the #MeToo era.”
“You’ll recognise every character in Whisper NetworkFurious and relevant writing: the ultimate #metoo? book?.”
―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
