"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.

Allison Brennan's Notorious is a fast-paced and engrossing mystery that has a cast of characters that stands out from other novels in this genre. This first novel starring Maxine "Max" Revere, an independently wealthy investigative reporter who solves cold cases, is an intriguing mystery set in an elite and wealthy California enclave. The murders of two people from her hometown have stymied local detectives but Max quickly uncovers evidence that revives both of the investigations into the unsolved homicides.

Max returns home for the funeral of her old friend Kevin O'Neal and she is immediately caught up in two separate investigations. While trying to determine whether Kevin's death was in fact a suicide, Max begins looking into the thirteen year old unsolved death of their mutual friend, Lindy Ames. Kevin was tried and acquitted of Lindy's murder, and in the months leading up to his death, Kevin was trying to track down her killer. Max was always convinced of Kevin's innocence but she could not forgive him for lying to her about his alibi the night of the murder.

The other case is that Max is looking into surrounds the death of Jason Hoffman, a young man murdered on the grounds of her old prep school. With little to go on, the investigation soon stalled out and in fact, Max discovers it has recently been relegated to the cold case file. But when a young woman Max questioned is viciously attacked, Nick Santini, the detective in charge of the case, reopens the case. Despite Nick's warnings to the contrary, Max continues poking around in the case and the sparks are soon flying between these two strong-willed people.

Max is headstrong, tenacious and the demons from her own past drive her search for the truth. She has long been at odds with her wealthy family and she spends as little time with them as possible. She has a no nonsense attitude that can be a little off putting but it is difficult to fault her search for answers. Max is definitely a what you see is what you get kind of person but there is a hint of vulnerability that she carefully keeps hidden.

While there are a lot of supporting characters in Notorious, there are a couple that are worth mentioning. First up is Max's assistant/bodyguard, David Kane. He is off screen for most of the story, but he is Max's closest friend and he is her go to guy for digging up information that nobody wants found. David cares deeply for her and I really enjoyed the dynamic between the two.

Nick is equally likable and while he makes no effort to hide the antipathy he feels for Max, there is no denying the attraction between them. Very little personal information is revealed about his character until near the end of the novel and it will definitely be interesting to see how he might fit into future novels.

While there is the tiniest bit of romance to the novel, Notorious is first and foremost a mystery. Allison Brennan does an excellent job keeping the unfolding storyline unpredictable and readers will constantly second guess their theories as to the killer's identity. Red herrings cast suspicion on numerous individuals and misdirects provide many different scenarios for the murders. Trying to guess what, if any, connection there might be between the deaths is virtually impossible. All in all, an excellent first installment in the Max Revere series that leaves fans eagerly anticipating the next release.

okay, hard to follow in spots, others seemed taken from other works. ( )

Overall this book was somewhat of a slow read. Nothing picked up for me until about the last 4 chapters of the book, at which point I was ready to put the book down anyway.

I found Max was too perfectly written. She had few to no flaws besides not being able to keep a relationship but she seemed to have every other skill set as well as her body guard. No one should have those connections and literally be able to know everything there is to know about someone within an hour. It felt like it was more fiction than fiction crime. I don't know if I would read another book by this author if this is her style of writing. ( )

The book was a decent read. However, I simply could not warm up to Max. She was a touch too arrogant and self righteous....a character trait I dislike in either gender. ( )

Maxine (Max) Revere has a serious hard on for getting justice for the dead. She makes no apologizes for how she gets the answers needed to solve cold case murders.

This turned out to have more than one case that over the course of the book collided in a surprising reveal. I was riveted through out the book wondering who the killer was.

Large cast of characters and with Max working on two separate cases at times the switch between them wasnt always obvious but overall it was an enjoyable read with a very strong personality heroine who is like a dog with bone on solving the cold cases. ( )

This is a fun, fast-paced thriller that will keep up late. Max is a character you will definitely want to hang with again and again. Hopefully more Max books are coming.
