A fearless black-bag publicist exposes the belly of the Los Angeles beast. Welcome to Mae Pruett’s Los Angeles, where “nobody talks. But everybody whispers.” As a “black-bag” publicist tasked not with letting the good news out but keeping the bad news in, Mae works for one of LA’s most powerful and sought-after crisis public-relations firms, at the center of a sprawling web of lawyers, PR flaks, and private security firms she calls “The Beast.” They protect the rich and powerful and depraved by any means necessary. After her boss is gunned down in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel in a random attack, Mae takes it upon herself to investigate and runs head first into The Beast’s lawless machinations and the twisted systems it exists to perpetuate. It takes her on a roving neon joyride through a Los Angeles full of influencers pumped full of pills and fillers, sprawling mansions footsteps away from sprawling homeless encampments, crooked cops and mysterious wrecking crews in the middle of the night. Edgar Award-winner Jordan Harper’s novel is addicting and alarming, a “juggernaut of a novel” and “an absolute tour de force.” It is what the crime novel can achieve in the modern age: portray the human lives at the center of vast American landscapes and make us thrill at their attempts to face impossible odds.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"It’s more than a crime novel. It’s a fresh take and a hard look at our culture.” Wall Street Journal
“Everybody Knows rages through the City of Angels like a broken-dam flood. It’s got it all, but most of all it’s got deep insight. It’s the book everybody’s been waiting for.” Michael Connolly, New York Times bestselling author
