“Fast-paced fun!  Notorious packs in the thrills as investigative reporter Max confronts new murders and old family secrets in a suspense novel guaranteed to keep you up late at night.”  Maxine Revere has dedicated her life to investigating murders that the police have long since given up any hope of solving.  A nationally renowned investigative reporter with her own TV show and a tough-as-nails- reputation, Max tackles cold cases from across the country and every walk of life.  But the one unsolved murder that still haunts her is a case from her own past.
