Whisper Network speaks loud and clear

Friday was release day for Web of Nightmares, book #8 in the Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator series. Be sure to pick up your copy today!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I just finished reading Whisper Network by Chandler Baker. It is a Grisham-like legal suspense book about women in society, the workforce, and law in particular. If you are the type who does not like a book with an agenda, this one is not for you, because it is very clearly intended to address sexual abuse in the workplace and the means used to keep victim’s complaints from ever seeing the light of day.

Several of the reviewers who gave Whisper Network negative reviews referred to it as a mystery, but it really is not. The story is not about finding out who killed Ames, or whether it was, in fact, suicide, but about all the histories of each of the women and how they were affected by sexual abuse in the workplace. It is a psychological suspense, not a whodunnit.

Grace was a few years younger than Ardie and Sloane and still clung to the notion that someone could be a “good person” despite their actions, as though actions weren’t the very indicator of one’s person. And Ardie had seen Ames Garrett in action.

Chandler Baker, Whisper Network

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.

Tell me what you think!
