‘Ms. Sandberg was right about something. We had to lean in. It was the only way to hear the whispers…’

Sloane, Ardie, Grace and Rosalita have worked in the same legal office for years. The sudden death of the firm’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 latest promotion for Ames differently.

This time, they’ve decided enough is enough.

Sloane and her colleagues’ decision to take a stand sets in motion something catastrophic and unstoppable: lies will be uncovered, secrets will be exposed and not everyone will survive. All their lives – as women, colleagues, mothers, adversaries – will be changed for ever.

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, bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied
Compelling and disturbing. Pierces right to the centre of the current zeitgeist.
Carole Matthews
In the midst of a police investigation and meetings involving suits and counter suits, Baker works in succinct statements about the quandaries of modern women: torn between motherhood and work, plagued with guilt about nearly everything, suppressing their femininity while being undervalued because of their sex, and schooled in secrecy. These truths serve to bolster the plot, not distract from it, and the result is a compulsively readable mystery with a strong message. Don't miss it.
Baker's caustic debut - about four women working in corporate America who all have secrets about their new male boss - might just make the strongest claim yet for the thriller of the #MeToo era.
Oprah Magazine
You'll recognise every character in Whisper Network. Furious and relevant writing: the ultimate #metoo book. I loved it so much.
Clare Mackintosh
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, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
This book is gonna be huge... Topical, unflinching and sharp
Eva Woods, author of How To Be Happy
Exciting and sprinkled with razor-sharp insights about what it is to be a woman today, Whisper Network is a witty and timely story that will make you cheer for sisterhood.
Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish
Viciously funny and compulsively readable... [Whisper Network] is a breezy page-turner of a book, which is the brilliance of it: Under the froth is an unmistakable layer of justified rage.
Slick, smart, fierce, it's Big Little Lies set against attorneys and recast in the light of #metoo. Relevant, resonant and rage inducing.
Sarah Vaughan
A great read . . . This has a huge buzz in the book world already and deservedly so! You'll wanna take this one on vacation with you
Laura Jane Williams
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, NYTimes bestselling author of Watch Me Disappear
A thriller for the #metoo era
