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.
Compelling and disturbing. Pierces right to the centre of the current zeitgeist.
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.
You'll recognise every character in Whisper Network. Furious and relevant writing: the ultimate #metoo book. I loved it so much.
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.
This book is gonna be huge... Topical, unflinching and sharp
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.
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.
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
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.
A thriller for the #metoo era
