A fearless black-bag publicist exposes the belly of the L.A. beast in "one of the best LA noir novels I've ever read" (Attica Locke) from Edgar Award-winning author Jordan Harper.
A NYTBR Editors' Choice Selection
"Ingenious... I'd like to think Chandler himself might get a kick out of Everybody Knows. . . the LA hardboiled mystery form he largely created continues to chronicle a world even more fatally obsessed with images and false gods than he could ever have envisioned."―Maureen Corrigan, NPR/Fresh Air
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 PR 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 headfirst 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 EVERYBODY KNOWS 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.
