About the Book.
Sara Shepard is no stranger to writing undeniable page-turners. Her #1 New York Times bestselling Pretty Little Liars series was adapted as a hit ABC Family television series that ran for seven seasons and inspired a spin-off show, The Perfectionists, which premiered on Freeform this year. This December, Shepard delivers her most deliciously juicy, delightfully twisty novel yet, REPUTATION.
Packed with scandal, secrets, lies, and betrayal, REPUTATION invites readers into the hallowed halls of Aldrich University, an elite college with an outstanding academic record, an impressive roster of students and staff, and an alumni network with very deep pockets. But when a hacker dumps the email records of every Aldrich student, faculty member, staff, and alum onto a public server, the dark secrets lurking behind the university’s glossy exterior are exposed, with every dirty detail laid out for all to read and forward on to their most gossip-obsessed friends and co-workers.
Rumors and affairs are the first to hit the gossip-mill, but the situation reaches a boiling point when Kit Manning’s devilishly handsome husband, Dr. Greg Strasser, is found murdered in the kitchen of their home soon after the leak. Kit’s sister, Willa, returns for the funeral, setting foot in the hometown she fled fifteen years ago, after a night she wishes she could forget. As an investigative reporter, Willa knows something isn’t right about Greg’s death, and she’s determined to find the truth. What she doesn’t expect is that everyone has something to hide, whether it involved Greg or not. And with a killer on the loose, Willa and Kit must figure out who they can really trust before the murderer strikes again.
The stakes are raised even higher when Kit’s teenage daughters, Aurora and Sienna, are drawn into the web of secrets that the hack has unraveled, revealing dark, shocking truths that their entire family must reckon with if they are going to find a way to make peace with the past and forge a path towards a better future together. Told from multiple points of view, REPUTATION is full of twists, turns and astonishing reveals. It’s a story of intrigue, sabotage, and the secrets we keep—and how far we’ll go to keep them hidden. With a complex cast of memorable characters and a plot that races along at a break-neck pace, REPUTATION is Shepard at her very best.
