Book Review: Social Death by Tatiana Boncompagni

Reviewer: Samantha

Untitled-1I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


GONE GIRL meets GOSSIP GIRL in this gripping new mystery about the murder of a beautiful socialite and the scandalous secret she carries to her death.

When veteran news producer Clyde Shaw is called to the scene of a grisly murder on the Upper East Side, she thinks it’s just another high-profile crime, the kind she’s built her high-powered career on — except the murder victim is Olivia Kravis, the daughter of Clyde’s billionaire boss and Clyde’s best friend since childhood.

As a high-stakes network ratings war begins, Clyde’s own privileged yet troubled past comes back to haunt her, and she’s forced to choose between finding her best friend’s killer and losing everything — her job, her reputation, even her life. Long-guarded secrets. Millions at stake. And only Clyde holds the key to unlocking the truth.


OMG. Let me start this review talking about the ending. The ending! I can’t think of the last time I read a book where the ending was that great and literally had me saying, “Wait – What?!” as I closed the book. I got goosebumps on the last sentence. I will try to stop gushing about the ending now and talk about the rest of the book. Just as fabulous! This is a smartly written suspense novel that kept me on my toes throughout. Clyde’s whole life is interesting, from her childhood to her wild ways, and finally to where she is now in life. I loved that it was never quite clear who was behind the murder happening in the story, and when it finally clicked for me, I was only about two pages away from it being found out. This book is so hard to put down and I highly, highly recommend you read this. I loved it!
