Which loose-lipped gal about town has been caught canoodling with a randy restaurateur? Sources say the new “legs” of the Examiner’s gossip column has been helping him bury his long-simmering scandal even though it’s been eating away at her conscience.

Which grizzly tabloid guy better watch his way with the ladies? We hear he got more than a hangover from a boozy night out with a mattress (model/actress) that may cost him his burgeoning relationship with a precocious Park Avenue princess.

Which Wall Street mogul is about to be busted for fuzzy math on his taxes? Luckily, his ink-stained son is digging up a diversion to take down a blowhard billionaire instead.

In the novel 4% Famous, Kate Simon, Tim Mack, and Blake Bradley negotiate the ruthless underworld of Manhattan while working for the city’s top gossip columns.

Friends, lovers, and frenemies may come and go as quickly as the fame quotient of the celebrities they cover, but the young columnists must figure out for themselves what—and who—is worth protecting as they try to avoid becoming fodder for Manhattan’s boldfaced games.

Sexy, exciting, and addictively readable, 4% Famous is an intimate fictional tale of a bizarre industry full of characters and secrets that are as seductive and dark as New York City itself.
