Reviews
"[E]ntertaining...clever, fast-paced...the crafty Rigetti makes fraud a lot of fun. An entertaining shell game of a novel."--Kirkus Reviews
"[A] ridiculously fun romp."--E! Online
"Rigetti's fiction debut has a roller-coaster plot that gives off huge Anna Delvey vibes and an ending that will leave you with your jaw on the floor.... If you're a fan of tales about scams, grifters, and mysterious schemes, Cover Story needs to be on your TBR list."--Popsugar
It's Catch Me if You Can meets Sweetbitter, from the woman who blew the whistle on Uber's software engineering team -- what's not to love?--Entertainment Weekly
"Journalist Rigetti's debut kicks off beach-read season with a bang.... Drawing heavy inspiration from the true story of Anna Delvey, who conned New York's elite for several years in the mid-2010s, this book will be a must-read for the legions who followed Delvey's story with bated breath.... It's The Devil Wear's Prada meets Gone Girl, and it's delightful."--Booklist (starred review)
"A clever epistolary novel with an elegant con woman at its center--in other words, perfect escapism for this moment."--Seattle Times
"Cover Story by Susan Rigetti is an unforgettable tale of scams and double-crosses told through emails, diary entries, and FBI correspondence."--Popsugar
"Taking inspiration from the Anna Delveys of the world, 'Cover Story' is a delicious read about a young intern who gets caught up in a breathtakingly opulent--if claustrophobic--scheme (or four)."--Marie Claire
"[C]inematic...Rigetti's propulsive narrative, which includes Instagram posts, text messages, and FBI case files, keeps the pages turning, and there's a juicy twist."--Publishers Weekly
"[A] page-turner that's hilarious in its dedication to vamping on viral news stories about real-life strivers and cons from Delvey to Instagram personality Caroline Calloway ... a delicious read."--Time magazine
