The Cleaner

By Brandi Wells
The Cleaner by Brandi Wells digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

“Welcome to the office building at night, an eerie ship helmed by one woman desperate for connection.” —Julia Fine, author of Maddalena and the Dark

Every night, she cleans. On the fourth floor of an unnamed office in an unnamed city, the night cleaner comes and does what she does best—sorts out the messes of the daytime employees. None of them know her, but she knows everything about them: Sad Intern’s dreams to get promoted, Résumé Woman’s nasty flight-risk behavior, Mr. Buff’s secret smoking habit (not very conducive to his fitness journey).

She’s the office mastermind, the one everyone needs, and no one even knows she exists. And tonight, while scrolling through your emails, she’ll discover the secret you’ve been hiding—the one that will put everyone’s job at risk.

After all, protecting the employees is her responsibility: whether it’s from rats and window smudges or from the sinister CEO who may be driving the company into ruin. And you’re about to find out that, sometimes, your most powerful enemy is the one you don’t even see.

Rolling on the Floor Laughing Face“The Cleaner was an extremely fun and engaging read. The main character's quirkiness and desire to take care of her colleagues left me wanting to know more about her and continue to follow her escapades. What stood out to me the most were the short interactions the cleaner had with the office workers. Their lack of respect for her as an equal employee were evident in their engagements. It was as if her role as a cleaner made her less of a person and not worthy enough of their attention and gratitude. So many of these moments stuck with me after reading the book. *** I received an advanced digital copy The Cleaner from the publisher and NetGalley. All opinions are my own.**”
Funny writingAddictive
“this one was absolutely spectacular. the narrator is fundamentally somewhat disconnected from the people who she works with, and as such as the cleaner judges them by their desks, a really unique way for a very (almost overly) determined cleaner. thanks for the ARC. Cheers!”
