The Xanathar is apparently going to release a book very soon entitled "Xanathar's guide to everything".
Well, I think that our audience should know that they are purchasing a book from a well known criminal network and that this is all most likely some sort of front for a more devious enterprise.
Outlined here is the History and Structure of The Xanathar, Waterdeep's most dangerous and deadly thieves guild.
And as always, follow the holy words of Oghma - "Like, Share, Subscribe."

So, I was playing in an Adventurer's League campaign, and our party of 1st level characters is in Waterdeep. Our first encounter is with Xanathar, one of my mind flayer assistants, and some Thugs. Luckily, he has better things to do than zap a few newbie adventurers and just leaves us to fight the thugs. Unfortunately, thugs (as described in the Monster Manual) still have two things that make them very dangerous to 1st-level characters...Pack Tactics, which gives them advantage on attack rolls if they have an ally within 5 feet of their target, and Multiattack, which gives them the ability to take two swings with their maces per attack action.

Current Xanathar from "Xanathar's guide to everything" seems to be new. A very goofy persona but with the power to kill you with a stare.

Wait, there is a shit ton of Beholders below Waterdeep??? Now all the overpowered novel characters, epic level wizards and active metallic dragons are justified.... (and I'm not being sarcastic)

A Prayer of Oghma: "Lord of All Knowledge, Binder of What is Known: Make my eyes clear, my mind open, my heart true. Give me the wisdom to separate the lie from the truth. Give me the strength to accept what is so. My word is my steel, my reason my shield. And I shall fear no deception, for the truth remains. And Oghma has made me a lantern in the gloom, a compass in the wilds." -Dahl Peredur Basically says Subscribe.

Very short note: Though all of this is the truth, it is important to note that the average Waterdhavian, though aware of the stories of Skullport and the Xanathar, consider both little more than embellished rumours and local legends, expressing the concept of such a social-structure existing within the City of Splendours, as ridiculous at best. In other words, as far as most of Faerûn is concerned, the Xanathar-Guild is little more than a fanciful legend akin to such preposterous tales as that of a ghostly dragon guarding the dungeons of Candlekeep, or the claim that a Dracolich is manipulating the majority of the criminal activity in Waterdeep and its nearby regions---........WHAT DO YOU MEAN THOSE ARE REAL?!!!

Indeed. I'd definitively agree with this being from the angle of a Harper, or potentially a member of the Red Sashes. Particularly the line relating to the possible "positive" connection between the Guild and the Masked Lords cements it as such, as these organizations investigate everybody.
