There is no question, Linda Fairstein knows how to right a quality mystery. Death Angel is her latest exploration of the world of Assistant DA Alex Cooper, and it does not disappoint. The crime elements are realistic as is the investigation. The writing is fast paced. There are lots of twists and turns to keep the reader mesmerized.

    If you love NYC and Central Park

    I love Linda Fairstein books. Besides having great characters that you love to read about, there's always a terrific story to accompany them. There is always wonderful history of New York City - this time about Central Park. I can't wait to visit the park again!

    Enjoy these characters in every book.

    Not quite as good as usual. Probably would give it 3 1/2 stars. Still like her books.

    Very good read

    I really thought this book was a very interesting read. I especially related to all the information regarding Central Park since I am a native New Yorker.

    Central Park, that oasis in the center of Manhattan, serves as the backdrop for this latest murder mystery in the Alex Cooper series. It is the fifteenth novel in which the author uses a New York City landmark as a setting. And you learn more than you possibly ever wanted to know about the park, which stretches from 59th to 110th Streets and from Fifth Avenue to Central Park West..

    A young, apparently homeless, woman is found dead in the lake at the southern end of the park, one of many crimes that have been committed in the park. Then an attempted rape takes place, and Alex determines the perpetrator is someone she has previously prosecuted, and the investigation into the two events proceeds with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace and the whole NYPD scouring the park looking for the suspect.

    The plot becomes more complex with at least two or three extraneous side issues, including a possible love entanglement between Mike and a judge and then a putative one with Alex, and the introduction of a decades-old mystery surrounding the abduction of a three-year-old from the Dakota, a famous apartment building housing many of the rich and famous on CPW.

    The novel has all the characteristics of Ms. Fairstein’s earlier books in the series: meticulous research on the landmark she is using to tell the tale, excellent dialog and tight plotting. However, at least to this reader, it seemed she was more interested in demonstrating her ability to gather as much information about the setting she has chosen and overwhelming the reader with facts and figures, than with the murder mystery itself. That said, the novel is recommended.

    Best yet

    I think her best to date if you enjoy the Mike/Coop situation.

    Learn a bit more about New York!

    Perhaps a bit drawn out but a New York learning experience as usual.

    Very good

    I learned more about Central Park from this book than from all the times I've been there. The park, the Dakota, and Manhattan become like characters in the book.
