One of Her Best!

This is one of the best in this series. Very complex and wonderful twists and turns. I'm in love with these characters.

HELL GATE begins with a shipwreck loaded with human cargo. One of the dead has a connection with a local politician (his lover has the same tattoo). Are they truly related or is it a coincidence? Alex Cooper an ADA and two NYPD detectives try to connect the dots. I have just started reading this series, but I must say that Linda Fairstein does a great job with her research and descriptive narratives of New York City architecture and history. I found this as interesting as the story itself. The camaraderie between Alex and Mike (one the detectives) is enjoyable, especially when they are always betting one another on the answers to Final Jeopardy. Although, this story wasn't as thrilling as some of the previous ones, it was still a good read.

    DULL, DULL, DULL

    If you want to learn about New York history, then this is a good read, but if you are looking for a fast paced mystery, look elsewhere. Very slow moving, too many characters, not enough suspense. Will not be trying another Linda Fairstein novel.
