    Alexandra Cooper is a fabulous character.

    I am a David Baldacci/James Patterson fan and was looking for a female character of great depth. I found that character in Alexandra Cooper. I have not been disappointed in her. Linda Fairstein had such a great grasp of the local color which adds incredibly to the story line. Blair Brown is a wonderful narrator.

    Good exciting read.

    I love Linda Fairstein and thought I had read everything she wrote, but I missed this one and glad I caught it.

    CD/abridged/Suspense: Book 6 of the Alexandra Cooper Series. I've listened to Cold Hit and while I really liked it, I remembered the Jeopardy part the most.
    What I like the most about this one was that I learned something. In this book, you learn about King Farouk and his love of collecting things, expensive things. Yes there's a murder and yes, Alex is in danger, but I it was a enjoyable listen. Blair Brown does a great job narrating.

    smoothly combines a legal thriller with a police procedural

    Manhattan Sex Crimes Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper tires to persuade a jury to convict counter terrorism security consultant Andrew Tripping of raping thirty something Paige Wallis. The problem with the case is that the alleged victim has no injuries or bruises so it becomes a ¿He said she said¿ scenario in front of a judge who hates these so called rape date trials due to the typical lack of solid evidence for instance like a corpse in a homicide. <P>In the courtroom, Alex¿s case is in trouble. Meanwhile, someone murders McQueen ¿Queenie¿ Ransome, a former Harlem Renaissance dancer. Surprisingly Queenie had a fascinating past as a WW II secret agent and as the mistress of Egypt¿s King Farouk, whom she left one day with plenty of his treasure. NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace investigate the homicide that also brings in the CIA and links to the Tripping rape trial while someone tries to kill Alex. <P>THE KILLS (named for a part of lower Manhattan) excitingly and smoothly combines a legal thriller with a police procedural as Alex makes her third starring performance (see THE BONE VAULT and THE DEADHOUSE). The story line moves forward rather quickly, but it is the courtroom scenes whether in front of the jury or in the judge¿s chambers that raise the quality level. Though attempted murder of a government prosecutor seems hard to accept that fits in the logic of the plot especially since Alex is doing her own legwork (not sure where she finds the time ¿ sort of like reviewing 3-4 books a day). Fans will admire the heroine and appreciate this fine thriller. <P>Harriet Klausner
