Overview

Final Jeopardy (Alexandra Cooper Series #1) by Linda Fairstein

This critically acclaimed, explosive thriller is a book only prosecutor Linda Fairstein could write. Patricia Cornwall knows the morgue; John Grisham knows the courtroom; but no one knows the inner workings of the D.A.'s office like Linda Fairstein, renowned for two decades as head of Manhattan Sex Crimes Unit. Now that world comes vividly to life in a brilliant debut novel of shocking realism, powerful insight, and searing suspense.

Alexandra Cooper, Manhattan's top sex crimes prosecutor, awakens one morning to shoking news: a tabloid headline announcing her own brutal murder. But the actual victim was Isabella Lascar, the Hollywood film star who sought refuge at Alex's Martha's Vineyard retreat. Was Isabella targeted by a stalker or -- mistaken for Alex -- was she in the wrong place at the wrong time? In an investigation that twists from the back alleys of lower Manhattan to the chic salons of the Upper East Side. Alex knows she'sin final jeopardy...and time is running out. She has to get into the killer's head before the killer gets to her.

I had not read this author before, took me by surprise the book was so good. In addition, there is good material in this work for learning how things operate in investigative situations . . . I will definitely be looking for Fairstein's other books!

I read the last book in the Alex Cooper series and loved it. I wanted to start from the beginnig and read the whole series. This book is so boring that I can't bring myself to finish reading it. I am halfway through and nothing extiting has happened since the very beginning. I am going to finish it eventually, I just hope the other books in this series are better than this one.

A fine debut that introduces an interesting cast and a decent mystery. I plan to read the rest of her books, anticipating she will grow as a writer.

A really good read. I enjoyed it "muchly". The fifth star is for "no graphic, smutty sex scenes"

Authentic, riveting, unpredictable - what more can you ask, of a crime novel. As someone who has a decaded-and-a-half of time working in the criminal justice system, I especially appreciate that her characters are not stock stereotypes, and that her situations are true-to-life, rather than simplistic. I wish that television so-called "procedural" producers would learn from her example, especially in the area of authenticity.

Having read some of Linda Fairstein's earlier books I was looking forward to meeting Ms. Cooper. She does not disappoint. The book is well paced, well written and most enjoyable. Will definitely follow the Alexandra Cooper series.

This is the first book I have ever read from this author. I really enjoyed it and purchased the rest of the series for this author and am currently on the 3rd book in the series. I like the way she writes and love that she uses the same characters in every book. I definitely recommend these books, you will enjoy them!

This book has a very detailed description of the life of a sex crimes prosecutor. Great read for anyone interested in mystery and courtroom drama. The twists and turns will drive you crazy trying to figure out who did it. Great!

Competently written, well paced, well - defined characters, but ultimately boring; not thrilling at all and not particularly mysterious.

Enjoy a good mystery, can tell this is a start, hoping rest of series more suspenseful. Nook version can use some edits.... lots of "led" which should read as " Jed", among other spell-check misses.
