New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein delivers a heart-pounding thriller that explores the dark secrets of Manhattan's iconic fashion scene in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel.
New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well-known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage’s death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion.
With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy, and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime—and the possible homicide—beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana Voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well-hidden, even from those closest to him—just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk.
With Killer Look, Linda Fairstein proves once again why she is the “Queen of Intelligent Suspense.”*

Can't even finish it
I love this series and have read them all. But the characters don't even seem to be themselves in this book. I can't even finish it, it's so bad.
What A Stinker
I don't read many Fairstein novels. With this one I remember why. Mike is no detective and he is obnoxious to his girlfriend. Coop's character is under developed and is unlikeable. I don't want to finish reading.
I have to downgrade my rating; this book was terrible. Whatever is the point to the ending? I believe the author should hang it up and go back to being the chief of the Sex Crimes Unit.
I cannot believe how bad this is.
Another solid hit!
Really enjoyed both the intrigue and the backstory of this latest addition to the Alexandra Cooper series. I loved how it picked up right after the end of the last book (had to go back and re-read the last couple of chapters of Devils Bridge to refresh my memory) and the way it looked at the consequences for Alex of being a victim instead of the one helping victims. I had a hard time with some of the facets of her behavior but mostly just because I love Alex and didn't want to see feet of clay! I found the story development to be clever and well paced. Several plot turns kept me guessing but nothing came out of left field. I hate when authors do that...I always think the reader should have a fair chance of figuring out what is going on along with the protagonist!!
I have only one disappointment that seems out of character with the mythology that's been developed in the series. I can't really describe it for fear of spoilers but suffice to say it has to do with how Alex is treated by those around her. Just doesn't seem plausible given the way situations and relationships have been described in the past.
It's another great read for fans of the series and now that I read it in one day,on release day, I've got to endure an unbearable length of time until the next one comes out!!
