An Alexandra Cooper Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein returns with a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that takes Alexandra Cooper into the dark underside of New York City’s most storied restaurants and a murder case spanning continents.
While Alexandra Cooper is in France visiting her famed restaurateur boyfriend, Luc Rouget, one of his matchboxes promoting his new restaurant is found on the body of a murdered young woman. But before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York.
The distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic Bureau has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel. Alex prepares the alleged victim to testify, but when a second body is found with Luc’s matchbox, she begins to fear that the two cases may not be as unrelated as she thought, and that uncovering the sordid secrets of the city’s most wealthy and powerful could cost her and her loved ones everything they hold dear.

I used to enjoy this series. Sadly, this is the last for me. Alex is no longer a sympathetic character, too dependent on friends, judgmental, and egotistical. The plot was a mishmash borrowed from the headlines. Forced myself to finish reading it only because I was angry I wasted $12.99 on it! Boring, disorganized, improbable, enough said!
I read Fairstein because she normally has terrific plots, great characters and extensive insight into the historical minutiae of New York City. This effort was mailed in and the story's tabloid life exceeded any patience I had to finish the book.
