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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 21, 2012 – A too slavish devotion to the details of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case of 2011 undermines Fairstein s 14th legal thriller featuring her alter ego, Manhattan sex crimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper (after 2011 s Silent Mercy). While Cooper is vacationing with her lover, restaurateur Luc Rouget, in a village outside Cannes, France, the discovery of a former employee of his, Lisette Honfleur, floating dead in a forest pond threatens to spoil their holiday. Soon after, Alex s boss demands she return to New York City to deal with a firestorm. Mohammed Gil-Darsin (aka MGD), head of the World Economic Bureau, has been arrested following an accusation of rape leveled at him by a hotel maid. Just as in real-life, the prosecutors initial belief in the victim s account becomes less strong the more they learn about her. The major departure from the actual case arrives late while the subplot centering on deaths that may be linked to Rouget doesn t quite deliver, but as usual, ultimately, Fairstein does.

Customer Reviews


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!

Night Watch

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.
