The New York Times bestselling author of Death Dance plunges listeners into the mysterious depths of New York City.

Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper is deeply involved in a complicated, high-profile homicide case against defendant Brendan Quillian, a prominent young businessman charged with the brutal strangulation of his beautiful wife. His conviction is not a certainty: Quillian was conveniently out of town on the day of the killing, and his defense attorney seems to be one step ahead of Cooper’s effort to prove Quillian paid a hit man to commit the crime.

Halfway through the trial, a major catastrophe alters the course of Cooper’s case. A cataclysmic explosion rips through New York City’s Water Tunnel #3, a spectacular feat of modern engineering that will be completed years in the future. Was the blast caused by terrorism? Political retribution? Or was it merely an accident? Cooper is quickly drawn into the tragedy when she discovers a strange connection linking Quillian to the tunnel workers killed in the explosion.

Told with Linda Fairstein’s trademark blend of brilliant detective work, cutting edge forensics, and electrifying courtroom drama, Bad Blood is packed with the twists and turns that never fail to thrill her legions of devoted fans.

    " I couldn't really get into this book. I thought the characters were weak and the dialog not very convincing. Ho-hum. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kelly | 2/15/2014

    " This is the first book I've read in this series. I really liked Alexandra's character and her relationship with Mercer and Chapman. I think I will go back and start the series from the beginning. It seems like there is something between Alex and Mike, and I'm wondering if it is something that happened in the past, or something that will happen in the future. "

    " Part of a Reader's Digest. This one was okay, and while it was hard to put down at times it didn't really hold my interest and reviewing it a few weeks later I can't even remember much of what it was about. I fact, I'm mixing it up with another book and can't remember it at all. "
