Alexandra Cooper has seen many murder victims, but few more disturbing than the silk-clad body of a woman pulled from the waters at Manhattan's northern tip. Alex races against the clock and hopes for a "cold hit" -- a DNA match that would reveal the identity of the murderer by linking the crime to someone already in the police database. But as the case pulls her into the exclusive world of East side auction houses, Alex discovers she may be marked as an expendable commodity in a chilling and deadly scheme...

    " Slow go but I enjoy the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karen | 2/12/2014

    " This was okay but not up to Fairstein's earlier books. I enjoyed reading about the underside of the art world, but there were too many threads that the author was trying to keep up in the air, and it made for confusing reading. For example, Mercer, one of the cop protagonists, got shot badly...and quite a bit of time and writing was spent on him. But at the end of the book, no attention was paid to his condition... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Samantha | 2/6/2014

    " This is the first book by Ms. Fairstein that I've read. It was enjoyable. I especially enjoyed the art history in the books. I'm not into art that much so it was fascinating to me. It was something different for me. I did however like the mystery itself. Author had some good plot twists in there. I liked the characters interplay with each other and how you could see their bonds. I think I made the mistake of reading the third book first however. They speak of other cases which I'm assuming are in the first books. I plan on picking those up soon. It's not early Cornwell or Sandford but I would still highly recommend this book to others looking for a murder mystery. "
