    " Absolutely awful!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Regina | 2/17/2014

    " I love Linda Fairstein. Mysteries with history of New York included. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Macjest | 1/28/2014

    " Since Lethal Legacy was so interesting, I decided to go back to the beginning and try the first book in the series. I can definitely say that she has improved over the years. The thing that bugged me about this book was that it was a little too much about the characters personal life and not enough about a mystery. That's what I enjoyed about the previous book. Hopefully, she'll get better in latter books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marca | 1/21/2014

    " Crackling good Alex Cooper romp. Keeps the reader guessing until the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 12/29/2013

    " eh. Mystery novel. D.A. working/living in New York... I forget the plot and I just read it... the butler did it (not really). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlie Dennis | 12/25/2013

    " This was a good book and the success of the Alex Cooper series owes a lot to the success of this initial one. Good story because Fairstein writes what she knows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cvneeley Neeley | 12/24/2013

    " Very good series of police/legal mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 12/23/2013

    " First in Alexandra Cooper series. Cooper is a assistant district attorney in NYC and works specifically with their sex crimes division. (Think Law and Order SVU). The main murder plot was that an actress/friend of her is killed at while staying at Cooper's vacation home on Martha's Vineyard. This book sets up a lot of what I will assume will be returning characters. Lots of side info on detective work and prosecution of sex crimes that wasn't related to the main plot. Also some of the clues were easy to spot to figure out who the killer was. Decent read and will try another in the series. Some adult language and situations but not graphic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nedra Bennett | 12/22/2013

    " Excellent mystery in the Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper series. Another of the "can't put it down" variety. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 11/21/2013

    " A bit predictable, but enjoyable just the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Kalt | 10/13/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, especially since I didn't figure out the twist and that is uncommon. It's funny that although I was really engaged and interested, this wasn't a quick read. Going to put a hold on the next one in the series now. I'd love some more back story on Alex and Mike. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 9/10/2013

    " Exiting, great mystery. Looking forward to getting into this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debby | 9/6/2013

    " Good insight into the District Attorney's Office. Not much of a great suspense writer, but thought it was a good crime read. I got into her writing style about 1/3 of the way in, and really enjoyed the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mela Vanya | 8/12/2013

    " Much like Law and Order SVU, of course some good background on sex crimes. Would like to read a few more novels from Linda Fairstein "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luann | 3/11/2013

    " Linda Fairstein headed up the sex crimes unit of the NY district attorney's office for over 20 years. This is her first novel in a series and I have enjoyed every one of them. Her insight into the justice system truly helps bring her stories to life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 10/20/2012

    " Excellent! Had the opportunity to meet her in bookstore on Martha's Vineyard- very interesting woman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charmaine | 5/30/2012

    " Linda Fairstein novels are cool. She is one of the real life people that Law & Order SVU is based on as a real prosecuter in the Sex Crimes Division in New York! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 5/16/2012

    " When looking for novels set in New York City (preparing for our trip there), I discovered this writer--a former sex crimes prosecutor who writes books about the sex crimes unit in NYC. This is the precursor to "Law & Order: SVU" and her first novel. I will read more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Milla Diaz | 3/3/2012

    " The banter & humor were the only things I liked. The narrative was boring & tedious, the plot predictable and there were a lot of detours that distracted from the story's flow. It's the author's first book so I suppose that is to be expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 2/23/2012

    " Good enough to want to keep reading the next in the series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leanna | 7/24/2011

    " Easy read....a bit too much on criminal investigation detail. Entertaining, but figured out the plot pretty early on in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petula | 4/7/2011

    " Overall this was enjoyable, although there were many clues that hit readers on the head like anvils while the protagonist remained inexplicably oblivious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 3/26/2011

    " First book written/published by Ms. Fairstein. I like her style so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren | 11/28/2010

    " Really glad I was able to pick this up and read it. Think Law and Order Special Victims, except more realistic and more personal. Smart, sassy, quick, with a little mystery, a little personal, a little legal, and a lot of insight. Loved it! "
