Quotes & Awards

  • “An authoritative and scary view from one who has battled evil and locked it away. Fairstein just gets better. Get to know her if you dare.” 

    Patricia Cornwell

  • “Stylish...engaging...Linda Fairstein's second novel takes its title from police slang for a crime victim whose death is inevitable. As in her previous novel, Final Jeopardy, the author places a smart and driven Manhattan prosecutor named Alexandra Cooper at the center of the action.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A whopping whodunit...With its taut plot and classy setting, Likely to Die is an uptown act.”


  • “A first-rate mystery novel by someone who writes about what she knows and truly knows about what she writes.” 

    New York Daily News

    " Alexandra Cooper is a very intreguing character and has good friends watching her back, which is necessary in her line of work. Not as guesome as a Tammy Hoag or gory as Patricia Caldwell, but interesting in the lines of sex crimes. "
