her thirteen bestsellers, Linda Fairstein has taken millions of fans inside
sinister worlds that most of us can’t even imagine. Thanks to her extensive
experience as a New York City prosecutor, she creates situations that are
stunning for both their compulsive readability and their authenticity. Taking
Alexandra Cooper into the fascinating world of New York City’s most beloved and
storied restaurants, Night Watch continues her tradition of
breathtaking suspense storytelling.
after Alexandra Cooper arrives in France to visit her boyfriend and famed
restaurateur, Luc Rouget, her vacation in paradise is cut short when a young
woman from the village is found murdered. The only evidence discovered on the
body is one of Luc’s matchboxes promoting his new restaurant in New York. But
before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York to handle a
high profile case.
Mohammed Gil-Darsin, the distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic
Bureau, has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel.
As the world watches in fascination to see how the scandal will unfold,
Alex finds her attention torn between preparing the alleged victim to testify
and a murder case with ties too close to home. A second body is found with
Luc’s matchbox—this time in Brooklyn—and Alex 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.
