With her newest Alexandra Cooper novel, New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein delivers another breakneck thriller that captures the essence of New York City—its glamour, its possibilities, and its endless capacity for darkness. In Terminal City, Fairstein turns her attention to one of New York’s most iconic structures—Grand Central Terminal.

From the world’s largest Tiffany clock decorating the 42nd Street entrance to its spectacular main concourse, Grand Central has been a symbol of beauty and innovation in New York City for more than one hundred years. But the “world’s loveliest station” is hiding more than just an underground train system. When the body of a young woman is found in the tower suite of the Waldorf Astoria, Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper and detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace find themselves hunting for an elusive killer whose signature is carving a carefully drawn symbol into his victims’ bodies—a symbol that bears a striking resemblance to train tracks.

When a second body bearing the same bloody symbol is discovered in a deserted alleyway right next to the terminal building, all attention shifts to the iconic transportation hub. With the President of the United States set to arrive for a United Nations meeting at the week’s end, Alex and Mike must contend with Grand Central’s expansive underground tunnels and century-old dark secrets—as well as their own changing relationship—to find a killer who appears to be cutting a deadly path straight to the heart of the city.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Alex Cooper is a fascinating heroine...based on the equally fascinating life of her creator.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine

  • “Fairstein’s novels combine a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit crime with a piece of New York City history. Terminal City is her best book yet with a look at Grand Central Terminal alongside a baffling murder. Alex Cooper and her colleagues have never been more compelling characters, but what makes this novel work so well is the illuminating look behind the architecture of both the justice system and the train station.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • “The area of Midtown Manhattan around Grand Central Terminal, with its host of landmark buildings, serves as the backdrop for bestseller Fairstein’s gripping sixteenth novel featuring ADA Alexandra ‘Coop’ Cooper…The tour of Midtown, both above and below ground, is alone worth the price of admission.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The real star of the series is Manhattan itself. Fairstein describes both the train station and some of Manhattan’s iconic eateries in loving detail, giving readers a glimpse of NYC’s glamour as well as its dark side.”
