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. Download and start listening now!
