It's going to be a tough trial. Manhattan sex-crimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper's case, involving an attack on investment banker Paige Vallis, would be difficult to prove without the latest development -- it seems that Paige has something to hide.

While Alex learns more of the sad details behind this increasingly puzzling rape case, colleague Mike Chapman is uptown in a decaying Harlem brownstone where 82-year-old McQueen "Queenie" Ransome has been murdered, her apartment ransacked.

Queenie's murder is only the first. Others follow, as the tragic strands of the Paige Vallis and McQueen Ransome cases converge in a poignant alliance of two women from very different worlds. Faced with formidable personal and professional choices, Alex faces a showdown where her wits and courage will be tested as never before.

With a winning combination of courtroom drama and historical detail, The Kills is stylish writing from a crime-writing star.

    " This plot left me feeling that I couldn't solve the mystery on my own. Somewhat confusing at times, but still a good murder mystery that leads to a part of the river (always in NYC) where bodies are always found, known as The Kills. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Meg Benjamin | 2/14/2014

    " The usual Byzantine plot. A little hard to keep track of but overall a great read. "

    " I am addicted to this series, even though I am not reading them in order. The story weaves and weaves until all the separate threads melt together into an exciting ending where all is revealed complete. "

    " Alex Cooper is busy prosecuting an alleged rapist, while Mercer and Champan are investigating the murder of an elderly woman in Harlem. Can it be possible that these two cases and their casts of players can be related? "
