Date rape is always difficult to prove, and the case against New York consultant Andrew Tripping is no exception. Tripping and 36-year-old investment banker Paige Vallis had had dinner together three times before the March evening when he invited her to his apartment and attacked her. Or so she says. Manhattan Sex Crimes Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper needs to know all the facts if she is to find justice for Paige Vallis, but Paige seems to have something to hide. . . .

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 2/26/2011

    " This is a fairly run-of-the- mill novel. The plot is really rather far fetched and also fairly instantly forgettable. A book that one can carry around in a handbag to while away moments when waiting for a bus! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 12/29/2010

    " This was a pretty good mystery; liked it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valissa | 12/2/2010

    " Love the bookswap! this wasn't bad, as far as mysteries go. I felt there were too many characters, too many mysteries, but she maintained and there was only one part that I scoffed at. nice easy and very entertaining for a sick day read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 10/18/2010

    " A little more convoluted plot than usual, but it all hangs together in the end. Good book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 9/5/2010

    " Flat. Pretentious. Unbelievable. Agatha Cristiesque in the worst possible way- explains what really happened in a narrative at the end. One time and out for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 7/4/2010

    " Fairstein is a good suspense writer. However, I like some others more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 3/27/2010

    " The beginning of the book was a little slow. I had a hard time trying to figure out how the rape of Paige Vallis was going to tie in to the synopsis on the cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg | 1/5/2010

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emma | 12/9/2009

    " took a while to get into, found there was too many story lines in it and was a bit confusing at times, not too bad but was disappointed by the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marca | 9/21/2009

    " Great mystery - lots of seemingly disconnected events eventually tie together. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 2/26/2009

    " I'm surprised that this book isn't on the list already. It is one of the series with Alex, the blond d.a. which takes place in NYC. Kills refers to the bodies of water around Manhattan, but could also refer to murders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 2/20/2009

    " A; Very good. Another page turner from Linda. Alex is a great character to follow.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sparhawk | 11/29/2008

    " As usual another good read from this author. This is the 6th book of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 10/28/2008

    " 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. "
