The Kills

June 23, 2008

A couple people have recommended Linda Fairstein’s books to me, so I decided to try one. The Kills started a little slow for me (maybe because I was unfamiliar with the characters) but quickly reeled me in. Alexandra Cooper is an assistant DA working sex crimes in New York City. In the middle of a trial, her victim is murdered and then the accused is wounded. Things get more involved and complex from then on and she keeps you guessing until the end. By the way, the Kills refers to a section of the New York harbor.

I think this book rings true because Linda Fairstein was the head of Sex Crimes for the Manhattan DA’s office for 26 years. She has written 10 Alex Cooper novels and 1 non-fiction book. I will definitely be reading more of her work.
