As a former Assistant DA Linda Fairstein knows her stuff and writes convincingly well about police procedural but in this novel we also get a look at the depths of the New York Public Library with its rare fist editions and hidden rooms. All in all a fascinating and suspenseful thriller.

Synopsis

Lethal Legacy by Linda Fairstein

When Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cooper is summoned to Tina Barr's apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side, she finds a neighbour convinced that the young woman has been assaulted. But the terrified victim, a conservator of rare books and maps, denies that and refuses to co-operate with Alex and the police investigators. Tina disappears, and then another woman is found murdered in the same apartment, with an extremely valuable book at her side. The book has probably been stolen, but from whom and how? Pursuing the murderer Alex is drawn into the strange and privileged world of rich and secretive book collectors, where avarice and greed is as strong an inheritance as wealth..

In a beguiling mix and history and suspense Linda Fairstein takes readers on a breath-taking ride through collections of beautiful first editions, supposedly 'lost' atlases, and deep into the hidden rooms and tunnels of the great New York Public Library.

Reviews

Entertaining.... Full of fun information about the NYPL * Publishers Weekly * Fascinating...curiosity picqued, readers will surely want to find out more * Booklist * [The characters'] adventures are reminiscent of the quests of Indiana Jones or National Treasure. Bibliophiles and Fairstein fans are in for a treat * Library Journal * A nifty mystery that starts off as a harrowing missing-person-homicide case, but blossoms into something far deeper. Lethal Legacy is great-my personal favorite in this bestselling series * Harlan Coben *
