Bad Blood

Click for availability and more information Bad Blood, by Linda Fairstein

In her ninth mystery featuring Alexandra Cooper as a Manhattan assistant district attorney, Fairstein has written a fast-paced and intriguing story involving, in part, long simmering family disputes among those who build water tunnels below New York City. Fairstein obviously did her research well and the details about these tunnels are not only fascinating, but come into play as Cooper uncovers decades-old murder crimes. Other threads of the story involve the murder trial of a well known New Yorker accused of murdering his wife and aspects of Cooper's private life. Above or below ground, New York City comes alive with Fairstein's great writing and she provides a highly-recommended reading experience.

I love how she picks different landmarks in NYC to highlight in each book. I particularly liked Entombed, set in the NY Botanical Garden and loosly bringing in the life of Edgar Allen Poe. My first book by her was Bone Vault which looked behind the scenes at the Natural History Museum and The Cloisters.
Good suggestion!
