Description

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. . . .

  • (4/5)
    I docked half a star from The Kills because Alex Cooper heard a strange noise in her house -- which happens to have a fireplace -- and didn't think to snatch up the poker before she investigated.

    Alex and Mike are at it again trying to solve crimes with out aAlex getting shot. The kills has plenty of excitement and intrigue. The reader is treated to the sites and sounds of New York. A wonderful series for police procedural lovers.
  • (4/5)
    Good listing but dragged out listen to the abridge one
  • (3/5)
    I didn't like this Alexandra Cooper novel as well as the others I had read. Complicated plot involving the theft of valuable old coins from an old women who had taken them from Egyptian dictator when she was young model but now is living almost in poverty. This overlaps a child abuse case in contrived way. There's stalkers, treasury department, conspiracy, local authorities and way too much thrown in to this story.
  • (4/5)
    Paige Vallis, a powerful businesswoman, has charged a man she dated with attacking her. But during the trial, as Alex represents Paige, she soon suspects her client is hiding something vital to the prosecution. By the time the gutsy prosecutor discovers what it is, Paige is dead, and Alex has been pulled into a case that now involves pornography, priceless coins and international politics.
  • (3/5)
    Part of the Alexandra Cooper (a Manhattan sex crimes prosecutor just like the author) series, the plot was too complicated for me, involving coin collecting, rich people, and not-so-rich people. For a New Yorker, Alex drove an awful lot (perhaps as a DA, she didn't feel safe on public transportation).
  • (3/5)
    Fairstein is a good suspense writer. However, I like some others more.
  • (3/5)
    Had read it, but re-read it in my quest to read the Alex Cooper novels in order. Didn't like this one as much as others, felt too contrived but it was kind of cool to weave the Double Eagle and its myths into a story. Looking forward to seeing how Mike's relationship progresses and for the love of moo, Alex, kick Jake to the curb!Finished enroute to Singapore from Melbourne. Not sure if I'm going to hang on to it and pass it on at work and/or to a flatmate or release it at Kansai--not thinking a wild release in Singapore would be smart.
