About this audiobook

On a steamy August evening, after an exhausting day in the courtroom, Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cooper joins her longtime pals and partners-in-investigation, NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, at a somber crime site. In her ten years as a sex crimes prosecutor, Alex has seen many victims, but few more poignant than today's, pulled from the water with her hands and feet obscenely tied to a ladder.
Sleep comes uneasily after such a vision, but the knowledge that monsters, walk the city's streets, preying on the innocent, motivates Alex and her colleagues in their sometimes heartbreaking work. Perhaps this time they will be lucky. A "cold hit" will match DNA from the crime, scene with a suspect's DNA profile in the police database. Or is there a more sinister kind of "cold hit" that claimed the victim's life in this case? Who was she? Her elegant cloths and manicured nails suggest affluent connections, but just how well-connected surprises even Alex.
Illuminating and inspiring, Cold Hit takes us from the paint-chipped offices of cops and D.A.s to the elegant restaurants of Alex's privileged Upper East Side life. The contrast is stunning, but it's all part of the extraordinary world that author Linda Fairstein has brought so vividly to life in this magnificent novel of suspense.

    I like Alex, Mike and Mercer. This one kind of reminded me of one of her other books since Alex was being stalked and headed to the vineyard. Maybe because I listened to an abridged audio edition that I just didn't likeit as well as her other books.
