"A superior piece of entertainment."
-- The Washington Post
"Fairstein...makes the legal issues more exciting than any high-speed chase."
-- Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
Kathy Reichs Fairstein has the expertise and the experience, and it shows. The Kills is a white-knuckle ride through the back roads of history, the side streets of New York, and the chilling world of unbounded greed.
John Sandford Linda Fairstein's knowledge of the criminal justice system explodes on these pages -- seamlessly plotted, spiked by razor-sharp dialogue and the knowledge of a lifelong insider.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I had a difficult time following the storyline because it jumped from one topic to another without explanation or conclusion of one thread before starting another. There was some interesting info about why the U.S. went off the gold standard but then the author went off on a tangent about Egypt's King Farouk and after pages of unnecessary descriptions, I said enough is enough. I suppose if I had stuck with it that the plot might have twisted back upon itself to explain how it tied in with the initial whodunit, but I'm too old to waste time like that.
Fairstein gets better and better (and she's always been great) - a lot of authors get popular, formulamatic and the books get thin and the characters lazy. Absolutely not the case with this author.
Even more compelling is to listen to Fairstein talk - you will come away with a new appreciation not only for her legal tenure, but the detail and research which go into her books. If you get the chance, do try and catch her on tour at book signings.
Great read - highly recommend.
This, like her other novels. continues an interesting cast of characters from earlier books, the detectives and other attorney's she works with and the interaction with her and each other working together as a team.
I like how it was all tied together, even though I figured that was the way the story was going.
Interesting banter between characters, and no surprise that many people die or fall to ruin due to greed.
Believable characters, informative and entertaining dialogue. Great story line.
I may re-read this story and always look forward to other works by this author.
