Where’s the Beef?
Or in this case, the Prosecutor?
I have the entire series so I was eagerly awaiting the release of this one. It’s excellent – up to a point. Yes, there’s a lot going on but that’s to be expected in an Alex Cooper story, and the excitement keeps mounting.
One of the Fairstein trademarks is a tour of a New York landmark, usually as Alex is fighting for her life. I learn something every time I read one of her books.
However – spoiler alert – it fails at the end. I wanted to see Alex take the baddie apart in one of her brilliant courtroom scenes. Instead, he’s singing like a canary in the police station while she’s trying to find a way out of the underground tunnels. This ending seemed rushed to me.
