Samenvatting

New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein&;s &;Grisham-esque page turner&; (Time) puts smart and savvy assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper directly in the line of fire as she tries to find a killer in the oldest and largest hospital in New York City.

New York City&;s oldest and largest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her blood-soaked office, where she has been sexually assaulted, stabbed, and designated by the cops as a &;likely to die.&; By the time Alex has plunged into the case, it&;s a high-profile, media-infested murder investigation with a growing list of suspects from among those who roam the hospital&;s labyrinthine halls. As Alex&;s passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers this hospital is not a place of healing but of deadly peril&;and that she is the next target for lethal violence.

The real-life work of sex-crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein brought &;riveting authenticity&; (Vanity Fair) to her bestselling debut novel, Final Jeopardy. Now in this high-style thriller that sweeps from Manhattan to London to Martha&;s Vineyard, Likely to Die is an exhilarating tale from a justice system insider and provocative novelist.

Recensie(s)

Patricia Cornwell An authoritative and scary view from one who has battled evil and locked it away. Fairstein just gets better. Get to know her if you dare. Hilma Wolitzer New York Daily News A first-rate mystery novel by someone who writes about what she knows and truly knows about what she writes. Long Island Newsday (NY) As real as tomorrow's tabloid headlines, as gritty as a police stakeout, as graphic as an autopsy, Likely to Die is a fearsomely authentic whodunit that manages to raise important issues about the nature, and the horror, of sex crimes. Chicago Tribune This gritty, harsh book has a strong sense of authenticity. The New York Times Book Review Stylish...engaging...Linda Fairstein's second novel takes its title from police slang for a crime victim whose death is inevitable. As in her previous novel, Final Jeopardy, the author places a smart and driven Manhattan prosecutor named Alexandra Cooper at the center of the action. People Step aside, girls. Here comes Manhattan sex creimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper in a red Escada suit, trailing a cloud of Chanel No. 5....Fairstein gives her sleek -- and single -- D.A. a whopping whodunit....There are plenty of suspects to keep Alex clicking along in her Manolo Blahnik heels...and sizzling sexual tension between Alex and NYPD detective Mike Chapman. Susan Issacs This is no I-guess-this-must-be-what-it's-like fantasy of how the criminal justice system operates. Final Jeopardy is a smart and gutsy insider's whodunit. But the novel has more than authenticity going for it. It's got a terrific protagonist. Alexandra Cooper is a tough, dedicated assistant district attorney and a warmhearted, funny, and insightful dame. Linda Fairstein has done one hell of a job. People A whopping whodunit...With its taut plot and classy setting, Likely to Die is an uptown act.
