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.
