Présentation de l'éditeur

When the body of a young woman is found in a suite at one of the most prestigious hotels in Manhattan, Assistant DA Alex Cooper and Detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace find themselves hunting for an elusive killer whose only signature is carving a carefully drawn symbol, which bears a striking resemblance to train tracks, into his victims' bodies.

When a second body with the same bloody symbol is discovered in a deserted alleyway next to the Grand Central Terminal building, Alex and Mike must contend with the station's expansive underground tunnels and century-old dark secrets to find a killer who appears to be cutting a deadly path straight to the heart of the city . . .

International bestselling author Linda Fairstein returns with a breathless, explosive thriller exploring the dark side of New York City, as only she can.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Alex Cooper stumbles 28 juin 2014
Par Menagerie - Publié sur
Fairstein's latest thriller is very much the same as her last couple of ones. She entwines her murder mystery with history of a particular slice of NYC. This time it is Grand Central. While it is always fun to learn about the history of these places, the way she incorporates them is becoming increasingly awkward with each book. There were several points where the text sounded more like a lecture or a treatise than a novel, and it distracts from the story.

However, that is small beans compared to how badly the character of Alex continues to degrade. When Fairstein started this series, Alex Cooper was strong and smart and a match for any killer. She took matters in to her own hands. In the last several books she has become the person that things are done to. She is always stressed, scared, shaking and swigging so much booze that you wince for her liver. The men in her life lead her around by the nose. Alex is the one being saved. She might come up with some information or get a witness to spill some details, but overall she is largely a victim. That is not the Alex Cooper that we have come to know and love.

Another major problem is Fairstein's attempt to put Alex and Mike Chapman together. I've thought the maturation of that relationship was long overdue, but I get the feeling that Fairstein is being pushed into it. The scenes between Alex and Mike are written so poorly that they are painful to read. Mike isn't just fast with a quip these days; he's a total jerk. And Alex is a jerk right back to him. They go from insulting each other to publicly discussing their possible future union. It makes no sense and it is not believable at all.

There is another relationship in Alex's life that makes no sense; Battaglia. From the start he has been a real a-hole. He's narcissistic, petty, vain, and power-hungry. He treats Alex, and pretty much everyone else, like crap. Yet in each book, Fairstein makes it a point to have Alex say how much she admires him. Why? He seems to stand for everything that Alexandra Cooper hates. I have never thought her relationship with him made sense and it makes less and less sense as the series goes on.

Like some other authors who write long series, Patricia Cornwell comes to mind, Fairstein has started to lose the thread of a much-beloved character. If you go back and read the first five Alex Cooper novels you see a different woman. Fairstein's fascination with history and her own politics are coming to the forefront far too much. (In case you wondered, she obviously hates Mayor Bloomberg with a passion as the mayor of NY in this book is a complete dunce.) If she has run out of stories or is no longer interested in writing about Alex, then it is time to bid the character a fond farewell. She deserves better than to become this mewling, whining victim that Fairstein has given us in the last few books. Let her roar as she once did, or let her go quietly into the night. I will read the next book but if there is no improvement, I will sadly abandon the series.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Snooze-worthy 4 juillet 2014
Par Arlene C. Carpenter - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This author was once one of my favorites but the last few books have become formulaic. The central mystery is hardly a mystery at all. At least half the book is devoted to a history of Grand Central Terminal. While that may be an interesting story, it's not what I want to read in a detective story. The ongoing "love story" with Mike is beyond childish. This is the last book I will read by this author.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I have read and enjoyed all of Fairstein's books 13 juillet 2014
Par Julianne M. Zedalis - Publié sur
I have read and enjoyed all of Fairstein's books, but not this one. When I read, I usually savor each word; instead, I found myself rushing through the last few chapters to make it terminate more quickly. What happened to the strong, intelligent, confident, and competent Alex Cooper we've come to love? She's been replaced with a whining adolescent who's descending into alcoholism. With respect to Alex's blossoming relationship with Mike Chapman, either get it on or let it go. With their sniping and sarcasm, it seems like Alex and Mike are on the verge of divorce rather than heading toward the altar. I've been to Grand Central Terminal and the Oyster Bar and appreciate the historical references Fairstein weaves through her novels. Unfortunately, this one didn't stop me in my tracks.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Murder, a tour of NYC's Grand Central Terminal, plus 22 juin 2014
Par Judie Amsel - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
In this latest Alex Cooper novel, the assistant DA and her partners, Detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, seek the killer of a young woman whose body was found in a supposedly unregistered room in New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. A second body found in a nearby alley soon after appears to have been committed by the same person because of unusual markings carved on both bodies.
The investigation quickly leads them to Grand Central Terminal where, true to Linda Fairstein's form of visiting NYC landmarks, the reader is taken on an informative exploratory tour of the structure, from its sub-basements to the tunnels and up to highest levels. The history of the building and its surrounding area is also presented. The tunnels have become home to many homeless people and their culture is examined.
To complicate the situation, the President of the United States is due to come to NYC to address the United Nations in a two days and plans to arrive by train at the Terminal.
The teams' familiar routines continue: Jeopardy, relationships, eating and drinking together.
The relationship of the new mayor of New York to the police department and prosecutor's office is also discussed. The day before I read this book, the mayor announced that $40 million was being paid to the Central Park Five, five minority teenagers arrested and jailed for the rape and attack on a white jogger in Central Park ten years ago. Another person later admitted he had committed the crime without anyone else being involved. Linda Fairstein was the prosecutor for the case and in a television interview disagrees with the mayor's actions for the reasons given in the book. [...]. [...]

The book has some unnecessary repetition, e.g. mentioning Alex's exact height more than once. It also has a subplot that doesn't add to the plot.

No question this novel has to be Linda Fairstein's swan song. It was so dull and wordy that I ended up flipping through the last third of the book and put it down feeling hard done by. This is not the Fairstein I remember from earlier books and Alexandra is so far from the bright intelligent woman she once was it's pathetic. And, I'm so sick of hearing the same drivel about the wedding eve car crash, the miraculous invention that made her rich, the smell of Luc's sweaters in the Nantucket chest of drawers that she's going to send him rather than just throw them in the bin. Yuck to all of it. I'm with you early reviewers who think that a love relationship between Coop and Mike is just ridiculous. Bye-Bye Coop and bye-bye Linda.
