The 19th book in this amazing series opens with the shooting death of Alex's boss, the District Attorney, Paul Battaglia. Alex finds herself being treated more as a suspect than a witness when the FBI steps in. The US Attorney seems to have a problem with Alex, but they've never met, so what could he have against her? NYPD Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace are trying to investigate the case even though they've been ordered to stand down. That has never stopped them before ... it certainly won't stop them now. The more answers they find, the more questions they need to ask. Who would want the DA dead? Why had he seemed to be angry with Alex for months before his death? Who would have anything to gain? DEADFALL takes the reader on an astonishing journey from the the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to an animal sanctuary in Montana to a stint in a mental hospital to the Bronx Zoo. They meet good people and lots of bad people. With each and every book in this series, I have learned more about the history of New York City than I would never have known otherwise. And of course, there is always Final Jeopardy to count on. I have followed this author for years and always look forward to a new Alex Cooper book. All these books can be read as stand-alones, but it's so much more entertaining to start at the very beginning. 5 Stars for DEADFALL. 5 Stars for the series. Many thanks to the author / Penguin Group Dutton / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of DEADFALL.

Quite simply, one of the best books I have read all year! Linda Fairstein takes Alex, Mike, and Mercer on a twisty tale through the Zoological Society of New York to the wilds of Montana. Her descriptive detail to the characters' surroundings, as well as insight to their deep feelings and battles, makes this a page turner. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and am anxiously awaiting the next Alex Cooper book! Five stars!

Deadfall was wicked with twist, just like an adult beverage
As to be expected, the characters are smart, creative thinkers that never quit. The plot twists are sensible and believable. Best of all I haven't been able to guess the ending. In most all of the stories,
