Deadfall (Signed Book) (Alexandra Cooper Series #19)
Hunting a killer within New York's urban jungle becomes the biggest case of Alexandra Cooper's career in New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein's latest unputdownable thriller.
 
A wild heart beats within New York City. Amid concrete and skyscrapers, the Wildlife Conservation Society works to preserve and protect the animal kingdom both within and beyond the borders of the five boroughs. But dangerous creatures don't always have claws and fangs, as Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper and NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace know all too well. Predators lurk close to home, and in the aftermath of the shocking drive-by murder of an important city employee—someone Alex has worked with for years—the trio must discover who the bigger snake is: the killer or the victim.
 
Investigations into the death provide more questions than answers, as a tangled mess of secrets slowly comes to light. From bribes to secret societies, from big-game hunting to the illegal animal trade, from New York City zoos to behind closed doors in government buildings, Alex will have her work cut out for her if she wants to uncover the truth—and uphold the integrity of the office she has so proudly served.
 
Deadfall proves once again why Linda Fairstein is hailed as "a champion teller of detective tales."*

The 19th book in this amazing series opens with the shooting death ...
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,
