Release date: July 30, 2013 | Series: Alex Cooper
Perennial New York Times bestselling crime novelist Linda Fairstein explores the rich—and little-known—history of New York’s City’s Central Park in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel, Death Angel.
In her fourteen bestsellers, Linda Fairstein has enthralled millions of fans with her trademark style that infuses fascinating New York City history with breathtaking suspense. She continually creates some of the most authentic and compelling crime thrillers of our time thanks in part to her extensive experience as a New York City prosecutor.
With Death Angel, Fairstein takes readers into the storied history of New York’s Central Park as Assistant DA Alex Cooper and Detective Mike Chapman race to track down a serial killer before yet another young woman is found dead. Is the body found in the Ramble the first victim of a deranged psychopath, or are other missing women in years past whose remains have never been found connected to this savage attack? Is this enormous urban park a sanctuary in the middle of the city—as it seems to the thousands of New Yorkers and tourists who fill it every day—or is it a hunting ground for a killer with a twisted mind?
Once again, Linda Fairstein will thrill both longtime fans and new readers with an explosive page-turner filled with a shocking realism that only she can deliver.
