Read full description of the books:
I have to admit that it was the connection to Edgar Allan Poe that got me to read this book. I have a weakness for books with some connection with famous authors/actors/people. So, when I read the description of the book about a dead body being found entombed standing behind a brick wall in a house that Edgar Allan Poe had lived in, then I just had to read the book!
Since this is the first book I have read in this series, and also the very first book I have read by Linda Fairstein was I curious to see how the book would be. Sometimes it's easy to get into stories despite it being a book in the middle of a series. Luckily, I quickly found myself intrigued with the story and I absolutely loved the characters. I found Alexandra Cooper to be a woman to my liking. Recently single, but not a depressed, but a strong and competent woman that doesn't mind being single. Her tragic past with her dead fiance made me like her even more and I read the book wanting to get to know more about her. Then, we have her friends and colleagues detectives Mercer Wallace and Mike Chapman, both two great guys. I loved this dynamic trio and they made the book truly enjoyable. It didn't hurt that the story got pretty intensive now and then.
The cases in the book, both the rapist case and the-dead-woman-behind-the-wall case was interesting, though I have to admit that the case with the entombed was a bit more interesting to follow than the rapist case (hence the 4.5 rating). Still, it's a pretty awesome book and I have already ordered two books from Amazon since I want to know what happens next!
So, I have found this series to my liking and I'm looking forward to reading more books by Linda Fairstein.

Read information about the authorLinda Fairstein (born 1947) is one of America's foremost legal experts on crimes of violence against women and children. She served as head of the sex crimes unit of the Manhattan District Attorney's office from 1976 until 2002 and is the author of a series of novels featuring Manhattan prosecutor Alexandra Cooper.
Like Fairstein, Alex ('Coop') Cooper is in charge of the Special Victims Unit of the Office. She works closely with NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace. The 17th book in her best-selling series - DEVIL'S BRIDGE - launches in paperback in June, 2016. The 18th novel - KILLER LOOK - debuts on July 26th.
This year, Fairstein will debut a new series for Middle Grade readers - 8-12 years old. Her kid sleuth, Devlin Quick, appears in INTO THE LION'S DEN in November, 2016. The series is an homage to Nancy Drew, whose books inspired Linda's two careers - in crime fiction and in the law.
Ms. Fairstein is an honors graduate of Vassar College (1969) and the University of Virginia School of Law (1972). She joined the Manhattan District Attorney's office in 1972 as an Assistant District Attorney. She was promoted to the head of the sex crimes unit in 1976. During her tenure, she prosecuted several highly publicized cases, including the "Preppy Murder" case against Robert Chambers in 1986.
Linda Fairstein left the District Attorney's office in 2002, and has continued to consult, write, lecture and serve as a sex crimes expert for a wide variety of print and television media outlets, including the major networks, CNN, MSNBC among others. Ms. Fairstein is often called to provide her opinion on high profile prosecutions including: Michael Jackson's molestation charges in 2004, Kobe Bryant's sexual assault charges, and Scott Peterson's trial. She is also a frequent speaker on issues surrounding domestic abuse.
Ms. Fairstein lives in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard with her husband, Michael Goldberg. Her novels draw on Ms. Fairstein's legal expertise as well as her knowledge of and affection for the rich history of the city of New York.
