Final Jeopardy - Alexandra Cooper, Bk 1 Author:Linda Fairstein Alex Cooper awakens one morning to news of her own brutal murder. Soon, Manhattan's top sex-crimes prosecutor discovers that the actual victim is film star Isabella Lascar, who had sought refuge at Alex's private retreat. Now it is up to Alex to find the killer before another victim surfaces.
So this is how the series starts. It's worth sticking with the stilted dialogue because the storytelling is strong, the characters are clearly drawn and delightful (the cast is quite large), and over the life of the series, Fairstein grows into quite a good writer.
First book in the Alex Cooper series. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and this book kicks it off well. They are well written with lots of historical facts and details and typically, it is not easy to predict the ending. If you are looking for a good series to read, this one is top notch with great relationships.
