One of the strongest of Fairstein's series yet, with a convoluted plot that keeps you guessing right up to the action-packed climax.

The Kills is the 6th book in the Alex Cooper series by Linda Fairstein. Cooper works for the Manhattan DA's office. She is trying a rape case that seems to be attached to the murder of an elderly woman. The US government, a dethroned king, and a little boy are in the center of the story. But can she find out how the cases are connected before she becomes another victim?

It is edge of your seat action until the end.

Not one of her best efforts, but good to keep the character details of their lives in order.

Enjoyable, but I don't think it's her best effort. I never got fully into the story until about halfway through -- in the end it was a good read, but I was worried for a bit. I still like this cast of characters and the Greater NYC settings.

I love this series. This is one of the best. Two unrelated murders are tied together in a most unusual way, with a little bit of history thrown in for good measure. It's a great book.

I have read Fairstein's Alex Cooper Series through book 6 and have thoroughly enjoyed the series thus far. Enjoyed all but book #5 which had way too much information about museum archives. This book deals with some antiquties, however, there is more of a human element to it. Enjoy how Fairstein develops her characters. Very believable and likable. The Kills is certainly a good read with good twists.
