Linda Fairstein's novels are always excellent reading, almost as much for the information about various New York institutions and sites as for the mysteries themselves. There's a little too much "fashion" information for my taste, but then, I got over being a maniac shopper some time ago.
New York City's oldest and largest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her blood-soaked office, where she has been sexually assaulted, stabbed, and designated by the cops as a "likely to die." By the time Alex has plunged into the case, it's a high-profile, media-infested murder investigation with a growing list of suspects from among those who roam the hospital's labyrinthine halls. As Alex's passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers this hospital is not a place of healing but of deadly peril -- and that she is the next target for lethal violence.
a high style thriller that sweeps from manhatten to london to martha s vineyard. likely to die is a tale from a justice insider.
This is a good book. This is a very good book. Alexandra Cooper and Mike Chapman make a good team. You won't be disappointed if you get request "Likely to Die".
A high-style thriller that sweeps from Manhattan to London to Martha's Vineyard, Likely to Die is an exhilirating tale from a justice system insider and provocative novelist.
Excellent second book in the Alexandra Cooper series.
Th author writes about situations with which she is well acquainted; she was a D.A. in the Manhattan Sex crimes unit for 25 years. Keeps yopu guessing all the way through.
Couldn't put this book down!
it was a good read,but not as good as her others.
Another of Linda Fairstein's excellent mysteries.
Another fun romp around New York City with Alex Cooper and the boys.
Dark and wonderful reading. The author is a former sex-crimes prosecutor for New York City and brings "riveting authenticity" to her novels. A well known doctor is sexually assaulted, stabbed and designated by the cops as "likely to die" and our assistant DA Alexandra Cooper soon discovers that the hospital's halls are not a place of healing but of deadly peril and that she is the next target.

Linda Fairstein's books are really good books. They keep you guessing until the end.
Another good one from Linda Fairstein. She never fails to deliever thrills & chills.
