Terminal City by Linda Fairstein
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's been a year since I read Linda Fairstein's Dark Angel and my reaction is the same. The best part of her books is New York City and the historical details she works into the story. In Terminal City, Fairstein continues her winning formula in this 16th entry in the Alexandra Cooper series.
The plot is interesting and the procedural information is fascinating. What I don't like is the way Alexandra Cooper, an assistant district attorney specializing in crimes against women and children, is treated like a child. Perhaps the portrayal is an accurate picture of how women are viewed in her field, but I find it discomfiting to see her demeaned even by those that supposedly care for her.
Bottom Line: If you love mysteries and are curious about NYC's Grand Central Terminal, by all means consider reading this book.
