By Linda Fairstein
Reissue of the first in Linda Fairstein's gripping and authentic series of crime novels featuring Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper
The days of Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper often start off badly, but she's never before had to face the morning by reading her own obituary.
It doesn't take long to sort out why it was printed: a woman's body has been found in a car rented in Alex's name in the driveway of her weekend home. It's not so easy to work out why her lodger - an acclaimed Hollywood star - was murdered, or to be sure that the killer had found the right victim.
As Alex's job is to send killers and rapists to jail there are plenty of suspects who might be seeking revenge, and whoever it is needs to be found before Alex's obituary gets reprinted...
