Lethal Legacy

Lethal Legacy

When the police are called to a building on New York’s Upper East Side, Detective Mike Chapman and Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper respond quickly. A resident, Tina Barr, is alleged to have been assaulted, but she refuses to co-operate with their enquiries.

Within a day Alex and Chapman are back at the same building, confronted with the body of a woman, battered to death and with a mysterious jewel-encrusted book beside her. But the victim isn’t Tina Barr, and Tina has disappeared.

The book is part of a rare collection at the New York Public Library and Alex and Chapman are plunged into the deadly world of the super-rich – those who protect their fortunes and collections more carefully than other people’s lives.

Reviews

Entertaining.... Full of fun information about the NYPL
Publishers Weekly
A nifty mystery that starts off as a harrowing missing-person-homicide case, but blossoms into something far deeper. Lethal Legacy is great-my personal favorite in this bestselling series
Harlan Coben
[The characters'] adventures are reminiscent of the quests of Indiana Jones or National Treasure. Bibliophiles and Fairstein fans are in for a treat
Library Journal
Fascinating...curiosity picqued, readers will surely want to find out more
