Likely to Die (Mass Market)
New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein’s “Grisham-esque page turner” (Time) puts smart and savvy assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper directly in the line of fire as she tries to find a killer in the oldest and largest hospital in New York City.
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.
The real-life work of sex-crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein brought “riveting authenticity” (Vanity Fair) to her bestselling debut novel, Final Jeopardy. Now in this high-style thriller that sweeps from Manhattan to London to Martha’s Vineyard, Likely to Die is an exhilarating tale from a justice system insider and provocative novelist.
