Author Linda Fairstein
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
The Manhattan waterfront is one of New York City’s most beautiful vistas, boasting both the noble Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge, the world’s busiest for motor vehicles.
But in Devil’s Bridge, Assistant DA Alex Cooper will discover the menace that lurks in this seemingly benign corner of New York City as she and Detective Mike Chapman, in the midst of their own growing relationship, take on a case that forces them into their most vulnerable positions yet—apart from each other, as a killer’s twisted plan draws ever closer to home.
What did I think?
I don’t know where I’ve been hiding to not have heard about Linda Fairstein before. After all, ‘Devil’s Bridge’ is the 17th(!) novel in the Alexandra Cooper series. The story is great and gets you involved from the off. My only issue was that I had to ignore a couple of parts mentioned as I had no clue of what the reference was or the relevance to the book – like I said though, this is the 17th book in the series so it was bound to happen.
I did feel that at times the story dragged a little bit. Things could have sped up quite quickly instead of having more of an unnecessary build up in some parts. These specific parts didn’t really add to the story much. That being said, the bits that mattered did their job! There were points where my heart was in my mouth from the tension that had been built. I needed to find out what happened straight away!
The reason for the 3 heart review? Mainly because you knew that there was a huge back story to the Cooper and Chapman lives. That and the fact that the book was quite slow paced. I like my easy-to-follow, fast paced crimes and thrillers! I will try and get round to reading the other books in the Alexandra Cooper series, and then maybe I’ll have a better understanding of ‘Devil’s Bridge’!
My Rating? ♥♥♥
