Renowned sex-crimes prosecutor and bestselling author Linda Fairstein sends her acclaimed heroine -- the stylish and steely-nerved D.A. Alexandra Cooper -- on a hunt for a killer inside New York City's glitzy art world.

Alexandra Cooper has seen many murder victims, but few more disturbing than the silk-clad body of a woman, her hands and feet tied to a ladder, pulled from the turbulent waters at Manhattan's northern tip. With her colleagues, including NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex races against the clock and hopes for a "cold hit" -- a DNA match that would reveal the identity of the murderer by linking the crime to someone already in the police database. But as the case pulls her into the exclusive world of East Side auction houses and cutting-edge Chelsea galleries, Alex discovers she may be marked as an expendable commodity in a chilling and deadly scheme....

The body is dragged out of the river tied to a ladder and without a name. But soon the police get an ID and Alexandra Cooper is on the hunt for whomever killed the beautiful gallery owner and art collector.

Balancing a new love life and a busy docket of cases, Alex - joined by police detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace - struggle to find clues to who may have wanted the woman dead: her estranged husband, her business partner, her lovers or is there someone else? And was she dealing in stolen artwork?

Fairstein has developed a wonderful set of characters and this is a true action-packed book that keeps you reading all the way through. But like some of these books, I wonder if an assistant district attorney would really get involved in an investigation and find herself in the midst of car chases and shoot outs?

I read all the Alexandra Cooper novels, but somehow had missed this "oldie." Maybe the thing I enjoy most about the series is the main character's relationship,banter, caring and support for each other. Or maybe it's the setting---each novel is a mini-history about NYC landmarks and sites. I like some of the cases more than others, but always am fascinated to learn history and trivia about NYC. It's never dry, always in the context of solving the mystery.

Cold Hit explored the world of wealthy art collecting and theft. Might be a bit dated (life before smart phones) but still a good read. I was especially interested to read about the High Line in its run down condition; on a recent trip to NYC I explored the newly redone High Line with its pleasant walks, trendy shops and restaurants.

I don't usually read mysteries unless there is a vampire, a witch or a werewolf involved. I took a chance on the Alex Cooper series by Fairstein, and I'm hooked. Generally by the time most of the characters in a novel have been introduced, I've figured out who the culprit is; not these books.
When I write a review, I don't give a synopsis of the story. Why would you read the book then? But I will tell you that I enjoyed it, was captivated by the plot line and the characters, and felt satisfied when it was finished. What more do you need?

Finally finished this one after skipping fifty of the last hundred pages! Don't think I missed anything important since the explanation was there at the end. It had never grabbed my interest but I was determined to finish. I lost track of the characters, their roles in the whole thing, and thought I would scream if I had to read much more unnecessary detail. I had read Fairstein several years ago but don't recall her being so verbose. Not sure I will read her in the future.

Knowing very little about pieces of artwork and how they come to be in collector's galleries, I found this book taught me something about the art world new and was another suspense filled books of Linda Fairstein.

I first learned that Linda Fairstein was an author on the show Sunday Morning and was immediately interested in reading her books. I loved her first two books, but I had a hard time getting through this book. I think it may have been the topic that I was not enthralled with. Although I am always interested in learning about new enterprises, I found theft in the art world to be extremely boring. Sorry, Linda Fairstein.

This is my second Fairs think book. I'm not a big fan of first person narratives, but she does a very nice job with this format. I also feel that I learn something in her books. In this case, it involved the art auction and art restoration processes. The plots are solid and not predictable. Very good read!
I began reading this series for a book club. I found it so interesting that I needed to continue. Alex Cooper is a wonderful heroine and I have learned something new from each book. Now waiting for thr next.
