Read Deadfall Online Free - Hunting a killer within New York's urban jungle becomes the biggest case of Alexandra Cooper's career in New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein's latest unputdownable thriller.
A wild heart beats within New York City. Amid concrete and skyscrapers, the Wildlife Conservation Society works to preserve and protect the animal kingdom both within and beyond the borders of the five boroughs. But dangerous creatures don't always have claws and fangs, as Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper and NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace know all too well. Predators lurk close to home, and in the aftermath of the shocking drive-by murder of an important city employee someone Alex has worked with for years the trio must discover who the bigger snake is: the killer or the victim.
Investigations into the death provide more questions than answers, as a tangled mess of secrets slowly comes to light. From bribes to secret societies, from big-game hunting to the illegal animal trade, from New York City zoos to behind closed doors in government buildings, Alex will have her work cut out for her if she wants to uncover the truth and uphold the integrity of the office she has so proudly served.

I am always fascinated by the information that has become such an integral part of Linda Fairstein’s Alex Cooper books. The information and histories she shares about New York City almost becomes more interesting than the story. Almost, but not quite, because Fairstein manages to pull the reader...

OBS this review spoilers the ending of the previous book!
Entombed, book seven in the Alexandra Cooper series was the first book I read by Fairstein and I loved it. Since then have I read two other books in the series before I read this one. One of them was the book previous (and the other is the...

Was this one of her best? My opinion---No. I like the characters and having been reading since her first book. I like that the main character is strong minded and had a bit of a problem with her meltdown and did not care for some of the interactions between "Coop" and Mike. Mike is a bit bossy an...

Linda Fairstein has done it again. An action filled, suspense drama that held my interest so much that I could not put it down.
This time, Linda takes us to yet another New York City landmark, the Bronx Zoological (something I can't remember and it's not on their website, sorry), it can't be calle...
