Now available, a boxed eBook set of Linda Fairstein’s first three Alex Cooper mysteries: Final Jeopardy, Likely to Die, and Cold Hit.

Linda Fairstein’s first novel, Final Jeopardy, introduces the Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cooper, whose job description matched Fairstein’s own as Manhattan’s top sex crimes prosecutor. The author’s “two decades as a prosecutor of sex crimes imbues Final Jeapardy with riveting authenticity” (Vanity Fair), and it was made into a television movie starring Dana Delaney.  

In Likely to Die, New York City’s oldest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her office, where she has been sexually assaulted and designated by the cops as a “likely to die.” By the time assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper has plunged into the case, it’s a high-profile murder investigation. As Alex's passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers that she is the next target for lethal violence. For readers who “like the science of Patricia Cornwell and the legal strategy of John Grisham, this one’s for you” (The New Orleans Times-Picayune).

In Cold Hit, the silk-clad body of a woman is pulled from the waters at Manhattan's northern tip. Alex races against the clock with the hope 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 Eastside auction houses, Alex discovers she may be marked as an expendable commodity in a chilling and deadly scheme. “A skillfully executed plot, by a crime novelist whose powerful characters are drawn from her real life expertise. Absorbing, intricately woven—bring on the next” (Patricia Cornwell).

I've loved LF's books right along and I'm currently loading them onto my NOOK in place of the entire printed set. But reading the first book of the set (Final Jeopardy) is a nightmare of digging through typos. Some are unavoidable from the difference in formatting between print books and e-books. But some are unexplainable and unforgivable. Her boyfriend "Jed" is routinely written as "led" all through it as if someone used the "Change All" button in spellcheck. Weird punctuation, spaces missing between words, hundreds of misspelled and totally missing words... the editors ahould be ashamed of themselves. Additionally, there are no links at the beginning to connect to the second and third books of the trilogy. You have to literally skim through looking for the next book. No thought or planning at all! Hopefully the individual editions are better executed. I've just started the second book in this set (Likely to Die) so I don't know how #2 and #3 will compare for mistakes and readability.

I don't care for the writing of someone who single handedly condemned the lives of five black and latino children back in 1989, and who, to this day doesn't acknowledge her wrongdoings. Its actually insane that these men have now been exonerated since 2002 and she has had a successful career as a novelist since. As this information is just now coming to light to a new generation, we seek to correct what our justice system has failed to do. I, a latino college student and budding writer will be boycotting my favorite store's services until all works of Linda Fairstein are pulled from the shelves, and online stores, an action, I hope and know many of my peers will take part in. I ask you Barnes & Noble and its customers from the bottom of my heavy heart to disconnect your store from, this author and to not purchase this book. Thank you.
