Coop s sudden disappearance is fraught with terrifying complications: scores of enemies she has made after a decade of putting criminals behind bars; a recent security breach with dangerous repercussions; and a new intimacy in her relationship with Mike, causing the Police Commissioner himself to be wary of the methods Mike will use to get Coop back... if he can. Once again, Linda Fairstein proves why she is one of the best crime fiction writers in America today * with her most intense Alexandra Cooper novel yet. *Nelson DeMille"show more
