Publisher's Summary

Hunting a killer within New York's urban jungle becomes the biggest case of Alexandra Cooper's career in New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein's latest 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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No because it was not enjoyable.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The DA's murder was the most interesting. The least was Alexandra Cooper whining all the way through the book.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The male voices were better than the females. Whining. Barbara Rosenblat was disappointing the reading was not suspenseful it was just plain reading and whining.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I usually love Linda Fairstein....I feel like you are failing Alexandra Cooper....once strong now just weak and whiny. Yes, she has been through enough now she's so dependent on men. Too bad.

poor Alex

main character was too steeped in self pity for the book to be enjoyable. Poor little rich prosecutor.
