Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein delivers a heart-pounding thriller that explores the dark secrets of Manhattan's iconic fashion scene in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel.
New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage's death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion.
With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime - and the possible homicide - beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well hidden, even from those closest to him - just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk.
Linda Fairstein was chief of the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney's office in Manhattan for more than two decades and is America's foremost legal expert on sexual assault and domestic violence. Her Alexandra Cooper novels are international best sellers and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She lives in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard.

What the Critics Say

"With Killer Look, Linda Fairstein proves once again why she is the 'Queen of Intelligent Suspense.'" (Lee Child)
"Barbara Rosenblat offers her usual high-quality performance in Linda Fairstein's eighteenth Alexandra Cooper novel. Since she's narrated every one of the audiobooks featuring the Manhattan prosecutor, Rosenblat knows the characters well, and her portrayals of 'Coop' and sidekicks Mike and Mercer are spot-on.... Each character's voice is distinct and immediately recognizable. Rosenblat is just plain amazing." (AudioFile)

When did Alexandra get to be so needy?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Alexandra Cooper's character has been strong and competent in past stories. In this one she devolves into a clingy, helpless, appendage to MIke Chapman. I understand that she experienced a trauma (I need to go back and find that story because I don't remember the details of her kidnapping), but this side of her is disappointing and tiresome. Can't we ever have a female protagonist who can take care of herself?


What was most disappointing about Linda Fairstein’s story?

The main character becomes unrecognizable. I know people change, but this is fiction and readers come back to it because they enjoy the characters. Alexandra is definitely not enjoyable in this installment.


Which scene was your favorite?

The ending because it was finally over.


Do you think Killer Look needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

The ending leads into a follow-up, but unless Alexandra returns to some semblance of independence and self-respect, the series can't be sustained.


Any additional comments?

Barbara Rosenblat was a pleasure as always. Glad she is still reading this series. It was the only saving grace.
