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.

Not the Alex that we've come to know & love
She has been in tougher scrapes than the kidnapping from the last book, but you would think it was the end all to her existence! She's had a psycho stalking her forever and trying to kill her, (well, just about everyone in every book does that), but NOW she decides to fall apart?? What gives??
Becoming an alcoholic, whining all the time, afraid of everything...where is the Alex that stood up for herself, cursed like Mike, didn't take s--- off anybody from the 1st book? From that book to this is a disgrace! I am about ready to give up on the whole thing. If it weren't for Barbara Rosenblat and her superb voice I would have years ago!
GET IT TOGETHER LINDA FAIRSTEIN!! I've read the other reviews and we're all going to rise up and revolt against you and Alex if you don't get Alex back into fighting shape with a backbone and a mouth to go with it!!

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.
