Eventually Alex connects their internal family rivalries to a priceless edition of Alice in Wonderland, which also contains the world's oldest map. Would one of the well-bred Hunts be willing to kill for the treasures? The search for the answer takes Alex and her team on a breathtaking chase from Manhattan's grandest apartments to the secret tunnels and chambers of the New York Public Library, and finally to a 19th-century underground vault. There, in the pitch-black darkness, Alex comes face-to-face with the killer who values money more than life.
Featuring a cast of elite, erudite, and downright eccentric characters, and a complex trail of clues that will have you guessing until the final pages, Lethal Legacy is Linda Fairstein's most beguiling thriller yet.
"Fairstein makes the legal issues more exciting than any high-speed chase." ( New York Times)

Love the history of New York
I love the characters in Linda's books. The stories always wrap up too quickly and with too many details of the mystery in the last few pages. Fairstein's books are full of wonderful and interesting trivia. Barbara Rosenblat's narration is, as always, first rate.

I am not sure how anyone can find Barbara Rosenblat's narration to be a problem -- I always enjoy her, even through the short moments of over-enthusiasm. She has the characters, the accents, the voices and unless the audio set up favours too much the high end and it's coming through earphones rather than speakers, I cannot see how anyone would be bothered by extraneous noise.
Linda Fairstein delivers a great story, lots of learning about New York, antique books and maps, and fabulous characters, as usual.
