Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein returns with a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that takes Alexandra Cooper into the dark underside of New York City’s most storied restaurants and a murder case spanning continents.
In her 13 best sellers, Linda Fairstein has taken millions of fans inside sinister worlds that most of us can’t even imagine. Thanks to her extensive experience as a New York City prosecutor, she creates situations that are stunning for both their compulsive readability and their authenticity. Taking Alexandra Cooper into the fascinating world of New York City’s most beloved and storied restaurants, Night Watch continues her tradition of breathtaking suspense storytelling.
Forty-eight hours after Alexandra Cooper arrives in France to visit her boyfriend, the famed restaurateur Luc Rouget, her vacation in paradise is cut short when a young woman from the village is found murdered. The only evidence discovered on the body is one of Luc’s matchboxes promoting his new restaurant in New York. But before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York to handle a high profile case.
Mohammed Gil-Darsin, the distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic Bureau, has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel. As the world watches in fascination to see how the scandal will unfold, Alex finds her attention torn between preparing the alleged victim to testify and a murder case with ties too close to home. A second body is found with Luc’s matchbox - this time in Brooklyn - and Alex begins to fear that the two cases may not be as unrelated as she thought, and that uncovering the sordid secrets of the city’s most wealthy and powerful could cost her and her loved ones everything they hold dear.

Well worth a credit!

In fact I have nominated Night Watch for my Book Club, and I feel sure it will generate a great deal of discussion, both around the book and the broader issues of abuse.

I found the book to be quite gripping, awfully credible and was engrossed right through to the end. Excellent narration helped. The unfolding of the story provided an insight into controlling and abusive behaviours and to the almost inevitable effects, both short and long-term on the victim and others in her orbit.

There are good lessons for us all in being more observant of others' health and well-being and providing support where it is (rather obviously, in this case) needed.

An excellent listen.

A great mystery with humor and bits of history

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

I love the series. The 3 main characters reveal an interesting and realistic working relationship. I thought the beginning was a little slow, but after Alexandria left for the US, it really picked up pace.


What did you like best about this story?

I am not a history buff, but presented the way it is in this book makes it so interesting.


What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

Barbara Rosenblat is great!


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