With her newest Alexandra Cooper novel, Terminal City, New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein delivers another breakneck thriller that captures the essence of New York City - its glamour, its possibilities, and its endless capacity for darkness.
Linda Fairstein is well-known for illuminating the dark histories in many of New York's forgotten corners - and sometimes in the city's most popular landmarks. In Terminal City, Fairstein turns her attention to one of New York's most iconic structures - Grand Central Terminal.
Grand Central Terminal is the very center of the city. It's also the sixth-most-visited tourist attraction in the world. From the world's largest Tiffany clock decorating the 42nd Street entrance to its use of electric trains since the early 1900s, Grand Central has been a symbol of beauty and innovation in New York City for more than 100 years.
But "the world's loveliest station" is hiding more than just an underground train system, and in Terminal City Alex Cooper and Mike Chapman must contend with Grand Central's dark secrets as well as their own changing relationship.

It was as if Linda Fairstein gave her formula to a ghostwriter who just didn't get the tone right. Although I generally love her books, and in particular love the details that they generally include regarding the particular area of the New York that she's talking about, in this case,it was way too much about trains. Moreover, the interaction between Alex and Mike was just not believable. Also, and all the other books Alex has been a strong, determined female lead. In this book, she was somewhat simpering and whimpering.
Barbara Rosenblatt is one of my favorite readers and she was very good with this book as well
The amount of description regarding the trains, the under ground tunnels and the people who live and then became really tiresome. And as a result, it cut from the time that could have been spent on the relationship between the characters in the book.
