Great story, love the facts about New York. Gives me a sense of being in New York. Enjoy all the dialog.
Linda Fairstein is getting in a rut. This book could have been great. I love murder mysteries but "The Deadhouse" is too much like all of her other books to be very enjoyable. There is the woman cop that no one listens to even though her intuition is 99% accurate, the token male that supports her to a limited degree, the female victim, the male perpetrator, and a couple of twists. Though I have a number of criticisms of the book I want to highlight two as examples. I know that books don't/shouldn't mirror real life but seeing as just under 80% of murder victims in real life are males can't we have just one book that deviates from the formula of female victims? Why is it that the female detective, despite being right many times, never earns any trust/credit from her colleagues?
