Killer Heat by Linda Fairstein

Another great entry into the Alex Cooper series.  And another fascinating bit of New York history. In her 10th outing Alexandra Cooper is trying a 30 year old rape case, and also trying to solve murders committed by what may be a serial killer. Oh, and she’s trying to make time for romance.

This did not disappoint, and Fairstein has kept this series fresh. All the familiar elements are there, the Jeopardy Final Question bet between Alex and Chapman,  the police details, the interesting NYC history that becomes a plot point, and a legal sub-plot that explores an issue.

The last 50 pages are a gripping race against time and I stayed up too late racing to finish the book. Very satisfying.
