Lethal Legacy by Linda Fairstein

I am a huge fan of Alex Cooper (the protagonist in these novels) and it’s always easy to pick up her latest adventure and not feel as if I need to go back and read the end of the last one to remember where Alex is. Anyway, how could I not love this book? It takes place in the New York Public Library and is essentially, a love letter to librarians.

When two women turn up dead in the same apartment, Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper and detectives, Mercer and Mike, end up at the New York Public Library looking for an old map to solve the crime. Tangled up in the case are an eccentric family and other bibliophiles with money.

The reader gets an inside look at the history of the New York Public Library and the librarians save the day!

Just a delightful read – quick pacing, suspense filled and a little bit of Alex’s personal life to keep her human.

This is my new favorite book of 2009 . Even though I consider them a series, you don’t have to read the Alex Cooper books in order. So please, pick this up! It’s worth your time.
