Blood Oath
Blood Oath | Linda Fairstein
7 posts | 5 read | 2 to read
New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein returns with a timely, captivating thriller about the deep--and often deadly--reverberations of past sins. Linda Fairstein is the queen of intelligent suspense, cleverly interweaving shocking crimes with the hidden, often dark history of New York City locales. In her latest novel, Linda tackles both the first biomedical research center in the United States and the #MeToo movement, as Alex Cooper takes on the case of a young woman who testified years earlier at a landmark Federal trial . . . and now reveals that she was sexually assaulted by a prominent law enforcement official during that time. As the case grows more complex, Alex, along with NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, find themselves in uncharted territory within Manhattan's Rockefeller University, a research institute born of tragedy that has evolved into a premier scientific facility, hospital, and cornerstone of higher learning. But when dark secrets of the century-old institution intersect with life-threatening events, the experience may just help determine whether Alex will keep her job, or throw her hat in the ring to become the next district attorney of New York County . . . if she can survive that long.

I‘m glad her publisher has dropped her. There are consequences to such actions. https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/central-park-five-linda-fairstein-prosecutor-dr....

melissajayne I don‘t generally cheer when this happens but honestly they shouldn‘t have signed her in the first place. 2w

This is part of the Alexandra Cooper series. A young woman surfaces with a damning story about a well-known lawyer. She claims he sexually abused her as a child during a major case. She has to help prove this and avoid being killed. Danger ensues as Alex tries to assist her. Highly recommend.

What felt a bit like a return to form on this, Cooper‘s 20th outing. Less@personal nonsense and a good solid case or two rooted firmly in #metoo territory. I respect Fairsteins‘s background in working with victims of violent crime and sexual assault and I think she always covers the crimes with compassion vs titilation. This lived up to that!

MicheleinPhilly There are 20 books in this series?? 😮 3mo
Itchyfeetreader Yup they have a slightly weird chronology now but if you skip past that then all good! @MicheleinPhilly (edited) 3mo
