Hunting a killer within New York’s urban jungle becomes
the biggest case of Alexandra Cooper’s career in New York
Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein’s latest
A wild heart beats within New York City. Amid concrete and
skyscrapers, the Wildlife Conservation Society works to
preserve and protect the animal kingdom both within and
beyond the borders of the five boroughs. But dangerous
creatures don't always have claws and fangs, as Assistant DA
Alexandra Cooper and NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer
Wallace know all too well. Predators lurk close to home, and
in the aftermath of the shocking assassination of an iconic
public figure—someone Alex has worked with for years—the
trio must unravel the motive behind the shooting to discover
who is the bigger snake: the killer or the victim.
The murder investigation provides more questions than
answers, as a tangled mess of secrets slowly comes to light.
From street gangs to secret societies, from big-game hunting
to the illegal animal trade, from New York City zoos to the
highest offices in city government, Alex has her work cut
out for her—especially since the task force handling the
investigation, led by the US Attorney, seems to be more
against her than with her. As tensions rise between Alex and
the feds, she must determine just how far she is willing to
go to uncover the truth—and uphold the integrity of the
office she has so proudly served.
Deadfall proves once again why Linda Fairstein is
hailed as “a champion teller of detective tales” (USA
