Title: Final Jeopardy
Author: Linda Fairstein
Actress Isabella Lascar is brutally murdered while driving to Assistant D. A. Alexandra Cooper’s beach house. Was Isabella the intended victim, or was Alexandra? Alex, bodyguard in tow, cooperates with the F.B.I. while trying to keep the publicity away from her high profile job as Chief of the Sex Crimes Prosecution Unit.
In this bestselling debut novel of “riveting authenticity” (Vanity Fair), Linda Fairstein brings to life a gritty, fascinating world as only an insider can. Patricia Cornwell knows the morgue; John Grisham knows the courtroom; but no one knows the inner workings of the D.A.’s office like Linda Fairstein, renowned for two decades as head of Manhattan’s Sex Crimes Unit. Now her expertise, insight, and sharp wit entwine in a page-turning thriller.
Alexandra Cooper, Manhattan’s top sex-crimes prosecutor, awakens one morning to shocking news: a tabloid headline announcing her own brutal murder. But the actual victim was Isabella Lascar, the Hollywood film star who sought refuge at Alex’s Martha’s Vineyard retreat. Was Isabella slain by a stalker—or was Alex herself the intended target? In an investigation that twists from lower Manhattan to the chic Upper East Side, Alex has to get into the killer’s head before the killer gets to her.
