In Deadfall, a wild heart beats within New York City. Amid concrete and skyscrapers, the Wildlife Conservation Society works to 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 knows 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 — she must unravel the motive behind the shooting to discover who is the bigger snake: the killer or the victim. From street gangs to secret societies, from big-game hunting to the illegal animal trade, from NYC zoos to the highest offices in city government, Alex must determine just how far she is willing to go to uncover truth.
A review of Fairstein’s previous novel, Killer Look, from Suspense Magazine says “[Alexandra Cooper] just keeps getting better and better … Linda Fairstein never disappoints!” USA Today calls Linda Fairstein “a champion teller of detective tales.”
