This critically acclaimed, explosive thriller is a book only prosecutor Linda Fairstein could write.

Now that world comes vividly to life in a brilliant debut novel of shocking realism, powerful insight, and searing suspense. Alexandra Cooper, Manhattan's top sex crimes prosecutor, awakens one morning to shoking 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 targeted by a stalker or -- mistaken for Alex -- was she in the wrong place at the wrong time' In an investigation that twists from the back alleys of lower Manhattan to the chic salons of the Upper East Side. Alex knows she's in final jeopardy ... and time is running out. She has to get into the killer's head before the killer gets to her.

The print on this paperback copy is so exceptionally small that I am not going to finish reading it. Yes, I am getting older, but I still see fine. The book was published in 1996. Newer books seem to have bigger print.

Too much unnecessary description and explanation interrupted any flow this book may have attempted to have. Mediocre at best. Could have been a bad rerun of "Law & Order: SVU"

Mystery thriller about a prosecutor working closely with the special crimes unit - a unit investigating among other things, sexual assualt - investigating a brutal murder of one her friends: an actress. The case eventually leads to the implication of her boyfriend and her breakup with him. The novel was easy to read but a little bit choppy, using thoughts in paragraphs among actual conversations to convey feelings. It was also a little too pendantic at the end trying to explain the deductions involved leading colleagues of her to the suspect. A very average book and somewhat disappointing.

I thought this book was unoriginal and poorly written. The rave reviews from other authors on the back cover of the book made me wonder if they had read the same one I did
