Publisher's Summary

In her 17th Alexandra Cooper thriller, New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein takes listeners where they have never been before: inside the mind of NYPD Detective Mike Chapman.

The Manhattan waterfront is one of New York City's most magnificent vistas, boasting both the majestic Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge - the world's busiest span for motor vehicles. But in Devil's Bridge, Detective Mike Chapman will discover the peril that lurks along this seemingly benign expanse as he takes on his most personal case yet: the disappearance of Alex Cooper.

Coop's sudden disappearance is fraught with terrifying complications: scores of enemies she has made after a decade of putting criminals behind bars, a recent security breach with dangerous repercussions, and a new intimacy in her relationship with Mike. Now the police commissioner himself is wary of the methods Mike will use to get Coop back...if he even can.

Once again Linda Fairstein proves why she is "one of the best crime fiction writers in America today" with her most intense Alexandra Cooper novel yet.

    "Disappointing and painful"
    Would you try another book from Linda Fairstein and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    Definitely


    What was most disappointing about Linda Fairstein’s story?

    I have read or listened to the entire Alex Cooper series. I couldn't wait for this latest installment to become available and could not believe how difficult it was to listen to the end.


    Did Barbara Rosenblat do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Barbara Rosenblat is one of my all time favorite narrators. I did find that there were some lapses in Mike Chapman's delivery when Ms. Rosenblat's performance seemed to tire and to lapse into "Alex" mode.


    What character would you cut from Devil's Bridge?

    Tough one. Perhaps a little less Chapman...


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series and can only hope that the author doesn't go down the rabbit hole of having an intricate relationship between two of her main characters become so banal that it destroys the series.

    Story
    "Fairstein has gone too far"

    I have read a lot of fairstein's books always being able to ignore her politics and enjoy reading a story set in New York City. But Devils Bridge takes her right wing view of politics too far

    She does not even bother to disguise her animus toward the present mayor or his wife, distorts history of past criminal cases, and slanders one of the city's most influences and respected leaders

    Enough. Gods bye Coop

    "Fairstein Knocked It Out of the Park!!!"

    Devil's Bridge is one of her best novels that Linda Fairstein has written in this series. Even though my most beloved character Alex Cooper is not in most of the story we get a gripping good story that gives insight into another character Mike Chapman. As the plot twists and turns you follow him through a vast amount of emotions and contemplation. I love how she continues to weave in New York history into her book it was a book I just wanted to finish from beginning to end without a break.

    "NY History & Mystery"

    As always, well researched book interweaving NY history with mystery. Mike Chapman, recurring character was the main focus. Prefer prosecutor Alexandra Cooper as the lead. Dragged a little the last 2 hours. B. Rosenblatt an outstanding narrator. Makes the book. MJ

    "Who wrote this book?"

    Not having Alex Cooper's character interacting throughout this "story" left a huge gap which wasn't filled.

    Love Barbara Rosenblat's narration of this whole series but so sad to waste her talent on this book.

    "Best One Yet!"

    I listened to Barbara Rosenblat's inspired performance of this gripping story. Her narration is so smooth, that I can focus entirely on the plot and not on the narrator.

    Devil's Bridge is told chiefly in Mike Chapman's voice. This one really had me on the edge of my seat. As usual, I picked up some MYC trivia along the way!

    "Another great story"

    Linda Fairstein has done it again! Devil's Bridge is an excellent addition to the Alex Cooper series. Ms Fairstein has kept the series going with new ideas, keeps you guessing at who is behind all the evil. Barbara Rosenblat is Alex Cooper, no one could do a better job of bringing the characters to life. When I see she is the narrator on any of the books I listen to, I know I won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense/mystery books. I have enjoyed the entire series and think those mentioned above will as well.

    "great read"

    Linda Fairstein is one of a very few authors that I will read her books as soon as I can. So, Devil's Bridge was a second read. Fantastic writer.
