Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein delivers a heart-pounding thriller that explores the dark secrets of Manhattan's iconic fashion scene in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel.

New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage's death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion.

With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime - and the possible homicide - beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well hidden, even from those closest to him - just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk.

Linda Fairstein was chief of the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney's office in Manhattan for more than two decades and is America's foremost legal expert on sexual assault and domestic violence. Her Alexandra Cooper novels are international best sellers and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She lives in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard.

What the Critics Say

"With Killer Look, Linda Fairstein proves once again why she is the 'Queen of Intelligent Suspense.'" (Lee Child)

"Barbara Rosenblat offers her usual high-quality performance in Linda Fairstein's eighteenth Alexandra Cooper novel. Since she's narrated every one of the audiobooks featuring the Manhattan prosecutor, Rosenblat knows the characters well, and her portrayals of 'Coop' and sidekicks Mike and Mercer are spot-on.... Each character's voice is distinct and immediately recognizable. Rosenblat is just plain amazing." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "When did Alexandra get to be so needy?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Alexandra Cooper's character has been strong and competent in past stories. In this one she devolves into a clingy, helpless, appendage to MIke Chapman. I understand that she experienced a trauma (I need to go back and find that story because I don't remember the details of her kidnapping), but this side of her is disappointing and tiresome. Can't we ever have a female protagonist who can take care of herself?


    What was most disappointing about Linda Fairstein’s story?

    The main character becomes unrecognizable. I know people change, but this is fiction and readers come back to it because they enjoy the characters. Alexandra is definitely not enjoyable in this installment.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending because it was finally over.


    Do you think Killer Look needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The ending leads into a follow-up, but unless Alexandra returns to some semblance of independence and self-respect, the series can't be sustained.


    Any additional comments?

    Barbara Rosenblat was a pleasure as always. Glad she is still reading this series. It was the only saving grace.

    Story
    "Not the Alex that we've come to know & love"

    She has been in tougher scrapes than the kidnapping from the last book, but you would think it was the end all to her existence! She's had a psycho stalking her forever and trying to kill her, (well, just about everyone in every book does that), but NOW she decides to fall apart?? What gives??

    Becoming an alcoholic, whining all the time, afraid of everything...where is the Alex that stood up for herself, cursed like Mike, didn't take s--- off anybody from the 1st book? From that book to this is a disgrace! I am about ready to give up on the whole thing. If it weren't for Barbara Rosenblat and her superb voice I would have years ago!

    GET IT TOGETHER LINDA FAIRSTEIN!! I've read the other reviews and we're all going to rise up and revolt against you and Alex if you don't get Alex back into fighting shape with a backbone and a mouth to go with it!!

    "Entertaining listen"
    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Alexandra goes in disguise to the exhibition - perfectly visualized.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The relationship between Chapman and Cooper seemed stilted at the beginning especially. Improved as book moved along.

    Story
    "Another winner!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killer Look to be better than the print version?

    Not necessarily. I listen to books and also read them. I like to do both.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. I liked learning more about the fashion industry and how it functions in the background (even though it is hardly to be admired). There were various twists and turns that kept the reader guessing about the murderer. And, of course, the ending leaves us waiting for the next book! And I didn't think Alex was whining, just that she was recovering from a horrific experience in the preceding book and was trying to "get back in the game," a job she liked and felt called to do.


    What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have always enjoyed Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator. I have listened to a lot of her books and have even chosen books based on her as the narrator. I never heard sighs, sucks, etc. that a previous reviewer talked about. She is one of my favorites as she is able to change her voice so that the reader can distinguish between the characters. It may not be perfect but it works for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the next book and hope it too is narrated by Barbara Rosenblat.

    "Not her best"

    Alex seems to have lost her backbone, too little Mercer, and next book too neatly set up.

    "Narration ruined listen"

    Could not listen to entire book. Further proof narrator can ruin listen. No further explanation needed.

    It is as if Linda Fairstein had someone ghost write the book. The characters don't ring true.

    "New narrator please"
    Would you listen to Killer Look again? Why?

    no, narrator ruined it


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The setting, I enjoy learning more about NY. The character interaction was not as compelling in this book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In my mind, Alexandra Cooper's voice does not sound like she has smoked a pack a day for the last 20 years. I know it's not easy for a female to portray a male character's voice but Mike's voice was dreadful.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. Think I'll go back to reading, not listening, to the next one.

    "Annoying"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No


    Would you recommend Killer Look to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    What three words best describe Barbara Rosenblat’s performance?

    Over the top


    Was Killer Look worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have liked the previous books in this series,but listening to Alex whine and drink too much would have been tedious enough but to have her sneaking around like a bad "I Love Lucy" episode and making decisions based on unexplained feelings became boring and unlikely. I couldn't finish listening to it.

    "A story about Mike and Alex"

    Love the continuing story about Mike and Alex. The endgame was lacking in plausibility even for fiction. And alas we are left with a cliffhanger.
