Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper is deeply involved in a complicated, high-profile homicide case against defendant Brendan Quillian, a prominent young businessman charged with the brutal strangulation of his beautiful young wife. His conviction is not a certainty: Quillian was conveniently out of town on the day of the killing, and his defense attorney seems to be one step ahead of Cooper's effort to prove Quillian paid a hit man to commit the crime.
Halfway through the trial, a major catastrophe alters the course of Cooper's case. A cataclysmic explosion rips through New York City's Water Tunnel #3, a spectacular feat of modern engineering that will be completed years in the future. Was the blast caused by terrorism? Political retribution? Or was it merely an accident? Cooper is quickly drawn into the tragedy when she discovers a strange connection linking Brendan Quillian to the tunnel workers killed in the explosion.
Told with Linda Fairstein's trademark blend of brilliant detective work, cutting-edge forensics, and electrifying courtroom drama, Bad Blood is packed with the twists and turns that never fail to thrill her legions of devoted fans.

"Fairstein really knows what she's writing about." (James Patterson)
Yes. Great story and plot.
Mike Chapman. He always speaks his mind. He likes Jeopardy.
This listen was a great part of the series. Definitely better than Death Dance.
I do like this series! really good characters.
This time we start in the court room with a man Alexander want to prove killed his wife.
During the story, I learned about the law and spousal abuse, the history of what lies below the city, how the city gets water...so much more...and it will end under the city!
Over the road truck driver and an avid fan of audiobooks.
If you want to listen to Barbara Rosenblat suck cough drops and swallow her saliva and gasp for breath during every pause; by all means feel free to waste a credit on this book.
It was so annoying that I stopped listening after 10 minutes.
While I love Linda Fairstein, and ordered her entire "Alex Cooper" series, the reader makes it impossible to listen to them.
Sorry to have wasted my $$$ and credits.
