    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A wild heart beats within New York City. Amid concrete and skyscrapers, the Wildlife Conservation Society works to preserve and 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 and NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace know all too well. Predators lurk close to home, and in the aftermath of the shocking drive-by murder of an important city employee--someone Alex has worked with for years--the trio must discover who the bigger snake is: the killer or the victim."-- Provided by publisher.

Manhattan Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper is no stranger to death, but never before has she held it in her arms as she does when DA Paul Battaglia, once her idol, falls on top of her after being shot on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Still on leave after escaping kidnappers weeks earlier, Alex is traumatized again as she finds herself a person of extreme interest. Why did Battaglia, with whom she'd fallen out of favor of late, send her three increasingly urgent messages about needing to see her that night? Could she have been "deadfall," the prey to set him up for assassination? With her lover, NYPD homicide detective Mike Chapman, Alexandra tries to find answers, facing increasing danger as she learns about the lucrative smuggling of animal parts. Known for her knowledge of New York City, Fairstein here explores the Bronx Zoological Park (don't call it a zoo!) and makes a strong case for protecting endangered animals. Fans will welcome this nineteenth Cooper outing with Alex getting back on her feet and facing a tantalizing prospect for the future.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Fairstein is one of those brand-name mystery authors whose works long ago crossed over from genre favorites to mainstream best-sellers and who shows no signs of losing that status any time soon.

The dramatic opening of bestseller Fairstein's 19th novel featuring Manhattan prosecutor Alexandra "Coop" Cooper (after 2016's Killer Look) is sure to jolt series fans: Coop is in the autopsy room of the city morgue, cradling the body of her longtime boss and friend, D.A. Paul Battaglia. Earlier that evening, Coop, who's been on leave in the aftermath of her traumatic kidnapping, was leaving a charity function at the Metropolitan Museum of Art when Battaglia approached her. But before he could speak, he was shot twice in the head by a drive-by shooter and died in Alex's arms. To her further horror, the homicide investigators regard her as more than an innocent bystander and discount her claim that she had no idea what the victim wanted to talk to her about. Coop is less than forthcoming about a previous time she saw Battaglia, and launches her own investigation, assisted by her lover, NYPD Det. Mike Chapman. Unfortunately, the plot takes some implausible detours en route to the over-the-top climax at the Bronx Zoo. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM. (July)
