New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the 17th in her Alexandra Cooper thriller series, DEVIL’S BRIDGE.
Linda shares her reason for using New York City landmarks as the basis for the Alexandra Cooper series.
DEVIL’S BRIDGE is the 17th book in the series and Linda changed things up considerably by writing much of the story from the perspective of Mike Chapman.
Linda was a sex-crimes prosecutor in New York City and describes the real-life political pressures Alexandra Cooper deals with while trying to do her job.
From the Publisher:
In her seventeenth Alexandra Cooper thriller, New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein takes readers 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, causing the Police Commissioner himself to be wary of the methods Mike will use to get Coop back… if he can.
