In Central Park, Assistant DA Alex Cooper and Detective Mike Chapman race to track down a serial killer. Is the body found in the Ramble the first victim of a deranged psychopath, or could other missing women be connected? The sanctuary in the middle of the city for thousands of New Yorkers and tourists who fill it every day, may very well become a hunting ground at night for a killer.

"One of my favourite writers... her stories never fail to thrill." (Karen Slaughter)
"Fairstein has the expertise and the experience and it shows." (Kathy Reichs)
Well, I quite like the chemistry between Mike, Coop and Mercer, but this tale seemed a bit tedious. I was a little distracted by Barbara Rosenblat's voices, and her pauses that weren't always in the right places. she had Mike sounding rather like Jimmy Durante - and I found this really off putting.
Certainly not one of Linda Fairstein's best, some parts were a trifle odd - as in - 'I cannot believe that this was the result of that action'.
Live in Basingstoke but commute a couple of hours each day to Central London, so the audible books are perfect for the journey.
Barbara Rosenblat is probably why I chose the book, from her narration of Lisa Scottoline and Amelia Peabodys books. She simply is fabulous. She can do the characters so well, it like listening to a Play with different actors. The story was excellent as well and the marriage of the story to the author is what made this an excellent book.
