Devil’s Bridge


This latest mystery by Linda Fairstein centers on the kidnapping of her main protagonist, assistant DA Alex Cooper, and the efforts of her boyfriend, Detective Mike Chapman to locate her before it’s too late. The department thinks it’s an attempt at revenge by one of the felons that she has put behind bars, and the case moves accordingly. Fingers are also being pointed at  Antonio Estevez, whom Alex is prosecuting for sex trafficking, or Reverend Hal, an unscrupulous pastor known for inappropriate sexual advances toward underage parishioners and paying off politicians to look the other way. A cryptic text by Alex leads Chapman’s investigative efforts to several NY landmarks: Lady Liberty and the George Washington Bridge. Fairstein weaves some interesting facts about the two famous landmarks into her narrative, as Chapman’s hunt for Alex intensifies. It’s a great read for mystery lovers.
