The real-life work of sex-crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein brought "riveting authenticity" (Vanity Fair) to her bestselling debut novel, Final Jeopardy. Now Fairstein's fictional counterpart -- smart and savvy assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper -- returns in "[a] Grisham-esque page turner" (Time) that puts Alex in the line of fire. New York City's oldest and largest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her blood-soaked office, where she has been sexually assaulted, stabbed, and designated by the cops as a "likely to die." By the time Alex has plunged into the case, it's a high-profile, media-infested murder investigation with a growing list of suspects from among those who roam the hospital's labyrinthine halls. As Alex's passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers this hospital is not a place of healing but of deadly peril -- and that she is the next target for lethal violence. A high-style thriller that sweeps from Manhattan to London to Martha's Vineyard, Likely to Die is an exhilarating tale from a justice system insider and provocative novelist.

4.0 Likely to Die (Alexandra Cooper Series #2)
I enjoyed the book. I like Alex and her work. I think Mike and Mercer are great as well. I hope Alex ditch Drew though. Don't like him very much. The plot was great and I loved the gory stuff, although there was not a lot of it. Looking forward to reading the next book.

3.0 Likely to Die (Alexandra Cooper Mysteries)
New York City is the site for this fast pace hardcore crime novel. This has been happening a lot I enjoying the secondary characters more than the main characters. The crime and chase situation was thrilling but I disliked Cooper with a passion for being so perfect. I only finished the book because ...
