Crime novels can’t get any more real than those written by Linda Fairstein. Using the very definition of ‘writing what you know’, Linda was once a top New York city prosecutor, just like her heroine, Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper.
Watch the video below to see Linda introduce Alex and also talk about the inspiration for her thrilling new novel, Hell Gate, available in paperback from November 25th.
New York City politics have always been filled with intrigue and shady deals. Assistant DA Alex Cooper and her NYPD colleagues find themselves investigating a shipwreck involving human cargo – illegally trafficked immigrants – at the same time a sex scandal threatens the career of a promising young congressman.
When Alex discovers that a young woman who died in the wreck and the congressman's murdered lover have the same tattoo – the brand of the mastermind behind the trafficking operation – she realizes that the city's entire political landscape hangs in the balance.
Hell Gate is available in paperback from Sphere on 25th November.
