Rate this:
Contraband cargo-young and female-from a wrecked Ukraine freighter washes up on Rockaway Beach. But one victim died before she even hit the dark waters of the Atlantic. Only one other story has the power to grab New York ADA Alexandra Cooper's attention-that of a New York congressman's dive into disgrace following a sordid sex scandal.

When Alexandra discovers that the freighter victim and the congressman's lover are connected in a way that simply can't be coincidence, it strikes her that these cases aren't as unrelated as they seem. She unearths a secret that will not only shatter the entire political landscape of New York, but expose Alexandra to the darkest, most dangerous, and most profoundly disturbing revelation of her career.

This is the first one of her books I've read. Perhaps not one of her best?

Unless you want to read about the history of New York City and Gracie mansion, I'd give it a pass. gave up after 250 pgs (with an other 180 to go).

As usual, Linda Fairstein has written an intricate, absorbing mystery that keeps you guessing to the last minute. It's always nice to visit familiar characters, and they're all there.
