Review: Silent Mercy by Linda Fairstein

Little, Brown €16.99, Paperback

Published 02/04/2011 | 05:00

After a young woman's headless corpse is found burning on the steps of a Baptist church in Harlem and the mutilated body of a second female victim is found at a cathedral in Little Italy, it falls on New York Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper and her friend NYPD detective Mike Chapman to make the connection between the two.

Both were prominent protesters against the role of women in organised religion, which means Alex and Mike are in a race against time to stop a serial killer with an agenda against female dissenters.

This is the 13th Alex Cooper thriller and, once again, Linda Fairstein brings fascinating little-known historical detail about her beloved Big Apple to thoroughly modern murders.
