She had arranged through the secretary of the soon-to-be-retired president to stay in one of the guest suites for the weekend plained of in her apartment. Are you sure we aren’t putting you into the reach of someone here who could be dangerous?. I asked as we entered the lobby and passed into the center courtyard. I’ll be very safe, Faith said. The small quad looked like most other campuses at eleven . A few students were throwing Frisbees around while others tossed a football.

I've read all of the books in this series, and have been a fan from the begining. I love how the setting becomes another character in all of her books. I really appreciate all the research she puts into her work, and the backstage tour she gives us of New York. This book was no exception on the research and the back history.

I gave it 3 stars because I'm finding it hard to care about the main characters as much as I used to. I pre-ordered this when it first came out, and it's been sitting on my shelf for the last couple of months because I started feeling this disappointment when I read the previous book, and didn't want to feel that way about this one., About midway through I just started skimming to get to the end. There have been about a dozen books in this series, and the characters have worked together for over 10 years, but they haven't changed at all. About the only difference I see, is that Chapman's good-natured ribbing is taking on a much snarkier edge.

It would be nice to see more about the characters personally, and it would be nice to see them relating to others more. We know that Mercer's married with a son; we got a brief glimpse of them in the last book, but that was it. It's obvious that Cooper is married to her job, but I need to see she's not all about work. I thought after a dozen books, we might have seen her in situations where she would have to struggle to balance work and personal, like most women have to. She's never put anything before work, nor does it look like she ever will, and that's boring to me.

And don't hold Luc up as an argument for her having a social life. All of her boyfriends have been like him, long distance, fly in, fly out, meet here, meet there, blah, blah, blah. Those aren't real relationships. A real relationship is a guy she's seeing that has to kick Mercer and Mike out of the apartment because they've had her for 12 hours that day, and he wants to be a part of her life too. A real relationship is someone she has to actually share herself with, and I don't see that happening.

The characters are nicely drawn, and they don't detract from the stories, so I'll read the next book and know I'll be glad I did, but I've lowered my expectations on character growth.

Don't really care when or why a New York bridge was built. Have no interest in trendy night clubs that were once hospitals. What I wanted was a satisfying mystery. This wasn't it. Fairstein needs to spend more time on her story line and less time educating us about New York history. The characters are also becoming more unlikable. I'm disgusted with Alex Cooper. She spends her time thrill riding with her cop pals day after day and never showing up to do her job. If I was a New York tax payer, I would be upset. And Mike's verbal sniping has become down right malicious.

This book did not hold my interest. Put it down and picked it up a dozen times hoping something interesting would finally happen. A dull read from start to finish. If you decide to read it, get a used book or borrow one from a library.

Starting this book, I felt the atmosphere changing between Mike and Alex. I enjoyed the mystery as always but this time I found myself hoping Luc would stay in France and Alex would wake up and smell the roses. Good mystery, ending is leaving me hanging.

I have been reading the Alex Cooper series and just finished up book 13, Silent Mercy. It had an interesting story and was an enjoyable read. If you're reading the series, don't miss this one.

Fairstein's mysteries always center on some interesting aspect of New York City. This novel treats the history and practice of its many religious communities. A fascinating read, like who knows that Harlem was once the third largest Jewish Community in the World.

I'm working my way through this series and aside from a superb mystery story, every book gives you a lesson in the history of New York City and its surroundings. You learn and you don't realize you've picked up knowledge. Aside from a terrific story.....I've never guessed whodunit!

Love all of her books so far, can't put them down. I have read 9 of 19 so far.
I have read all of the books in the Alex Cooper series and have found some to be much better than others. This one is somewhere in the middle. I always enjoy the fascinating historical facts Ms. Fairstein weaves into her plots and this book was no exception. In this book we learn about the history of various church buildings in and around Manhattan as well as about the discrimination practiced by church hierarchy (primarily but not exclusively Roman Catholic) against those women who desire to become part of the professional church community. The murder victims had either been outcast from their religious communities and/or had offended certain fanatical religious "sensibilities." However, while the plot flowed nicely for a good portion of the book, it lost me with an ending that not only was too neat, but somewhat preposterous. Mostly, however, I came away with the feeling that so many threads of the story were left dangling (I'd like to mention them here because they REALLY bugged me, but I don't want to give away any more of the story). All in all, not Fairstein's best but an ok read for a rainy Saturday afternoon.
