Title: Lethal Legacy (Alexandra Cooper Novel): A Novel
Author: Linda Fairstein
Rating: ****
Tags: mystery, series, alexandra cooper, new york city, nypl

Linda Fairstein's Alexandra Cooper series is one of the best mystery series around. Fairstein writes what she knows, having been assistant DA in New York, like her character. Fairstein also seems to have undertaken to educate the world about the city of New York, as most books in the series are about major features of the city. In this volume, the focal point is the New York Public Library, and during the course of the book one finds out a lot about that institution.and about historical maps. A woman was killed and the clues point to a library connection.

Good book in an excellent series.
