Book Review: Hell Gate

Title Hell Gate
Author Linda Fairstein
Rating ****

Another good entry in Fairstein's Alex Cooper series. Alex is an assistant DA in charge of the sex crimes unit, the job author Fairstein used to have in real life. In this book, a boat bringing in illegals from Eastern Europe almost intercepted and in their panic a number of the illegals jumped ship and drowned. One of the female corpses, however, was stabbed to death. Another body is found in a well on the property of Gracie Mansion, the mayor's residence. Gracie is one of three Federal style mansions left in the city, and the plot involves all three them at some point. Is someone in the mayor's administration involved n the murder of the woman in the well? Are the two cases tied together?

Recommended reading.
