In New York, the body of a congressman's mistress is found dumped in the mayor's well. Assistant DA Alex Cooper is distraught that she wasn't able to prevent the death in time. Investigating the circumstances she uncovers a secret affair and an illegitimate child, supposedly fathered by the politician. Then after news of a tragic shipwreck off the coast claiming the lives of the human cargo on board, Alex is called to the gruesome scene. She discovers a strange connection between the seemingly unrelated cases: a young woman drowned in the wreck and the congressman's murdered lover share the same tattoo. Alex finds more than she bargained for: dark links to New York's powerful elite that will call into question all she ever believed in...

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).
Best word to describe: slow

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.
