New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein returns with a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that takes Alexandra Cooper into the dark underside of New York City's most storied restaurants and a murder case spanning continents.


In her thirteen bestsellers, Linda Fairstein has taken millions of fans inside sinister worlds that most of us can't even imagine. Thanks to her extensive experience as a New York City prosecutor, she creates situations that are stunning for both their compulsive readability and their authenticity. Taking Alexandra Cooper into the fascinating world of New York City's most beloved and storied restaurants, Night Watch continues her tradition of breathtaking suspense storytelling. 


Forty-eight hours after Alexandra Cooper arrives in France to visit her boyfriend and famed restaurateur, Luc Rouget, her vacation in paradise is cut short when a young woman from the village is found murdered. The only evidence discovered on the body is one of Luc's matchboxes promoting his new restaurant in New York. But before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York to handle a high profile case.


Mohammed Gil-Darsin, the distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic Bureau, has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel.  As the world watches in fascination to see how the scandal will unfold, Alex finds her attention torn between preparing the alleged victim to testify and a murder case with ties too close to home. A second body is found with Luc's matchbox--this time in Brooklyn--and Alex begins to fear that the two cases may not be as unrelated as she thought, and that uncovering the sordid secrets of the city's most wealthy and powerful could cost her and her loved ones everything they hold dear.

I find the new website to be very difficult to use and very frustrating. All I want to do is renew my books. That should be easy.

Good story that takes place in France and US.. It is readable and interesting!

Terribly disappointing book by a writer who was once good. The last few titles in this series have gotten progressively worse and finally reached a nadir with this poor effort. She no longer cares about her craft or her readers and is relying strictly on formulaic writing. No creativity at all. A complete waste of time.

Another great read. I love the history you learn from reading her books. An "A" read

It's okay; not a real page turner.

I love Linda Fairstein's books, but I really wish she would smooth out the clunky dialogue she has her characters use when they're dealing with historical facts and descriptions of their work. It's jarring in an otherwise gripping plot.
