Love the characters and their interaction. Have read several of Linda Fairstein's books and plan to read all of them. The historical info re NYC woven into the plots is fascinating. Highly recommend this and all of the Alex Cooper series.
Love all the Alexandra Cooper books...this one did not disappoint! On my way to completing the series. I am hesitant to start the next book because, once I start I can't put it down. The relationships continue to develop and never get stale.
You just can't beat Linda Fairstein's novels. I have read them all and each one leaves you wanting another RIGHT THEN !! Just don't expect a calming bedtime story....this will get ya going!!
Linda Fairstein knows what it's like in the real world of New York crimes and punishments. Her Alexandra Cooper is smart, beautiful, rich, and is a working woman serving the city in the Crimes Unit as prosecutor.
The writing is a crisp, the action is non-stop and is one of the most satisfying of the series. It is bad blood indeed in this story of a man on trial for the murder of his wife, grabs the gun from a clerk and kills people in the courtroom and escapes.
The story of his family and others from his childhood play a major part of this plot - the famililies were generations of sandhogs - people who go down miles beneath the city fixing water problems and making upgrades to keep NYC in clean water. The grownd tunnels and the old subway routes undergroud, play a great role in this book. I was fascinated in the history of how these mazes of tunnels evolved, and the people who worked hard to create it.
Of course Mercer and Chapman and Alex figured everything out and it was an interesting bit of 'whodunit'.
Fans of the Cooper Mysteries will be happy.
My mom loves these books and I am getting her the whole set. Once she is done, I will read them. Can't wait!!
Arrived on time and in excellent condition. Have not read the book yet, but have read many other "Alexandra Cooper" books by Linda Fairstein and have enjoyed them very much.
This is a three-year-old mystery novel in Fairstein's Alexandra Cooper series, but it's a new series to me. I don't know how I missed these novels except that like the old saying, "So many books, so little time." Cooper is a D.A. in New York City and this book involves treachery among the sandhogs who are digging Tunnel #3 to carry water throughout the city. The old tunnels are ancient and in danger of leaking. Think of New York City with no water at all and you can see why this is important.

Sandhogs of course are the guys who dig the tunnels all over the world. One reason for the name dates from the building of the Brooklyn Bridge when caissons had to be sunk deep under the river and the major danger was being pulled down into the sand to their death. Not many people are willing to do such work for obvious reasons but intrepid Irish sandhogs are a brotherhood who continue that job through generations.

Cooper's case involves a member of one of those families. At one point she descends into the shaft to Tunnel #3 after an explosion, scared to death but persevering even though someone tries to kill her. A cold case turns out to be a part of the story as well. As Cooper was in serious danger through most of the story, I was on tenterhooks reading the book. (What are tenterhooks anyway?)

I enjoyed Bad Blood enough that I will look for more of the Cooper series. I like the courtroom drama and the involved plot with characters who are quite believable and fallibly human. I recommend this book.
A typical good thriller novel by Ms. Feinstein and a chance to learn about New York City's underground tunnels and the people who work there.
