Linda Fairstein “Silent Mercy”
April 11th, 2011
After a 20-year career as head of the Manhattan DA’s sex crimes unit, Linda Fairstein has now been a bestselling mystery writer for nearly that long. And nothing makes her flinch, including the prospect of taking on organized religion, as she has New York ADA Alex Cooper do in “Silent Mercy.”
Within the span of a few days, a headless, burning corpse has shown up on the steps of a Harlem church that was once a synagogue, and an equally-dead body is found at a cathedral in Little Italy. Both victims, women who were outspoken about the role of women in religion. Alex and her police detective colleagues — including, yes, Mike Chapman — find that this is not the “hate crime” it initially looks like.
