Devil's Bridge Book Summary

In her seventeenth Alexandra Cooper thriller, New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein takes readers where they have never been before: Inside the mind of NYPD Detective Mike Chapman.

The Manhattan waterfront is one of New York City’s most magnificent vistas, boasting both the majestic Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge, the world’s busiest span for motor vehicles.  But in Devil’s Bridge, Detective Mike Chapman will discover the peril that lurks along this seemingly benign expanse as he takes on his most personal case yet:  the disappearance of Alex Cooper.

Coop’s sudden disappearance is fraught with terrifying complications:  scores of enemies she has made after a decade of putting criminals behind bars; a recent security breach with dangerous repercussions; and a new intimacy in her relationship with Mike, causing the Police Commissioner himself to be wary of the methods Mike will use to get Coop back... if he can.

Once again, Linda Fairstein proves why she is “one of the best crime fiction writers in America today”* with her most intense Alexandra Cooper novel yet.
*Nelson DeMille

Devil's Bridge - Linda Fairstein Book Reviews

  • Devil's Bridge (PushpushStable)

    As expected, fans will find another well-written and exactingly researched book by this renown author. The only draw back to beginning one of Linda Fairstein's books, is to block off enough time to read from cover to cover as quickly as possible. Get up early, start caffeine-dosing and enjoy.
  • Linda Fairstein's Devil's Bridge (Carol M Smith)

    Hang on tight! This book takes off on a fast start. Resulting in having this reader tuned in from page one. Alexandra Cooper, the Deputy District Attorney of New York prosecutes sex crimes. She works in conjunction with DetectiveMike Chapman and Detective Mercer Wallace. The three of them are investigating a murder. Then Alex disappears!!!! Is she taking downtime or has something sinister happened to her?? After allowing her time in case she has taken downtime, the search for Alex begins. The book totters between the present and past. This makes the mystery explainable as the reader learns the truth about all the characters involved. The book is full of tension which was thick and well-sustained throughout the story. The characters were colorful, well developed and realistic. There is plenty of mystery, suspense, drama, intrigue and includes historical facts about the various New York City landmarks. The plot is utterly unpredictable with many twists and turns. The story is told through Detective Mike Chapman allowing the reader to get a better understanding of Alex and himself. This is the seventeenth book in the Alexandra Cooper series. It can be read as a stand alone. Thank you to First To Read for this eBook. My opinion is my own.
  • Absolutely Loved This One (Cpitcock)

    This was a wonderful addition to the Alexandra Cooper Series, maybe my favorite installment to date. It was harrowing, and I worried terribly about Alex, as well as her new relationship with Mike. I felt so badly for him and what he was going through at times during this book, not to mention poor Alex! The book kept me captivated and I absolutely couldn't quit reading. I'm already so ready for more! Mike Chapman is stunned by the disappearance of Alex Cooper. Even though her friends tell him they believe she may have left purposefully, he is afraid something horrible has happened to her and he works diligently to find her and bring her back. Alex disappearing and having no one realize until the next day was rough! After that, when her friends tried to convince Mike that she probably went off on her own, I was so sad that they weren't more concerned for her. I was very glad that Mike took her absence more seriously and worked so hard to find her. It was odd to have Alex so silent in this one, but I really enjoyed having so much from Mike's perspective. I enjoyed the suspense and really like the direction the relationship between Mike and Alex is going. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing an ARC in return for an honest review.
  • Devils bridge (Leanne Angela)

    Read a little...skipped to the end. A complete waste of money. I usually love her books, not this one.
  • Devil's Bridge (Debikay45)

    This book was awful. I've been reading this author for many, many years and her books are getting worse and worse. Too much about history and not enough about the individuals in the novel. Her early books were so much better. Definitely would not recommend and I won't be buying anymore of this author's books. Just terrible.
  • Great read, loved the references to current events! (isalaur)

    Really enjoyed the book and the first person perspective of Chapman. He's always been my favorite character. Got to say Alex really annoyed me and I wanted to slap Vickee. What a crappy person she is here. Best of all I loved the swats at some infamous incidents that a NYC area person can totally appreciate, especially one who lived in Wappingers Falls and taught at Monticello High School during the Tawana Brawley fiasco. I didn't give it five stars...would give it 4.5... because there is still no real meat to the Alex-Mike relationship and it's beginning to feel like stalling and the ending is far too abrupt. Am really looking forward to the next one, though reading this on it's release day means a long wait for me. I REALLY want to see how the issue that starts the boom with Battaglia plays out.
  • No need for caffeine when reading Fairstein!!! (Bed deb 2012)

    A book that is missing Alexandra Cooper through most of it? Seeing things through Michael Chapman's eyes. That's a first. Although I do want to say that I wanted to slap the crap out of him a couple of times. I also found myself missing the old Coop. I think this was good just to get a different aspect, but I think once is enough. We need to get back to Battaglia and Shipley. I can't wait for that showdown!!! Of course the suspense just leading up to it with a few hints here and there does lead to great book sales. Ha!!! If you haven't read Linda Fairstein, then you are missing out on some good reading. I like how she always puts a little history and trivia into each of her books. Makes me feel a little bit smarter while being taken on these joyrides that are always guaranteed to get you going. No need for caffeine when your reading Fairstein!!! A huge thanks to Penguin/Dutton and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly recommend this and any other of Linda Fairstein's books.
