Cold Hit

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Linda Fairstein

Narrated By: Allison Janney

Date: September 1999

Duration: 4 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

Renowned sex-crimes prosecutor and bestselling author Linda Fairstein sends her acclaimed heroine -- the stylish and steely-nerved D.A. Alexandra Cooper -- on a hunt for a killer inside New York City's glitzy art world.
Alexandra Cooper has seen many murder victims, but few more disturbing than the silk-clad body of a woman, her hands and feet tied to a ladder, pulled from the turbulent waters at Manhattan's northern tip. With her colleagues, including NYPD detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex races against the clock and hopes for a 'cold hit' -- a DNA match that would reveal the identity of the murderer by linking the crime to someone already in the police database. But as the case pulls her into the exclusive world of East Side auction houses and cutting-edge Chelsea galleries, Alex discovers she may be marked as an expendable commodity in a chilling and deadly scheme....

    This is a fairly good mystery - I didn't guess who the killer was nor his motive. I also enjoyed the art information. However, I did not like the narrator. It was hard to differentiate between the characters, her male and female voices sounded exactly the same.

    OK, the good stuff: I like Alison Janney's narrating most of the time. I love the art stuff, both factual and the creatively made up. Good characters, well-drawn, nice interactions and dialogue. Bad stuff: Janney starts out reading this like she's in a speed talking contest -- and winning!. Too too fast. Lots of characters and not too much to differentiate the minor ones and the bad guys. The "cold hit" of the title seems like a reach for a title as it's only mentioned twice, doesn't seem like it's that integral to the story, and Fairstein really has to push to get the phrase in. Just pick another title... Not bad, but there are probably better books out there to listen to. If you're out of other choices, this one will do.

    I had never listened to a Linda Fairstein book before, so I probably missed some of the nuances from previous ones. This was an excellent mystery - kept me guessing, and I will definitely read more!
