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.

    This Alex Cooper novel is told from the perspective of Detective Mike Chapman for most of the story. It was really enjoyable and different from the other books I’ve read in this series. As in all of the Alex Cooper books, there is plenty of historical and geographical information that really gives a lot of depth to the background of the book. I really love Barbara Rosenblatt’s reading. She is the virtuoso of voices and really gives the sense of hearing actual conversations between people.

    I'm sorry to say that this was my least favorite of the entire Alexander Cooper series which I have always adored. The storyline was very simple - just one main plot going on instead of the usual interesting way that Fairstein weaves smaller cases and interpersonal relationships among the primary plot. Her other novels are stay-up-all-night to listen/read and feel quite satisfied the next morning, but I had no problem pausing this one and getting to bed at a decent hour. How sad. While it was interesting to hear Mike's point of view for a change, I wish he had only narrated some of the chapters with Coop's point of view being primary in others. I actually missed Alexander. It was like reading a spin-off novel about the co-stars of the series while Coop was away. I don't know if it was just me, or if anyone else felt this way... But I was quite disappointed.. And now I want the "real" story to come out, the entree, the main course... This was just an appetizer, and a stingy one at that.
