Summary:

With her newest Alexandra Cooper novel, Terminal City, New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein delivers another breakneck thriller that captures the essence of New York City-its glamour, its possibilities, and its endless capacity for darkness.

Linda Fairstein is well-known for illuminating the dark histories in many of New York's forgotten corners-and sometimes in the city's most popular landmarks. In Terminal City, Fairstein turns her attention to one of New York's most iconic structures-Grand Central Terminal.

Grand Central Terminal is the very center of the city. It's also the sixth most visited tourist attraction in the world. From the world's largest Tiffany clock decorating the Forty-Second Street entrance to using electric trains since the early 1900s, Grand Central has been a symbol of beauty and innovation in New York City for more than one hundred years.

But "the world's loveliest station" is hiding more than just an underground train system, and in Terminal City Alex Cooper and Mike Chapman must contend with Grand Central's dark secrets as well as their own changing relationship.

    I really enjoyed Linda Fairstein's book, Terminal City. The story is well paced and incorporates so many interesting facts about Grand Central Terminal. It almost feels like I was looking at the terminal through the careful descriptions. As in other "Alex Cooper" books, there are moments in which Alex seems to have run out of luck. I really enjoy the carryover of the main characters from story to story and the evolving relationships. It makes the reader feel as though they know these characters. I really liked the narrator, Barbara Rosenblatt. She really creates the characters with her voice. Each character has his/her own special voice and expression. This adds to the enjoyment of the book and the sense of how the story is unfolding. The narration is fantastic!
