Summary
"Brendan Quillian, a successful young businessman, is on trial for murdering his wife, and the courtroom is tense. Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper's case against him hangs by a thread thanks to scant evidence and Brendan's all-star legal team. As the trial progresses, an explosion destroys a water tunnel being constructed deep beneath the city. Then, secrets from Brendan's past link him to the fatal disaster. Alex rushes to the scene to scour the wreckage for anything that could help prove that this man has a history of violent, perhaps homicidal behavior and bring justice to a murdered young woman." - Container

Review
  • Barbara Rosenblat has a field day with this entertaining thriller, the ninth installment of Fairstein's series featuring Alexandra Cooper, New York prosecutor. Mike Chapman (Cooper's beloved colleague) is particularly funny; Rosenblat plays him like a good-hearted thug from "The Sopranos." Cooper is prosecuting businessman Brendan Quillian for murdering his socialite wife when an underground explosion unexpectedly links Quillian to a very rough family of "sandhogs" and a very old murder. Fairstein lards in plenty of New York City lore, plenty of action, and a boffo underground finale in the decommissioned City Hall subway stop. Rosenblat does tough Irish, black street cop, girl prosecutor in jeopardy, and flibberty gibbet Nantucket bride with enthusiastic finesse. Great fun. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
  • New York City assistant district attorney Alexandra Cooper is prosecuting wealthy Brendan Quillian for the murder of his wife. Her case is weak, but then Brendan escapes the courtroom. Joining her in the investigation are her NYPD detective companions Mike Chapman and Wallace Mercer. An explosion in a water tunnel that is under construction and the murder of a young woman 20 years earlier leave Alexandra knee-deep in another mystery (and under water), while listeners are treated to bits of information about water tunnels, tunnel workers, and abandoned subway lines. Along the way Mike continues to snipe at Alex, a level of teasing that seems to go beyond sincere friendship to something else. Barbara Rosenblat's reading is clear and helps bring the characters to life. Although the story line is more concerned with legal procedure and tunnel trivia than with the mystery itself, this fast-paced tale has enough plot twists to make it interesting. Recommended.—Denise A. Garofalo, Astor Home for Children, Rhinebeck, NY --Denise A. Garofalo (Reviewed April 15, 2007) (Library Journal, vol 132, issue 7, p129)
