Have you read Death Angel by Linda Fairstein yet? It’s the 15th in the Alexandra Cooper series and is another excellent adventure in New York City. This time, the murder takes place in Central Park so as the reader uncovers the mystery, they are also discovering the history of this famous landmark. Fairstein also brings the legendary Dakota apartment building into the story and makes that history part of her story as well.
If you have yet to discover this gripping series, the best description of the stories is that it’s like a combination of Law & Order and CSI: New York in book form. If you haven’t gotten yourself on the wait list, ask Readers Advisory to get you on it today.

Readers Advisory wrote a post earlier this week listing desert detectives. If you’re ready to find a oasis from the heat, join us via armchair in Las Vegas to enjoy comedic mysteries with Deborah Coonts and her Lucky O’Toole series. These sassy stories are reminiscent of Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series, with a mad dash of Las Vegas characters, a big splash of romance (which guy will get Lucky?); and a whole lot of mystery solving set at the Babylon Casino, one of the most opulent casino hotels on the Vegas Strip.
