Lola Dakota had to call in the police several times to restrain her abusive husband, but he always returned, so when they got wind of his plan to hire a hitman to kill her she agrees to play her part in the sting which would see both men arrested. It proves to be a great success, but several hours later and when her husband is under lock and key, Lola is truly dead -and by someone's hand. The police team on the original sting are in disarray, so Alex Cooper and Mike Chapman are swiftly in place to take over. Looking beyond her husband into her professional life, they discover a university department riddled with jealousies, extra-marital affairs, swindled funds and the unexplained disappearance of a student known to be a drug user. The one thing which seems to link all the players with all the misdemeanours is the university's research site on an island off Manhattan where they were investigating the remains of the Victorian isolation hospitals and lunatic asylums and the morgue - the deadhouse. But why Lola's murder is connected to the place is not so easy to prove, nor the identity of her killer.

Following the critically acclaimed and top ten Best Seller The Deadhouse, Linda Fairstein now takes us behind the scenes of some of New York's magnificent and mysterious institutions in her most electrifying Alexandra Cooper thriller yet. The Bone Vault begins in the glorious Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where wealthy donors have gathered to hear plans for a controversial new exhibit. An uneasy mix of scholarship and showbiz. The exhibition has raised fierce opposition from some of the museum's elite: IMAX time trips and Rembrandt refrigerator magnets have no place for them at the Met. Assistant DA Alex Cooper, off duty for the evening, observes the proceedings with bemused interest until the Met director suddenly pulls her aside: the body of a young researcher has been found in an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus. Teaming up with cops Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the silent sentinels comprising New York's museum society, investigating not only at the Met but also at the Museum of Natural History and the Cloisters, to find a killer. Atmospheric, chilling, and shot through with procedural authenticity.

Cold Hit On a steamy August evening, Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper is called to a crime scene. The body pulled from the water is that of a young woman with her hands and feet bound to a ladder. Her elegant clothes and manicured nails suggest affluent connections, but just how well-connected she is surprises even Alex. Soon she and her NYPD detective colleagues are hunting for a killer in a world where priceless art meets big money in a lethal mix... The Deadhouse University professor Lola Dakota's abusive husband is finally stopped when the police hear of his plans to hire a hitman and set a trap for him. It goes well, and he is soon safely behind bars. But less than a couple of hours later Lola is murdered. Alex Cooper is brought in to help, and finds herself in the strange world of academia at Columbia University. Amongst all the usual scandal is an unusual research site on an island near Manhattan - the remains of a Victorian penitentiary and morgue - the Deadhouse.
