Box has light wear. Listened to only once. New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein returns with a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that takes Alexandra Cooper into the dark underside of New York Cityâ€™s most storied restaurants and a murder case spanning continents. In her thirteen bestsellers, Linda Fairstein has taken millions of fans inside sinister worlds that most of us canâ€™t even imagine. Thanks to her extensive experience as a New York City prosecutor, she creates situations that are stunning for both their compulsive readability and their authenticity. Taking Alexandra Cooper into the fascinating world of New York Cityâ€™s most beloved and storied restaurants, Night Watch continues her tradition of breathtaking suspense storytelling. Forty-eight hours after Alexandra Cooper arrives in France to visit her boyfriend and famed restaurateur, Luc Rouget, her vacation in paradise is cut short when a young woman from the village is found murdered. The only evidence discovered on the body is one of Lucâ€™s matchboxes promoting his new restaurant in New York. But before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York to handle a high profile case. Mohammed Gil-Darsin, the distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic Bureau, has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel. As the world watches in fascination to see how the scandal will unfold, Alex finds her attention torn between preparing the alleged victim to testify and a murder case with ties too close to home. A second body is found with Lucâ€™s matchboxâ€”this time in Brooklynâ€”and Alex begins to fear that the two cases may not be as unrelated as she thought, and that uncovering the sordid secrets of the cityâ€™s most wealthy and powerful could cost her and her loved ones everything they hold dear.
