The Deadhouseby Linda Fairstein
Synopses & Reviews
Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper is back — in this page-turning New York Times bestseller from legendary Manhattan sex-crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein.

And while the school does damage control for anxious parents, Cooper and her close detective friend Mike Chapman scramble for answers, fueled by the most daunting discovery: a piece of paper, found on the lifeless body of Professor Lola Dakota, that reads The Deadhouse....
