Explanation of the Book:

New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein delivers a heart-pounding thriller that explores the dark secrets of Manhattan's iconic fashion scene in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel. New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well-known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage’s death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion. With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy, and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime—and the possible homicide—beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana Voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well-hidden, even from those closest to him—just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk. With Killer Look, Linda Fairstein proves once again why she is the “Queen of Intelligent Suspense.”* *Lee Child Linda Fairstein was chief of the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney’s office in Manhattan for more than two decades and is America’s foremost legal expert on sexual assault and domestic violence. Her Alexandra Cooper novels are international bestsellers and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She lives in Manhattan and on Martha’s Vineyard.

Explanation of the Book:

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday comes a dead homecoming queen, a school-wide scandal, and a Twittercidal maniac on the loose... When Hartley Grace Featherstone, newest reporter on the school newspaper, is assigned to cover the biggest cheating scandal to rock Herbert Hoover High, she's a little nervous about letting her editor down. And not just because he's super hot. Hartley is determined to get to the bottom of exactly how Sydney Sanders, frontrunner for Homecoming Queen, obtained stolen answers to their English Lit midterm. Luckily, Sydney agrees to meet with Hartley. Unluckily, when Hartley arrives at Sydney's home, Sydney is dead—drowned in her own swimming pool while in the act of tweeting! Now it's up to Hartley to find out who wanted Sydney silenced. Was it a jealous homecoming rival, a bitter boyfriend, the ex-best friend she got suspended? Or did the stolen test answers lead to Sydney's Twittercide? Between dodging Mom and her new online dating habits, tailing shady suspects, and a little midnight breaking and entering, Hartley better watch her back... before the killer strikes again! Note: This book was formerly published under the title Social Suicide Hartley Grace Featherstone Mysteries: Deadly Cool – book #1 Killer Looks – book #2 Wicked Games – book #3 "Irreverently funny voice... wicked pace... explosive conclusion!" ~ Booklist "Halliday balances the comedy and suspense notes well, keeping her characters intriguing and her narrative bright. Suspenseful fun." ~ Kirkus Reviews "This fun and outrageous mystery is a perfect mix of humor and horror that will have readers laughing while they try to figure out 'whodunit.'" ~ School Library Journal "I absolutely adore this series and these characters... it's smart, funny and full of heart." ~ The Book Life Rating: This book does not contain any scenes with graphic gore, violence, or sexual content. Its rating would be similar to a PG13 movie or Hallmark Channel mystery. Themes encountered by real teens are explored (including teen sex vs. abstinence), while keeping the overall rating and content appropriate for younger- and pre-teens. Consequences are shown for behaviors, and negative actions are not glorified.
