New York Times bestselling author and famed former Manhattan prosecutor Linda Fairstein delivers a chilling Alexandra Cooper thriller, in which Alex matches wits with the master of detective fiction himself—Edgar Allan Poe. Workers demolishing a nineteenth-century brownstone where Poe once lived discover a human skeleton standing—entombed—behind a brick wall. When assistant district attorney and sex crimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper hears about the case, it strikes her as a classic scene from Poe’s fiction, except that forensic evidence shows this young woman died within the last twenty-five years. Meanwhile, Alex is furious when she hears that an old nemesis may be preying on women once again. The silk stocking rapist first struck four years ago, leaving a string of victims in his wake, then abruptly disappeared before Alex and the NYPD could identify him. Now with improved forensic technology and a national DNA databank to draw from, a fresh attack may give Alex a new lease on many old crimes, just in time to beat the statute of limitations. Masterful and exhilarating, this heady thriller combines dramatic New York City lore and the macabre world of Edgar Allan Poe with the authentic legal and forensic detail that only Linda Fairstein can offer. Entombed is electrifying crime writing at its very best.
