Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Murder at the Metropolitan Opera House pulls Alexandra Cooper behind the scenes at Lincoln Center -- and into the cutthroat conglomerate that controls the city's theaters. Joe Berk, the powerful head of The Berk Organization, was the lover of world-class ballerina Natalya Galinova; was he tied to her disappearance and untimely death after a performance at the Met? Shooting in the dark along with her colleagues Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex juggles a case on the cutting edge of forensic technology: she's about to nab a physician accused of drug-facilitated sexual assaults. But legal entanglements over DNA databanking may prevent Alex from stopping the predator. Cracking open a hidden history of the New York few others see, Alex must deliver a bravura performance -- or prepare to sing her swan song.

Review by Library Journal (2006-05-01)

Alexandra Cooper, New York City assistant district attorney, investigates rapes. Here she is confronted with the case of Natalya Galinova, a famous Russian ballerina, who first turns up missing during a performance at the Metropolitan Opera House. The situation quickly evolves to murder, and detectives Mercer Wallace and Mike Chapman once again join Alex in investigating the many suspects, including wealthy theater moguls, directors, and backstage crew. The insight into the pretrial process of prosecutors working with homicide detectives is quite interesting.

Unfortunately, minor characters are more like caricatures, with little detail provided and dialog that seems out of place. Barbara Rosenblat's clear reading does add to the dramatic tension as the thriller wends its way to its conclusion. As a quick bit of fun, this fast-paced story is average entertainment; recommended for larger collections.
