Following the critically acclaimed and top ten Best Seller The Deadhouse, Linda Fairstein now takes us behind the scenes of some of New York's magnificent and mysterious institutions in her most electrifying Alexandra Cooper thriller yet. The Bone Vault begins in the glorious Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where wealthy donors have gathered to hear plans for a controversial new exhibit. An uneasy mix of scholarship and showbiz. The exhibition has raised fierce opposition from some of the museum's elite: IMAX time trips and Rembrandt refrigerator magnets have no place for them at the Met. Assistant DA Alex Cooper, off duty for the evening, observes the proceedings with bemused interest until the Met director suddenly pulls her aside: the body of a young researcher has been found in an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus. Teaming up with cops Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the silent sentinels comprising New York's museum society, investigating not only at the Met but also at the Museum of Natural History and the Cloisters, to find a killer. Atmospheric, chilling, and shot through with procedural authenticity.

Linda Fairstein knows her New York City well, and what she does not know she bones up on before doing her novels. As a result we are treated to a good look at some aspects of the City scene as well as getting acquainted with an interesting set of characters whose job is crime fighting. One, Assistant District Attorney, Alexandra Cooper, is heroine of the books, while two detectives are teamed with her on the investigative side. In this particular case, a young woman who was the victim of an unsolved rape just outside the NYC Metropolitan Museum's Cloisters branch is found dead some months later. The link with the Metropolitan brings DA Cooper into touch, first with the Met and then with the Museum of National History, across Central Park, who are cooperating on a joint project. In the course of the investigation, we and Alexa learn about these two landmark American and World Institutions. The twists and turns of the plot forces her into the twists and turns of these two museums through which we accompany her picking up information as we go. In this book there is feint toward a multiple crime police procedural, but it is half-hearted, to my relief, since I prefer to focus on one thing at a time. A few featured characters are drawn with some degree of complexity but for the most part it is the DA and her two police buddies who get most of the attention.
All in all, I found that the novel maintained its interest, in characters, settings, and crime pursuit. As some reviewers did point out, the ending sort of pops up without much preparation. I wasn't bothered by this relative abruptness (which the ethics of mystery reviewing prevents me from speaking about). I would recommend the book to readers with some degree of interest in the NYC setting, with crimes against women, and, generally, with the mystery genre.
I hate writing reviews but if I have to explain why I gave this book five stars, here goes. The writing is excellent because Linda Fairstein knows her subject matter and her characters. Each of the Alex Cooper novels can stand alone but you'll understand more and enjoy them more by reading them in sequence. The characters grow from their experiences and the reader gets to watch. I think - possible spoiler ALERT here, that after a few more books, the romance that we all want to happen, will. But that's just my opinion. Excitement, information, and the ambiance of New York City....what else do you need??
This is my first Linda Fairstein book, and I must say, even though this is a mixed review, that I am impressed. She uses the occasion of the discovery of a freakishly preserved corpse discovered in a sarcophagus where only a mummy should have been to write a detailed and convincing police procedural about the world behind the exhibits in several of the world's most famous museums. As I discovered with 'The Relic,' I am a sucker for stories that play out in the almost gothic settings these museums and their secret places provide.
Alexandra Cooper, head of the Manhattan DA's Sex Crimes Unit, becomes involved in this case as the result of attending a museum event announcing a new joint exhibit to be created but the Metropolitan, the Cloisters, and the Museum of Natural History. When the body is discovered while in the process of shipment, she is asked to consult, and brings in the Manhattan Police Department when it becomes clear that this is a murder case. Thereby triggering a steady stream of museum political wrangles and infighting. Balancing this is her regular caseload of criminal investigations and prosecutions. This makes for a rich and satisfying story with plenty of mystery, complications, and personality.
I have to issues with the narrative, however. The first is that Fairstein writes almost an entire chapter using the events of 9/11 to build sympathy for both Alexandra Cooper and her colleague, Mike Chapman. Personally, I do not think this was necessary, certainly not to the extent that it was done. Moreover, at the end of it all, we really know very little more about either character. I think there are more effective ways to honor the lives lost on that day, and more effective ways to do character development.
On a more literary note, Fairstein puts considerable energy into creating suspense with a complicated and interwoven story line. Thus building into what should have been a climactic ending where the solution to the crime should have been an epiphany. Instead, the plot simply unravels, and the ending, while still a bit surprising, does not live up to its harbingers. You want the conclusion to be shattering, the material is there, but it simply does not happen.
Despite my complaints, this is an eminently readable story, and so far Fairstein hasn't fallen for the excessive angst that eventually ruined Patricia Cornwell's series. The detailing about the museums is wonderfully fine, worth the price of admission on its own. I intend to go back and read 'The Deadhouse,' her first novel, and will watch for new work from her as well.
What a find- a detective series by a writer who knows her stuff, who understands the elements of style and writes engaging prose. 17 so far and she writes a new one every year. I'll never run out of reliable entertaining reading!
Linda Fairstein does it again with "The Bone Vault"--a mixture of sex, violence and murder. Alex Cooper works with her team,Mike and Mercer, to find the individual who raped, murdered, and dumped a young woman in a sarcophagus and sent it to Jerseyor transport to Egypt!
Against the backdrop of the Temple of Dander at the Metropolitan Museum, The Cloisters, and the Museum of Natural History the larger question of "scientific study" and its appropriate boundaries are examined.
I read this one when it came out. WOW It's one of the reasons I still read Linda's books. This one was still building the trust between the characters and with the requisite NY history and a great mystery too. I'm building up my ebook Fairstein library and this one is a great brick in the wall.
This mystery flowed swiftly from beginning to end. I appreciated the first hand experience of 9-11, it made the reality of being a part of that day gripping. Also the joining of the two major museums as a backdrop for the actual investigation was educational and enjoyable. This is one of my favorites of The Alex cooper series.
With art and antiquities as a backdrop, the premier museum in the new world is the setting for this book. Alexandra Cooper and her friends Mike and Mercer solve a crime that reaches back centuries and involves how most of today's museums acquired a lot of their holdings.
