Reviews about Lethal Legacy C (7):
Timberahue
Enjoyed this mystery, especially the main setting of the New York public library. Learned a little about rare books and the Fred of people who have it all and always want more.
Vinainl
Love this series especially the background on New York City landmarks.
Lesesshe
An enlightened tour of the ancient maps and books collection in the NYC library, all wrapped into a murder mystery. An engaging read.
Gardall
Very easy read.
Tolrajas
As always, I can't put Feinstein books down. I be come so involved in the story. Can't wait for the next one. So great to read a good. Book and learn something new at the same time.

Fairstein always does impeccable research and one could read her novels just for the historical and informational content. Then there is the major factor of someone writing about a profession she has actually practiced. I worked in courts for two decades and I laugh at her many inside remarks. I particularly enjoyed this book because the only shrine I will ever worship in would be a library and the holy of holies for me is and always has been the New York Public Library. When I lived in New York I'm sure I wore a groove in the steps of the main entrance. I thought I knew something of the history of that magnificent edifice but I was sorely mistaken, it is far grander more complex and more fascinating than I had imagined. This book couples fascinating history with an intriguing multi-layered plot. Get ready for a fun and educational read.

I was traveling to New York City so this mystery was perfect for me. It gave me a desire to explore the NYC Library but, unfortunately the bad weather made extra trips difficult so I will have to do that some other time. Lots of interesting information on
the library is woven into this book recommended to me by a man so it appeals to both sexes.
I like Linda Fairstein books!!!!
