Linda Fairstein served 25 years as the bureau chief of the Sex Crimes Prosecution Unit of the New York County District Attorney's Office before stepping down in 2002 to continue writing bestselling crime novels. In 1993, her non-fiction book – SEXUAL VIOLENCE: OUR WAR AGAINST RAPE – was published to critical acclaim. In 1996, Fairstein realized her life-long dream upon the publication of her first crime novel, FINAL JEOPARDY. That debut in the Alexandra Cooper series of crime novels was followed by LIKELY TO DIE, COLD HIT, THE DEADHOUSE, THE BONE VAULT, THE KILLS, ENTOMBED, DEATH DANCE and BAD BLOOD (2007) – all international bestsellers, translated into more than a dozen languages. The latest book in the series – KILLER HEAT – will be published in 2008. A graduate of Vassar College and the University of Virginia School of Law (1972), Fairstein is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and a member of the International Society of Barristers. In 1998, several of her law school classmates established a public service scholarship in her name. She lives in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard.
