"New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well-known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage's death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion. With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy, and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime--and the possible homicide--beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana Voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well-hidden, even from those closest to him--just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk."--

This book did not have the fast pace, nail biting excitement of most of her other works. A lot of time was spent on the personal minutiae of Alex Cooper life/loves and her PTSD from being kidnapped in the previous novel.
If a person is into haute couture and the mechanics of putting on a runway extravaganza, they will enjoy all the 'insider information' Ms. Fairstein put into this work. The explosive ending, is a BIG carrot, to entice the reader into buying/reading her next book - Deadfall.

I liked the book until I got to the last page, which left a big question. I don't want to have to go to the next book to find out "whodunit."

Another amazing story that I read in 7 hours nearly non-stop.

I like Linda Fairstein's book Killer Look, it was interesting to see a difference in character of Alex, after her kidnapping. She comes back strong in the end. Good book!

Definitely not the best in this series. Occurs very soon after Alex's kidnapping in the previous book. She's on leave to recover from PTSD but manages to involve herself in Mike's latest case courtesy of her fashion knowledge. Good twist at the end which resolves a problem and sets up a new direction for the series. Hope Alex gets some decent treatment for her PTSD and doesn't keep relying on the bottle or cases or clashes with work colleagues to distract herself from it.

I forced myself to finish reading Killer Look. This was definitely a miss. If her next one is this bad, I might give up on reading her again.

Very disappointing;Alex character not very likeable....self absorbed,even selfish in her demands and needs,,,,,this behavior is past off as a result of PTSD.She needs therapy and medication but instead acts like Lucy to Chapman's Ricky.Last page had a good twist which will of course birth the next story.
