Summary
Another breakneck thriller that captures the essence of New York City --- glamour, possibilities, and endless capacity for darkness. / Linda Fairstein is well-known for illuminating the dark histories in many of New York's forgotten corners --- and sometimes in the city's most popular landmarks. In Terminal City, Fairstein turns her attention to one of New York's most iconic structures --- Grand Central Terminal. From the world's largest Tiffany clock decorating the 42nd Street entrance to its spectacular main concourse, Grand Central has been a symbol of beauty and innovation in New York City for more than one hundred years. But "the world's loveliest station" is hiding more than just an underground train system. When the body of a young woman is found in the tower suite of the Waldorf Astoria --- one of the most prestigious hotels in Manhattan --- Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper and Detective Mike Chapman and Detective Mercer Wallace find themselves hunting for an elusive killer whose only signature is carving a carefully drawn symbol into his victims' bodies, a symbol that bears a striking resemblance to train tracks. When a second body bearing the same bloody symbol is discovered in a deserted alleyway right next to the terminal building, all attention shifts to the iconic transportation hub, where the potential for a bigger attack weighs heavily on everyone's minds. With the President of the United States set to arrive for a meeting of the United Nations at the end of the week, Alex and Mike must contend with Grand Central's expansive underground tunnels and century-old dark secrets --- as well as their own changing relationship --- to find a killer who appears to be cutting a deadly path straight to the heart of the city. --- Container
