In Person: Murder by the Book
The title for this month is Blood Oath by Linda Fairstein.
Alex Cooper takes on the case of a young woman who testified years earlier at a landmark Federal trial who now reveals that she was sexually assaulted by a prominent law enforcement official during that time. As the case grows more complex, Alex, along with her NYPD detective comrades find themselves in Manhattan's century-old institution, Rockefeller University. When they experience life-threatening events, Alex is faced with keeping her job or becoming the next district attorney of New York County – if she can survive that long.
