    Alafair Burke is an incredibly talented writer One of her many strengths is the ability to use just the right detail the unmatched desks in a detective squad room, the contrast between a DA s cheap Bic pen and a defense lawyer s expensive one to make the reader feel that they re right there in the scene The plotting is tight and just twisty enough to keep the reader guessing without going so over the top as to elicit eye rolling And her characters are very well drawn For instance, I love h Alafair Burke is an incredibly talented writer One of her many strengths is the ability to use just the right detail the unmatched desks in a detective squad room, the contrast between a DA s cheap Bic pen and a defense lawyer s expensive one to make the reader feel that they re right there in the scene The plotting is tight and just twisty enough to keep the reader guessing without going so over the top as to elicit eye rolling And her characters are very well drawn For instance, I love how Burke portrays Ellie Hatcher, the protagonist of 212 She s certainly less than perfect, but without so much baggage that it weighs down the story This is police procedural done right Highly recommended

    I just discovered this author but I m really enjoying her books Taut, suspenseful writing I m not sure how she compares to her father because I ve never read his books but as an author she stands on her own.

    I picked up this book as a 99 cent Goodreads deal, and I hadn t read this author before.It was a good mystery with interesting twists and turns, and believable characters It kept my attention but was not unputdownable I would read another in the series.

    4.5 This is an energetic and intriguing read about a lady homicide detective working a murder case in New York City Ellie grew on me as a fully drawn character the further I got into the novel She s tenacious, shrewd, and the sort of a competent detective you d want investigating your loved one s murder if, may God forbid, that calamity should ever befall you A series I hope continues to develop for many subsequent titles.

    The long and short of it is that, it s good a mystery Somehow I read the 3rd book of the series and I m looking forward to read the first one I like the twist near the end and the dynamic between characters whether between Ellie Rogan, Ellie Jess or Ellie Max.I plucked out one star out of my rating just because it felt ages to finish it, maybe because of there s a lot of chapters even tho the chapters are not too long.

    This was the first book by Alafair Burke that I had read and I must say I loved it It was fast paced and I did find myself quickly turning the pages, trying to guess what was coming next, and guessing incorrectly and I really found the book hard to put down I read the book in less than two days and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in crime thriller novels I have now made it my mission to read the other books in the Ellie Hatcher series

    PROTAGONIST Ellie Hatcher, homicide detectiveSETTING New York SERIES 3 of 3RATING 3.75In the past few years, social networking has taken the Internet by storm Millions of people use Facebook manytweet on Twitter, view videos on YouTube, blog daily, list items for sale on craigslist and find future mates on relationship sites The social media do serve a good purpose in terms of providing many means of communicating Unfortunately, though, there is often a darker side to these sites PROTAGONIST Ellie Hatcher, homicide detectiveSETTING New York SERIES 3 of 3RATING 3.75In the past few years, social networking has taken the Internet by storm Millions of people use Facebook manytweet on Twitter, view videos on YouTube, blog daily, list items for sale on craigslist and find future mates on relationship sites The social media do serve a good purpose in terms of providing many means of communicating Unfortunately, though, there is often a darker side to these sites that can destroy people and even drive them to suicide We ve all read about people being viciously attacked online What sometimes happens is that the online menace flows over to a person s real life Such is the case for Megan Gunther, a student at New York University who is being threatened on a Web site specializing in campus gossip It is frightening for her to find that someone knows everything about her life and daily schedule.The police are unable to do anything to help Megan because the postings on the site are completely anonymous, making it impossible to determine who is behind the threats It is only when Megan is murdered that there can be a serious investigation The case is assigned to detective Ellie Hatcher and her partner, J J Rogan and they have a difficult time of it Finally, phone records reveal some connections that lead in a completely different direction, including a prostitution ring run on craigslist It takes several other deaths before they are able to uncover the truth At the same time, they are trying to solve the murder of a real estate agent, and Ellie spends a night in jail as she parries with a real estate mogul in court.The plot is quite complex, with many seemingly unrelated threads crossing and uncrossing each other all along the way This led to the major issue in the book for me, which was the fact that Ellie constantly came up with different theories to explain what was going on I found that as she laid each theory out in detail, I becameandconfused, since she jumped to a lot of conclusions All of the theorizing led to pacing issues, since we were taken out of the investigation and into a lot of mental work, much of it very speculative.On the other hand, I really enjoyed the characters in the book Burke excels at creating realistic dialogue, and the banter between Ellie and JJ felt completely natural It was also refreshing to see Ellie s relationship with her significant other, Assistant District Attorney Max Donovan, portrayed as positive and mature 212 is the third book in the Ellie Hatcher series This book in particular reflects the realities of life in today s world A large part of the appeal of 212 is that the reader vicariously shares the victims vulnerability We are all exposed to possible danger because of our online transactions And that possibility is scarier than any crime fiction work could ever be

    This novel starts with a lady Tanya calling from a PayPhone to report a shooting and then dashes to hotel room number 212 and this is where the story is centered around ,hence the use of 212 in the title Ellie and Rogan Partners in Law, arrive to Apt 212 to find a man dead , normally this would be an easy homicide to solve but the owner of the apartment happens to be rich guy Sam Sparks somebody who seems to be a high risk celebrity in a sense We then shoot over to the college campus of NYU This novel starts with a lady Tanya calling from a PayPhone to report a shooting and then dashes to hotel room number 212 and this is where the story is centered around ,hence the use of 212 in the title Ellie and Rogan Partners in Law, arrive to Apt 212 to find a man dead , normally this would be an easy homicide to solve but the owner of the apartment happens to be rich guy Sam Sparks somebody who seems to be a high risk celebrity in a sense We then shoot over to the college campus of NYU New York Uni where a student Megan Gunther is being stalked on a Gossip Girl type blog called CampusJuice , when she is found dead and her roomate stabbed suspicions arouse as ideas that the two crimes are connected starts to float around What has A college student and the dead person in Apt 212 have in common , As time passes another woman Katie is found dead and all the evidence starts to point in the direction of the mystery woman Tanya from the beginning of the book What I found interesting in this novel is how the author successfully connected all the characters in the novel perfectly together as she used the friends of friends circle An excellent mystery novel that keeps you guessing and wondering exactly what is the connection and why the women and man note the single plural were killed right to the last chapter I know that sounds cliched but this is the truth and nothing but the truth I swear and take an Oath quote from the book with 212

    I ve enjoyed a couple of Alafair s books before and this one is quite well done, too I d been out of touch with her work for the last few years and enjoyed this new series example, based in New York I began reading her work just to see if her father s incredible writing ability had been passed along While wisely not assaying anything remotely like James Lee Burke s body of work, she is doing quite well, thank you very much I ll continue to follow her career with interest.
