New Reviews for 212

“Burke’s new outing featuring this young female detective quickly proves to be better than anything Burke has put out before.  Actually, her realistic dialogue, her detailed descriptions of New York City’s vivacious vibe and pulse, and her ability to provide unending suspense makes this one of the year’s best across the board.  This is simply how a police procedural should be done … Full of dirty secrets and the repercussions that result when trying to hide them, this comes highly recommended as a nonstop tale of suspense that races without pause to its satisfying ending.” – New Mystery Reader

“There is more than one murder in ‘212’ and Burke heightens the suspense- and poignance- by making the victims as three dimensional as the other characters.” – Connecticut Post

“Alafair Burke has been writing thrillers for many years, but she has outdone herself with the heart-pounding 212…Set aside a few hours, and prepare for your neck hairs to stand on end.” – Bookreporter

“Do yourself a favor and read 212. You will not be disappointed.” – Mysteries Galore
