Book Reviews
Blood Oath
By Linda Fairstein
Review by Gregg E. Brickman
Blood Oath is the twentieth novel in Linda Fairstein's series featuring Alexandra Cooper, the Sex Crimes Unit in New York County, and the familiar characters, Mike Chapman,and Mercer Wallace.
     Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper returns to her stressful position following a lengthy leave of absence. Though the people in her immediate circle believe she is up for the job, others treat her as if she is emotionally unstable and not ready to perform. Plus, the special election for the vacant District Attorney slot will occur six months hence, and speculation runs rampant about who will run and whether Cooper will join the fray.
     NYPD refers Lucy Jenner, a young woman who claims an important official sexually assaulted her when she testified in a federal trail at fourteen years of age. Lucy, now twenty-four, has led a troubled life and is prone to lying, but her testimony rings true. Cooper, along with Chapman and Wallace, follow the facts. The uncovering of deadly secrets forces Cooper to save Lucy and run for her life through the halls and tunnels within Manhattan's Rockefeller University.
     As she often does, Fairstein provides the reader with a glimpse of Manhattan not usually seen by the casual visitor. This time it is Manhattan's Rockefeller University, which is a research center focusing on biomedical and medical sciences. The descriptions bring the reader onto the secure campus.
     Linda Fairstein headed the Sex Crimes Unit in Manhattan for twenty-five years. She brings vast experience, realistic and intriguing plots, and believable characters to her novels. Blood Oath is no exception. It's a must read for old and new Fairstein fans.Dutton 1st printing, signed: $28.
 
Confessions of an Innocent Man
By David Dow
Reviewed by Sue Wilder
Houston chef and restaurant owner Rafael Zhettah is a bachelor leading a simple and complication free life. One evening he meets the beautiful Tieresse, a wealthy philanthropist several years his senior. The bond is immediate and they combine their lives. A short while later, life turns upside down when Tieresse is murdered in their home.
     Rafael is falsely accused of the murder, a result of a system that assumes the crime is committed by somebody close to the murder victim. Especially when the suspect is younger than his partner and has an alibi that questions his devotion to Tieresse.
     The first part of the story follows Rafael through the system as he is arrested, denied bail, goes to trial, is convicted, and ultimately winds up on death row. At each step, Rafael assumes that he will be released when the evidence shows that he is innocent. Finally, he is declared innocent just hours before his scheduled execution.
     Rafael has to resume life. He has spent over six years in prison. It is impossible to just go back to his old life. Instead, he crafts an elaborate plan of revenge against a justice system that did not work.
Confessions of an Innocent Man is a riveting story of revenge. Mr. Dow methodically relates the story, letting the reader's sense of fairness and revenge provide the suspense. As a founder of the Texas Innocent Network, Mr. Dow has represented more than 100 death row inmates. His work and knowledge of the system show on every page of this book.
     Excellent writing, authentic place, and interesting characters combine to make Confessions of an Innocent Man a terrific read. It is impossible to put down. Highly recommended.

Unto Us a Son Is Given
By Donna Leon
Reviewed by Stephanie Saxon Levine
Donna Leon's latest Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery is here, and it is a pleasure to read. Set as they almost always are in Venice, this thoughtful and thought-provoking series offers readers so much more than a mystery. Leon immerses us in the culture of Venice as seen through the eyes of Leon's meditative protagonist. As he is drawn into a case, we follow along through his workdays and into his home life, garnering clues as he does. We are treated to his thoughts, both about the case and about the culture that has spawned it. This is never more true than in Unto Us a Son Is Given.
     The tale begins with Brunetti's father-in-law, Count Falier, asking him to investigate, and hopefully to intervene in, the plan of the Count's best friend, Gonzalo, to adopt a much younger man as his son.
The Count is concerned that his friend might be taken advantage of, because the young man would become Gonzalo's heir. Brunetti meets with Gonzalo. A few days later, Gonzalo falls dead on the street. This unexpected death is followed by the arrival of a friend for a memorial service. The night she arrives, she is murdered in her hotel room.
     As Commissario Guido Brunetti works to solve the murder, he untangles the hidden secret in Gonzalo's life. As he struggles, he reflects on Venetian society, human values in general, and the perils of gossip, as he works and at home with his wife and teenage children.
     Donna Leon's deft artistry takes the reader to Venice, where she, through her character,  shows us a world in many ways different from our own. The books in this wonderful series have always given this reader much to think about, as well as a tour of Venice and a meaningful mystery to solve. Read it! Atlantic Monthly Press, 1st printing: $26.
