its glamour, its possibilities, and its endless capacity for darkness. Linda Fairstein is well-known for illuminating the dark histories in many of New York's forgotten corners --

Grand Central Terminal. Grand Central Terminal is the very center of the city. It's also the sixth most visited tourist attraction in the world. From the world's largest Tiffany clock decorating the Forty-Second Street entrance to using electric trains since the early 1900s, 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, and in Terminal City Alex Cooper and Mike Chapman must contend with Grand Central's dark secrets as well as their own changing relationship.

Abstract:

"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 DA Alex Cooper and Detectives Mike Chapman and 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 Grand Central terminal building, all attention shifts to the iconic transportation hub, where the potential for a bigger attack weighs heavily on everyone's minds"--Publisher's description.
