About the Book

Por fin en castellano el aclamado thriller de la mejor escritora del crimen de hoy: Alafair Burke. Inquietante y contundente. Te mantendrá en vilo. El guardaespaldas de un magnate es asesinado en el lujoso ático de su jefe en el exclusivo barrio de Manhattan. Mientras en la universidad de Nueva York, una estudiante de segundo año es amenazada en Internet, acechada. . . y finalmente asesinada. Los dos casos, igualmente sórdidos y terribles, terminan cayendo en manos de la detective de homicidios Ellie Hatcher y su compañero -quien pronto descubre que esto es sólo la punta del iceberg de un aterrador caso. En la ciudad que nunca duerme, la muerte tampoco lo hace.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“The plot of an Alafair Burke thriller doesn’t just rip from the headlines. She’s one step ahead of them. 212 scares you and keeps you turning the pages into the wee hours.” - Harlan Coben

“Burke’s prose is clear and fast, and every move by investigators and officers of the court is the real deal. She explores genuine contemporary questions in a revealing and thoughtful way.... Her plot is always dynamic and intelligent. 212 is engineered to wring double-whammy suspense out of credible peril.” - Katherine Dunn, Portland Oregonian

“Starts the suspense on the very first page and doesn’t stop until the last sentence. . . . Hatcher and Rogan are a dream team, their relationship the ideal of what every partnership should be. It’s a wonderfully fulfilling book.” - Romantic Times (Top Pick, 4 ½ stars)

“White-knuckle thriller. . . . Burke expertly weaves real-life headlines into her plot-particularly the Craig’s List Killer and the slew of recent political scandals-without ever sacrificing originality.” - Publishers Weekly

“The story is not merely ‘ripped from the headlines’; Burke starts with these themes and makes them her own…. Pleasingly complex, with multiple suspects and surprising twists. The characters are richly drawn, and Burke’s prose is as precise as the Glock pistol that Ellie carries…. A page-turner. - Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers

“A fast-paced thriller featuring an appealingly current angle, dynamic characters, and a spiderweb of possibilities she manages to leave tied up neatly. Strongly recommended for public libraries, especially where thrillers are popular.” - Library Journal

“Up-to-the-minute, action-packed crime fiction.” - Michele Leber, Booklist
