I'm reading a mystery, "Terminal City", by Linda Fairstein. The quote is from page 56  in the hardback.

"These are death fetishists, Your Honor," Drusin said. Apparently, he thought his argument would help his client's case. "It's just fantasy role play, and the tools-none of which are illegal to possess, I might add-just bring a little spice to the stories they tell each other."


  1. I've never read this author, but I know quite a few people who do. I hope you like it.

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

  2. Small world! Someone was telling me on the bus in to work tonight how much they thought I would like this book!

  3. I love this author, who I've met several times at BEA. I've only read a few books in the series, and hope to return to it at some point, Great cover shot of the main branch of NYPL.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great 4th!

  4. I've heard of Fairstein, but have never read one of her books. I would love for you to visit me at

  5. I have seen this author's books around, but haven't yet read her. This one sounds tempting. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  6. I haven't read this author either. I think I have an audiobook by her on my stack. I have a romance this week. Happy reading!

  7. I haven't read this author yet, but I've had her on my list for awhile. This looks good and I love the cover.

  8. A lot of twisting of words going on here, I already don't trust the speaker. Happy reading!

  9. I haven't heard of this author or of the book but the teaser definitely has me intrigued. I do wonder what situation the client got himself in to need an explanation of 'death-fetish' as a defense! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  10. I've been wanting to read this series and I like the sound of the teaser. This sounds like a court case and I have a feeling it's not as simple as the lawyer is trying to make it.

  11. Not heard of this one, but it sounds interesting. :)

  12. Another mystery for me to look into! Happy Friday!

    Here is mine:

  13. Death fetishlists??? That's intriguing in itself. :-)\Happy weekend!

  14. As a former New Yorker I have been tempted so many times to read through this series, which I know centers on different parts of the city for each title and should be fascinating. I only read the first book, and truthfully I didn't enjoy the MC. Then I read a couple of other random reviews that also didn't care for the MC. For me, liking (or actively disliking if the MC is the villian) is kind of important for me to move forward. Have you read more than this book by her? Was wondering if she became less self-centered as the series continued.

    1. I've read most of the books, and she's pretty self-centered still. She's smart and capable but definitely selfish at times and spoiled.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
