Thirty Three - Legal Legacy - Linda Fairstein

This book takes place in New York City (as do all of her books) specifically within the New York Public Library (NYPL). An archivist working at the NYPL is found dead inside a freezer with a conservation room after potentially being raped by someone 3 days earlier. A housekeeper to one of the big library donors is found dead in the archivist apartment.

Alexandra, Mike & Mercer team up to investigate the two deaths and potential rape, but instead they find themselves pulled into library politics and a disfunctional donor family. As they continue to piece the evidence together all avenues point to the brother of a book thief.

Fairstein, Linda. Legal Legacy. Doubleday (2009). 384 pages. ISBN 0385523998.
Full of great library references and explores the great structure of the NYPL. Quick read - along with a great story!
