"Angel's Tip is a riveting read that snaps with the beat of New York....A knuckle-biting journey that'll keep you turning pages until the very end."
--Faye Kellerman, bestselling author of the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus novels

"Alafair Burke has created a winning heroine in Ellie Hatcher, someone to root for."
--Tami Hoag, bestselling author of Down the Darkest Road

"Complex plotting, multi-layered characters, a creepy serial killer--in Angel's Tip, Burke has once again proven herself a terrific storyteller."
--Sandra Brown, bestselling author of Lethal

Acclaimed thriller writer Alafair Burke delves into the underworld of the Manhattan nightclub scene in Angel's Tip. Burke is the daughter of crime fiction superstar James Lee Burke, creator of Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux, prompting the Fort Worth Star-Telegram to proclaim that "this fast-paced-but-human thriller proves that writing talent is genetic." A superb crime novel featuring NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher ("a strong female protagonist in the tradition of Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski and Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone" --Boston Globe), Angel's Tip follows Ellie's investigation into the murder of a young college student, quite possibly by a member of New York's young moneyed elite, and fans of Lisa Gardner, Karin Slaughter, Harlan Coben, and Sue Grafton will most definitely want to trail along.

I enjoyed the story but felt like there were too many theories! Since it was one of her early books I think she didn't know how to end the story. The killer wasn't very well developed.

Although this was not her best it does have some much needed answers to her previous books in the series. The cold case part wasn't wound as tightly as it should have been nor was the killer and his motives.

Too much was dependent on a previous book - which I have not read. In the end, you didn't really care about the killer's motives because they were so poorly developed.

The partner (JJ) was a far more interesting character than Ellie

Alafair Burke is an amazing new writer with taut suspense and interesting characters. Can't wait for more of her books!

All those dead ends and you know that she's just leading us astray. First half of the book is only powder in your face, kind of filler and getting nowhere. They wake up in the second half. But just because they have to get somewhere. This is all zig-zag action, not very well constructed, and leaving the reader with a sour taste of wasted time.
