‘VAULT’ TO THE TOP
Last year ended badly for Linda Fairstein, prosecutor. The convictions she helped secure as the former chief of the New York district attorney’s sex- crimes unit against five men accused of raping the Central Park jogger were overturned. But this year begins more promisingly for Linda Fairstein, best-selling crime writer. The Bone Vault, the latest book in her Assistant DA Alex Cooper series, is the week’s only new debut on the fiction list. It digs in at No. 9.
