2 big cases stress Lindsay as she deals with her first pregnancy and Joe's increased trips away. The "girls" are all into the serial killer mystery when unearthed remains are discovered on the back porch of a well-known Hollywood star's San Francisco mansion. Acquitted years ago of his missing wife's murder, the star now resides with his new fiancé on a yacht, but refuses to sell the historic mansion in case Cecily ever reappears and comes looking for him. A search of the rear gardens leads to more gruesome discoveries and the SFPD can only suspect Harry Chandler whom they still believe got away with murder when Cecily disappeared.
While Lindsay and Rich interview potential serials, their boss, Lt Brady, insists they stay on top of another front-page case---that of the vigilante shooter who's been killing drug dealers using 22 caliber guns stolen from the police evidence locker. Brady fears a member of the force is behind this crime spree and Boxer and Conklin have to consider if someone they've worked closely with could be responsible.
Though 2 good cases are presented to solve, the unrealistic set-up of Lindsay dealing with so multiple personal issues at the same time just doesn't ring true.
One of the better additions to the "Women's Murder Club". In addition to being assigned to two cases...one involving decapitated heads and their missing bodies, the other, the murders, execution style, of notorious drug dealers, Lindsey is pregnant. It is believed that the killer of the drug lords is a rogue cop. And her old friend and now boss, Jacobi is a prime suspect..
Out of Lindsey's husband's Joe's past, (or is it the present as well) comes an old lover, claiming that they are still an item ...... Unflattering and mainly untrue and distorted stories hit the newspaper......Hope the next in the series is as good as the "11th Hour"
