I am a fan of James Patterson, and loved the TV show of the Women's Murder Club, and hence enjoy this series completely. I like the fast pace. The Authors do not get bogged down in a lot of unnecessary words. Novel twists and turns.
The 8th Confession grabs your attention from page one in a way that James Patterson has perfected. I had a very hard time putting it down and it didn't take me very long to finish. I don't think that this one was my favorite out of the series, but it was still a great read. To me, it seemed that there was less interaction among the Women's Murder Club themselves. Still a great addition to the series and I can't wait for the next one!
All was going well with this book until Patterson decided to take a sudden left turn that really had nothing to do with the storyline or progression of this book. Sometimes I just don't understand what this author is thinking.
A couple of murders in San Francisco has Lindsey Boxer on the run. What does the curious deaths of a glamorous couple and a homeless man have in common. None of the usual clues seem to add up, that is until a quite by chance discovery leads the investigators to a rather unique murder weapon. But to fully understand why these people were targeted leads to quite a few twists and turns.
The storyline is leading the reader down a very interesting and fast paced path, when out of the blue Patterson throw you a sharp left turn about Suki's new love interest. This part had nothing to do with the storyline and I'm still quite confused as to why it was suddenly thrown in there. What was the point that Patterson was trying to make? I'm still confused over that.
This is one of those series that draws you in and from time to time and even though something will hit you wrong, you keep plowing through. Each character has their own story, each book reveals a little more. I like how Patterson is starting to reveal a little bit more about each character, each person is starting to show a little bit more of themselves and that is what keeps me reading the Women's Murder Club.
This Womaens Murder Club book was not as good as the others have been. The characters seem to be stuck in a rut. The two murders that the women were involved in were somewhat interesting but it took a while for me to get interested in them.
I loved it! I really love this series. I can't believe I have to wait until 2010 for a new book. If you are a fan of this series you will love this book. I love that there were multiple plots going at the same time. Very quick read.
