First to Die is the first book in his Women's Murder Club series.

I didn't even realize that this is going to be a tv series. But after reading this book, I can't wait to check out the tv show premiering Oct. 12th. This is much better than the made for tv movie, as often is the case with books. As soon as I was finished with it, after not being able to put it down and reading it in a day, I had to check if their were more. I am anxiously waiting the second novel. This was my first James Patterson book.

The beginning had me hooked. James Patterson did a great job developing the characters in this new series. They have a police officer, lawyer, coroner and reporter working together to solve a murder mystery. All are female and very likable and believable characters.

Lindsey Boxer is a homocide inspector for the San Francisco PD. A string of murders involving newlyweds springs up and Lindsey and three of her friends try to solve the murders on there own time. In addition to this Lindsey is fighting a potentially life threatening disease and is exploring the possibility of a loving relationship with her new partner. You will think you know who the killer is and then something comes up to make you focus your thoughts on somene else. Even when you think it is over, its not.

The plot is well thought out and explicit. The chapters are short and the story moves at a quick pace. If you enjoy a good mystery you will want to read this book.

Wow! I saw the TV movie when it came out, and hadn't planned on reading the book. However, I wanted to read all five of the Women's Murder Club series, so I decided to go ahead and read 1st To Die. It was wonderful! I read it in two days. Engrossing plot with lots of twists. Short chapters that keep you reading and reading, into the wee hours.

I liked the mystery of this novel, and the case was extremely interesting.. but the characters didn't feel "real" for me. The relationship between the women seemed forced... I might give the second book a chance to see if I can add a few more stars to the next one... A decent read if you like mystery novels.
