This was another adventure with The Women's Murder Club. A brilliantly diabolical killer is murdering people from every walk of life. The deaths seem unrelated but police homicied inspector Lindsay boxer senses a connection and, together with medical examiner Claire, assistant .A. Jill, and Chronicle reporter Cindy, finds a link that sends a chill through the entire nation. This killer's motives are unspeakable.
James Patterson and Andrew Gross did a decent job of telling the story of the women through the woman's point of view.

I enjoyed this book as much as the previous five. The story moves along quickly with surprising twists. I don't always enjoy being in the head of killer while reading books but it works well here. I look forward to reading the next books.

I really enjoy this series, the methods of investigation by Sister Mary Helen, getting the other nuns to help. She puts alot of thought and prayer into her deductions. Always willing to help the police even if they wish she would stay out of their investigation.

Another good read about the antics of Jane Jeffry and her sidekick Shelley Nowack.
Jane and Shelley attend a nearby mystery writers' convention to mingle with agents, publishing bigwigs, and famous authors...and maybe todrum up interest in her own recently completed manuscript.

Patricia Cornwell is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed this book as much as I have enjoyed the rest of her books. I like the detail of the crimes and the process to solve the crimes. I like the characters, and like the way some of the characters resurface in later books. I have found that questions I may have at the end of one book are often answered in later books.

4th book in the Kinsey Milhone series. This series is almost as comical as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum.
In this book, the client hires Kinsey to deliver $25,000 to a fifteen-year-old kid. A little odd, and a little too easy, but Kinsey took Alvin Limardo's retainer check abyway. It turned out to be as phony as he was. In real life his name was John Daggett, a chronic drunk with a record as long as your arm and a reputation for sleazy deals. But he wasn't just a deadbeat. By the time kinsey caught up with him, he was a dead body with a whole host of people who were delighted to hear the news. But how do you make a stiff pay up what he owes you?

The story runs from 1946 to 2000. Elmwood, Missouri grows from a post-World War II town surrounded by farmland to a twenty-first century enclave near the highway. It parallels what many of us have experienced or are experiencing in small towns now. It is a good story and definitely worth reading.

I enjoyed reading this book as much as any other V.C. Andrews book. They are interesting stories and you get into the lives of the characters. I like getting detailed backgrounds on each character and seeing how their lives change for the good by the end of the story.
