reviewed on + 46 more book reviews


Police Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is caught up in two sets of serial murders in the 5th. book of the Women's Murder Club Mysteries. In the first, young women are murdered, dressed in expensive clothes, and placed in luxury cars. In the second, patients in a local hospital seem to be doing well, and then they die mysteriously from medicine which is wrongly administered. The second case results in a courtroom battle which produces some of the best action in the book. Although the pages turn quickly and the action is sustained, there are some flaws in this book. First of all, when the perpetrators are identified, there is very little explanation as to their motivation for committing the crimes in the way that they did. There are a few threads left hanging, especially at the end which comes abruptly and without explanation as to how the murderer was apprehended and how the hospital computer system was entered in order to commit the crime.
