Be careful reading this book because you will forever be hooked on Lindsay Boxer. I couldn't put this book down and went on to read through book four in one week.

This was my first James Patterson read, another thrilling whodunit mystery. I just kept on turning the pages, eager to find out who the killer was. The story took an unexpected turn around Part Three. After reading a bit further, I figured out who the killer was before the killer was revealed. I absolutely hate it when that happens. I was disappointed until I got to the very end, when the story took yet another unexpected turn. That's what I look for when I read a mystery novel. I like to be kept guessing until the very end. I will definitely continue with the Women's Murder Club series, see what's next for these women.

I am reading this book with a book club group and I loved it. I never have ready this type of book before - Murder - Mystery, but I really enjoyed it.

I have even ordered the number 2 and 3 books that follow!

I lucked into these books and liked them from the start.
Until I found PBS I didn't know where to find others. I am glad to find the about how it started and I wish I remembered the other books I have read. Anyone would enjoy these books

I enjoyed the mystery plot and the characters were fairly well developed, but I was disappointed that the story line developed into descriptive sex episodes, also. Because of this I will not read the rest of the series.
James Patterson's books for young adults (Maximim Ride) are far more enjoyable. I would recommmend them to readers of all ages.

While I really enjoyed the plot from this book, I doubt I will finish the series. The relationships came across as forced and the dialogue didn't read as realistic either.. came across as a man writing how he THOUGHT a woman would act/speak/think/interact. The character development didn't ring true... It's an ok read.

I loved this book! I was in tears at the end though and I totally didn't expect it. Cannot wait to read the next one.

Having first been attracted to the books by the TV show, I was pleased to see that the books are much better (are they not always better?). The whole series is hard to put down. They pull you in and make it impossible to put down. All mystery lovers will be impressed with James Patterson's writing style. The shorter chapters in the book make it an easy read for those on the go.

The killer wonders "What is the worst thing anyone has ever done?", as he sets out to do worse.

San Francisco homicide investigator, Lindsay Boxer, is called to the most disturbing crime scene, a young couple has been murdered on their wedding night, the bride still in her wedding gown. This horrifying scene lays heavy in Lindsay's mind.

As the investigation begins, another murder is committed, again another young couple on their wedding night.

1st To Die" is the first novel in a brand new series, and what a great novel it is. The plot races along, combining the murders, devistating health issues for Lindsay, and some romance, twisting and turning all the way to the shocking the conclusion.
