From the back cover:
The Women's Murder Club is back! A brilliantly diabolical killer is murdering people from every walk of life. The deaths seem unrelated but police homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer senses a connection and, together with medical examiner Claire, assistant D.A. Jill, and Chronicle reporter Cindy, finds a link that sends a chill through the entire nation. This killer's motives are unspeakable.
Really drawn into this series from the start and still going strong with #8. Women's Murder Club has been as addictive as his Alex Cross books. James Patterson has been one of my favorite authors for a long time.
I couldn't read this book fast enough to get to book 3.
I am in love with the Women's Murder Club and
can't get enough of Lindsey Boxer and her trio of fellow
crime solvers. The book has suspense, romance,
murder, humor and just plain awww. You'll love
this book to the the very last page! Thank goodness
Lindsey and the gang continue in the 3rd, 4th, 5th etc.!!
[close] The story moves along at a nice pace but I was very disappointed in the way this story wrapped up. It seemed such a far-reaching, implausible leap made only for the sake of a twist for the ending.
Lindsay Boxer, San Francisco's only woman homicide detective, is back in this mind blowing new thriller.
