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.

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.

The first in a terrific series - very entertaining. i have been getting a few at a time because they're quick reads. The woman who is the 'main character' is funny, tough and compassionate - just the kind of lady we want as a friend ourselves. And her friends are great too. you'll get hooked on this team, I'll bet. Enjoy!!

This is a fast paced story with many twists and turns that hold your interest. 1st to Die has both thrilling twists and a little love story. In this book Patterson takes on the narrative perspective of a woman to create a page-turning opening to The Woman's Murder Club. I thought the plot of the book kept it interesting and hard to put down. Another aspect of the book that made it worth reading was the clear character descriptions. As well as describing characters vividly, James Patterson throws in many strong details. I had a difficult time putting it down. Lindsay Boxer is a wonderful character. Her detective skills are also impressive. I love how the "Women's Murder Club" developes and grows. The relationships between the women are honest and endearing - the kind of women you'd want as your friends. The murders are twisted and the plot moves along quickly. I love the twists that the story takes and the ending was a bit of a surprise.

I LOVE this book and the new series it begins. I read most all of James Patterson's other books (I love Alex Cross...) first as I am not big on "girly, girly mysteries". But, I should have known better than to assume that of James Patterson. 1st to Die was refreshing, thrilling and fun all at the same time. I am prepared to knock out the whole Women's Murder Club series now!

The Women's Murder Club pits four San Francisco women professionals against a serial killer who's stalking and murdering newlyweds in bestselling author James Patterson's newest thriller. Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector who's just gotten some very bad news. She deals with it by immersing herself in her newest case and soliciting the personal as well as professional support of her closest friend, who happens to be the city's medical examiner. The two women, along with an ambitious and sympathetic reporter and an assistant DA, form an unlikely alliance, pooling their information and bypassing the chain of command in an engaging, suspenseful story whose gruesome setup is vintage Patterson.

Excellent thriller. In particular, the chacters, their pains and pleasures are well done. Someone is killing newly weds, for no apparent reason. It takes the skills of each of the women, in the club, to put this together.

Was my first James Patterson book. My husband bought the book, told me it was the story of Women's Murder Club, which I loved to watch. Got me hooked. Was upset at number 3, disappointed at 8 and 9 as it seemed to take away from the rest of the stories. But am looking for number 10 next year. Patterson is a great writer and keeps you interestered. I highly recommend his books.

Personal Book - never been swapped! This book is the FIRST in the Women's Murder Club series, of which there are now 4.

Main character is Lindsey Boxer, a homicide detective for the San Francisco Police Department. When a newlywed couple is found brutally murdered just hours after their wedding (stil in their wedding attire), boxer is put on the case, and it takes off from there. Two other coules are also murdered, but one is in Napa and the other in Cleveland. Boxer is unsure whether there is a serial killer at work, but it is up to her to find the common denominator in these homicides.

The Women's Murder Club is made up of four women, Lindset Boxer (see above), Claire Washburn (San Francisco Medical Examiner), Jill Bernhardt (Assistant DA), and Cindy Thomas (reporter for the Chronicle). These women use their individual skills to crack open the case, a little at a time.

This book will take you on a roller coaster ride from the very beginning. It is full of twisting plot turns, even one at the very end! A very well reviewed bok, give it a try!

Cindy, a reporter for the Chronicle who is trying to get a scoop on the case somehow manages to get up to the floor of the hotel where the first murders were committed. She gets a peek at the groom on the floor by the door before she is found and hauled out. Later, Cindy sees Lindsay go into the ladies room in an emotional mess and follows her.

Later when they meet again where another newly married couple have been reported missing Lindsay decides to make a deal with Cindy to keep things under control. They end up becoming friends in the process. Lindsay, who is dealing with this new shock about her health decides she has to solve this case and decides to ask some female friends for help.

For Lindsay Boxer, working in a field that is dominated by men is difficult. But when your father is an ex-cop who is not necessarily renowned for exemplary duty, she has to constantly prove her worth to her fellow law enforcers. All these she could handle while still maintaining her optimistic approach to life. But nothing can prepare her for the crime that will rock the city of San Francisco.

A newlywed couple is brutally murdered just hours after the wedding. And while the SFPD is still baffled by the crime, the killer soon strikes again in two other cities, with two newlywed couples also murdered. Aptly dubbed by the media as "the bride and groom murders", Lindsay is sickened by the horrible deaths and vows to bring the killer to justice. Never in her life as a law enforcer has she been more determined, especially now when she must also deal with a life-threatening disease. So she turns to her best friend Claire, a medical examiner. Together, they try to come up with possible leads that will help them solve the murder. Along the way, Lindsay meets the ambitious reporter Cindy Thomas, and sassy assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt. In the most unexpected twist, these four different and brilliant women form the Women's Murder Club. Heedless of the standard procedures, they work together gathering every bit of information they can find intent on unraveling the truth.

1st TO DIE is a thrilling beginning to a series that has got me hooked. The prologue already serves as a teaser, as we are first introduced to the lead female character. Then when chapter one begins with the grisly murder, I had a feeling I was in for a roller-coaster ride. And I wasn't wrong. I was absolutely riveted by the twists and turns to the story. Trying to guess who the murderer is had me turning the pages over. Lindsay's struggle to cope with a personal tragedy also had me drawn to her character, not to mention the love that develops between her and her partner. And let's not forget the friendship that starts between these remarkable women, whom we will get to know more of as the Women's Murder Club continues. Now these four don't hang out together to talk Jimmy Choos or Prada! Once you meet them, you'd want to know more about them.

This is a real-page turner that had me on the edge of my seat and I can't wait to read more of James Patterson's novels.

Page 1: It is an unusually warm night in July, but I'm shivering badly as I stand on the substantial gray stone terrace outside my apartment. I'm looking out over glorious San Francisco and I have my service revolver pressed against the side of my temple. "Goddamn you, God!" I whisper. Quite a sentiment, but appropriate and just, I think.
I hear Sweet Martha whimpering. I turn to see she is watching me through glass doors that lead to the terrace. She knows that something is wrong. "It's okay," I call her through the door. "I'm okay. Go lie down, girl." Martha won't leave, though, won't look away. She's a good, loyal friend who's been nuzzling me good-night every single night for the past six years.
As I stare into the Border Collie's eyes, I think that maybe I should go inside and call the girls, Clair....................
