From Publishers Weekly

At the start of the gripping seventh Women's Murder Club thriller from bestseller Patterson and Paetro (after 2007's The 6th Target), San Francisco is still haunted by the disappearance of Michael Campion, the much-adored teenage son of a former California governor, three months earlier. Following up on a tip that Michael was last seen entering a prostitute's house, homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer and her new partner, Rich Conklin, are shocked when the hooker immediately confesses that Michael, who had a heart defect, died during sex and she disposed of his body. Lindsay's ADA pal, Yuki Castellano, is sure she has a slam-dunk case, but the trial soon takes a bizarre turn. Lindsay and Rich also scramble to track down a serial arsonist responsible for murdering a string of wealthy couples. Lindsay races to put the pieces together before the fires hit too close to home. In true Patterson style, the reader is privy to Lindsay's thoughts as well as the killers', ratcheting up the suspense an extra notch. Fans won't be disappointed with the twist at the end that not even Lindsay sees coming. (Feb.)

Review

"This lush recording opens with swirling harps. Cinematic sound effects and nuanced backing tracks intermittently heighten the drama of this mystery about an arsonist terrorising wealthy suburbanites" FT Magazine "Driving narrative is the first essential for an audiobook detective story: too many digressions make concentration falter. No one drives faster than James Patterson, whose San Francisco-set women's murder club series is snatched off the shelves by millions of readers...Patterson's masterly plot unfolds unexpectedly. The narrator, Maxine Paetro, gives members of the murder club rich and individual voice characterisation." The Times --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Fires are being set to homes of the wealthy, leaving the residents dead. Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich Conklin, are trying to find the murdering arsonists when they get a tip on another prominent case. The case involving the disappearance of Michael Campion, the son of a former governor, has been at a standstill but an anonymous tipster provides a new lead. Soon, Boxer and Conklin have a confession, but will it stand up in court? Women's Murder Club member and Assistant District Attorney, Yuki Castellano, will have the case of her life as the trial starts. Meanwhile, will Boxer and Conklin find the deadly arsonists?

The members of the Women's Murder Club are at it yet again in 7TH HEAVEN. Each book is written to stand alone although the friendship of these women has grown throughout the series. There are hints about past incidents that fans of the series will appreciate. It should be noted that newcomers to the series will miss the character development that has built slowly throughout the series, as some of the members of the Women's Murder Club only make brief appearances in 7TH HEAVEN.

Patterson and Paetro delve a bit further into Lindsay Boxer's psyche, this time examining her relationship to Joe versus her commitment to work. Yuki's insecurities are also examined as she is up against a female attorney not known for losing. Will these two members grow stronger as they face adversity?

James Patterson and Maxine Paetro deliver another fantastic thriller with 7th HEAVEN. The fast pace will have readers rapidly turning pages to see just how things will unfold. 7TH HEAVEN is yet another hit from these two talented authors and is easily recommended.

I have consistently read James Patterson's books throughout the years and have really enjoyed his work. I have read all of the Womens Murder Club books. However, I am not a big fan of his books which he writes with other writers. Neither story seems complete to me. It seems like Patterson just writes his part of the story but never really finishes it and the other writer adds his bit but doesnt actually finishes his story either.

I found this book a confusing read. Patterson wrote the thriller part of the book I would assume but, in the end, he left the reader hanging. I assume Paetro wrote the human interest story in the book. The end of this story was unsatisfactory too. Patterson is too good a writer to keep doing this.

Recently , I read one of his other books, "Step on a Crack" and it was even worse than this. Both stories left the reader hanging.

If I had known, I would not have bought these two books new. I would have waited to get them for 50 cents at a sale. They are not worth their price. The stories are just not up to Patterson's usual standard. He can do much better.

I have read most of Patterson's books (about 95%). Patterson really dissapointed me with his most recent Cross books (my husband jokes that the latest Cross novels have been entirely written by the lesser-known co-authors).

The problem I have is that Patterson is using this huge font size and what is supposed to be 300-and-some pages, is really more like 150 pages using huge font size. Is Patterson dumbing us down? This last installment of the WMC, while engaging, seemed more like one of those mystery short stories you find at the end of a magazine more than a novel or book. Has Patterson become a magazine short-story writer? Guess the next book will answer that-In the meantime, I suggest reading novels by John Kellerman. The man is amazing with details and with telling a gripping crime story-Kellerman does not cut corners. You can finish a Patterson novel within 24 hrs but a Kellerman book will keep you more busy and if you want to look at it this way, you get more bang for your buck-Patterson's style has become a boilerplate recipe which is nowadays enlightened by the talent of young new writers who co-author his most recent works (in other words, Patterson may truly be fishing while the co-author does all the work as my husband believes). For now, I am reading Kellerman's "Gone" which I recommend and crossing my fingers that Patterson delivers a more substantial novel next time.

I love the Women's Murder Club series better than Cross - mostly because Cross tends to be gorier. But, I didn't enjoy 7th Heaven as much as the other books in the series. There wasn't as much interaction between Lindsey, Claire, Cindy & Yuki as in the other books of the series, and this is one of the things I enjoyed the most in the other books. And, the two stories seemed to drag just a bit, until near to the end of the book. But, when the stories picked up, they picked up in the Patterson fashion that I love.

Although I am and will continue to be a fan of James Patterson, I too agree that his/their books are starting to lack substance. As for 7th Heaven, it is a fast read and keeps you interested; however, there are way too many things that just don't make sense.

I know that the boy that disappeared wanted to have a quality life as long as he could and that is why he disappeared, but at the time of his disappearance no one knew he was seeing the prostitute, so why didn't she go with him when he left? Also, we all know how long it takes to bring a case to trial. It had already been months since he disappeared when the anonyomous tip came in that he had been seen leaving her house. Add that to the time to get the case tried and it would probably be over a year. Why would he not have wondered where she was? She said in the end that they had hatched the plan weeks before he left, and when she was called in for the interrogation she got confused and confessed to killing him. This was just not believable. Especially when she blamed her former boyfriend for the actual dismembering, which of course he would deny and probably had an alibi anyway. Additionally, they never had anything other than a phone call saying he was seen there and the person didn't come forward (it was the author)and they were basing the whole case on that tip? Further, the story about the author is way out there too. He was supposed to be such a renowned author and rich, but yet he was worried over spending the advance on this latest book, so much that he was willing to kill? I know he had a gambling problem, but yet he was living in high style.
