3.0 out of 5 stars "To make a judgment, we need the answers." Michael Woods, September 14, 2010
This review is from: The 9th Judgment (Women's Murder Club) (Hardcover)
3 1/2 stars

My rating on this novel was on the plus side of three so I gave it a 3 1/2 star rating.

The Prologue of the novel reveals a cat burglar who is stealing valuable jewels from Casey Dowling, the wife of movie star, Marcus Dowling. As the thief leaves, she knocks over the console table and wakes the Dowlings. Their marriage was on the rocks and Markus realizes that he has a chance to murder his wife and ger away with it. He kills Casey and blames the thief.

Another case involves a psychopatathic killer whose motto is "Women and Children First." He kills women with their babies and then, needlessly, kills the baby. He becomes know an The Lipstick Killer and terrorizes San Francisco.

Detective Lindsay Boxer of the homicide division is working with her partner, Rick Conklin, to catch both killers.

As the killer of the woman and baby strikes again, Det. Boxer intensifies her search but is hindered by the lack of witnesses.

Spending more time together, Lindsay and her partner, Rick find their emotions toward each other growing and they have difficulty concentrating on the cases and not giving in to their feelings toward each other.

Lindsay is an well described character who is easy to like with her courage and determination. The plot had plenty of action but was predictable.

I love mysteries, but I've never tried this author.

Andrea;
If you were going to try Patterson, begin with his first book,'Along Came a Spider" That's the one made into a movie with Morgan Freeman and was outstanding.

He has written many great mysteries, but they all have only his name on them. Those written in collaboration with other authors are weak. This book was pathetic in my mind, compared to others he has written. Pass it up.

Sorry to disagree, but this is without doubt the worst Patterson I ever read. I have read most if not all books he has written, and when he writes in collaboration his creativity gets lost. Very few of those books were worth the time. This was for the money.

Hi Maggie:
Thanks for your comments. I agree with you about his writing with other writers and the quality of his work compared to when he first began writing.
I also feel that women would be offended by the character who has a motto of "women and children first"
you made good points.
Mike
PS If you want a great thriller, please check out my review of "Power Down" By Coes. That's one that I couldn't put down.
