Yuki has a make or break case on her hands. Dr. Candace Martin is charged with shooting her husband in cold blood. It appears to be an open and shut case, a sure, must-have win for Yuki. That is until Lindsay finds herself drawn into the case and starts poking around. Maybe things aren't as perfect as they appear to be. And Yuki's slam-dunk case may now be in jeopardy.
Cindy is basking in the glow of being head-over-heels in love with Rich, who just happens to be Lindsay's partner. Working as the crime reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle. She knows in this day and age - with internet news and bloggers - that she doesn't have 100% job security. She needs to find that one big story that will make her stand out, and hopefully hold onto her job. She gets the inside scoop on reports of several women being found passed out near their homes, with no memory of the past several hours. Cindy uses her investigative skills and tracks down a lead that will put her in a very precarious position.Read more ›
Lindsey catches a case of a missing baby. Fifteen year old Avis Richardson has been found wandering a country road near a lake and is bleeding out from having given birth and facing a complication. The problem is, where is the baby? Who helped her deliver the baby? Did they kidnap the baby after tricking the 15 year old Avis into selling the baby? Those are all questions that Lindsey and her partner will have to try and solve. The chase has lots of twists and turns and could have been a great stand alone story all on it's own. But because it is woven with two other plot lines it doesn't get the development it needs to become a fantastic stand alone. Instead it ties up a bit to neatly and predictably.
Yuki on the other hand is in the trial of her life as she is trying to get a murder conviction on Dr. Candace Martin for the murder of her husband. There are plenty of twists and turns in this story as well. Maybe even more twists than the other two plots. It is the more interesting of the three stories. Again, there is so much more that could be developed but because you have three stories going on at once you don't get as much development as you want. Who really killed her husband? Was it a hit man hired by a former lover?Read more ›
The 9TH JUDGMENT featured an evil killer targeting mothers and babies and also a jewelry thief caught up in a murder. There were thrilling chapters from the killer's point of view and the two mysteries were linked an a thrilling fashion.
In this book, Patterson goes back to a formula from a few earlier books. He introduces three different mini-plots. None of them are tied together and none of them are original. Reading a book with 3 mini plots is like going to see a summer blockbuster at theater and they show a Law and Order episode instead.
There are 3 lame plots. A 15 year-old girl is found wandering the streets. She claims to have delivered a baby and can't remember anything about it. Lindsay Boxer launches a frantic search to discover what happened to the baby and whether or not the girl is telling the truth.
Also, women throughout the city are being raped, and not remembering a thing about it. Reporter Cindy Thomas takes the role of reporter/investigator to get to the bottom of it.
Finally, Yuki, the DA, is prosecuting a woman suspected of killing her husband. But, surprise! She claims to be innocent.
This book disappointed me because the stories were so unoriginal and uninspired. None of the characters were any real danger, except of the contrived nature.
Patterson's writing style of not going into depth in any part of the story means that none of the three mini-stories have any depth or characterization. While it has the usual character development of the four women, this is one you might be better off skipping.
