Editorial Reviews

Review

"Those who haven't read any of the novels in the Women's Murder Club series are cheating themselves."―BookReporter.com

"McCormick's versatile range and vocal skills portray lead Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich Conklin, with decisiveness, and even a love interest. She perfectly renders their commitment to work the homeless case on personal time. Add meth labs, drugs, and poisonous snakes-and McCormick delivers a high-octane thriller that won't disappoint."―AudioFile Magazine on 8th Confession

"Patterson and Paetro are at their best here, weaving a number of plots together to create a novel that dips and flows across genre lines.... A series that shows no signs of fatigue or flagging."―BookReporter.com

Format: Hardcover
I've read all of the Women's Murder Club novels - some were excellent (books 1-5 and book 7), some were awful (books 6 and 8) and I'm so glad I went with my gut on this one and bought it as I thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact I'd go as far as saying that this was my favourite of the whole series.

Like most of the others in the series, there's two main cases going on - the first is a psychopath known as "The Lipstick Killer" who is terrorising San Francisco by murdering mothers and their babies on the street and at random. The next is a cat burglar called "Hello Kitty" who is being framed for murder when a well known movie star shoots his wife following a robbery at their home. Lindsey and the gang have their hands full in this one, so there isn't a slow moment. Some of the scenes were so exciting I was flying through the pages as I just couldn't stop reading - a quick hour's read turned into a whole evening's binge and I had the book finished in 4 hours! Some bits of the story were a little predictable, maybe because I read a lot of James Patterson novels so I am very familiar with his formulas now, but that didn't stop it from being one of the best I've read from him for a while.

One thing I noticed in this book was that the main attention has been turned to Lindsay again, which is great as some of the other characters - Cindy and Yuki in particular - make the stories in the previous novels quite dull and I find these characters to be too arrogant and generally annoying, so didn't enjoy the ones when they were in the spotlight so much.

Although it is the ninth in the series, this could still be picked up by someone new to the Women's Murder Club novels and easily get into the characters and the gripping story.

Format: Hardcover
Sergeant Lindsay Boxes and her team of co-workers, friends and outside influences are battling two horrific crime scenes simultaneous. There is only so much of Lindsay to go around which is why she has surrounded herself with great friends and women who are as supportive as they are brutally honest. This time though Lindsay is truly out there on her own as she battles a high profile robbery turned homicide and serial killer who is targeting young mothers and their babies.

While the burglary seems to be part of a string performed by the Hello Kitty bandit the question of why someone got killed this time is puzzling. The husband is an actor that may be putting on a great performance for the police as his story is so well rehearsed that it might not be believable and his excuses too flimsy. But the truly baffling crime spree seems to be coming from someone who is shooting women and their children leaving cryptic messages at each crime scene with the same letters but in different order. Nothing matches anything ever witnessed before and Lindsay is willing to put everything she has on the line to get this one closed even take her clothes off and prance around just to prove to the killer she is serious about stopping him.

While the murder of the rich socialite gets the attention the serial killer is escalating his behavior and making less sense at each crime scene. Lindsay tries to stay on top of both fronts but when the demands from the serial killer make it seem like he is less about vengeance and more about money she turns her attention in that direction because this person is truly more dangerous.

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.

Wow. That's really all there is to say. I started and finished this book in one setting. The short chapter style of Patterson made it a lot easier but still this book was un-put-downable awesomeness. Through most of the book you know the "who" of the who-dun-it but you don't know the why. The why is what makes the book really stand out. Each mystery of the book leaves you trying to put the puzzle pieces together. Every time I thought that I knew why or how the book was going to end, I was proven wrong. I think that is what made the book so good for me.

The characters who make up The Women's Murder Club all make an appearance but I felt that there wasn't much character development. Yes all of our favorite people made an appearance but we didn't get to see much of their lives outside of the scope of the crimes. The plot more than made up for the characters though. If you've enjoyed any of these books in the past, don't miss this one!
