Perhaps one of the worst books ever. This was the only Patterson-related series I still read and I'm thinking this is the last JP novel I will ever read. Usually there's some overarching crime that keeps you intrigued, but the first "mystery" was resolved halfway through the book and the other one or two were just as ridiculous. And what happened to the ladies actually hanging out with each other...part of what made this series different is that the women worked together and there was none of th ...more

I didn't really like this book, but then again I don't believe I'm the target audience for it.

This is my first James Patterson book, and I bought it because I recognized the name and thought it would be interesting to read something by a different author.

I'm a 51 year-old male, and I think this is clearly a "chick book". I'm not scared of books about romance, but this book contains characters pining for babies, falling in love with men with big athletic shoulders and soft brown hair curling arou

I continue to read the Women's Murder Club series out of some misguided loyalty to the characters. I was interested to see how Lindsay's wedding and marriage would turn out, however, this took up about five pages...The rest of the book was taken up with three separate (and terribly disjointed) cases going on at once - Lindsay's investigation into a missing baby, Yuki's legal case against a doctor accused of murdering her husband, and a poorly tacked on plot about Cindy investigating a series of ...more

James Patterson has just started phoning it in. This book was just a disappointment. As a fan of the series, I want to read everything that comes out about the group. It seems that Patterson has taken advantage of this and put out mindless dribble. The case is a kidnapping that's not a kidnapping. The relationships between the women seem superficial. The dialogue is weak. When the book ends, I'm glad that it's over, but not at all satisfied.

The Women’s Murder Club is the only series by James Patterson that I read. I have tried a couple of the others, but this is the one that I keep coming back to. I have been trying to figure out what it is exactly that pulls me back and all I have come up with is that I am not completely sold on Lindsay Boxer, the main character, but I adore the down to earth common sense of Dr. Claire Washburn, the medical examiner. There is something very appealing about her character that has me paying closer a ...more

While the WMC series has become a little more hokey in books past,. I keep reading. I loved the short-lived TV series and always hope Patterson will add some more spice to these books. Alas, it was not there, but it is a cult fav. and so I keep reading.

Boxer finally ties the knot at the beginning of the book, but is left to forge ahead with her life and job, even as Joe is home to tend the house. She wrestles with this throughout and comes to some interesting conclusions at various times. Oh, Li

3.5 Stars!

Lindsay Boxer is called in to investigate the case of a teenage girl who is discovered in a terrible condition. Without much to go on from the victim all Lindsay has to work on is the medical reports of the Victim. Avis seemed to have delivered a baby, been drugged and probably raped in her recent past. Yuki Castellano is working on probably the biggest case of her life that can make or break her career. It is a murder case where it seems pretty obvious that the wife had murdered her h

I enjoyed this book.
Yuki had a much larger role to play,
all the members of the Club are undergoing important relational changes for the good,
the explicit sex which seemed to be growing in the last book has been toned down,
and all of plot lines reached good, reasonable conclusions.
I continue to enjoy the short chapterlength,
though as one reviewer said,
it's so easy to say, "Only 3 pages? I can read another chapter before going to bed."
And one chapter becomes one more, and one more, until it's much

In the last book 9th Judgement I was not a happy bunny. The lead character Lindsay seemed to have had a personality transplant and had become this wimp overnight. Thankfully she seems to have got some of her backbone back in this latest book. Her and her work partner Rich are a good fit and the case they worked on was the main thread of this book in the beginning. Thankfully the story was somewhat better than some of the others in the series although a long way off as good as they could be.

I wish I could say this was a book that I wasn’t completely disappointed with.

The first book in this series, 1st to Die, is one of my all time favorites. And I think it’s for that reason, and that reason alone, that I've stuck with this series. At one point I could tell you that I have enjoyed the character progression of the four main women in this series, but now that we’ve arrived at the 10th book, Lindsay Boxer seems like a pale shadow of herself.

This book was… fine. I mean, it was a passa

The Women's Murder Club is back in this 10th installment of the series and I am glad that they are here!!!!!! If you have a crime that needs to be solved and you need help, these are the ladies to help you.

Avis Richardson is a scared teenager who is found bloody and naked on the side of the road. When taken to the hospital by a stranger who found her, it is evident that the blood is coming from recently giving birth - but where is the baby?

The 10th installment of the Women's Murder Club and the now familiar cast is back. Detective Lindsay Boxer has finally married Joe Molinari. Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano has a slam-dunk case that she can't lose, and a new man. Chief Medical Examiner Claire Washburn has had a baby and plays a more supportive role in this book. And reporter Cindy Thomas is shacked-up with Lindsay's police partner Rich Conklin.

In March and early April, I spent some time catching up on my reading of James Patterson novels. James Patterson has become a book industry unto himself. He, along with several co-authors, usually has anywhere from 2-5 books on various hardcover and paperback best-seller lists. For example, on the Sunday, June 2, New York Times Book Review, he and Maxine Paetro have 12th of Never at Number 4 on the Hardcover Fiction List, the E-Book Fiction List, and the Combined Print and E-Book Fiction List, Z ...more

I’ve read all the Women’s Murder Club books by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro, so of course I had to get 10th Anniversary as soon as it came out. Actually, I bought it for my mom for Mother’s Day, because she loves them too, then I borrowed it when she was done.One of my favorite aspects of the Women’s Murder Club books is how easy they are to read in a single night. The chapters are short (which I know is a turn-off to some people, but I like it), the dialogue is quick, and the descriptions ...more

How do you know when a series has gone downhill enough to hang em up? When the main "murder mystery" revolves around a 15-year-old putting her daughter up for adoption without telling her parents. The baby is adopted by a pair of lesbian Biker Gang members and eventually the whole thing gets worked out. Wow...GRIPPING!

P.S. Why would a homicide detective even be called in on a kidnapping case without any evidence of homicide, much less drag us through the boring details of a non-case!

Much like the last James Patterson that I read, The 6th Target, this book involved the four women of the Murder Club: Claire, Lindsey, Yuki and Cindy, and 3 cases: a cardiac doctor accused of murdering her husband, a series of rapes, and a teenager who gave birth under mysterious circumstances and her missing baby.
4 women, 3 cases, and short 2 to 3 page chapters. Classic James Patterson. But this one was far superior to #6; the characters and stories were cohesive, and we avoided a lot of romant

The Women's Murder Club gets a new wave of mysteries to deal with in this newest volume in the series. Sgt. Lindsey Boxer is drawn into the first of them when a teenager who has just given birth to a child walks up, raving and in just a raincoat, to a couple. The baby is nowhere to be find, and the girl is barely able to survive as she is treated in the hospital, which is able to confirm that she did really give birth. Lindsey and the rest of the police are hurrying to find the baby in the hopes ...more

I'm going to have to start classifying these as romance, I think, especially after these last two. LOL Flirtations, weddings, and all the rest.

Anyway, this wasn't the best of the series but it wasn't bad by any means, either. I do still love Lindsay and Claire, while Yuki kind of needs a bit of a backbone sometimes. Despite that, I get her position... you're either a bit timid or a raging b*tch out to prove a point. I'd rather she be timid. Now Cindy, on the other hand, I've about had enough of

Occasionally I find myself wondering why I’m still reading a certain series of books, and this is one such occasion.
Not that there is a whole lot wrong with this story. It is still typical Patterson fare; short chapters, quick action and not too many details. It is still a very easy and quick read.
On the other hand, there wasn’t anything to excite me in this book either.
The story revolves around three separate cases.

This was my favorite book in the series to date. We have Lindsay Boxer returning to work after her long awaited marriage to Joe. The wedding was beautiful but the world Lindsay returns to is damaged.

Lindsay is assigned to a confusing missing baby case. Was she assigned this case because of her new Lieutenant's feelings about her? Or is there more to the case than it first appears.

As is usual in this series, we also follow a court case with Yuki that is fraught with twists and turns. Cindy, the j

The Good: Great interwoven mysteries I didn't see coming. Yuki is getting more interesting and it's about time. Maybe she just needed some male interaction. I especially loved Lindsay in this book, and her having to come to terms with being part of a married couple as opposed to just an individual who only consider herself.

The Bad: I would have loved to have seen a ton about Lindsay's wedding, since we've been leading up to it since almost the start of the series. It was glossed over so complete

I was really disappointed in this book. First, I felt that the editing was really sloppy. Was Jacoby Chief of Police or just a Captain? I think depending on who wrote the chapter determined his rank. That was really annoying. And, he was barely in it. He's barely been in the last few. I liked his acerbic tongue. I also didn't like that the girls weren't working together to solve a crime. They only got together to drink and socialize. Now, don't get me wrong, that is how most people are with thei ...more

Unbelievably DUMB and GROSS to boot! I listened to my first "Women's Murder Club" book, because I have enjoyed other James Patterson mysteries. I always choose the audio form of his books so that I'm being entertained with a "who dunnit" while my hands (and even mind) are busy doing other things such as drawing, sewing or gardening. Because of the formulaic storytelling, I can be certain to be entertained without having to think too much.

I didn't want to finish this book! Not only was it poorly

The young teenage girl is lost, scared and nude with blood flowing down her inner thighs. Clad only in a cheap plastic raincoat she fights her way through a wood- land, falling on a lonesome road of a San Francisco suburb; caught in the headlights of a passing car. She passes out through lack of blood and when she begins to recover she can’t remember what happened. This story soon takes an unexpected twist when other victims are found that are just as clueless as to what has befallen them. These ...more
