6th Target, The (Women's Murder Club #6)
And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the street...more
The 6th Target is typical of the series. It has a couple of different police cases going on, one involving a mass murderer and the other child abduction. All four mem ...more
I am tried of Lindsey's whinning. I don't buy the friendships between the women, totally falls flat. More then anything, I don't see the appeal of Lind ...more
The 6th Target rolls right out with a mass murder on a ferry by a crazy guy. Then, unexpectedly, the crazy guy turns himself in, making me wonder what we are going to do with the rest of the book. The last ...more
But, PSA: THESE BOOKS ARE TEETH-MASHING, HAIR-PULLING-LY BAD. (But if you smoke a little, they become more bearable.)
Lindsay is a whiny, unprofessional baby. Listening to her complain about being Lieutenant and asking to drop back down to her previous rank of Sergeant (I mean, just keep playing into that sexist idea that this job is too hard for ...more
Starts out think that the character is crazy but then it was freaking me out because the character(view spoiler)[is really a sick person with mommy issue and jealously too. What he did to his sister and those people is unbelievable and I don't get how someone would consider him mental because he knew exactly what he did. (hide spoiler)]
Re-read for a challenge- August 28,2016
Still a good quick book to read and Lindsay is still a tough girl with a great heart.
It took me a while to warm up to the main characters in the Women's Murder Club series, but I can tell you that I have finally become invested in their lives and individual stories. This particular book did a good job dividing its time among the four women. There were two mysteries as ...more
I though it would be interesting because I'm normally a huge fan of James Patterson's books, but this one seemed to drag on forever. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I read this one ...more
I made it to Chapter 17, and I am sorely disappointed. I've set the book down, so no spoilers here. I watched "Women's Murder Club" on television and really enjoyed Lindsay Boxer and her adventures. I was expecting something similar in this novel, but I found that the writing was so jagged that it distracted from the storyline.
It's fast-paced, but it isn't smooth. Sentences are truncated (a particul ...more
I am totally addicted to this series, all the books are simply fun and entertaining and this one is no exception. In the 6th target we find more than just a page turner with a great plot and many surprises, a real doze of adrenaline for the readers. While we are engrossed in this mystery we get to know a little more about the members of this unusual Club and find ourselves immersed into their different life choices.
This one begins on a ferry boat, when ...more
It looks like another "co-author" is picking up the series in Book 7, which I think is a good thing because Maxine Paetro is wandering away from the concept of the Club (i.e. the women working together to solve crimes). The ladies are all off in different directions with different plots in this book.
As with Book 5, there are plots ga ...more
Fred Brinkley, a man who hears voices inside his head, is videotaped murdering four innocent people aboard a ferry. He's charged with attempting to kill two others, one of whom happens to be a now critically injured Claire Washburn.
A five-year-old piano playing prodigy by the name of Madison Tyler is snatched off the street along with her nanny, and wi ...more
This book had 3 crimes going on and the police detective, Lindsay was involved in all 3. A person is killing and the new apartments the criminal reporter has moved into. A child of a rich family has been kidnapped. A madman shoots innocent people on a San Francisco ferry ...more
The overload of cases means an overload of people (suspects, victims, lawyers, and witnesses among others) to keep track of. Even if you can remember who each person is, you still have to figure out which case they belong to.
The pace i ...more
Again in this book there are a lot of plots unfolding instead of the focus on one big case. On top of that I feel like Lindsay Boxer, our main heroine spends most of this book crying and irrational, or acting completely out of character. It felt like she was going through menopause and a midlife crisis all at the same time. Pretty much in this book if Lindsay gets what she wants she cries. ...more
The write up for this book is for a serial kidnapper that supposedly has the city on edge. With lots of terrifying twists and turns that is guaranteed to keep one on the edge of their seat. When the reality was that this novel was more of ...more
