I know I complain about this series every time I write about it, so I am taking this book off. As a matter of fact, this was my favorite book of the series (so far). I thought there was more mystery and surprise in this one than in the others and the relationships of the women moved along nicely.
A poster child for goodwill vanishes and after six months the police finally have a lead and they bring in an angelic looking prostitute for questioning. Lindsay and Conklin are able to get a co...more

It all begins with the mysterious disappearance of the ex-governor's teenage son, and then spins off into a series of mysterious arson fires of luxurious Bay Area homes, leaving the owners dead. Evidence seemingly leads nowhere.
Meanwhile, lurking in the background, two young men who call themselves Hawk and Pidge are orchest...more
It was given to me by a friend who assured me I would like it. She had read it, her husband had read it and they'd thoroughly enjoyed it.
Well... I guess I did like it but I was surprised by the style. To be honest, I expected something a lot more intricate, if that's the right word. No, it's not really. Something more impressive by a...more
The books seem to have settled into a formulaic familiarity. Mystery going on in the background which is visited concurrently alongside chapters about an ongoing court case which Yuki the assistant district attorney will be trying. Boxer leads the investigation into the ongoin...more
The real mystery, a high-profile missing teen cold case, has a reliable lead. Three months after the fact, an anonymous tipster claims to have had seen the tee...more
Well, it got no better. I'd likda like to know the motivation of the pyromaniacs, perhaps understand what happened to what's his name's mom and w...more
This novel is captivating, full tension and violence right from the start. It opens with a couple of serial killer arsonists invading homes of wealthy individuals restraining them and setting them on fire. Action doesn’t stop there it goes on none stop, Patterson and Paetro truly know how to deliver a thriller and provide the challenges it takes to keep the readers glued to the edge of their seat. To add further mystery, the authors intertwine the case of a rich...more
During the beginning of the investigation, Lindsey and her partner Rich get called in to investigate a prostitute in the disappearance of th...more
Maybe, after such a long break on thriller novels by the author, I just lost the footing somehow. My last book on the Women's Murder Club was read in 2009. The thrill is just not the same anymore.
A 3-star, just because I could be liking / hating this book. I am in between of these 2 emotions, so I would just stick in the middle.
First of all, why is there...more
I just hope that Yuki will be able to win a case. So far each case that she has been lead counsel on, she lost. Though in this case, I am GLAD that she did. I hope that the remaning books can stay on this level or get better. And what is Boxer gonna do with the engagement? All I can say is, if she is having mixe...more
This book rated more of a 3.5 instead of barely a 3 like the last 2 books. There were several crimes but they were at least a little more focused, although we never really get the reasons behind the crimes anymore. (Although one did have a nice twist that I didn't know for certain, but I felt/hoped it was something like that). Lindsay is was less of a crazy lady in this book, and now I think I understand what was happening in the last few books, especially the last o...more
Two cases are on concurrently in the 7th Heaven; the disappearance of the governor's son and series of arson murders. With the governor's son's case, since the start I had this...more
I kind of forgot how good this series of books are. With the twelfth one just released, I realized I was falling way behind and picked up the seventh book, "7th Heaven." This series involves the Women's Murder Club and good mysteries and the seventh book left me with a lot of burning questions - but in a good way. Did Michael Campion die or not? Was it a carefully planned hoax or was it murder? What did birds have to do with the murders? James Patterson did it again another great read from the W...more
