The 8th Confession is the latest installment in James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series. This book finds the police officer, Lindsey Boxer, and her partner, Rich Conklin, trying to solve the murders of some of San Francisco's high society, but they can't determine the method or motive for the murders. An old friend of Lindsey's who works cold cases provides some information that proves to be helpful.

In the meantime, Cindy, the news reporter, discovers a homeless man, Bagman Jesus, brutally murdered on the street and pursues the story doggedly when the police seem to be ignoring it. At first she thinks he's saintly but later discovers that her first impression was wrong.

Yuki, the prosecutor is involved in a murder case she must win in order to keep her reputation intact. It starts to look like the jury will be hung.

Claire, the medical examiner doesn't appear much in this book, but she does provide an important piece of the puzzle.

The 8th Confession was written by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and it fits the pattern of other James Patterson books - short chapters and a quick build-up of suspense. There's a lot of action and little character development. This is the eighth book in the series, and while it's not necessary to read the books in order, I think the story develops better if you do. There was one little aside in Yuki's personal life that I didn't really care for, but all in all, this is a light, entertaining read.
