Lindsey Boxer is pregnant with her first child but that does not mean that her work load has slowed down. Chaz Smith, a millionaire, was gunned down and Lindsey discovers the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Fransisco's most untouchable criminals. The gun had been taken from her departments evidence locker. The murderer therefore must be a policeman/woman. Then Lindsey is called out to a house where two heads have been displayed in the garden of a world famous actor. More hea ...more

Another good installment in the Women's Murder Club series. While some criticise the lack of character development, I see what I need to see and find the story flows quite well. This is one of the few Patterson series that actually has some depth and keeps my interest. Why, oh why, can Patterson not focus on his series and keep the one-offs from sullying his name? Alas, this is a constant question in my reviews, so I will keep asking until I find an adequate response.

The mystery is a great one,

11th Hour picks right up from where we left off at the end of 10th Anniversary. Lindsay, Cindy, Clair, and Yuki, the four inseparable friends of the Woman's Murder Club will have to work together like never before to solve some of San Francisco's worst crimes yet.
Lindsay, now pregnant with her first child, doesn't miss a beat as she begins investigating a grotesque and freakish case of seven decapitated heads discovered in the garden of the historical Ellsworth compound owned by famous actor, H

Oh my! I was hoping she would have the baby by the end of this book. Now I just have to move on to 12 right now hoping she does. Once again love the characters and the multiple crime plots! Some relationship drama in this one also. I will move on the 12 now. I love these books because you can easily sit and read these books in a matter of three hours because of the short chapters.

I have pretty much given up on James Patterson.

I still enjoy his Alex Cross -- the only series that he hasn't farmed out to lesser talent.

I have also stayed with the Woman's Murder Club series. This might be a function of release date as much as anything else. This late spring annual audiobook entry has been a staple of my drives across country to our place in the mountains of southern California. With "11th Hour," I'm pretty sure I have listened to all eleven with the panorama of differing scen

I've read all of the Women's Murder Club books. This one was kind of blah. Lindsay Boxer is pregnant and she and her husband don't communicate well at all. He doesn't tell her about going out with a former colleague. She doesn't ask him questions, just overreacts way too much. It got on my nerves. Regular people would just talk about certain things. Forget pregnancy hormones excuse. Claire is always my clearheaded favorite. She has a way of cutting to the chase. Jackson has turned Yuki out, and ...more

Not the best book I have ever read and it’s not the worst. It’s ok!

I am still using this series to read in-between other books – because it is so easy and quick to read!
This book is like the other 3-4 or so it’s still a bit lovey dovey for me! I’m glad Yuki isn’t in this book as much I don’t know why but I just really don’t like her for some reason! I still think the women in this book are a little cliché and they all have to have these strong men with them and their life seems to revol

There are some spoilers in here for those of you who are not caught up on this series or don't want the who-dunits spoiled.

I enjoyed this installment of the Women's Murder Club series more than the past couple, though there was a few things I had issues with, such as Lindsay's pregnancy. It wasn't mentioned much in the book and I wasn't even sure how pregnant she was, plus the reader never got to see the reactions of the rest of the girls. I would have loved to have known how they

As you might have guessed from the title, this is the 11th book in the Women's Murder Club series. The series focuses on four women who not only are best friends, but also have jobs that complement each other and allow them to work on all aspects of a case.

*Claire Washburn, the Chief Medical Officer

Maxine...Maxine...Maxine, Lindsay CAN'T be that stupid. She's solved eleven big-time cases (more if you count the TV series) totally out of character. Here are a three suggestions:

1) One murder/mystery per novel. Don't split your attention. Spend your time making that one mystery intriguing and interesting instead of creating two lackluster mysteries.

2) Don't force your characters to do things to serve your plot. Yes, these are soapy thrillers, but your characters don't have to act like the

Patterson may need to consider closing the book on the Women's Murder Club series as the incestuous nature of the group is losing credibility in the crime solving genre. Patterson really should brush up police procedure; beginning with how departments handle pregnant officers plus what a doctor would say about a high-risk woman working the hours that Boxer works including high speed chases, shoot outs, and running after perps. This book really lost credibility when Boxer believes her husband of ...more

In the 11th installment of the series there's heads being found and there's also drug dealers be killed. With these two crazy cases Lindsay Boxer has her hands full. Of course she calls in the help of the rest of the Women's Murder Club. Between trying to solve these crimes there's plenty of life drama to keep you reading.

It's another fast paced novel for James Patterson as we are reunited with the foursome of the "Women's Murder Club" in the latest installment "11th Hour". In 11th Hour , we learn that Lindsey Boxer is pregnant with husband Joe's baby , Cindy is engaged to Rich Conklin , Yuki is sleeping with Lindsey's boss Jackson and of course Claire is well Claire. As we most of James's novels there are a couple of twists and two main storylines . The first is that somebody is killing all the scum of the stree ...more

Heaven help me, why do I still read this series? Even worse, I know I'll continue to do so after this one!

There are two concurrent crimes running through this one. There's a rogue cop killing drug dealers. There's a murderer who has killed seven women and left their heads in the garden of a famous actor! Lindsay Boxer investigates both, despite being several months pregnant! Would this even be allowed?

Both storylines are pretty thin. The one about the rogue cop doesn't even come with any surpris

The Women's Murder Club books are getting better again, I think. Less fluff and more interesting mysteries, and by this time in the series, I feel as if I know all the characters very well so enjoy their stories as well. This was one of my favorites in the series.

Linsay will not stop until she gets to the bottom of things. She's a dedicated detective that has little patience for the minor details; give her the information needed and she's out of your hair. Mess with her and you'll wish you haven't.

As a police officer, your day is full of trying to provide a resolution to people constantly. As a detective, you're trying to find resolutions that will solve the case and bring people some piece of mind. This case or cases, are too heinous to believe. Someon

Audiobook review:
I’ve never actually listened to audiobooks before this so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to actually be able to pay attention. I’m happy to say I was able to follow this story pretty easily!
Drug dealers are being murdered in San Francisco. The cops think it’s one of their own, finally gone off the rails and taking justice into their own hands. At the same time two heads end up on the porch of a celebrity’s home. A pregnant Lindsey Boxer is on both cases.

This series is my favorite one by Patterson. I just like the interplay between the four women who make up the club. I also think the characters read realisticly. Lt Lindsey Boxer finds herself on two different cases that are grabbing huge headlines in San Francisco ... all while being pregnant.

The first case is a series of murders in which someone is clearly going after the city's drug dealers. The press has labeled the murdered Revenge, and both the Homicide and Narcotic squads are a sign to ge

am definitely a James Patterson fan, but for some reason this book felt a little disjointed for me and part of the book felt too rushed with not enough information.

The book was almost solely about Lindsay and not much on Yuki, Cindy or Claire. I believe that when the four of them get together, the are unstoppable and who doesn't love powerful women fighting for what they believe in.

With two high profile cases on the burner and Lindsay being pregnant, this book heats up fast. There is someone out

I've noticed a disturbing trend lately, at least with the fiction I've been reading: the stories in long-running series are getting worse instead of better. Much worse. The characters are developing in reverse, becoming increasingly less intelligent, and the stories are becoming less complex. It's like the writers are getting lazy, and have forgot what made these stories interesting enough to keep the fans coming back.

Maybe because capable co-author Maxine Paetro once again has his back, this latest in Patterson's Women's Murder Club series carries on the tradition in fine fettle. It's always a treat to watch the interaction among the women - medical examiner Claire, district attorney Yuki, newspaper reporter Cindy and the "star" of the show, Lindsay the detective. It's a somewhat improbable group, as well as very PC as the foursome includes both a Black and an oriental woman.

This book centers on unearthing
For some reason as I read/listened to this one it seemed like the characters weren’t the ones that we have gotten to know, none of them seemed to act how they did in the past. Lindsay, who was so reluctant to get married, seemed to only refer to Joe as “my husband”, which seemed odd to me. So did her reaction to what may or may not have happened with Joe. Usually Lindsay is reasonable, but her reaction wasn’t. She didn’t give Joe a chance to talk at all. I also hated how Cindy acted. She was aft ...more

11th Hour by James Patterson is another winner from old faithful Patterson. This is another tale with the women's murder club. This story starts out with a bang, literally as a drug dealer is assassinated in a school rest room. Next the police get a 911 call of their dead and gives the address. When police get there they find 2 heads arranged with floral garlands. Back at headquarters lieutenant Brady forms a committee for the assassin named Revenge and reveals they believe he is a cop.

Patterson is one of my favorite author's but The 11th Hour was no up to his usual standard. While he delivered his usual page turning plot, the relationship between Lindsay Boxer and Joe did not ring true. Most of Boxer's behavior was in character, however, Joe's reaction and lack of action regarding Lindsay's mistrust was not believable--out of character--and just plain annoying. I found Joe's lack of persistence with settling his pregnant wife's mistrust to be irritating rather than intriguing ...more

Probably a 3.5. There are two series of murders assigned to Lindsay Boxer: a vigilante killing drug dealers, and two skulls found at the home of a famous movie star. A disgruntled cop is suspected in the former killings and even though the movie star does not live there, he has always been a suspect in the mysterious disappearance of his wife. The Women's Murder Club is back in action although the drama between a pregnant Lindsay and her husband is absolutely pathetic.
If it weren’t for the extreme sympathetic characters, I wouldn’t read this series, because in all honesty, the plot-lines aren’t that excellent.
In the 11th Hour, Lindsay and her squad of the southern district of the SFPD face a vigilante who kills drug-dealers with stolen guns from the police evidence room. There’s no doubt this vigilante is a cop, but who. When their new Lieutenant (Brady, boyfriend of Yuki), suspects Warren Jacobi, Lindsay and Conklin are totally unconvinced but orders are ord
