"3rd Degree" by James Patterson is the third book in the Women's Murder Club series. Having read the previous two I was looking forward to this one.
Unfortunately I've ended up skipping chapters just so I didn't have to record it as unfinished. I found it very disappointing, the plot within the storyline was boring and the female characters just weren't the same - Claire especially just wasn't her normal bubbly strong self. I've read other readers reviews and it still seems to have a good followi

This book was all cheese.

The story line was cheese.

The dialogue was cheese.

And the romance was mega cheese.

But, let's face it: most of us aren't reading these novels for the literary brilliance.

The Women's Murder Club series is my favourite to read of Patterson's. They are fast and entertaining...yes, including all the cheese.

I like to make a game out of taking a shot every time one of the female characters says something no women would say to another women, even if they are best friends. Seri

Another excellent installment of Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson and Andrew Gross.
Enjoyed it just as much as the first time I listened to it on Audible audio book. Narrator Carolyn McCormick is pretty good, too.
Very sad ending, though.

James Patterson is basically running a mystery novel factory, and it shows in this book. The novel goes through the motions acceptably enough--there are clues and ratcheting tension and figures come back from the past and deaths of people close to the protagonist and a love interest. But the entire thing feels rather formulaic and thin.

Somehow, despite shocking revelations and stunning returns from the dead, you're never quite shocked or stunned. There isn't enough of an emotional connection est
3rd degree by James Patterson and just wow...... It was amazing. This is the third book in the women’s murder club ,I loved the first one it was amazing
The second book, while I loved I didn’t really get into it as much as the first and then there was this one it was shocking. Not in a bad way in a good way. It had me so shocked James Patterson books can do that to you. They are really quick reads and have so many twists and turns leaving you wanting to read more.

Al igual que sucede en las dos entregas anteriores, la protagonista indiscutible y el personaje que más se desarrolla es el de Lindsay Boxer, teniente de la Policía de San Francisco, y como coprotagonistas tenemos a sus amigas, con las que forma el Club de las mujeres contra el crimen.
De nuevo, los capítulos son cortos, lo que hace la lectura muy rápida. La forma de escribir de Patterson es sencilla y ágil.
Continuaré leyendo el Club, me están gustando mucho, mucho.

It's great to be able to read these Women Murder Club books in a row. I enjoy them for their pace and for having just enough content to hook me into the plot. Admittedly, the story-lines in these books aren't elaborately plotted, but they give the reader enough information to be interested. Same goes for the characterization; sometimes you wish the authors would delve a little deeper. Take Jill for instance, the ADA, and friend to Lindsay, Claire and Cindy; I wish I would have known a better. I ...more
