James Patterson has joined up with Maxine Paetro in this 4th in the Women's Murder Club series and I'm pleased to say I enjoyed this much better than the last one which was written with Andrew Gross.
Although I would have like to have seen more input from the other members of the club (this one was all about Lt Lindsay Boxer) it was still a cracking book, fast paced, kept you guessing until the end and with an unexpected killer I hadn't foreseen it was certainly the traditional James Patterson s

The 4th book in the Women's murder club by Maxine Paetro and probably the best so far.
Usual James Patterson proven formula, fast paced, short chapters etc.
If this isn't the last James Patterson book I read, I invite you to punch me in the face.

I can't take these books seriously. There is no depth whatsoever to the characters, and after four books, I would expect to have more familiarity with them. Lindsay's romantic "relationships" are a joke. Dinner and sex does not = love and a lasting commitment.

The best thing that can be said about this book is that it reads very quickly and that you don't have to pause to look up any words ou don't know. It

James Patterson's books are either really good or just average and this was one of the really good ones. Short, choppy chapters made it fast reading and the thrilling story line made it a page turner that was impossible to put down. The identity of the murderers came completely from left field. I had not even considered two of them as possibilities. Just the way it should be in a competently written mystery thriller. I have not read any of the earlier Women's Murder Club series but it did not ma ...more

Another excellent instalment of the Woman's Murder Club series by Maxine Paetro.* I listened to this Audible audio book many years ago and all that I remembered was that I really, really liked it! Now I remember why! Fast paced and exciting the whole way through. And the revelation at the end was quite shocking and took me completely by surprise! What a great book! I have no reservations in recommending not only this book, but the entire Woman's Murder Club series! One of my all time favorite se ...more

I love James Patterson. His style of writing is fun and easy to read. And the Women's Murder Club is great! That said, this book slugged in a few places. Lindsey's trial felt a bit bogged down, and the extra murder investigation didn't get as much of the story as it needed to build suspense.
But, it's still a good addition to the series and worth reading.

This book in the Women's Murder Club series was very different from the first 3 books in the series. In this book, Lindsey is put on administrative leave during a trial while she is being investigated for shooting her police gun at two children. The charges are found to be bogus and Lindsey is found to be innocent (no shock there). What makes this book different is that we learn about Lindsey in her free time. In the previous books, besides working A LOT, she dates, cooks amazing meals, works ou ...more

Wow, didn't see that one coming. As usual, this series has got me picking up the next book in anticipation. The last book we lost one girl, this book, we seem to have adopted another in the women's murder club. Not all the girls assist Lindsay in this brutal crime but she holds her own. Her and her partner are shot down, but it didn't stop either of them from solving the crime after recovery. Lindsay is then put on trial and I have to say, I LOVED IT. One of the better novels of the women's murd ...more

Not my favorite Women's Murder Club novel but definitely not the worst. Overall decent. The story was divided into 2 plots. The first plot being Lindsay's trial and the second being a murder case. I didn't like the constant back and forth between the trial and the case since there wasn't a connection between the two. I found that both plots wrapped up very quickly and I would have liked to know more about the murderers and their reasons for doing what they did.

Maxine Paetro picks up the series from Andrew Gross. She introduces a new character, Yuki Castellano, who I think might end up joining the Club.

The bulk of this book features Lindsay on trial for a wrongful death suit. The courtroom stuff was about as good as in an episode of Law & Order, which is to say it was obviously dramatized but sufficiently convincing to me.

There was the obligatory serial killer plot thrown in, with a decent twist ending. I'm not great at guessing who the killers are

No importa que el coescritor sea Andrew Gloss o Maxine Paetro, la serie es muy entretenida, el ritmo de la historia no decae en ningún momento, y la lectura es rápida y ágil. Es una pena que hayan dejado de traducir esta serie a español, así que seguiré leyendo en portugués, a ver qué tal se me da.
Es esta historia Lindsay Boxer es la protagonista indiscutible, mucho más que en las anteriores entregas.

This book was not nearly the Cheesefest that the previous three were. I guess I have Maxine Paetro to blame/thank for that.

I don't know, I'm so conflicted!

This series is my easy, cheesy, mindless escape-from-sitting-at-a-desk-at-work series. Do I like that this was a little more of a legit novel? Or am I sad that my cheese has been taken away?

The lack of cheese is not the only way in which 4th of July is different from it's predecessors. Instead of being a straight police procedural following t

I just breezed right through this novel. The 4th book in tbr Women's Club series starts off with a bang. It dives right into drama and suspense that will keep you turning pages late into the night to see what's going to happen. With plot twists that will almost have your head spinning this book was a solid 4 stars for me. Can't wait to read the next book.

This was an interesting read. I really love Lindsay Boxer. She is a really great character to read about. I also really like her friends. I just thought the story was there. I really enjoyed this read. I was really happy with the Joe scenes. I think listening to the audiobook has give the characters more depth, and I really enjoyed how the narrators told the story. As always, there is crime, and this time I was a bit more disturbed than the other times. I cannot wait to see what happens next to ...more

I must say that this book didn't impress me as the other 3. The suspense left after the court trial. This book made Lindsay appear sometimes incompetent instead of a seasoned police officer.

There was a lot of hum drum in between the stories that took place in two different cities but were connected. By the time the killer or killers was identified, I was so happy to be almost through with the story.

Let's hope the next book in the series is much better.

I am looking for something mindless, something to take my thoughts away from ISIS and Ebola. A little mayhem. Patterson has been a better than expected tonic in the past so I think I will try that well again.

It dives right in. No leisurely lead in. Electrocuted body in the bathtub. Alright. Into the grime and gore. I am wondering if the name of the detective will be the only thing that will tell me she is a woman. I am hoping for a realistic woman protagonist. In the end I do not feel rewarded.

Lindsay Boxer is on the trail of a killer with her one of her ex-partners when the unthinkable happens... while chasing down a suspect's car, it crashes. When they go to help, they find two pre-teen kids in the front seat. But as they try to get them out of the car, both kids pull guns and shoot the two cops. Lindsay fires back, killing one and paralyzing the other from the neck down before passing out herself due to her injuries. While on forced leave from the SFPD during her trial, she takes a ...more

Nice to see Lindsay again. Welcome Yuki Castellano. Also glad Lindsay was able to solve her Cold Case. Hope Lindsay and Joe get married.

I think I'll always enjoy James Patterson's novels because they are entertaining, they have short chapters, therefore they are easy to read, they are action-packed and the cases Lindsay and her friends deal with are quite interesting. The only thing that bothers me now and then when reading a mystery book written by James Patterson is the silly writing style. I find myself laughing sometimes at Lindsay's thoughts and the conversations she has with her female friends. I'm going to give this book ...more

As always the Women Murder's Club gives me the satisfaction of fast-paced and quick read. I like the uncompleted nature of this series, mostly. Admittedly, I wish the authors would dig a little deeper into the characterization, but alas, we have to do with what we got and it's not bad.
Here the premise is of a rather personal nature, as Lindsay Boxer goes on trial for killing a teenager and maiming her even younger brother, when, in reality, it's the 2 teenagers who shoot at Det. Warren Jacobi a

Cheesy? Yes! Well written? Not exactly. Entertaining as hell? Absolutely! I admit...I'm hooked on these books. James Patterson is no literary genius, but he can sure throw together compelling, gripping crime thrillers. This was the best book in this series so far! Thoroughly entertaining!

4th of July by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is the 4th book in the Women's Murder Club mystery series. Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is sued after shooting two teenagers in self-defence and while on leave investigates recent homicides linked to a cold case of hers from the past. Another fast paced book that you cannot put down. This time Lindsay is on her own for most of the investigation but comes out on top in the end.

In this book we are once again transported in to the dramatic life of Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer. This time around she is faced with a battle for her reputation as a cop and an unknown predator who doesn't like how close Lindsay is getting to the truth.

This is the 4th book in the Woman's Murder club Series but it has not lost its allure or readability. I love the way that it always keeps you guessing exactly who did what right up till the very last page. The most obvious choice is not always th

Welcome to Half Moon Bay where not all goes as planned. gruesome killings have Lieutenant Lindsey Boxer on the case Coming to the resort, for rest she is instead caught up in the investigation, and of course in the line of fire. As always James Patterson delivers a fun adventure that feels like a quick read because once you begin it is hard to put down.

This is all about Boxer and her decision to go on a call with her partner after having a drink over lunch. Through all of the commotion that transpires, a teen ends up dead and one paralyzed. During her questioning, she forgets to mention the drink and from there her freedom hangs in the balance.

An okay read.
