I didn't hate this as much as I have the last few.
The dialogue was still shit, there were too many rushed storylines and the prose were probably written by Patterson's great grandson or something - but it was better than the last one.
I've read a few of these in quick turnaround, and I have to say I'm kind of exhausted by the sheer number of things that happen. Would it be too much to ask for just one case that gets solved and doesn't involve all of these women having huge life ...more
Once again an attack, reportedly by cops, had occurred – people were being murdered and the police department was in panic mode. Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner Detective Richie Conklin were front and foremost in the investigation and they had no idea where to start. These people, whether they were rogue cops or civilians masquerading as cops – they left no clues. No prints, nothing on CCTV, not even the shells from shots fired were left behind.
Lindsay and her three close friends, ...more
My quick and simple overall: not my favorite of the series but still entertaining. The ending was pretty strong.
I give this book 3 and a half stars and the only reason I added the extra half is because I have always liked this series. This book in the Women's Murder Club series was alright but it wasn't that great. It was fast but it was tied up in a little bow at the end and it just sets us up to begin the next book in the series. I think it could have been much better. It didn't give you a chance to guess what was going on. It doesn't seem like there was much thought put into this. I hope ...more
Yuki's new job and the case she took felt wrong on so many levels. I would think even with the "Chinese wall" that there would be a clear conflict of interest if Yuki is suing the police and the city and her husband is a cop. If she loses, she is open to a major malpractice suit. It would be very difficult to prove that she did n ...more
The Woman's Murder Club continues to entertain with 14th Deadly Sin!
Three armed men wearing latex maskes, gloves, start by robbing check cashing stores. They call each other One, Two, and Three. They're careful, organized. And they all wear windbreakers and hats labeled NYPD.
At first, they haven't hurt anyone but that doesn't last long. It starts when they
Kill a man who wouldn't open the safe. The next hit is a little, family owned store called Maya De Perez. Maya Perez, pregnant and having ju ...more
Secondly, there was way too much going on. It's as if Patterson/Paetro had some ideas for this book and couldn't decide on one so they wrote them all.
And last, but certainly not least, the ending. What in the world?? When you've written a mediocre book, in which the read ...more
When Lindsay and Rich ar ...more
A gang dressed in SFPD jackets wearing masks are going around robbing stores, drug dealers and have escalated to murder leaving no forensic evidence behind. Boxer and her partner Conklin are tasked to work with Robbery division to find the culprits. There are no witnesses and very little to work with.
While this is going on Lindsay's husband Joe gets fired from hi ...more
I started listening to this audiobook in the car right before we left for Canada a couple weeks ago and I ended up nixing it about 3 discs into it. The series is just not what it used to be. It was just kind of boring and I found myself drifting off thinking of other things. I just lost interest in it; pretty much the same way I have with the rest of his books.

Women’s Murder Club series
Thoughts so far…
I am a tad over half-way through the 14th book in the WMC series and as has been the case with the last ten books, I am having a hard time with a few items.
Nine months has passed between 12th of Never & 14th Deadly Sin. 9 months. We know this because baby Julie is nine months old. In that time a lot has happened:
Baby Julie had a medical crisis but is all fine and ...more
I've read this series from the very beginning, back when Jill was still the ADA in the club, and it was like a breath of fresh air in the crime/murder mystery department. Quick paced action, brutal murders, and equal looks at the world of law, police, crime scene, and the media all while weighing the drama down with the love and respect of 4 wonderfully powerful women knee deep in a "man's world". Even when Yuki came into the series I was still drawn ...more
I really enjoy the Women's Murder Club series. This was another great case with Lindsay and the gang all working on important things.
Our usual main characters are back and as good as ever.
That ending though. Cliffhanger much?
Will be interested to see how things play out in he next one.
