I’m struggling lately to give any of Patterson’s books more than 3.5 stars. His books are like Writing 101, churned out to the tune of the same template over and over. I’ve been a fan since I was a teenager and discovered Along Came A Spider though, so I’m really reluctant to throw the towel in completely with either Alex Cross or Women’s Murder Club. I’ve given up on everything else that is thrown out with his name attached, but I’ve hung in there with these two series. I’m just not s ...more
Opening Hook: A pretty standard for the genre death scene
Main Characters: TONE IT THE FUCK DOWN
Plot Twisty-ness: B for Beffort.
I have read every single one of the books in this series. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Even the novellas. You can find all of my reviews of them here, if you’re so inclined to watch my descent into pure, unadulterated hatred. And part of my bookish New Years resolution was to not read a single Patterson nov ...more

All that sounds interesting enough, but this book was just meh to me.
The arrogant, sexist men in this series just seem to be reiterations of the same foul character with different names and physical descriptions (sometimes not even that).
Plus, I am not a lawyer - not even close, but even I could see throug ...more

I just love the Women’s Murder Club series so much! From the first book to this one it’s consistently been exciting and fun to read. I’ve always been a really big James Patterson fan. The chapters of his books are super short and I simply fly through the pages. Although a few of his books have been hit or miss, this series is my favorite. If you’ve never read a James Patterson book, I recommend reading this series. You won’t be disappointed!
My quick and simple overall: intriguing and fast-paced.
Initially I liked Yuki's case, liked how Yuki was fighting for something that doesn't happen very often. Sadly Yuki's luck on cases hasn't been good lately and this time around it things were screwed up. I loved how Yuki pursued things when she realized things weren't what they seemed and loved how she finished things up.
Sadly Yuki's work life wasn't the only thing in flux. I was glad when finally Yuki got to the bottom of things, even as I hated to lear ...more
