The 9th Judgment
A young mother and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down while returning to their car in the garage of a shopping mall. There are no witnesses, and Detective Lindsay Boxer is left with only one shred of evidence: a cryptic message scrawled across the windshield in bloodred lipstick.

You're balls hit the toilet water, don't they Jordan Knight?!
Anyway, this series has been a metaphorical roller coaster of literary quality. The first 3 were decent, but it's been steep ups and downs ever since. And by that I mean, basically they all suc ...more
As with all Patterson novels the book moves at a very brisk pace with short, choppy chapters each leading straight into the next. I think this is the main reason I read his books. They are ideal reading for a tired brain - not much concentration needed but plenty of action ...more
Lindsay Boxer and her team respond to a gruesome murder – someone is killing young mothers and their children and leaving a horrific “WCF” message behind in the woman’s lipstick. It takes Boxer and her team most of ...more
Once again author and narrator pair up
together creating another breathtaking, nail biting, thriller that's not to be missed!
Maxine Paetro is an old hand at blending several story lines together creating even higher levels of suspense and anticipation throughout the story while Carolyn McCormick deftly accentuates each character's individual personality p ...more
there wasn't even anything INTERESTING in it. and it made NO SENSE. clues? a mystery? what? i'm kind of still confused. at least they used a map when plotting the chase scenes this time.
so glad i waited for this at the library. ugh. i still miss jill. the e ...more

This has to be one of the toughest cases yet for the Women's Murder Club - a deranged killer is targeting women and children all over San Francisco, and the bodies are piling up. Meanwhile, a string of jewel thef ...more
You know from the get go who the bad guy is and boy do you want the cops to get him. He's sick and twisted and ... Ugh he was just bad.
There there was the second case in the story that you couldn't get a read on until it was coming to an end and you were almost glad to see it end the way it did.
Very very good 9th book in a series. ...more
Getting better…… I hope!
I much preferred this one I love ‘Hello Kitty’ what a brilliant character. Unlike the last 2/3 books in the series this one got back to the murders, thrills and police work rather than sex and love struck Lyndsey!
These are still very fast reads with short and snappy chapters which means these books are only taking me a day or two to read. This book was quite a page turner and I didn’t really want to know how this one was going to end! Cindy and Yuki didn’t make t ...more
1. The lipstick killer. I like intelligence, even in serial killers. The harder they are to catch and figure out, the more difficult it is for the police to outsmart him, the more exciting it is for me because I become increasingly frustrated to get him caught. Dumb criminals invoke a 'meh' reaction from me because unless they ...more

I can call you James right, after all your books I have read, I feel we are on a first name basis. Now James, you know I love you, but lets talk about your latest novel, The 9th Judgment. For the first time I have had to put down one of your books and decide not to finish it. I know this is a first for us, so I need you to understand. James, you murdered an infant and sweetie, I just cannot seem to handle that sort of storyline. My youngest child is close in age to the infa ...more
Okay this was probably the hardest book for me to read. I really couldn't even rate this. I wanted to hate every part of it, i mean really, children are killed in this book. It was very hard for me to read, and i was glad when it was over. I really thought the guy was going to go after Claire when she was on tv and told people to carry a gun, it would have shown the city that even she isn't safe, but it's whatever. I would skip this one. ...more
The story kept my interest, though I was a bit disappointed and confused at the ending. Disappointed that they didn't seem to finish some of the story lines. It could be just me, but I like things wrapped up in little bows by the end of the book, and the book didn't do that for me (though I understand that the main character's storylin ...more

Second crime is much more disturbing - an average Joe is killing moms and their babies, with one thought - for Kenny. He hates his own family and also demands two million dollars in cash to stop the killing spree.

The 9th Judgment is a police procedural that gives readers a glimpse into the minds of the criminals, as well as into their home lives. There were two storylines and the chapters jumped back and forth between the two, although the chapters were so short it was easy to follow. My primary complaint was with the sex scenes, which felt a wee bit forced and unrealistic. Bottom line: I found the book to be a quick read that didn’t require me to think too much! 😉
