The sensational killings that have rocked San Francisco appear to be unrelated except in their brutality. But detective Lindsay Boxer senses there's some thread connecting them all. She calls her friends in the Women's Murder Club together to see if they can discover what it is. Surely some clue has been overlooked by their bosses and male colleagues.
Working with Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas, Assistant District Attorney Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay discovers that there is indeed a link. The victims were of different ages, lived in different locations, and were killed with different weapons. But each had a close relative in a particular profession, a profession that sends a chill through Lindsay's heart.
The partners in the Women's Murder Club realize that this killer is after something unspeakable, something deeper than revenge, and that the next target could be one of them. They deduce where the killer is likely to strike next and bait a trap that can't be resisted. But if their calculation is wrong, the consequences will be lethal. And there will be no second chance....Continua
Your usual Patterson and his Women's Murder Club. Fast-paced, several stereotypes (about women, about men, about men&women relationships) but overall entertaining.

This book, like the one in the series before it, is structured oddly to me, where you think you have things building up to a climax in the storyline, but then it isn't. I don't really care for that style because while I think the author means it as a 'twist', I'm ready to be done with the book and then it goes on and on way after that. These are OK books though. Nothing you'll really remember down the road but interesting enough for the time you are reading them....Continua
2nd in the series of James Patterson Women's Murder Club books. The book follows the women as they attempt to solve a racially motivated series of murders. Very interesting and tense. As always the murderer is never who you think it is...
