Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first James Patterson novel. It will, in all likelyhood, be my last.
I expected a breezy, exciting thriller with a fun female detective protagonist. What I got was an utterly predictable, flacid story speckled with 'surprises' that I had spotted hundreds of pages before. Mr. Patterson seems more interested in trying to pull the rug out from under his readers than in trying to develop characters or tell a compelling story.
The protagonist, a homocide detective for the San Francisco PD is supposed to be smart and hardworking. So are the other members of her "Women's Murder Club." There is a sort of "Sisters are Doing it for Themselves" bravura that Mr. Patterson tries to tap into that unfortunately comes across as if he'd been watching too many episodes of Moonlighting and Remington Steel, with a pinch of 9 to 5 thrown in. Very early eighties. The four women who make up the 'club'--which is a widly unethical mix of law enforcement, legal and press--are essentially indistinguishable, except for the African-American medical examiner, who occasionally sprinkles her dialogue with sentences ending in 'Honey.' Then there's the kinky writer who comes across like a two-dimensional character out of de Sade--I found myself wondering if Patterson was describing himself, which I at least had fun imagining.
The plot is full of holes. My favorite turns on one of the major reversals--Patterson sells you on the idea that only one character could have misdirected the investigation in a particular way. He then spends eighty pages or so driving that point home, until the NEXT reversal, at which point the misdirection is totally forgotten--at least by Mr. Patterson. I found myself wondering what the heck was going on.

By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 5 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read a few Patterson books before and find that he's a good writer. This is the first book of a series that feature a female inspector (Lindsay Boxer) in San Francisco. We follow her as she tries to figure out who is behind the murders of newlyweds. As the story evolves, Boxer forms a "detective club" with her talented girlfriends (a medical examiner, an assistant DA and a crime journalist). Along the way, Boxer faces a life threatening disease and falls in love with her new partner. It's a good book but, like my notes here, it's kind of a "by the number" book. It does a good job but it's not enthralling. It seems like too much of the book is focused on Boxer's inner thoughts about herself, health, love life, etc. That said, the ending surprised me (don't want to spoil it) - it was unexpected.... So, I give it 3 out of 5 stars (good).

thoroughly enjoyable, a tad predictable, but a really fun read. Worth the Costco price but not full pop.
