Mega-bestseller Patterson teams up with journalist/novelist Paetro for a rousing fourth installment of the Women's Murder Club series. This time, bright, tough SFPD Lt. Lindsay Boxer is battling police brutality charges while chasing down a clan of murderers. When a botched police arrest of two gun-toting minors expands from a shaky preliminary hearing to what promises to be a nerve-rattling jury trial of Lindsay, she flees the pre-trial media frenzy for the serene haven of sister Cat's house in Half Moon Bay. But instead of finding relaxation and romance with her Homeland Security beau, Lindsay becomes embroiled in the ruthless crimes of a troika of killers who've been slashing and flogging victims all over town. With surprisingly little aid from the Murder Club, Lindsay performs her detective handiwork (and steps on the toes of Half Moon's police chief). As more bodies surface, sketchy suspects like a smitten grease monkey and a slimy porn star emerge, then the murderous threesome set their sights on Lindsay. Back in San Francisco, Lindsay is acquitted; she then rushes back to Half Moon Bay to apprehend the elusive villains and put to rest her unresolved first homicide case as well. Heroic super-sleuthing, a steadily gripping plot line and 146 snappy chapters add up to suspense fiction euphoria for Patterson's legion of fans. (One-day laydown May 2)

After the explosive events of the third entry in the Women's Murder Club series, 3rd Degree (2004), which claimed the life of one of the members, it's understandable that the follow-up might be a bit of a letdown. But only a little. Patterson's characteristic brutal murders and elusive killers are present, keeping the stakes high. Lindsay Boxer, the police lieutenant who brought the club together, is taking some serious heat in this installment. After a car chase goes wrong, Lindsay is forced to shoot two killers after they wound her and her partner. The firefight leaves a 15-year-old girl dead and her 13-year-old brother paralyzed, making way for a police brutality lawsuit. Lindsay hides out in her sister's suburban house, where she hopes to escape the media circus surrounding her trial. But someone has been killing married couples in the upscale community, and the method greatly resembles a case from early in Lindsay's career, one that she was never able to close the book on. Even though the Women's Murder Club itself is consigned to the background, Lindsay's trial and the murders keep the pages turning. Kristine Huntley

I also recommend 'The Quest' by George Kostantinos. ENJOY.
In 4TH OF JULY, Lindsay is accused of police brutality and excessive force, causing her to be put on administrative leave while the trial is on going. She is also recovering from being shot by these minors who were pursued for horrendous murders. Instead of staying in San Francisco and being hounded by the media, Lindsay housesits for her sister in Half Moon Bay and baby-sits her pot-bellied pig.
Instead of resting and relaxing, she soon discovers a series of murders that don't seem to have any connection except for the murderer's signature. Lindsay plunges headfirst into helping the local law enforcement solve these murders, while preparing for her upcoming trial. She gets a bit too close to solving the crime and begins to endure threats, such as being attacked with semi-automatic fire while sleeping.
Characters are always Patterson's strong suit and this is no exception. The villains' identities are not hard to figure out, but that doesn't detour from the enjoyment of this book. The entire ensemble is fun - from the slimy owner of a porn shop who just happens to be an ex-porn star, to the local mechanic who is smitten with Lindsay, to the Head of a Orphanage and her daughter who become good friends with Lindsay, to a local attorney who literally runs over Lindsay while she's walking her dog, to the police chief who is not happy with Lindsay for butting into his investigation, to Yuki - Lindsay's new attorney.
The story is a bit on the predictable side; well at least the outcome is predictable.Read more ›
