From AudioFile

San Francisco PD Detective Lindsay Boxer is suspicious about unexpected deaths at a local hospital--especially after the mother of one of her friends inexplicably succumbs. The Women's Murder Club is soon involved in finding the person responsible--and at risk to themselves. Carolyn McCormack's performance is superb. Her ability to capture the essence of each of the main characters is impressive; her skill at fleshing out even minor characters is rare. Her spirit, enthusiasm, and emotional involvement help the novel, which has its predictable moments. Overall, McCormack's ability to keep each moment fresh and alive makes this program a real treat for the listener. M.A.M.

Format: Paperback
THE 5TH HORSEMAN is a terrific suspense chiller that starts off at hyperspeed with Keiko's collapse and subsequent death and picks up speed as beleaguered cop Lindsay struggles to stop two apparent serial killers. The story line is action packed as is the trademark of the series (and any work including collaborations that James Paterson writes) while the female members of the Women's Murder Club retain their individual personalities that make them seem genuine even while being super crime stoppers. Also, if you missed reading TINO GEORGIOU'S masterpiece--THE FATES, go and read it.

I've always been hooked on James Patterson's writing style. The way he draws his readers immediately into the story, then plunges on with all kinds of exciting twists and turns is nothing short of inspired. I can just picture the Muse sitting on his shoulder as he writes.
But when he teamed with Maxine Paetro for The Fourth of July, I found another talented author I respect highly. I think she added a distinct new flavor to the FOURTH OF JULY--a flavor that blended to perfection--and I stand by that opinion with this book. This is my kind of book. And Patterson is my kind of guy! Paetro, my kind of woman!
I, personally, think this clever collaboration is the best thing to come along since the mating of 'peanut butter and chocolate,' to be a bit corny. They enhance each other's writing, bringing out the best in each other. I also know that each can stand alone, and I would love to see Paetro write a thriller of her own ... or even a great love story. I know she's written some excellent books in the past and look forward to more in the future!
THE FIFTH HORSEMAN continues with the Women's Murder Club, with Lindsay and her pals proving up to the task of solving the mysterious deaths occurring in a San Francisco Hospital. Wow--what a wild journey! The twists and turns kept me guessing to the very end.
And, as much as I would like to see Paetro write a mystery/thriller of her own, I hope these two pair again for many more books. -- Go, team.

While I've always been a fan of the Alex Cross series (and have read all of those), I wanted even more to read THE 5th Horseman. Keiko is the mother of the newest member of The Women's Murder club. And why not? This is a terrific suspense thriller with the usual twists and turns that will keep you riveted to the page. Action packed and well paced, you can't go wrong with this one. If you enjoy fast-paced, short-chapter books that really fly like McCrae's "KATZENJAMMER" or perhaps some of Elmore Leonard's works (GET SHORTY), then you'll enjoy THE 5TH HORSEMAN as well.

When it comes to talking about actress Carolyn McCormick one hardly knows where to begin. She's made her mark in films and appeared on TV as Dr. Olivit on Law and Order for some 12 years. Her Broadway credits include The Dinner Party and Private Lives. Many will remember her outstanding reading of James Patterson's 4th of July, and she delivers one more stellar narration of The 5th Horseman.
With this story there's a new member of The Women's Murder Club - Yuki Castellano, an attorney. She and her mother, Keiko, are out enjoying a walk when Keiko is suddenly taken ill. She's rushed to the San Francisco Medical Center. Yuki is told that her mother will be fine. Not so. She dies.
When Yuki and Lindsay Boxer begin looking into this death that has mystified the doctors, they find other frightening cases - patients who have been declared healthy, ready to go home never leave. They suddenly die. Could all of these fatalities be bizarre coincidences or is there some unknown evil at work? Perhaps not evil maybe just gross neglect as the Medical Center has been named in a lawsuit.
Combined with the unexplained deaths in what is supposed to be a place of healing is a serial killer who leaves his victims in cars.
The courtroom scenes in The 5th Horseman are explosive and real. Once you turn it on, you can't stop listening - enjoy!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Patterson and Paetro gave it away on the dust jacket blurb, "The Women's Murder Club faces an unspeakable horror in an irresistible hospital and courtroom thriller ...". The problem is, they weren't talking about one novel being two things at once. They were talking about two separate novellas that had nothing to do with one another being tossed into a blender and combined into a single novel.

The bad news first! The first story is a typical and seriously overused hospital plot - a series of inexplicable hospital deaths that ultimately and not particularly surprisingly come down to the runaway serial murderer roaming the halls of a creepy hospital. The other is an uninspired police procedural about the apprehension of a kinky serial killer who liked to kill young girls and dress them up a little after they were already dead.

The good news is that, unlike "You've Been Warned" which was a complete waste of even the energy needed to turn the pages, the writing in "The 5th Horseman" manages to be snappy, entertaining and actually quite compelling. The novel is diverting and enjoyable despite its obvious shortcomings. At the same time as I was aware of the weaknesses in the plot's originality, I was definitely hooked and unwilling to put the book down and let it go. I can't help but admit that's a good thing!

Despite the fact that Patterson's reputation as a novelist is hanging by the thinnest of threads, I recommend "The 5th Horseman" as a thoroughly enjoyable, if entirely forgettable piece of literary brain candy. Take it on the plane or to the beach by all means.
