About the Author
James B. Patterson (born March 22, 1947) is an award-winning American author. Formerly an advertising executive for J. W. Thompson in the early 1990s, Patterson came up with the slogan "Toys R Us Kid". Shortly after his success with Along Came A Spider he retired from the firm and devoted his time to writing. The novels featuring his character, Alex Cross, a black forensic psychologist formerly of the Washington, D.C. Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation, now working as a private psychologist and government consultant, are the most popular books among Patterson readers. James Patterson has been criticized by Stephen King, who called Patterson's books "dopey thrillers". Patterson shrugged off the comments, stating that he wants to be the "thrillingest thriller writer of all time". James Patterson has also been put as one of Forbes magazine's top 100 celebrities. --This text refers to the Preloaded Digital Audio Player edition.
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.

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.
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!
