Just What The Fans Want

Detective Lindsay Boxer just landed the lead of her career in the disappearance case of Michael Campion, the teenage son of California's former governor. Not only has she found a suspect, but she has the murder confession to boot. Just when everything falls into place the suspect recants the confession throwing the trial into a downward spiral. Meanwhile, two arsonists are preying on wealthy rich couples and Lindsay and her partner, Rich Conklin, can't seem to keep ahead of these sadistic murderers on the loose. Once again Lindsay Boxer leans on her cohorts in the Women's Murder Club to try and save the day.

This seventh installment of James Patterson's bestselling Women's Murder Club series gives fans just what they want: more mystery, more murder, more romance, and thankfully a better story than The 6th Target. Lindsay, Claire, Cindy, and Yuki are as engaging as ever and Patterson and Paetro do a great job of giving each character a fair share of the story. This series seems to be developing a pattern of following multiple cases with each new offering and this time it really works. Both cases are interesting throughout and there's even a great little twist in the end that I never saw coming.

The only thing not working for me in this series is the relationship turmoil Lindsay continually finds herself in. I do realize these scenes were not necessarily written for my demographic, and I suspect Lindsay's romantic entanglements are exactly why millions of other readers keep coming back to this series. However, for me the mystery and fast paced storytelling are all I need and are enough to bring me back for more.
