The 8th Confession

Oh, for the murder club of yesteryear...

I loved the first few books of the murder club, and on book 8, I'm slowly getting annoyed. The basic premise was that the women (a reporter, a medical examiner, a police detective, etc) get together over drinks, share information and solve a case. It was fun, it was a girl's night gone weird. I loved it.

As the books have progressed it is less about the girls getting together and more about the detective. I miss the heavy on the girls night stuff. It's missing that, in my opinion.

The book by itself is good, the story a bit "eh" but it was a quick beach type of read. Having read this entire series as they've done out, I can't help but be disappointed though. I miss the Murder Club of old.

I hope book 9 gets us back to that, but I keep hoping that. I keep reading them though!

Someone is killing Bay area socialites and they are leaving no clues behind. Because of the high society spotlight, Detective Lindsey Boxer is feeling pressure from on high to track down this ruthless killer. M.E. Claire Washburn is just as baffled as the police when she is unable to find anything wrong with the bodies that are piling up. This is one case that might just be too much for The Women's Murder Club to handle.      So here we are with round eight in James Patterson's …

This is eighth Patterson Women's Murder Club thriller. It is the fifth that he wrote with Maxine Paetro. He composed the first volume of this series by himself and the next two with Andrew Gross. Many of his other books were written with other people. Thus, despite being an extremely popular mystery writer, Patterson's books are not uniformly excellent. This one is a first class engaging thriller.  Patterson composes his mysteries in an interesting manner, and this may partially account …

About this book

Wiki

As San Francisco's most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching--waiting for a chance to take vengeance on Isa and Ethan Bailey, the city's most celebrated couple. Finally, the killer pinpoints the ideal moment, and it's the perfect murder. Not a trace of evidence is left behind in their glamorous home.

As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile murder, someone else is found brutally executed--a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless. His death nearly falls through the cracks, but when reporter Cindy Thomas hears about it, she knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been quite as saintly as everyone thought.

As the hunt for two criminals tests the limits of the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and her partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women's Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built? The exhilarating new chapter in the Women's Murder Club series, The 8th Confession serves up a double dose of speed-charged twists and shocking revelations as only James Patterson can. And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode of the year.
