Le donne del Club Omicidi: quattro amiche, quattro donne moderne combattute tra problemi di lavoro, vita privata e sentimentale, protagonisti di una serie di thriller ad alto tasso di suspense e azione. La detective Lindsay Boxer, determinata e coraggiosa. La giornalista Cindy Thomas, brillante e spregiudicata. Il medico legale Claire Washburn, saggia e intuitiva. L'avvocato Yuki Castellano, furba e vivace. Insieme affrontano e risolvono intricati casi polizieschi e i non meno difficili problemi di tutti i giorni. In questo caso devono indagare sull'omicidio di giovani vittime torturate e uccise nei sordidi alberghetti di un quartiere malfamato di San Francisco. Unico indizio nelle mani della polizia: una Mercedes nera notata più volte sul luogo dei delitti. E proprio durante un inseguimento della vettura sospetta, Lindsay Boxer si ritrova coinvolta in un conflitto a fuoco in cui, per salvarsi la vita, è costretta a sparare alle persone a bordo dell'auto, uccidendone una. Legittima difesa? O quel margarita bevuto con le amiche fuori servizio, prima di ricevere la chiamata, l'ha indotta a un errore fatale? Sospesa per il tempo necessario all'inchiesta ufficiale, Lindsay accetta l'invito della sorella per una vacanza a Half Moon Bay, la cittadina dove ha avuto inizio la sua carriera. Per il tenente Boxer però non c'è riposo e si ritrova a rischiare ancora una volta la vita in una lotta all'ultimo sangue con un assassino spietato.

James Patterson has joined up with Maxine Paetro in this 4th in the Women's Murder Club series and I'm pleased to say I enjoyed this much better than the last one which was written with Andrew Gross. Although I would have like to have seen more input from the other members of the club (this one was
The 4th book in the Women's murder club by Maxine Paetro and probably the best so far. Usual James Patterson proven formula, fast paced, short chapters etc.
If this isn't the last James Patterson book I read, I invite you to punch me in the face. I can't take these books seriously. There is no depth whatsoever to the characters, and after four books, I would expect to have more familiarity with them. Lindsay's romantic "relationships" are a joke. Dinner Leggi tutto
Another excellent instalment of the Woman's Murder Club series by Maxine Paetro .* I listened to this Audible audio book many years ago and all that I remembered was that I really, really liked it! Now I remember why! Fast paced and exciting the whole way through. And the revelation at the end was qu Leggi tutto
James Patterson 's books are either really good or just average and this was one of the really good ones. Short, choppy chapters made it fast reading and the thrilling story line made it a page turner that was impossible to put down. The identity of the murderers came completely from left field. I ha Leggi tutto
These books are in the category of "beach/vacation read,"-- they're a quick read but not the most thrilling of mysteries... I thought the first few were the best in the series. But if you like a book you don't have to think too hard to read, then these mysteries are for you.

This is the 4th book in the Women's Murder Club series. I still think they killed off the wrong person in the last book, but I really enjoyed this book. Wow... There was a ton of action. I listen to the audiobook, and the narrator was really good. I enjoyed the audiobook. The book as short character Leggi tutto
This book in the Women's Murder Club series was very different from the first 3 books in the series. In this book, Lindsey is put on administrative leave during a trial while she is being investigated for shooting her police gun at two children. The charges are found to be bogus and Lindsey is found Leggi tutto
I love James Patterson. His style of writing is fun and easy to read. And the Women's Murder Club is great! That said, this book slugged in a few places. Lindsey's trial felt a bit bogged down, and the extra murder investigation didn't get as much of the story as it needed to build suspense. But, i
