Doveva essere una tranquilla cena fuori fra colleghe per tre insegnanti. Ma a fine serata nessuna di loro rientra più a casa. Sembrano sparite nel nulla, finché viene ritrovato in un motel il corpo di una delle tre. A indagare sul caso, c’è il sergente Lindsay Boxer della polizia di San Francisco. Chi è stato? Perché? Dove sono le altre due donne? Lindsay deve fronteggiare le pressioni del capo della polizia e della stampa: tutti vogliono il colpevole, tutti vogliono fermare l’orrore, ma lei brancola nel buio. Contemporaneamente, il marito e collega di Lindsay, Joe Molinari, incontra una sconosciuta proveniente dall’Europa dell’Est che afferma di aver identificato proprio a San Francisco un noto criminale di guerra del suo Paese d’origine, fino a quel momento ritenuto morto. Un uomo che si era macchiato di crimini atroci e di cui lei stessa era stata vittima. Ma subito dopo la denuncia del fatto, anche lei finisce drammaticamente nella scia delle donne scomparse…
Lindsay, Joe e tutte le Donne del club omicidi devono unire le forze per proteggere San Francisco e loro stessi non solo da un fantasma del passato, ma anche da un vero mostro del presente. Un individuo tanto pericoloso quanto spietato nei confronti dell’universo femminile.

I always look forward to my annual exploration of the Women’s Murder Club, one of James Patterson’s strongest series alongside Maxine Paetro, who is a stellar collaborator. While many series lose their energy after so long, the eighteenth novel in this collection remains fresh and poignant, perfect Leggi tutto

This is the first ARC that I've read. Thanks to all parties. So, this is how a thriller from 2019 is like. I think that though this book was formulaic, it had enough new points to deserve reading. What I'm saying is that I do recommend it. Also, just saying a thriller is formulaic by itself is a clic Leggi tutto
Some Patterson collaborations are woeful however, this one remains an excellent combination with Paetro. The Women’s Murder Club are back on the trail of three missing teachers and Joe is following-up on the sighting of a Bosnian war criminal. This particular avenue made an excellent plot!

I love that this series is still going so strong 18 books in. This book was just as good as book 1 and I read it in a day. Can always count on James Patterson for a good read.

Lindsay’s husband, FBI agent Joe Molinari was also on a case which was causing him headaches. A young Leggi tutto
What did I just read? This book is terrible. The writing is juvenile, the “he said, I said” dialogue is comical, and the plot line has a gazillion credibility holes. And it’s boring. Super boring. It’s a murder mystery that literally has no suspense, and doesn’t have any excitement until 60% into th Leggi tutto
I give this book a 3.5. It was okay. Not up to the usual Womens Murder Club books. The story didnt grab me. There was very little interaction with the other ladies in the group.
Let me be honest up front. I read most of James Patterson’s books and have for several years. Some might ask why and that’s another whole discussion best saved for another day. I have really enjoyed some, liked some, and didn’t really care for others. On a personal level, I must admit that his Women Leggi tutto
Women’s Murder Club are my favourite Patterson novels but this one just didn’t grab my attention. Slow read, bland.
