Lo chiamano il «killer della luna di miele» perché si accanisce su coppie fresche di nozze. San Francisco è sconvolta; l'opinione pubblica reclama il colpevole. E nessuno vuole trovarlo più di Lindsay Boxer, la giovane detective incaricata delle indagini, che però è ostacolata dalla diffidenza dei suoi capi, restii a far ricadere interamente su una donna la responsabilità di un caso così importante. Ma Lindsay non è tipo da cedere allo sconforto e, di nascosto, chiede aiuto alle sue amiche: a Claire Washburn, medico legale, a Jill Bernhardt, procuratore distrettuale, e a Cindy Thomas, giornalista. Nasce così il gruppo delle «Donne del Club Omicidi», quattro donne decise che, insieme, possono spingersi anche là dove i canali ufficiali non giungono. E i risultati non tardano ad arrivare...

How in the world is he a best-selling author? His characters are shallow, his writing is mediocre, and when he writes about romance it feels mechanical and formulaic. This book had a twist at the end, but it was the worst sort of twist - the kind that you can't really predict because he probably did Leggi tutto
Am I the only one that thinks that "Women's Murder Club" sounds not only hokey but juvenile and begging mockery? The story: a psycho serial killer begins murdering newly married couples. 4 women, each with their own stake in cracking the case, are determined to nail the killer, and so band together o Leggi tutto
I tend to read Patterson's books when I don't want my brain to work that hard. 1st to Die fits that bill perfectly. I loved the concept of a group of extraordinary females - including a detective, a lawyer, and a journalist - working together to solve crimes. It was an easy to read, page-turning thr Leggi tutto
I enjoyed this book so much. I really liked the idea behind the Women’s Murder Club. Four female friends-- homicide inspector Lindsay, medical examiner Claire, assistant D.A. Jill, and reporter Cindy—working together to come up with ideas to try to solve the grisly killings of newlywed couples. They Leggi tutto
I was curious about this series because it's obviously very popular, but I can't say I'm terribly impressed by it. First of all, the sappy "you go girl" female characters didn't seem very true to life to me. Patterson seems to think that name-checking Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos, plus a lot of hug Leggi tutto
While I greatly enjoyed this and the next 2 books in the Women's Murder Club series, I was unable to continue reading the series with the same enjoyment due to comments that Patterson himself made in regards to it. He basically said that they were crap, that he just wrote them because he knew that t Leggi tutto
Slabo je poznata činjenica da sam prva dovela Patersonove knjige u Srbiju... i bila sam godinama urednik njegovih knjiga za različite izdavače... i da verovatno najbolje poznajem njegov bogati opus... :) Od svih raznovrsnih njegovih knjiga i serijala ovaj mi je najdraži, koji sam uporno "gurala" god Leggi tutto
My impulse as I read 1st to Die was to start editing. Overwriting, reduncancy, and sentimentality took the place of plot structure, character development, and freshness. Each of the four women was described in terms of her profession and ethnic background--sassy Black woman medical examiner with a f Leggi tutto
