Degree is the third book in the Women's Murder Club series, set in
San Francisco. The book once again brings together Lindsay Boxer,
now a Lieutenant in homicide, Cindy Thomas, Chronicle reporter,
medical examiner Claire Washburn and Assistant District Attorney
Jill Bernhardt. This group has become very close, loyal friends who
would do anything for each other.
A town house owned by an
Internet millionaire is blown up as Lindsay passes by and she risks
her life to save a child inside the house. This incident is only the
beginning of a series of tragic deaths that leads the San Francisco
police department to call in federal agencies to try and put a stop
to the reign of terror brought about by a group calling themselves
The August Spies.
These soldiers who have declared war on the
agents of greed and corruption in our society as they state in one
of their notes are actually pawns being used by their leader to
satisfy his long-standing personal vendettas.
Degree brings a new romance to Lindsay's life but cuts to the heart
of the Women's Murder Club when one of their own meets with
I did not want to lay this book down and am quite
anxious to read another Women's Murder Club mystery.
