Detective Lindsay Boxer is called away from a meeting of the
Women's Murder Club by her partner who has a location on a vehicle
previously reported to be in the vicinity of a murder scene. The
vehicle attempts to outrun the police car. At the
conclusion of the chase Lindsay is forced to shoot one of the
occupants of the vehicle. The occupant happens to be a young
girl and the girl's family sues Lindsay. Her whole
career hangs on the decision of the jury.
Lindsay escapes to
her sister's home in Half Moon Bay pending the trial but she can't
seem to get away from police work. A killer is on the loose in
Half Moon Bay and the police are at a dead end. The
killings remind Lindsay of a case that she investigated at the
beginning of her career as a policewoman. The fact that the
case is still unsolved peaks Lindsay's interest and she begins an
investigation of her own.
Since a big part of the story takes
place in Half Moon Bay there aren't too many meetings of the Murder
Club in this the fourth book in the series. James Patterson
was joined by Andrew Gross in the 2nd and 3rd
book of the series and now he is joined by Maxine Paetro in the
writing of this 4th book.
I enjoyed the
book and will be sure and pick up the next installment of the
Women's Murder Club. The conclusion of the book brings a new
member to the Club but you will have to read the book to discover
