The Women’s Murder Club series continues and the reader is in for twice the entertainment with 7th Heaven as Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich, are involved in two high profile cases.
Michael Campion, son of a former governor has disappeared. Michael has an inoperable heart condition. The case was classified as a kidnapping but no leads could be found. After some time, a new tip indicated that Michael was last seen at the home of a prostitute, Junie Moon. After questioning Junie, she did admit (after she asked that the tape be turned off) that Campion came to her house and he did die in her bed. At first, he told her he was in pain and to call his dad. She panicked and did not know how to call his dad. After all, his dad was a former governor. What was she going to tell him – that his son was there with a prostitute? He would put her in jail. Junie stated that she held Michael in her arms and sang to him as he got worse and finally died. Junie’s boyfriend, Ricky came over and they disembered the body and disposed of it. The only problem is that when Ricky was questioned he denied anything like this happened and thought it was a joke!
There are several murders taking place due to beautiful houses being set on fire and leaving the owners inside to perish at the same time. Lindsay and Rich try to find the arsonist and realize the fires are getting too close for comfort.
Are these two plots connected?
Along with everything else that is going on, Lindsay has some problems in her personal life because she is torn between two men.
If you are a fan of The Women’s Murder Club, you know what to expect when you start to read a new addition to the series. 7th Heaven will meet your expectations and much more. You know that once you start reading these books, you find it difficult to stop. From all of James Patterson's books, The Women’s Murder Club is my favorite mainly because of the lead character Lindsay Boxer. She is a smart and determined detective and lets nothing get in her way in order to solve a case. What makes 7th Heaven even more exciting is that you have two thrilling plots going on at the same time. There are several surprises in this book that will shock the reader because just when you think you have everything figured out – you don’t! The biggest surprise, however, is at the conclusion. James Patterson and Maxine Paetro do an excellent job of bringing this story together in a fashion that will satisfy even the pickiest reader. Be sure to add “7th Heaven” to your reading list.
