Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
When a horrifying attack leaves one of the four members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before anyone else is hurt. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the streets together with their nannies--but the kidnappers aren't demanding ransom. Amid uncertainty and rising panic, Lindsay juggles the possibility of a new love with an unsolvable investigation, and the knowledge that one member of the club could be on the brink of death. And just when everything appears momentarily under control, the case takes a terrifying turn, putting an entire city in lethal danger. Lindsay must make a choice she never dreamed she'd face--with no certainty that either outcome has more than a prayer of success.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2008-03-15)

A vicious and brutal murder on a San Francisco ferry kicks off this sixth entry of Patterson and Paetro's "Women's Murder Club" series. One of the club members is seriously injured in the random shooting, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer is determined to find the deranged gunman. Her newly acquired title is, however, short-lived; the police brass decide that she is better off as a sergeant working the city's mean streets.

Lindsay's personal life is just as chaotic; she is forced to make a tough choice about her romance with a federal agent. There is a lot to like in this mystery: well-defined characters, a creepy villain, and crackling courtroom drama. Mingling with the solid police procedural is dialog that just doesn't seem to ring true and a wordiness that weighs down the action. Still, there are enough customers who faithfully read everything Patterson produces, and the success of the TV drama Women's Murder Club will make this a popular item in all libraries. Narrator Carolyn McCormick succeeds in moving the action along at an enjoyable pace, helping listeners navigate the slow parts and bringing excitement to the story even when it doesn't deserve it.

With the Women's Murder Club down one member after a brutal attack, Lindsay Boxer has her hands full: she's trying to stop a nasty bunch from snatching children off the street and find time for the new love of her life.
