2nd Chance reconvenes the Women's Murder Club, four friends (a detective, a reporter, an assistant district attorney, and a medical examiner) who used their networking skills, feminine intuition, and professional wiles to solve a baffling series of murders in 1st to Die. This time, the murders of two African Americans, a little girl and an old woman, bear all the signs of a serial killer for Lindsay Boxer, newly promoted to lieutenant of San Francisco's homicide squad. But there's an odd detail she finds even more disturbing: both victims were related to city cops. A symbol glimpsed at both murder scenes leads to a racist hate group, but the taunting killer strikes again and again, leaving deliberate clues and eluding the police ever more cleverly. In the meantime, each of the women has a personal stake at risk--and the killer knows who they are.

Ahí no más, fijate. Lo que más me choca es que el grupo de mujeres protagonistas se siente forzado y poco creíble. Debe ser porque la escribe un hombre tratando de reproducir las dinámicas de un grupo de mujeres profesionales, pero cayendo inevitablemente en un millon de clichés. Sobre el misterio...
Another roller coaster ride of a novel with almost non-stop action. Told from the point of view of the murderer, giving clues that only become obvious when the mystery is solved, and Lindsay Boxer from the first of these novels. Along with her friends that comprise the Women's Murder Club she has ...
