A young girl is killed in the crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity. While awaiting trial, Lindsay escapes to the tranquility of the beautiful town of Half Moon Bay. But the peaceful community there is reeling from a string of unspeakable murders. Working with her friends in the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay finds a link between these killings and a case she worked on years before - an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay battles for her life on two fronts: before a judge and jury as her trial comes to a climax and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings. It all comes to a head before the big annual 4th of July celebration on the waterfront at Half Moon Bay. "Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried. There's no stopping his imagination." -New York Times Book Review "Patterson's skill at building suspense is enviable." -Kansas City Star "When it comes to constructing a harrowing plot, author James Patterson can turn a screw all right."-New York Daily News

This was another Patterson novel that was a quick read that I actually quite enjoyed. It was classic Patterson in the sense that the book was fast chapters, lots of action, and it was not difficult at all to figure out who the bad guys were. A light read and a nice break from the more serious read...
This book was different than any of the other books in the series. The plots of the first three were "Here is the problem, let's solve the problem, let's introduce the killer, let's find the killer, found the killer, the end." I love books like that, but this one was different and it so far my favor...
