Pretty basic....I've read the previous 5 Women's Murder Club novels and this just continues the daily adventures of these characters. One's involved in a murder trial, one's involved in solving a crime, one's a medical examiner who found out she's pregnant, and the other is a reporter who basically snoops around in the other three's lives. The trial part in this book was pretty good...the rest just average....
I started listening to this audiobook in the car right before we left for Canada a couple weeks ago and I ended up nixing it about 3 discs into it. The series is just not what it used to be. It was just kind of boring and I found myself drifting off thinking of other things. I really just lost interest in it; pretty much the same way I have with the rest of his books.
Classic James Patterson book. It took me only a few hours to read, and it kept me turning pages. I never felt invested in any of the characters, and the conclusions were not very satisfying for me. His earliest books were his best. With that said, his books are very light reading and I am sure I will continue reading them.
"I'm fit and she was a loose pile of what-the-fuck happened crammed into the corner behind an upended chair and dining table."
Another Women's Murder Club book by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro. If you like the WMC, you will like this book.
But, I must say there were a lot of different plots happening at the same time and I found it hard to get really attached to or engrossed in any of them. Lindsay was chasing the Belly Bomber, Cindy was trying to find an escaped fugitive from previous books, and Yuki was on her honeymoon which was interrupted by an attack. All of the plot lines could have been fleshed out more and then would have been more exciting. As it was, I didn't care much what happened in any of them and felt little if any sense of suspense.
Also, I was disappointed in the ending. Each plot seemed to close with little excitement or fanfare. They were just resolved. And then, the book was over and I was like, "oh, ok".
So, not a bad read, but nothing special really. And, as always with Patterson, short chapters and a really fast read.
Fans of Patterson's Women's Murder Club series. If you haven't read any of the WMC, I suggest you start with the first one, I think it was better. At least, I remember liking it more than this. Or, just read another Patterson series, like the Alex Cross stories. Also better in the beginning. Oh well.
