Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

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.-Joseph L.
