James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Adult Fiction PATTERS

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

At the start of the gripping seventh Women's Murder Club thriller from bestseller Patterson and Paetro (after 2007's The 6th Target), San Francisco is still haunted by the disappearance of Michael Campion, the much-adored teenage son of a former California governor, three months earlier. Following up on a tip that Michael was last seen entering a prostitute's house, homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer and her new partner, Rich Conklin, are shocked when the hooker immediately confesses that Michael, who had a heart defect, died during sex and she disposed of his body. Lindsay's ADA pal, Yuki Castellano, is sure she has a slam-dunk case, but the trial soon takes a bizarre turn. Lindsay and Rich also scramble to track down a serial arsonist responsible for murdering a string of wealthy couples. Lindsay races to put the pieces together before the fires hit too close to home. In true Patterson style, the reader is privy to Lindsay's thoughts as well as the killers', ratcheting up the suspense an extra notch. Fans won't be disappointed with the twist at the end that not even Lindsay sees coming. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

A popular politician's ill son is missing, and prominent Bay Area residents are dying in a series of seemingly random fires. Both cases baffle San Francisco Police detective Lindsay Boxer, who simultaneously grapples with her feelings for an FBI agent and her attraction to her handsome partner. In this, one of the best entries in "The Women's Murder Club" series, everything comes together in a neat package that is often gruesome, sometimes funny, but always entertaining. Narrator/Law & Order veteran actress Carolyn McCormick (6th Target) skillfully creates memorable characters in a reading that is professional, is free of theatrics, and adds significantly to the transfer from print to audio. Recommended for all collections. [Also recorded by Books on Tape. 7 CDs. unabridged. 7¿ hrs. ISBN 978-1-4159-4703-6. $80; the Little, Brown hc was a recent New York Times best seller.--Ed.]--Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg AFB Lib., Lompoc, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
