The Women’s Murder Club series is the only James Patterson work I still bother reading. I enjoy the four characters who make up this group; the short lived TV series some years ago enhanced this enjoyment.

Despite its flaws, I did enjoy 16th Seduction. I thought there was a big whole in the plot near the end. I kept asking myself,”didn’t the authorities do a thorough search of the house and the suspect’s background? Since it was such a high profile case, didn’t they find anything questionable in his history?”

There was a subplot that was a bit absurb; perhaps it was added just to pad the book? And, the denouement seemed rushed and somewhat of a jumble.

Despite those flaws, I couldn’t put this book down and read it in two sittings. ( )

Lindsay and Joe are having dinner at Pier 9 in San Francisco when the science museum at Pier 15 explodes. In the devastating aftermath, they encounter a man who claims to have caused the destruction of Sci-Tron. Lindsay arrests him, but things take a far different turn when he comes to trial.

While the court case unfolds, Lindsay is investigating a mysterious death while she struggles to balance her time between work and Julie. And she’s considering her future with Joe.

With the typical short chapters ramping up the tension and the suspense building as the investigation of the bombing unfolds, readers will find themselves pulled in to the story. The twists and turns of the plot keep those pages turning.

Readers may be disappointed that, although all of the Women’s Murder Club folks are on hand, there is not much interaction between them and the focus of the story remains mainly on Lindsay and her concerns about her marriage and the outcome of the trial. Although readers may find the secondary plot to be a poor fit with the well-developed bombing tale, it’s a good read.

Recommended. ( )

Detective Lindsay Boxer faces a heart-stopping threat in the newest Women's Murder Club thriller.

Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer's life was perfect--she had a beautiful child and a doting husband, Joe, who helped her catch a criminal who'd brazenly detonated a bomb in downtown San Francisco, killing twelve people. But Joe wasn't everything that Lindsay thought he was, and she's still reeling from his betrayal as a wave of mysterious, and possibly unnatural, heart attacks claims seemingly unrelated victims across San Francisco. As if that weren't enough, the bomber she and Joe captured is about to go on trial, and his defense raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe's investigation. Not knowing whom to trust, and struggling to accept the truth about the man she thought she knew, Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a brilliant criminal puts her on trial.
