Three interwoven mysteries in this one, more interwoven by the investigator Lindsay Boxer and her friends and time rather than any common perpetrator. The story opens with a shooting spree on a San Francisco Ferry with one of the Women's Murder Club members caught up in it, the case isn't cut and dried, the gunman is not sane, but will justice be done? What is justice in this case, and I'm not sure it was accomplished.

The second case is a case of a child abduction with the nanny and the nanny turning up dead, as Lindsay searches she finds more questions than answers and she knows that time is running out.

Then there's the strange goings on in the apartment building where Cindy, the reporter of the pack, lives.

Interesting stories, kept me reading, didn't really stand out but there was a lot of tension in the stories. ( )

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.... ( )

Fast paced with several stories going at the same time. We have a ferry killing spree, domestic violence, an abduction and an apartment building psycho. All intertwined with relationship problems. While this is the seventh book in the series, the author doesn't spend a lot time on back stories for the main characters. I haven't read any of the other books in this series but felt comfortable with the main characters. I plan to get the rest of the series. Would recommend as a excellent read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446198951, Mass Market Paperback)

When a horrifying attack leaves one of the four members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before anyone else is hurt.

And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the streets together with their nannies--but the kidnappers aren't demanding ransom. Amid uncertainty and rising panic, Lindsay juggles the possibility of a new love with an unsolvable investigation, and the knowledge that one member of the club could be on the brink of death.

And just when everything appears momentarily under control, the case takes a terrifying turn, putting an entire city in lethal danger. Lindsay must make a choice she never dreamed she'd face--with no certainty that either outcome has more than a prayer of success.
