Imagine living in San Francisco knowing someone walks around killing newlyweds. 4 women share the same desire, to kill this man. Lindsay BBoxer; who is a homicide detective for the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn; who is a crime desk reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle , Jill Bernhardt; who is the Chief Medical Examiner for San Francisco, and Cindy Tomas; a reporter who just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle, all want to kill this man to put people out of their misery. Although they all work in places that have to do with solving murder mysteries they are not getting any closer to solving the towns problems. The theme of this book would probably be people tend to do things that they should not do. I would recommend this book to people who like to read murder mysteries. ( )

A brilliant story and a nice change to read a book with a woman in the 'lead role' in a crime thriller. Lets hope there's more to come ( )

Four women-four friends-share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle. But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping... ( )

A fast-paced thriller that grips the reader right from the beginning. So why did we need an earthquake, a psychobabble-laden stand-off at the end, a love story and the protagonist contemplating their mortality? The plot is interesting enough that we did not need all these things- it makes an unlikely story completely unbelievable. ( )

Wow, my first James Patterson book and I am in love with his writing. I will definitely be reading more of his books. I have fallen in love with the Women's Murder Club.

I have been introduced to Claire, Lindsey, Jill and Cindy. Each are from a different fields and yet all their jobs work together. Claire is a doctor, Lindsey and Inspector, Jill District Attorney and Cindy is a reporter. Together they solve the Wedding Murders.

They look at the evidence and work out things just by talking to each other. It was enjoyable reading about their meetings and just seeing how they have become friends. They trust each other and will work together to solve the case. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446696617, Paperback)

The Women's Murder Club pits four San Francisco women professionals against a serial killer who's stalking and murdering newlyweds in bestselling author James Patterson's newest thriller. Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector who's just gotten some very bad news. She deals with it by immersing herself in her newest case and soliciting the personal as well as professional support of her closest friend, who happens to be the city's medical examiner. The two women, along with an ambitious and sympathetic reporter and an assistant DA, form an unlikely alliance, pooling their information and bypassing the chain of command in an engaging, suspenseful story whose gruesome setup is vintage Patterson.

"What is the worst thing anyone has ever done?" the killer muses to himself early in the narrative. "Am I capable of doing it? Do I have what it takes?" Answering his own question, he embarks on a murderous spree that takes him from the bridal suite in a Nob Hill hotel to a honeymoon destination in the Napa Valley and thence to a wedding reception at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Dispatching his victims on the happiest day of their lives, he purposefully leaves enough clues for his distaff trackers to discover his identity and put him behind bars. But just when the women think they've got the case all wrapped up, the killer turns the tables on them in a bloody denouement that even the most discerning reader won't see coming. Patterson, author of the popular Alex Cross mysteries, promises future adventures for the Women's Murder Club, which may give him an opportunity to develop his heroines' characters more completely and win new fans among those who prefer their detectives in high heels and lipstick. --Jane Adams
