This is a pacy book which grabbed hold of me from the beginning and kept me wanting to read on. It would be my favourite book in the series so far, and is better than most of James Patterson's other books. There is one shock in the book which for me came from my blindside. I would recommend this book to others and it is a very quick read. 4.5 stars. ( )

Review: The Third Degree by James Patterson. A suspenseful thriller featuring the Women’s Murder Club. A good, fast paced read.

As usual Patterson keeps you on your toes to hold onto the shocking page turner of his adventurous, apprehensible crime thriller novel. This time he begins with his main detective character of the San Francisco Police, Lindsay Boxer out taking her daily jog.

Lindsay never thought she would start her day becoming involved in a flaming explosion in a townhouse that happened while jogging her course in a pleasant neighborhood. Of course, Lindsay plunges inside to search for survivors. She rescued a young boy but three other lives were taken. Was it arson, murder or both….?

Later she finds our there was a fourth dead body that should have been there. Added to her case and mystifies her and the whole San Francisco Police/Fire Department is a missing ten month old baby……! Will she be found…dead or alive…?

The story goes on with Lindsay, the detective, asking her friends, Clair, medical examiner, Jill, Assistant D.A. and Cindy, a newspaper reporter to help her to figure out if there was a connection of the fire victim’s to a number of up-rising murders. Were the murders connected…? Perhaps…!

Bizarre messages were starting to be left along the way signed by a member of a sixties radical group. Who were these people and what did they want…? Even more terrifying, will one of Lindsay’s friends be targeted by the killer…! Or will it be Lindsay herself…? Will one of them die…? Read on to find the answers.

I figured out what it is about these books that I find so ridiculous. Patterson writes women like men think women are going to think and act. Every thought and conversation is the natural way women actually think and speak, it is the way men perceive a woman's process and conversation. It is forced, and that is being generous.

This is the second series of Patterson's that I have tried. I'm more than half finished with this one, so I expect I will finish it tonight. That said, I am going to remove the rest of his books from my "want to read" list. I just can't bring myself to read any more of his work. It's like reading high school term papers in that the ideas are connected but not cohesive. The interactions make since but are not natural. I'm just done here. ( )

Lindsay and Jill are enjoying a quiet afternoon in San Francisco when the townhouse across the street explodes into flames. A sinister note signed "August Spies" is found at the scene, while an infant who was asleep in the house at the time of the disaster remains unrecovered. As a wave of similar incidents erupts across town, the Women's Murder Club starts to identify a pattern of political terrorism that leads right back to August Spies. Now, with a child still missing and an upcoming meeting of G-7 nations that will provide the perfect stage for another attack, time is of the essence for three savvy detectives bent on putting a stop to the violence.… (more)
