This was a truly terrible book. I was mildly amused by the first book in the series, found the second book lacking, but this book was the pits. The plot was absurd, the characters flat and the prose was cliche-ridden. ( )

Well! A bit of a shock in this one, in fact a shock similar to one in the first book. I will keep reading the series, in the hope it gets more interesting

This is the third book in the Women's Murder club series. It starts out with the now well known Lindsay Boxer diving into a burring town house and ends with a bang. I was afraid that this book would lack some of the flare that the other two did, but the plot was new and fresh and filled with triumph and tragedy. I did find, however that this book lacked the red haring twist that drew me into the other books. I think that the political satire theme thought the book did not really lend itself to that and might have detracted from the plot. I would recommend it as a good read and look forward to the others in the group. This book was lent to me from the library of Me-Me thanks again. ( )

Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is walking past as a house explodes. She gets a boy out of the house, but three other people are dead. There was a note left nearby... And, more killings to come. Meanwhile, her good friend, Jill, is dealing with an abusive husband.

I think this is my favourite in the Women's Murder Club series so far. And my favourite by James Patterson, so far. He writes short chapters and I just wanted to keep reading. It was a very fast read and it drew me in right away. ( )

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)
