We listened to this during a car trip. It was the first Patterson experience for javaczuk and my first exposure to the Women's Murder Club segment of his writing. (I've read some stand alones, and also the Maximum Ride series.) We tend to read authors such as Mankell, Nesbo, and the late James Thompson, so this was a decided break from Nordic noir. It was good for the trip, but I'm afraid there were a number of plot inconsistencies (most of which could have been caught by a good proof/consistency edit) and on the whole, we were left feeling a little disappointed. I don't know if this was because it was a co-written book, or that the characters didn't grab us. It just seemed a little thin and a little obvious in some places. I may try Patterson again, but I doubt javaczuk will. ( )

Lindsay Boxer, SFPD homicide detective, and her friends use their influence and jobs to solve a couple of intertwined crime sprees. One is a serial killer targeting women and their children and another is a cat burglar targeting wealthy homes safe deposit boxed. Mildly entertaining audio read. I can no longer actually read this series because the written work is just uninspiring. But, listening it whilst I drive around is okay. It isn't in depth, so thinking required. The plot isn't complicated, nor are the characters. The women are very three dimensional. The story reads(listens) like a TV script. The largest drawback with listening is they have made the series into a "production". That means there is a lot of mood music and intermittent sound effects like bombs, gunfire etc. It's really draws away from the story, not enhance it. I wish they would cut that crap out. Another annoying issue is the book is told partially in first person by the main character, partially in third person, omniscient narrator and partially third person in the criminal heads. It doesn't flow very well. There is a lot of sex in this one to. Not sure why. Guess that suppose to appeal to more audiences. ( )

I enjoyed this more than I expected to. I've not read any of the other Women's Murder Club books in this series, so I can't compare it to previous ones, but I thought it was fine as a stand-alone read. It does amaze me how writers such as Patterson (and others) can come up with fairly unique stories one after the other. Sometimes the plotlines in thrillers are a little too over-the-top for me as far as credibility goes, but I didn't think this one was bad. I zipped through this audiobook quickly because I was engrossed the entire time. I'm not sure Carolyn McCormick is my favorite reader -- at least not for this one. (I immediately associated her with The Hunger Games when I heard her voice & couldn't quite shake that out of my head while I was listening.) And the repeated use of the word "frickin'" in the story jumped out at me as being annoying, but otherwise I really enjoyed this one. ( )
