Had a quiet and easy night tonight and finished this book in just a few hours. Definitely not as good as the first couple but still enjoyable. I do miss having more of the girls and the murder club. There are some interesting twists and turns at the end ( )
  KyleneJones | Apr 25, 2022 |
Patients are dying at an alarming rate at San Francisco's Municipal Hospital! A nightmare everyone worries about when checking in for surgery—there are always risks—but even people with minor procedures are expiring under suspicious circumstances. Unfortunately, while Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer and Yuki Castellano—Lindsay's lawyer-turned-best friend—are having lunch, Yuki's mother, Keiko, collapses and gets rushed to that same hospital.

While Keiko undergoes tests, Lindsay investigates several bizarre murders of young girls left posed in luxury cars. Bodies pile up in the hospital and out while the girls in the murder club help Yuki cope and support each other. This one is entertaining with lots of action but lacks any significant surprises. ( )

I can't believe I keep listening to this series.

No spoilers - it's just that this is a very negative review. I downloaded a bunch of these from the library to listen to while I do some mindless tasks - that's my only excuse. Any way, Lindsay Boxer has to be the worst cop in the world. She thumps around, breaking every kind of proper police procedure, with the subtle personality of angry wolverine. Jacobi isn't any better. The deep passionate love that the "Club" has for each other is weird. As another reviewer mentioned, women don't act like that. Also, actual, factual things, things that can be researched are wrong. Do not trust anything that happens in a courtroom.

Oh, well, I have a lot of weeding to do, so I guess I'll finish with my "hate listening". It's always good for a laugh. ( )

The Characters:

Lindsay Boxer: Police detective
Clair Washburn: Medical Examiner
Yuki Castellano: Attorney

The Story:

Sooo many tragedies in this book. Scams, killers, fights, twists. It was almost too much. I really thought the hospital killings would link back into the court case. However I was quite shocked at the outcome of that. I didn’t see it coming at all. It was a crazy story and I was hooked to every bit of it. I’m glad Yuki came through in the end. I was very worried about her.

The Random Thoughts:
