Description

These books can be read as stand alone, and you get a brief summary in each woman at the start of the book. Inspector Sonia Alvarez is in her early thirties, a leggy brunette recently relocated from Las Vegas MPD, where she used her street smarts working undercover in Vice. Also, Cindy has been playing a key role in authoring Burke’s life story and going on a publicity tour. The Women's Murder Club takes on two deranged killers, but Detective Lindsay Boxer begins to wonder if the mysterious case is also breaking apart her closest friendships.

When Blackout confronts Cindy, the plot really heats up, and there is much suspense around the possibility that she might not make it out of this situation alive. Truth be told, I had low expectations when starting this novel, but I came away pleasantly surprised and pleased with it.

This was an exciting one and I was nervous throughout the second half thinking there could be a big shift in the "Murder Club".

Lindsay Boxer, Cindy Thomas, Claire Washburn and Jill Bernhardt, the stars of 1st to Die and 2nd Chance, are the founding members of the Women's Murder Club. Now AnnieLee may not live long enough to realize her dreams of stardom—or for the world to learn her true identity. Soon thereafter, a body is found and the victim has been killed in a way very similar to one of the Evan Burke murders described in the book. This year’s outing - “The 23rd Midnight”- has three primary plots – Lindsey’s police team’s hunt for a serial killer, Cindy’s troubled book tour, and Yuki’s courtroom case involving a battered wife. with Maxine Paetro)FALLEN RANGER: To Rory Yates, being a Texas Ranger means absolute loyalty to the badge.Cindy Thomas, Crime Reporter, author and Lindsay's best friend and member of the Women's Murder Club, continued her book tour of the true crime she'd written about Burke, but people were dying in and around the tour venues. Not a great one, but a solid improvement over several of the previous half dozen, building on the multi-book arc involving Evan Burke. As the most powerful family in California, Jenny has all the tools at her disposal to solve her father’s murder. Lindsay realizes that the only way to stay ahead of Blackout and figure out what his intentions are is to involve Burke, who is now on death row.

Together, they solve crimes in their home city of San Francisco, and often meet up to talk about clues and life over Mexican food and drinks at Susie's. It's great to see the ongoing character development in the books, and although this is the latest in a long series, a new reader could easily pick it up and read and enjoy as a standalone. Detective Lindsay Boxer put serial killer Evan Burke in jail and Reporter Cindy Thomas wrote a book that put him on the bestseller list. Another member of the Women’s Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, is prosecuting a difficult case involving the brutal beating of a woman by her husband.

This book stayed consistently busy, moving back and forth between the multiple storylines, and keeping a strong pacing the whole way and avoiding the choppiness and messiness of recent outings. Examples include Lindsay dealing with her stress as a police officer and working through them with her counselor. It is a chilling story that hits too close to home for Boxer and the rest of the women's murder club.

Lindsay and her partner Rich Conklin are tracking this slick perp who seems to be close but always one step ahead. A man is accused of depriving his wife of the necessities of life after chaining her up in the basement of their home. Midnight is the twenty third book in James Patterson and Maxine Paetro's Women's Murder Club series and I am always excited when a new title in this series comes out as I have really enjoyed them all. Our 23rd installment sees Cindy head off on her book tour, her true crime book on Evan Burke has hit the bestsellers listed gained the attention of a copycat killer. Not only is the name creepy, he is following in the footsteps of the infamous and imprisoned serial killer Evan Burke.

I started it not long after finishing a truly epic read and had high hopes that I’d love this story. The Century list includes brand-name novelists such as James Patterson, Karin Slaughter, Lisa Jewell and Katie Fforde, and we are also proud to be publishing compelling and powerful debut novels such as Wool by Hugh Howey and Until You?
