I enjoy the women's murder club very much. This was another good addition to the series.
The narrative was good, some cheesy music here & there and the mystery went deeper than expected.
I'd recommend this series
I have all books by James Patterson on Audible. I listen to them all everyday ❤️
3rd degree is my favorite. It's the beginning of Joe and Lindsay's love affair
Maybe, The music and sound effects were very distracting to me. I would have enjoyed the performance more if it would have been just a narrator.
It was difficult to tell the difference between characters during conversations between Clair, Lindsay and Cindy. Also, Jill either does or does not have a southern accent... the in between accent is confusing.
I have enjoyed James Patterson before, so I am pretty sure its not him as much as it is the narrator. I just can't put my finger it on it but I tried it three times and not to much luck, I gave it one star because I didn't get far enough to to rate it,
I am a long time James Patterson reader and Audible listener. I am a fan of Alex Cross and his many challenges. I first listened to this book on tape and that was years ago. I should have taken notes. I remember the opening scene, the explosion and the mayhem and I thought that it might be a winner to listen to again. Once into it, I could not believe that I ever liked it. The characters are unreal and not worthy of Patterson, but worse than that is the preaching: The author/s are hell bent to proselytize in issues such as healthcare and such. Then there is the dialogue. Does anyone believe that women speak or think the way the author/s portray? I could not get bast the first few chapters. I should ask for my money back... Saxon
Figure out how people really talk and think. The author/s seem to out of touch with reality. The heroine, a supposedly hard-nosed member of the law is pathetic. And think about it: she takes her cases to a bunch of other women that belong to the "Women's Murder Club coffee klatch. Is any of this believable?
The narrator did a good job. She related the text as written.
This is much better than the first two. Not a bad place to start the series. You won't miss anything memorable from the first two.
I have hearing loss from the war so some of the background "mood" music wiped out the narration. Also some of the soft or lispy voices were hard to follow.
Yes, if they like the series.
I was upset with one of the twists, so early in the series too. I just hope Patterson makes the outcome good in the next books. Not to big on the sound effects used, but other than that it was a good book. I like the reader, have listened to her on a few other books. Some people say she's monotone and doesn't change characters well, but in this book she did good. The story line was really good, with suspense. Like I said in the beginning, it has a few twists with one being very unexpected. All in all a good "read". Love the series.
Make the beverage of your choice, start a fire or sit on the patio, relax, and start reading. You will finish it in one sitting because you will not want to put it down. Enjoy!! Love the short chapters which allows for “potty breaks”.
This is a REVIEW so I am not going to give away the plot. That would make me a spoiler. HATE THE PEOPLE THAT DO THAT.
When a home is bombed and then a death by deadly chemical is followed by another bombing at a mall, it's clear that some group is out for revenge or are they terrorists? We get to meet a few of the bad guy guys from their dialogue but their identities are not all revealed until the somewhat surprising ending.
The thriller part of the novel is a well crafted and nicely paced police procedural that takes us through forensics, profiling, post mortems, cooperation between the LA municipal police force and the FBI, and the moral dilemma posed by the tragic requirement to withhold details of an investigation because it may be harmful to the public.
There are also situations that address battery by a husband but I do not want to give too much away.
Pick it up and read it. It moves fast and is enjoyable as the Patterson books usually are.
