I am a huge James Patterson fan and I love the Women's Murder Mystery Club. I felt this book to be missing something though (I am not sure what). It felt a little hurried at the end as if to wrap things up too quickly.
Overall I enjoyed it - although I am glad I was listening to it, as I am not sure if I would have made it through it if I was reading it.
Usually the 5th book of a series is not as good as the previous 4, but not in this case. Patterson does a really good job developing the characters to the point where we really feel as if we know everyone personally. My only complaint is that the story wrapped up awfully quick.
I found this book gripping. There were twists and surprises right up to the very end. I couldn't wait for the opportunity to turn on my iPod and continue listening to this story!
I have read or listened to many of James Patterson's books and like Michael Connelly, its time for some new characters and story-lines. The only thing I enjoy about his books now are the references to SF where I used to live.
James Patterson has a way of throwing you off the trail of the real "culprit"....I was anxious to get to the end to find out the identity of the "Nightstalker" only to find out I had already guessed it! The "Fifth" in the series was just a little bit disappointing....I felt Patterson failed to tie up a few loose ends that he had introduced in the book. All and all a good listen and I will continue with the series.
Overall good series, however The 4th of July was my favorite.
Lindsay and her friends are a fun listen... even through all their trials and tribulations.
I never was able to finish...... no...... "start" book 2.... the narrator was just terrible. She put me to sleep (with boredom, of course.)
Books 1, 3, 4 and 5 were fun and kept me listening.
If you buy the series, good luck with Book 2!
I'm not a huge fan of "The Women's Murder Club", but this book had my attention form beginning to end - where I was somewhat surprised.
An enjoyable, at times tense mystery with great characters.
