Okay if you like Patterson. Narration was simply too distracting. Maybe that's just me but it was something I could not get over. I did finish the book.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
This novel gets you hooked on the charactors. Strong women with a soft side. I could not wait to listen to them all!
This book really got me hooked on listing to my purchases. It is really good and keeps you hanging on to find out what is going to happen next.

Great new series from the king of suspense!! James Patterson does it again with the introduction of the Murder Club - a club made up of four fantastic women who collaborate to solve crimes. This fast-paced, can't push stop mystery is James Patterson at his best. Hold on tight for a fantastic ride to the very suspenseful ending.
Patterson can be such a good author but not when writing from a woman's point of few. The book is made worse by the narration which didn't follow the text description (for example, when the two police are questioning a VIP and are described as being tactful and cautious, the narrator's voice is the opposite--snotty and sharp.) (Another example: A character is devastated by a major loss and the narrator reads her line in a perky, peppy voice.) I won't spoil the ending but it made a bad book worse. Final insult: implying that these professional women would call each other "the girls."
This just isn't my type of book. It follows a predictable pattern. There is just enough sex and violence, just enough blood and pathos to make the grade for this genre. I am looking for more. I think people who like light reading, mystery and thrill, might enjoy this. I won't order any more this author.
I liked the plot and pace, but the female characters were nothing like any woman I've ever known. Mr. Patterson might either want to write mostly male characters or spend more time getting to know a wider range of ladies. I have eight close, female cousins, a sister, and a slate of ill-conceived relationships littering my past, and I couldn't see any of the personality traits uniquely feminine in his main character. Also, the characters talked too much like one another. As an example, I think every significant character except one said "God", "Jesus", or some derivation of the same throughout the book. I was an atheist for 23 years, and I've never been in a mix of people who ALL used the Lord's name in vain.
Otherwise, I like it! If you want to pass the time with a talented storyteller, Patterson is a decent option.
