Yes - the story was very interesting and made my daily commute bearable.
I really didn't like their style compared to the first book narrator. Melissa, at times, over enuciated words that I found very annoying. Her narration is the reason for the lower rating. Because I listened to this book right after the first, her style was jarring and took a while for me to get used to it.
It's the same formula from book one. There is a serial murderer, ladies club is on the prowl to catch a killer, you think it's one person but it's really someone else....
it is a distraction, mind candy. A nice break from some of the "heavy" stuff I read.
Yes because important keys to the storline are emphasized by their voice tones. Reading the text you might miss.
The last couple of chapters when Lindsey and serial killer were confronted!
Melissa was very good, but I loved the masculine voice of Jeremy...he really sounded like a psycho serial killer.
The entire book moved me.
Great read as usual....or should I say great listen...LOL!!!!
The Feminism has been toned down as well as some of the irrelevant sexuality, but the main characters are still making obvious oversights and rookie mistakes to facilitate the "surprise ending" and create character tension that was more "you idiot" than "Oh my gosh". Much better than the first book except for the last hour of depicting the obvious. Thank goodness it does get better.
See the rest of the series.
I don't have time to read books, so if it wasn't on audio, I wouldn't have done it.
Disappointment at the stupidity of the characters. The main characters, especially Lindsey and Clair are presented as the eminently-superior-to-"man"-kind, but they make stupid assumptions and commit unprofessional mistakes. Lindsey's impetuous actions in light of her recognition of her total unpreparedness to act seems to be a departure from logic and any form of rudimentary training, to promote the ill begotten idea that if you are young and idealistic you should act without thought or planning and trust to providence to prevail based on your innate feeling of rightness. The story does indicate that she should have died an inglorious death several times, but the miraculous circumstances prevail to allow her another act of selfserving emotional stupidity. Thank goodness the series does improve. Although better than the first of the series, this is annother early work of development that dosen't contribute to appreciation of the more matured books of the series.
Annother one you can skip. Book three really is better and makes a good starting point for the rest of the series. Don't get me wrong, I have really enjoyed books 3,4 and 7, and will complete the series, but books 1 and 2 need some serious revision. If I had started here, I wouldn't have gone any farther, and missed some good entertainment as the series matured.
Probably. I don't think the writing is all that spectacular but it is something that is easy to listen to withouth having to concentrate.
I would have cut out the f word. I hate vulgarity and this book seemed like it was putting it in just for the sake of having swear words.
As usual this Patterson book is filled with twists and surprises. It starts with a shooting at a black church as choir practice ends. After all the bullets fly, only one little girl is dead. Is this the beginning of a serial killer?
The killer is cold and calculating, killing a number of black men and women but leaving no clues to their identity and it also leaves San Francisco a political powder keg. Is this racially motivated, a hate crime?
Once again Lindsay Boxer, Jill, Cindy, and Claire (The Women's Murder Club) join forces and as the clues add up they begin to realize there may be more to the killings than they originally thought. Is Lindsey’s father involved?
The book is fast moving and I still love the short chapters. It was an enjoyable read and the finale is riveting.
I thought this was a trilogy, the first three books of the Women's Murder Club. If so, why change from one irritating narrator to another? Just when you get used to the characters voices, they change with the 2nd and then the 3rd books.
Claire sounds like an idiot in this book. And we all know, she is not an idiot.
Not good to do.
I love this series. Just fnished 3rd degree and will continue reading all
3rd degree is just as good - even better
I wish I had time!!
