In my opinion the theme and in the book has changed due to a change in Moral Character of the primary players in the book. I enjoyed the previous books in the series. But, now that the principles have changed their Morals by the flash of the fingers on the authors keyboard, I will nolonger purchase any books in the series.
The last few Women's Murder Series books were mediocre at best...finally, some time was spent on crafting an intersting story with suspense! Highly recommended!!!
I was very hesitant about starting this book with the way Patterson has been with some of his latest books. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a fast moving page turner with a mix of mystery and romance. I highly recommend it.
This is one of my favorite series, and this book was no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story, it was fast paced and easy to keep up with. I was surprised at the ending, and can't wait for #10.
I'm a huge Patterson fan -- and I (mostly)enjoyed the Alex Cross series -- but one of the things I loved about the Women's Murder Club was that it was NOT Alex Cross-ish -- until now. The 9th Judgment is completely unfaithful to the Women's Murder Club characters -- in fact it seems completely unconcerned with their development at all. The story is a recycled Alex Cross serial killer plot filled with the usual contrived, predictable features. Yuck. Not recommended unless you have nothing else available in your queue.
I've read them all, none of the disappoint. All them string you along and get you hooked! This one was no different. WRITE FASTER MR PATTERSON! WE WANT NUMBER 10
I was shocked you chose a child murder for this story. At first I could not finish it, but then I overcame how I was feeling and finished it. Overall it was a great book, just not my favorite due to the killing of children. I hope that in the future there will be NO more books about killing children. Iknow that in the real world the unthinkable happens, but when I read for enjoyment I do not want to read about such things.
Very enjoyable series! Sort of like a really great episode of criminal minds and law & order mixed together! Keep them coming!
The 9th Judgment was usual James Patterson (& Maxine Paetro) with interesting plot twists, characters, etc. but I am getting increasingly annoyed by the single narrator attempting to voice all the different characters. We pay enough for these ... can the audiobook companies not afford at least one male and one female narrator?? I just finished House Rules before this one and was swept away into another world by the different narrators in the repertory company. Under the Dome was an excruciating 36 hours with one narrator for dozens of characters ... the childrens voices are especially icky.
