I have read most of the books in this series. This was not up to par in my opinion; lots of gory details,but the plot was flat and disjointed. The whole story did not have a completeness, it was like several short stories thrown together around a "bad guy" to fill the publisher's need for a new book.
I wouldn't bother with it in retrospect. There are many, much more well written books of the same genre out.
I did by accident have the abriged version, this could have had some effect.
I have been an avid reader of J. Kellerman for years and this is undoubtably his worst effort to date. While it has a good start & Milo Sturgis is his entertaing self, it turns into droning narrative descriptions like bad Beat Poetry. From there it becomes a stomach turning read full of unnessecary grotesque writing. Ketterman blew it with this one. Unless you like the truly gross, don't bother.
It seems as if Kellerman, like many other popular authors, is churning out books with petty content & quantity and not quality in mind. This can be the demise of an artist.
This is the best mystery I've "read" in some time.
The plot is great not giving one the ability to guess who did what or why. It reveals itself at a good pace and held my interest as well as being an extremely enjoyable read in the company of some great characters.
Hats off to Ms. James' effort!
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.
