    Toru Okada is going through a difficult time. He is without a job, his cat has disappeared, and his wife is behaving strangely. Into this unbalanced world comes a variety of curious characters, a young girl sunbathing in a nearby garden; sisters who are very peculiar indeed; an old war veteran with a violent, disturbing story. Okada retreats to a deep well in a nearby house. And the story unfolds.

    Overall

    I found this to be a very entertaining story. This is not the type of book I usually buy, and I'm glad that I tried it! It's a wonderful tale with several other stories within. It is well written and well read - very enjoyable.

    Story

    There's a killer on the loose in San Francisco, and he's stalking newlyweds. When the usual procedures to stop him don't work, four women, each holding a piece of the puzzle, form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case. 1st to Die is the start of a new series of crime thrillers from James Patterson.

    "Narration bugs"
    Overall

    Not even done with the book and may not finish. The narrator's inflections make the characters, especially the main character, seem wimpy and weak - and (they're)she's not. Also, the volume changes during those times(speaking softly - sometimes with a tremor that makes me want to turn this off)make this very difficult to follow. I'll avoid other books with this narrator.
    Can't rate the book's content because I can't get past the narrator - and may not finish the book.
