    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Kristi says: "A great short detective mystery!"
    "mediocre but still not of much interest=="

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    different narrator and different main character and why are so many characters needed to express my opinion


    What could Lisa Gardner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    same as 3 again why so many characters needed to express my opinion. The same expression as 3


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    not enough character again why so many characters needed to express my opinion.


    What character would you cut from The 7th Month?

    pregnant detective why cannot I express my opinion briefly and not with so many words/characters
