Detective Lindsay Boxer has finally married her long-time boyfriend Joe. But she doesn’t even have time for a honeymoon before returning to work and a traumatic case. A 15-year-old girl is found lying unconscious in the street, naked but for a cheap plastic raincoat, and haemorrhaging badly after having given birth within the last 36 hours. But the baby is nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile Yuki Castellano is trying a case against a woman accused of killing her husband. The evidence is overwhelming and Yuki is certain of winning a conviction. But the accused is a renowned heart surgeon and her attorney specialises in criminal defence of the wealthy. This case might not be a straightforward as Yuki had hoped.
Lindsay and Yuki’s close friend and fellow member of the Women’s Murder Club reporter Cindy Thomas is investigating a terrifying story. Two women have reported recent sexual assaults, but neither can remember anything of the attacks. Are these two incidents linked? Will this be the start of a string of attacks? Cindy is determined to uncover the truth, but her headstrong approach can lead her straight into danger.

This is the first book I have read in this series, so perhaps I needed some history to feel some empathy for the characters. I'm afraid I found all of them extremely bland, and all similar to each other. OR it may be the narrator's attempted voice inflections, which to be honest I thought plain annoying. OR it may be that I have just finished reading Steig Larsson's "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" series and everything else pales into insignificance.
"about the book"
this is a 10th book about women's murder club and as usual it was fantastic! i love those stories about Lindsay and her friends. it is so easy to listen to, whatever i do. i dont want to realise what this book is about, but i loved the ending! kind of predictable though but i still like it. i would recommend the whole series to everyone! im really not looking forward to the end of it... please James Patterson keep writing!
