For every secret....
Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.
For every lie....
At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life - a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?
There's a different way to die....
Lindsay's every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family.
With James Patterson's white-hot speed and unquenchable action, 10th Anniversary is the most deliciously chilling Women's Murder Club book ever.
Crack another case with the Women's Murder Club.

I've read more organized, thoughtful, creative, riveting fiction from middle schoolers. The only thing that could have made this mess worse would be a monotone narration that induces nausea, oh wait I got that too. DO NOT WASTE your money or more importantly your time on this 'book'. Carolyn McCormick is positively awful and actually manages to make the book worse.
This is a great story and even better Narrator. It has multiple stories woven together making an excellent and complete story. It is one of the best Lindsay Boxer story. Please write more of the Women's Murder Club. Excellent!!! Five Star
I have enjoyed the "Murder Club" series and its characters, and this one did not disappoint. I enjoy books where the authors have developed the characters over the years so that you almost feel like you know them. I am curious to see what happens in #11!!
I can't even tell you if the story was good or not because the narrator is so awful! It was hard to listen to. She goes from simply reading the book to you (which I hate) to trying to use ridiculous voices for the men, young women etc. which was distracting and laughable. Skip this one.
I've listened to most of the Women's Murder Club books over the past two years or so... I was really excited to get this one right off the block without waiting for my library to get it. I should have waited. I was disappopinted in the story development (or lack thereof), and just felt like it ended so abruptly. I wish I had saved my gift card. Oh, well. Live and learn.
It is has been a long time since we visited with these girls. I've missed them and was excited to hear what they have been up to over the past year or so. This story was good, but like the sexy, New York based characters in the popular cable television series, the characters (Cindy, Yuki, Claire, etc.) are aging. There does not seem to be any new material or excitement added to this story-line...unfortunately. Perhaps it was the narration. This story did not seem to be up to previous standards.
I enjoyed the narrator and the familiar characters, but the story line is but a shadow of the former books. I just finished listening to it a few days ago and I don't have any vivid images to recall. There was limited suspense in the story line and the character development was weak for both the main group and the supporting cast.
In the past I have enjoyed the series of the women murder club. But lately the books have become terrible. The story lines, forced together, truly go nowhere. Three plots, lousy at best, strung together forcibly. It feels that there's a struggle in the writer's mind whether to paint the characters in a whiny light or just plain annoying. The narrator does not help the book either. With her fake and forced intonations at every line, you are left just plain annoyed. Reading this book makes you feel like you have spent 7 hours in the company of a 5 year old spoiled brat. Most of us buy these books because we want some mystery and action, instead we are served a healthy dose of blah mundane events. The effort to depict the dichotomy in Boxer's feelings fails miserably, keeping the reader wondering where is the plot heading to and what happened to character development. I am sure that this would be the last book that I will purchase in that series. On a scale of 1-5, it scores terrible.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
Great book, everytime I thought it was close to the end, something else happened. I love the character development that brings you further into their lives. Carolyn McCormick is a great narrator, her mellow voice just makes the books flow so smoothly.
Can't wait for the next one!
LOVE English Bulldogs, Nelson Demille, Patricia Cornwell and just reading in general!
I have enjoyed most of James Patterson's Murder Club books. This one didn't seem to have the edge his others had and unfortunately, the narration made it even harder to listen too. Carolyn McCormick seemed to make all the women seem whiney and week instead of strong and forces to be reckened with. It's a shame because I've been looking forward to this book.
