It's the 12th book of the Women's Murder Club series, and it's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labor - while two killers are on the loose.
Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career.
A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real. Lindsay doesn't believe him, but then a shooting is called in - and it fits the professor's description to the last detail.
Lindsay doesn't have much time to stop a terrifying future from unfolding. But all the crimes in the world seem like nothing when Lindsay is suddenly faced with the possibility of the most devastating loss of her life.

Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
Maybe I'm getting picky - this one doesn't live up to the advertising. The characters are the same compelling characters Patterson and Paetro have produced before, but the plot line doesn't hold together.
Maybe they need a break?
This story, as usual, has many sub stories intertwined. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Yes, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat because so much was happening at once!
This one is as great as the rest.
When Boxer held her baby for the first time, I almost cried!
Worth the $$$.
While the women started out courageous and well centered, they seem to have morphed into whiners.
Boxer was going nuts during baby illness and even new mothers don't usually carry on so.
Others may feel differently. I think they are being portrayed poorly. They are dangerously close to a romance novel. If that happens, I'm out.
This entire series is fantastic! Can't wait for the next
Yes! Author(s) isn't afraid to kill off a main character or end relationships badly.
All of them! I LOVE this narrator!
She does a good job of doing different voices, but in my opinion, she makes Lindsay seem entirely too dramatic. It is very distracting. I enjoy the stories, but she makes me not want to listen.
The last few books in this series read like an abridged novel. Short on details and confusing because of that fact...
This one is set at a quicker pace than the others in series. Could not stop listening. Started book at 7 pm and by 1am I stopped and went to bed and started where I left off in the morning. Shorter book than the others but really good storylines.
The more personal side of the characters came out a bit more in this book. Gives more insight into each one. It helps to know what makes them click.
Richie Conklin. There was a sensitivity that was only aluded to in the other books. I'm not a fan of changing readers in the middle of a series but January did ok with the reading. The distinction between the characters wasn't as pronounce as Carolyn McCormick's performance, but January's voice and cadence made you listen and want more.
"WHERE ARE THE BODIES???" for sure
Getting ready to listen to Unlucky 13. A little sad that 14 isn't out yet.
After reading some of the reviews for this Women's Murder Club mystery, I was expecting to not enjoy it as much as I have the previous books. I had already purchased it, based on the history, so decided to listen anyway, knowing I could return it if it was not up to par. I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't listened to one for awhile, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, just as I had the others. It's not great literature, but it is a good story with familiar characters. There was not a lot of character development, but the story and the action were good. The narration wasn't bad and certainly not, in my opinion, as off-putting, as other reviews said. It's mind candy. Enjoy it.
