Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Not Disappointed"

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 12th of Never to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is always better. I love the inflections of the reader and the personalization that they instill.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story is some what predictable as the murder clubs series has become. Time for a new club member or at least a new twist.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    All of it. Wonderful reader.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't say it was a waste of my time but it was lackluster. Still like to follow all the girls


    If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good, just blah


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    She can be monotone and characters are not well distinguished

    "Good Book"
    What made the experience of listening to 12th of Never the most enjoyable?

    Story and narration.


    What other book might you compare 12th of Never to and why?

    Can't think of one right now.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, not yet.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few parts where the background sounds drowned out the narrator, making it almost impossible to hear what was being said. Other then that, the book was riveting.

    "Not my favorite Women's Murder Club book"

    I'm not sure what has happened to this series. I blame it on the change of narrator. Carolyn McCormack was the voice of Lindsay Boxer. They changed to January LaVoy and Lindsay became whinier. I always wanted Lindsay and Joe to marry but it hasn't improved the character or the plots.
    I also agree with other reviews that there were too many plotlines running through this. Yuki's court case was too much. I like when she is involved in a case involving the other women. Yuki seems to have become the favorite character. I have never been that fond of the Lindsay/Rich partnership and I don't like where the Rich/Cindy relationship ended up.

    I get the feeling that this book was more of a result that it was time for another book rather than any thought or feeling behind it.

    "VERY Poor storyline, annoying characterizations"

    Where to start...? Ok. It sucked. I listened to the end, because I did want to know what happened, but the story was poorly drawn, EVERY ONE of the characters were written as annoyingly insipid morons. There is NO way Richie Conklin would be a real cop. He's too stupid, in this book anyway. The story arc about Lindsey's baby was gratuitous and really had no place in this book. The storyline about the professor was patently irritating. Patterson either should stop putting his name on this dreck, or hire better "Co-Authors", but we all know JP doesn't write a word of these co-written books. He just puts his name on them to sell them. I think the WMC has run it's course. Retire the force.

    Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    "I wish I could say I liked it."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have always loved the characters of the WMC. I look forward to following their stories. But this book was not good. The story was disjointed; the character development poor. When Lindsey left her newborn baby girl alone in the hospital it infuriated me. It wasnt realistic. There were characters who moved on from broken relationships too quickly. There were few interactions between the four women. I found myself angry with Mr Patterson for letting his fans down. It seemed that he and his publisher were more worried about putting a book out "on time" than they were about writing and publishing a quality mystery book for the fans of the WMC series.


    Has 12th of Never turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. But I may leave this series. There are too many good books out there to waste my time and money on any more sub-par books.

    Books should be like a fine wine, getting only more complex the longer they are open, and have time to breath. My only conclusion is there must be a market for cheap wine, just like there is for poor writing. So if you are a connoisseur of cheap wine you may enjoy this swill. Shame on me for even spending my money on this, should have waited for more reviews.

    "Nice Addition to Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 12th of Never to be better than the print version?

    I do not know. I think I would have enjoyed reading the print version.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me involved. I liked the different story lines


    Did January LaVoy do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Her voicing of Lindsay was good. I did not like Yuki's voice. The voice of one of the killers made my skin crawl. I liked Carolyn McCormick's narration better.







    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. I thought the storyline with Lindsay's baby was poignant. Lindsay is my reason for following this series. I am not really interested in the other three woman.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended only if you have followed the whole series.
