Detective Lindsay Boxer chases an elusive suspect...her husband.
As she settles in to motherhood and a happy marriage, Lindsay Boxer thinks she has found domestic bliss. But when a beautiful, alluring blonde woman with links to the CIA disappears from the scene of a brutal murder at a downtown luxury hotel, Lindsay's life begins to unravel. Before she can track down the woman for questioning, a plane crash plunges San Francisco into chaos, and Lindsay's husband, Joe, vanishes. The deeper she digs, the more Lindsay suspects that Joe shares a secret past with the mystery blonde. Thrown into a tailspin and questioning everything she thought she knew, Lindsay turns to the Women's Murder Club for help as she tries to uncover the truth.
Filled with pulse-pounding international intrigue, 15th Affair proves that all is fair in love, war, and espionage.

I would give the main character back her testosterone!
It is so full of out of place cliche's to the point of annoying. And the lead character who used to be a great San Francisco cop is not nothing more than a whiney soap opera character. Nothing can save this book...and I read all 14 previous books and liked every one of them.
Way to far fetched. No real story depth with plane crash. Relationship with Joe makes her a 1950s wife- needy and forgiving. Also not much of a mom character. Good bye Murder Club.
Tell us about yourself!
This is a typical Patterson story. It does hold your interest . It is a nice way to pass the time.
Voracious reader who loves fiction -- mostly SciFi, crime novels, mystery and suspense.
I can't believe I didn't like this one, but I didn't. It was formulaic and overly-dramatic in the same way that Scooby-Do mysteries unfold: Begin with the crime that will be solved; introduce the Women's Murder Club by getting them together at their favorite bar; clues unfold while Lindsay's personal life starts unraveling and she asks herself a succession of questions. Why haven't I ever noticed that Lindsay's inner dialogue is 3 questions? What could be the point of that? Who else might have seen this pattern in the previous 14 books?
I felt it was the overly dramatic interpretation in the narration that pointed out this weakness in the writing. (Also: Yuki and Cindy sounded like squeaky airheads, not strong characters in the life of a strong woman.) The abrupt ending --left open with a question mark-- makes me think our authors simply don't care any longer.
