Publisher's Summary

Four women - four friends - share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.

But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these women form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand.

1st to Die is the start of a blazingly fast-paced and sensationally entertaining new series of crime thrillers.

    "And Make It Quick!"

    The poor narration detracts significantly from an otherwise decent story. (Per the reviews, the Unabridged version is much better.)

    "Good suspense"

    I am a fan of James Patterson, therefore I have an expectation when I read his books. This was a good read. I am normally good at predicting "who done it", this one had a few turns in it which had me thinking a little harder. I enjoy that level of suspense. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a murder mystery.

    "Monotone Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story is great as all J. Patt's are. The narrator is completely monotone and makes the otherwise exciting story very boring. There is absolutely no inflection in her voice at all. Very distracting from the exciting thriller.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Melissa Leo and Dylan Baker ’s performances?

    Not Melissa Leo


    Did 1st to Die inspire you to do anything?

    Listen to the rest as long as Ms Leo isn't narrating

    "Great Story"

    I started watching Womens Murder Club and when I found out this was the book that started it all I wanted to start from the begining. The story was great nice action, very detailed. Story kept you guessing everytime you thought you knew what was going to happen next you were wrong.
