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.

The murder investigation has a number of twists and turns which adds to the intrigue
She is a believable murder detective
Good read. Would listen to it again.
Yes, Suspenseful. Just when you thought who done it, wham a new clues comes up and your theory is wrong,
How the girls became friends
She tried. Too many characters for her
I had high hopes for this one! Story: Pretty darn good; seemed a bit predictable, esp. when detective zeroed in on prime suspect, but somewhat surprised in the end.
Too much DRAMA packed into the story! Didn't need to put WEIGHT of the WORLD on one character and the BIGGEST PROFESSIONAL BLUNDER OF ALL TIME on another to make it worth a listen/read.
The CHARACTERS are very INTERESTING and mostly realistic.
The READER was NOT GREAT I would have given her a "1" due to her melodramatic and over-the-top readings of some scenes and--even worse--her ridiculous voice characterizations! (If I were a black woman, I would be seriously offended.) Still, she DID have good pacing and mostly good understanding of the nuances she was reading.
I'm willing to try one more in this series--but ONLY one.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
Conclusion should have included the dog.
Not to this again...
She kept me listening
The woman's murder club. The odd friendships.
What happened to the dog????
Love the story line.Very believable,the reader was fabulous.
She has a great story telling voice that holds your thoughts together.
yes but I savored it into 2 nights
The only thing that I disliked was all the chapters were distracting
This is the 1st book of the Womens Murder Club and I like it. Mostly because it was a good detective story and because I wish this is how women treated each other. I want a murder club. The romance part was weak though, the narrator was good.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I liked the TV show, then saw this book on sale. I will not be buying any more. I do not care for the way he writes women, I really did not care for the narrator, (I did check that this was an older book so maybe she has found her niche) but she was definitely not for this book. She is more of a dramatic, old radio program actor. Read the other bad reviews that I should have listened to.
Classic Patterson! I loved the San Francisco setting it was so easy to visualize where the action is taking place. This is the tale of 4 women combining their talents to bring the bad guy to justice. It shows the cooperation, friendship and bonds that can exhist between women. I enjoyed the listen!
The med exer
The end of course
2hen Chris died
A typical James Patterson book exciting from cover to cover
