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.

I would recommend this book. It was little cheesy in places but it was a good read.
Boxer- she is a strong woman succeeding in this man's world.
It was okay.
Yes-it kept you guessing.
This is a good book and a great series-many of his later books in this series are much better.
Anything other than Patterson or this narrator
She makes the female characters sound like morons.
I've been listening to books from Audible for three years and this book was one of the worst pieces fiction I've had the displeasure to read. The book had WAY too much going on from deadly illness, to a crazed serial killer, to the main character's sappy love life. The narrator was extremely boring and I caught myself falling asleep and just wanting it to end. I tried to keep an open mind and finished it but it did NOT get any better through the end. I'm sorry I wasted my time on this one!!
James Patterson is not my favorite author but I do like to occasionally listen to an author that I have not read or listened to for awhile. It was ok. I think another reader may have made it a better overall experience.
It was like I was listing to a movie but no picture!
When Chris died
I could not stop listening to this book and can't wait till I hear the next one.
keeps listener intrigued
male and females sounded the same like Bronx mobsters
Author has been subjected to low quality narration
in the top 20
I have listened to all the Womens murder club books I think the reader makes a big diffrents in wether i want to keep listening to a book
I listen as offten as i can
I was looking for a detective mystery suspense, but got a predictable romance novel with a female lead on female deaths done by a female with graphic descriptions of female mutilations and sexuality. Needless to say, my intended long car ride with my 18 year old daughter while listening to an enjoyable detective mystery was more than uncomfortable for me as a mom. Luckily she slept and I turned it off at the raunchy part. She could predict everything before it happened, also.
Well, I have in the past, but will avoid his work from now on.
Hated the narrator, hated the tone of the book, hated the way the female characters were written. This book was such a disappointment - I couldn't even finish it. The narrator and the narration were incredibly grating and the writing was just awful. Don't waste your time or money.
I read several reviews of this book that were written by people that called the story predictable or stated that they always knew what was going to happen next. All I can say to that is that they are a bunch smarter than I am, be cause I found myself being surprised several times during this story. Maybe that's why Patterson is so popular. I thought the narration was exemplary. Will I get any more books in this series? I don't know, but that's only because there are so many books and so little time.
