Publisher's Summary

Detective Lindsay Boxer is jogging along a beautiful San Francisco street when a fiery explosion rips through the neighborhood. A town house owned by an Internet millionaire is immediately engulfed in flames, and when Lindsay plunges inside to search for survivors, she finds three people dead. An infant who lived in the house cannot be found; and a mysterious message at the scene leaves Lindsay and the San Francisco Police Department completely baffled.

Then a prominent businessman is found murdered under bizarre circumstances, with another mysterious message left behind by the killer. Lindsay asks her friends Claire Washburn of the medical examiner's office, Assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt, and Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to help her figure out who is committing these murders, and why they are intent on killing someone every three days.

Even more terrifying, the killer has targeted one of the four friends who call themselves the Women's Murder Club.

    "Something seemed lacking but overall great story"

    Overall I enjoy this series, but something seemed to be phoned in about this sequel.

    Plot line seemed a bit disheveled but otherwise right online with the usual James Patterson books. Boxer is one of my favorite characters but this one in particular seemed a off from 1 and 2, certain things just seemed to be thrown in there to add volume and not necessarily give any addition to the main characters details. I would recommend this book, but would also say not to expect the same writing style as the first novel in this series.

    "Not My Favorite"

    Not my favorite in this series. A good book overall, the plot was just not something I was interested in.

    "Good, but cheesy music"

    I liked the story and the narrator, but I didn't care for the cheesy little music clips in the background in certain moments of the story.

    "Enjoyed it"

    I enjoy the women's murder club very much. This was another good addition to the series.

    The narrative was good, some cheesy music here & there and the mystery went deeper than expected.

    I'd recommend this series

    "Distracting effects"
    Would you listen to 3rd Degree again? Why?

    Maybe, The music and sound effects were very distracting to me. I would have enjoyed the performance more if it would have been just a narrator.


    Did Carolyn McCormick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    It was difficult to tell the difference between characters during conversations between Clair, Lindsay and Cindy. Also, Jill either does or does not have a southern accent... the in between accent is confusing.

    "couldn't get into it"

    I have enjoyed James Patterson before, so I am pretty sure its not him as much as it is the narrator. I just can't put my finger it on it but I tried it three times and not to much luck, I gave it one star because I didn't get far enough to to rate it,

    "What Trash"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Andrew Gross and/or Carolyn McCormick?

    I am a long time James Patterson reader and Audible listener. I am a fan of Alex Cross and his many challenges. I first listened to this book on tape and that was years ago. I should have taken notes. I remember the opening scene, the explosion and the mayhem and I thought that it might be a winner to listen to again. Once into it, I could not believe that I ever liked it. The characters are unreal and not worthy of Patterson, but worse than that is the preaching: The author/s are hell bent to proselytize in issues such as healthcare and such. Then there is the dialogue. Does anyone believe that women speak or think the way the author/s portray? I could not get bast the first few chapters. I should ask for my money back... Saxon


    What could James Patterson and Andrew Gross have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Figure out how people really talk and think. The author/s seem to out of touch with reality. The heroine, a supposedly hard-nosed member of the law is pathetic. And think about it: she takes her cases to a bunch of other women that belong to the "Women's Murder Club coffee klatch. Is any of this believable?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator did a good job. She related the text as written.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment!
