Publisher's Summary

A psychopathic killer targets San Francisco’s most innocent and vulnerable

A young mother and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down while returning to their car in the garage of a shopping mall. There are no witnesses, and Detective Lindsay Boxer is left with only one shred of evidence: a cryptic message scrawled across the windshield in blood-red lipstick.

The same night, the wife of A-list actor Marcus Dowling walks in on a cat burglar who is about to steal millions of dollars worth of precious jewels. In just seconds there is an empty safe, a lifeless body, and another mystery that throws San Francisco into hysteria.

Before Lindsay and her friends can piece together either case, one of the killers forces Lindsay to put her own life on the line – but is it enough to save the city?

    "Big disappointment"

    Perhaps my mistake was to listen to Stieg Larsson's excellent Millennium trilogy immediately before Patterson's/Paetro's jointly-written 9th Judgement, but while the former is a gripping experience from first page to last (all 64 hours of it) superbly read by Saul Reichlin, the latter unfortunately is a huge disappointment. I would never argue that Larsson's heroine is remotely believable, but the characters in his three books are very well-drawn, the storylines are complex and engaging, and everything comes together to a satisfying conclusion. The 9th Judgement however is full of unbelievable and ill-defined characters with whom it is almost impossible to empathise, and it has a storyline that one of your other reviewers described accurately as "repulsive". There is a lack of cohesion about the whole piece, and the finale is weak. There is also a complete section after the main denouement that seems as though it's just been bolted on for no apparent reason. The use of music at many stages in the reading is distracting and inappropriate, and is quite unlike the effective use of music in Audible's unabridged version of Frank Herbert's "Dune" (another great audiobook). I'll try another Patterson book from Audible in due course since he is clearly a much better writer than is evidenced here, but it won't be from this Women's Murder Club series. I really wanted to like this book when I downloaded it, but I'm afraid it just didn't work for me.

    "9th Judgement (Unabridged)"

    I was very disappointed with this audio book for a number of reasons. First, the narration was over dramatic and slightly wooden. Second, the story is poor and finally the sound effects are very distracting and out of place. Not a book to be recommended.

    "Just get a divorce, people!"

    I was seriously disappointed by this audiobook.

    First of all, if your husband beats and rapes you and you'd rather be with your lesbian g/f anyway, JUST GET A DIVORCE! No need to become a cat burglar first.

    Second, if you're tired of your wife or husband and would rather be with somebody else's wife or husband, BOTH JUST GET A DIVORCE! No need to shoot the wife.

    As for the main serial killer plot, it's quite horrid and shocking, but that's about it. It's not particularly clever or entertaining, it's just repulsive.

    Also, this audiobook has some very strange sound effects. I guess it's supposed to heighten the suspense, so every time something dramatic happens, this weird music will start playing. Sorry, but it just doesn't work.

    I wouldn't bother with this.

    "Is this a joke?"

    Utter rubbish. The plot is absurd, the characters absurd also. I gave up half way - I just couldn't take it any more.

    "Enjoyable"

    Just finished this book - a good listern - nice characters and a good double plot. will certainly try another. The narator was easy to listern to and was able to distinguish the different characters even though there was an underlying sameness but not enough to make it a problem. Would recommend

    "A good read"

    Not a very complicated plot but gripping so I wanted to listen to it eagerly every chance I got. If you like James Patterson then I'm sure you will enjoy this one.

    "A good listen."

    I liked this book - great characters and story. Fifth star withheld because I don't like background music!
