Publisher's Summary

The Women's Murder Club faces an unspeakable horror in an irresistible hospital and courtroom thriller by #1 best-selling author James Patterson.

SOMEBODY DIES.
A young mother is recuperating in a San Francisco hospital when she is suddenly gasping for breath. The call button fails to bring help in time. The hospital's doctors, some of the best in the nation, are completely mystified by her death. How did this happen?

APOCALYPSE NEARS.
This is not the first such case at the hospital. Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse. Accompanied by the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the incidents. Could these cases just be appalling coincidences? Or is a maniac playing God with people's lives? When someone close to the Women's Murder Club begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.

THE 5TH HORSEMAN RIDES.
It is a wild race against time as Lindsay's investigation reveals a hospital administration determined to shield its reputation at all costs. And while the hospital wages an explosive court battle that grips the entire nation, Lindsay and the Women's Murder Club hunt for a merciless killer among its esteemed medical staff.

The newest addition to the top-selling new mystery series takes the Women's Murder Club to the most terrifying heights of suspense they have yet to encounter. The 5th Horseman proves once again that James Patterson is "the page-turningest author in the game right now" (San Francisco Chronicle).

    "Meh"

    Ok, the latest installment of the Women's Murder Club books gets a 3.5 out of 5 because, like all the Women's Murder Club books, it's too easy to see the ending wayyyyyy off. But I like the character's struggle with how to reconcile her professional life and her love life and the other character's decision that litigation is soul-less after her mother's passing (two things to which I personally relate).

    The narration is great, as usual. The story is acceptable, like most of this series. I like James Paterson, and I find his books to be an escape while I'm doing that annoying commute.

    Overall, I think this fit into the series fine. This series is what got me excited about James Paterson and although Lindsey Boxer is no Alex Cross, she does keep me at least marginally interested in her personal life. Which is more than I can say for most modern detective novels.

    "Horrible narrator"

    I can't get past the terrible narration to see if I could enjoy the book.

    "terrible read"

    i thought this book was poorly researched and written. I have been a murder club fan and had tried to read this to the end. The many inaccuracies in the plot along with poor editing made it quite apparent that there were multiple contributors to this work. the book therefore did not seem to flow freely. I would not recommend this book.

    "Blahhh!"

    Detective, Pathologist, Report and Lawyer all experts in thier feild all Best Friends, ugggh! The characters were annoying, the plot was week the ending was lame. Stay away from this book

    The last few James Patterson books Ive read have been a big disappointment but I wanted to give him one more try. No more JP and his ghost writers for me.

    Its sad that JP has gone the way of resting on his laurels and allowing his name to be put on garbage novels like this. While Grisham , Follet and other authors strive continue to write outstanding novels Years later.

    "Courtoom Drama plus tracking murderers"

    This novel has an interesting, worthwhile set of (2) plots. It includes a striking courtroom drama, and the successful tracking down of 2 sets of murderers.
    The problem with it lies in its writing style. Basically, it seems to be written to appeal to 12 year old girls. It is, at times, nauseatingly girlish. Considering that the plot(s) are strictly for adults, the discrepancy is really disturbing. It is difficult to recommend this book for the usual readers of Audiobooks.

    "Lindsay is my favorite detective"

    Listening to the book in my 11h flight from Europe really helped me to overcome boring movies. I just love the narrator and the main character. The story is fast, not exactly predictable (which is good).
    Recommended for people that like the series.

    "Not his best"

    The 5th book in the womens murder club is not as good as the previous 4. There was very little in this book about the 'women's club' and it focused heavily on Lindsey and Yuki, giving me the feeling that the author is straying from the friendships these women share and the core of what sparked this whole series. A few quick and short chapters and no further developement of the girls. Not as solid as the others and I had more questions than answers at the book's end. I was hoping for more than the book delivered.

    "5th Horseman Not as Good"

    James Patterson had a great thing going with the Murder Club, but he has not used it to its fullest in the last two releases. The plot is weak and doesn't keep you dying to hear the next chapter.

    "commercial"

    I have only given up on 3 books over the last four years. This was one. It wasn't the writing, which was dreadful. Or the story, which was trite. It was the product placements. By the 50% point of the book I had counted over 40 product "mentions". Audible should have a category of "Shamelessly commercial" so that we can avoid this @#@#%$##.
