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).

    "NOT JUST ANOTHER GOOD ONE"

    James Patterson's "Ladies" come together again. This time with entangled plots which never became entangled. If you must interrupt the flow ,you must immediately get into it again. I was immersed, involved, challanged and captivated. The narration was splendid. Want mystery adventure? It lives here.

    "Not so good"

    This book was a big letdown. The ending left a huge loose end that was tied up in about 3 minutes of the epilogue which might be ok in some situations. But in this case, that loose end was the most compelling plot point.

    Other than that, what are the odds of your main characters being a lawyer, detective, medical examiner and journalist all in a crime novel? Pretty good right? Now what are the odds of them all being best friends? That's how it is in this one. Eh.

    In any event, I'd leave this one alone if I had the chance to do it again.

    "Entertaining"

    I am a huge James Patterson fan and I love the Women's Murder Mystery Club. I felt this book to be missing something though (I am not sure what). It felt a little hurried at the end as if to wrap things up too quickly.

    Overall I enjoyed it - although I am glad I was listening to it, as I am not sure if I would have made it through it if I was reading it.

    "They just get better"

    Usually the 5th book of a series is not as good as the previous 4, but not in this case. Patterson does a really good job developing the characters to the point where we really feel as if we know everyone personally. My only complaint is that the story wrapped up awfully quick.

    "Engrossing; Filled with Suspense!"

    I found this book gripping. There were twists and surprises right up to the very end. I couldn't wait for the opportunity to turn on my iPod and continue listening to this story!

    "Just Not good! Cookie Cutter!"

    I have read or listened to many of James Patterson's books and like Michael Connelly, its time for some new characters and story-lines. The only thing I enjoy about his books now are the references to SF where I used to live.

    "Keeps You Guessing!"

    James Patterson has a way of throwing you off the trail of the real "culprit"....I was anxious to get to the end to find out the identity of the "Nightstalker" only to find out I had already guessed it! The "Fifth" in the series was just a little bit disappointing....I felt Patterson failed to tie up a few loose ends that he had introduced in the book. All and all a good listen and I will continue with the series.

    "The Murder Club"

    Overall good series, however The 4th of July was my favorite.
    Lindsay and her friends are a fun listen... even through all their trials and tribulations.
    I never was able to finish...... no...... "start" book 2.... the narrator was just terrible. She put me to sleep (with boredom, of course.)
    Books 1, 3, 4 and 5 were fun and kept me listening.
    If you buy the series, good luck with Book 2!

    "Intriguing"

    I'm not a huge fan of "The Women's Murder Club", but this book had my attention form beginning to end - where I was somewhat surprised.
    An enjoyable, at times tense mystery with great characters.
