Publisher's Summary

The Fourth of July

In a late-night showdown after a near-fatal chase, San Francisco police lieutenant Lindsay Boxer has to make an instantaneous decision - and sets off a chain of events that leaves a police force disgraced and an entire city divided. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay and her friends in the Women's Murder Club battle for her life on two fronts: before a judge an jury as her trial comes to a climax, and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth.

The Fifth Horsemen

It is a wild race against time as Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer and the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, attorney Yuki Castellano, lead an investigation into a string of mysterious patient deaths and reveal a hospital administration determined to shield its reputation at all costs. While the hospital wages an explosive court battle that grips the entire nation, the Women's Murder Club hunts for a merciless killer among its esteemed medical staff.

The 6th Target

While Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano prepares to prosecute the toughest trial of her life, the city is in the grip of a chilling crime spree. Children of well-to-do families are being abducted. But the kidnappings are followed by devastating silence -no demand for ransom. Working frantically with her new partner, Lindsay Boxer struggles to find the connection that will help them make sense of these horrific crimes.

    "Three mediocre novels for the price of one"

    This volume contains three short novels in the Women's Murder Club series (Books 4,5 and 6). The first novel in this group (#4) is good and books five and six are pretty bad. Nevertheless, all three keep you interested and for a long drive, these books are worth considering.

    "Decent for the money but not terrific"

    Three books, the first I thought was very good and even the second was decent - the trial, developmenet of a new character, etc. The third, book 6th in the series was TERRIBLE. It seemed to me that it was two stories mushed poorly into one book. The ferry shooting and subsequent trila were needless. I found myself fast forwarding through most of those sections. On their own perhaps an interesting story but it felt like it was supposed to become something and didn't. I enjoy mystery and thriller and not so much courtroom dramas. The kidnappings were far more interesting and if that story line hadn't been broken up with the other silliness it would have been better. It's a part of the series so you should read it if you're already 5 in but I'm about to buy the next one and I hope it's better. I hope this doesn't go the way of Alex Cross and get so wrapped up in the personal over developed dramas of the characters that the mystery part falls second.

    "Too short!"

    I didn't realize that these were ABRIDGED versions of the original books and was very disappointed when I found that out. If I had known that ahead of time, I would have waited to get the unabridged versions.

    "Good Story. Fair Narration."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The only thing that I would change would be the narrator. The story is fine, but the narration left much to be desired.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the fact that three books were included for the price of one.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator just didn't have the ability to clearly differentiate her vocal tone between characters. I guess I am spoiled by Susan Eriksen who narrates the J.D. Robb "In Death" series.


    Do you think Women's Murder Club Box Set, Volume 2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There are several more follow up books to this set.

    I always love the plots of the mysteries and the way he gets into their personalities and is having them grow with each story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lysnsey,because she is always acting like such a tough cop but deep down we see her soft side showing more and more.


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her emphasis on the emotions of the characters she really seems to nail them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How will the girls catch the bad guy now?The way they always do (Team Work)

    "Fun for girls clubbers and mystery buffs"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend the books. Clear, right-minded, not-evasive but not noir, either. Good characters and classic fun with mystery vocablulary and dynamics.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes and no. I was excited and interested, but am rarely on the edge of my seat. I had full faith that my heroines would get the bad guy and make it thru ok...sort of Nancy Drew for Grownups :-D


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    I like her voice pitch and will look for other books she reads. Clear but not annoying, expressive, but not hammy or amateurish in her effort to make our listening the best. Some book readers tire me - she did not tire me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were three stories. I felt very sad when their friend's mother died. Bad. Delighted at the romance development. And glad when the sleuths got their man/woman.


    Any additional comments?

    I am new to audible and thrilled! Thanksomuch!
