Publisher's Summary

Detective Lindsay Boxer fights to protect the streets of San Francisco from an international war criminal in the latest Women's Murder Club thriller.

When three female schoolteachers go missing in San Francisco, Detective Lindsay Boxer must unravel the mystery of their disappearance. But what starts as a missing person case quickly escalates to a troubling murder investigation. 

As pressure at work mounts, Lindsay must rely on her husband, Joe, to support her at home. Yet Joe is pursuing a mysterious case himself, as a woman running from her past brings him terrifying information - the notorious war criminal from her Eastern European home country has appeared on the streets of San Francisco.

As Lindsay searches for the three missing women, a frightening new twist forces her and Joe's investigations to collide. His mystery informant has gone missing, and all four abducted women are in grave danger. As shocking revelations emerge, Lindsay and Joe find themselves caught up in an international crime operation unlike anything they've seen before.  

With the help of her fierce and courageous friends in the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay and Joe fight to save their city from the corrupt clutches of a monster.

Boring

I think Patterson is running out of ideas with the Murder Club books as this one was boring, maybe he needs to concentrate on something else. There was no suspense, you already knew what was going to happen before it happened. There was just not enough happening in the book to keep you interested and could have been finished in one chapter.
Also, the narrator just sounded stupid, I lost concentration most of the time because she was so dull. Probably need to get a new narrator.

mediocre at best

Have read all the Women's murder club book and this one is definitely lacking. None of the interaction of previous books. Sadly, James Patterson is churning the books out and we have quantity and not quality.

Brilliant

Like another reviewer I agreed that I was a little disappointed with the 17th book but this Womens Murder Club 18th Abduction was absolutely brilliant and gripped me from beginning to end. I must say this is the only James Patterson books I read now and I look forward to the stories and the characters.

Quality decreasing

Maybe under the pressure to release the next book in the series (and all the other titles that seem to be released in the meantime) the quality and depth of the stories are decreasing.
The narrator was great as always

I enjoyed this book immensely

I was kept in anticipation with this book.
I just am wondering where Lindsay and Joes baby girl is now?? I have to think I have missed something along the way.
