Publisher's Summary

For every secret....

Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

For every lie....

At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life - a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?

There's a different way to die....

Lindsay's every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family.

With James Patterson's white-hot speed and unquenchable action, 10th Anniversary is the most deliciously chilling Women's Murder Club book ever.

Crack another case with the Women's Murder Club.

I like Carolyn McCormick as a Narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, because if you have read any of the Murder Club Mysteries you would know that it is an easy listen but not a waste of time.

If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro before, how does this one compare?

It's better than average but not very good.

Could you see 10th Anniversary being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This is an excellent question. I think Mary McCormack would be great as Lindsay Boxer, Cindy Thomas should be played by Hayden Pannettiere, Claire Washburn could be Delia Parmalee if she weren't so young and fit or if it were for screen Viola Davis(?) , Kristi Yamaguchi should get her acting debut as Yuki Castellano....well maybe not but thought it was a fun suggestion. Seriously what about Hayley Kiyoko playing Yuki or Laurel Yeung ?Regarding the men...they are much more difficult to cast.

Any additional comments?

I am still thinking about which actors to cast in the male roles ;)

Women's Murder Club Is Like The Energizer Bunny...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It just keeps going, and going, and going. But, unlike the silly commercials, it keeps getting better. Patterson's characters take on real-life problems, as well as their work issues. giving the books a feeling of reality.

What did you like best about this story?

Can't say without giving away the story itself.

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

She attempts to use different voices for the different characters.

What's with the background musak????

Would you try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or Carolyn McCormick?

Love, love, love James Patterson. This is my first time trying as an audible book and I'm pretty sure I'll never buy another. The background Musak is driving me crazy.

What other book might you compare 10th Anniversary to and why?

Much like the rest of the series.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not a big fan of the voice inflections and have to wonder if the producer came to the same conclusion and decided the MUSAK had to be added to try and distract the listener from them.

Any additional comments?

I suffer from single sided deafness and the periodic music overlay just kills it for me. Having hearing only in one ear I have to rely on that one ear (which has some low decible hearing loss also) to listen to my books. I'm now using a hearing aid for the good ear which has a feature which enables me to receive audio signals from various devices directly in the aid. However there's no technology available that will counter the streaming of music and voice sound simultaneously without them both coming in at the same volume. Even the sample gave me no idea they'd be periodically streaming music on top of the dialogue. What a waist story seems pretty good so far just wish I'd purchase the Kindle version instead.

OK, but I hate the legal errors

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Most of my friends would be upset by the legal errors. The authors have not bothered to ask a lawyer or judge how trials work. They use the wrong jargon and it is apparent they do not know what they are writing about when it comes to that. Performances are strong, story is interesting, but marred.

Great Time-Killer

James Patterson (and his various writing partners) is the master of the short chapter that ends with a few sentences which drag you into the next chapter even if you really need to get to work, get to bed or get a life.

I've read all The Women's Murder Club books but this is the first time I've ventured into the audible work for my fix. Sort of like seeing the movie after reading the book - I didn't much care for the performer's interpretation of some of the characters.

The breathless, valley girl-ness of Carolyn McCormick's "Cindy" was like a fingernail on a blackboard at first. I never grew to LIKE it but I did manage to hear it without a grimace. And if Lindsey's partner's voice got any lower it would fall off the charts altogether. In fact, none of the characters sounded like real people...or anyone you'd want to know anyway.

The story was good, though, and the character development continues to be interesting. Just the thing for a morning walk or a long hot bath.
