Publisher's Summary

Detective Lindsay Boxer is jogging along a beautiful San Francisco street when a fiery explosion rips through the neighborhood. A town house owned by an Internet millionaire is immediately engulfed in flames, and when Lindsay plunges inside to search for survivors, she finds three people dead. An infant who lived in the house cannot be found; and a mysterious message at the scene leaves Lindsay and the San Francisco Police Department completely baffled.

Then a prominent businessman is found murdered under bizarre circumstances, with another mysterious message left behind by the killer. Lindsay asks her friends Claire Washburn of the medical examiner's office, Assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt, and Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to help her figure out who is committing these murders, and why they are intent on killing someone every three days.

Even more terrifying, the killer has targeted one of the four friends who call themselves the Women's Murder Club.

    Story
    "Weird Sound Effects and Distracting Music"

    This is the third book of the Women's Murder Club Series to which I have listened. The first and second installments were fine. This one, however, isn't. It is not the author or narrator that are amiss here. The author is just as brilliant the third time around and, though the narrator is different from either of the first two books, she is on point. What I consider to be wrong with this audio book is the addition of sounds and music. When listening to a book, all I need is decent narration. I do not want either random sound effects or sporadic background music, as are incorporated throughout this audio book. It is off putting and distracting from the story. If I wanted sound effects and music, I would listen to a dramatized story or watch a movie or television program. This story is good and the narrator is very good. Overall enjoyment was severely compromised, though, by the aforementioned unnecessary elements.

    Would you listen to 3rd Degree again? Why?

    No, I very rarely listen to a book twice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The personal aspect he brought into it. I don't want to say much, but it had me in tears.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    The way she can make you get lost in the book by being able to switch characters with ease.


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

    Can't say, just let me put Jill!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book as usual by Patterson, I absolutely love this Women's Murder Club Series!

    "Great Installment! Suspenseful and Action Packed!"

    Rating
    5 out of 5 Hearts

    This is the third installment of The Women's Murder Club, by James Patterson. Oh, I really got into Lindsay's character with this one. Action packed from start to finish. The authors leave nothing out of this multilayered world.

    Full of spine tingling suspense and mysterious twists, I really Loved the background accompanying the narration. It brought the events closer to reality. Great Job.

    I came away with mixed emotions because certain events made me laugh, while others had me in tears, or angry. Audiobooks ~ Gotta Love them!

    I had listened to the 1st and 2nd book of the series but this one I could not follow very well. then before I knew it, it was over. I'm hoping the next one is better.

    "Story good but!"

    I'm sorry to say I thought the reader sounded drunk on several occasions
    I liked the story but I just couldn't stand her
    It wouldn't stop me from listening to the 3rd book in the series but she wasn't very good in this book

    "Good but not my favorite"

    I've been working one book at a time through this series. This book was a dud for me. The performance with all of the music was kind of cheesy. It kept my attention but it def was not as good as the first two. However, if you plan on completing the series you def cannot skip this one.
