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).

Wow!!!! This series is PHENOMENAL!!!!!

Each book in The Women's Murder Club series gets better and better. This is by far the best series I have read. James Patterson is a master storyteller and has me hooked from the first page. I couldn't stop listening to this book. I highly recommend this book. I actually recommend the entire series. You will not be disappointed, this book is definitely worth a credit. Just be warned, once you start this be prepared to not want to put it down.

Not the strongest of the Women 's Murder Book

This is not my favorite of this series. The murder mystery and plot line for me was getting tiring through out the book.

Great Narration - Slow-paced Story

4 out of 5 Hearts

Great Narration - Slow-paced Story

In this fifth installment of James Patterson's Women's Murder Club, The 5th Horseman, we find Lindsay in the middle of some gruesome, and mysterious happenings even at the hospital. Somewhat slower paced than the previous installments, it is still a great addition to the series. We even have a new member in the Women's Murder Club.

Well-written with descriptive scenarios twisting and embarking on Great Narration - Slow-paced Story journey that I found to be intense and suspenseful, they grabbed my heart with a déjà vu feeling... Been there.. done that! Heart wrenching!!

I Love the world though, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area... Identifiable! Makes it all
the more pleasurable. IMHO!

Carolyn McCormick is quite a narrator, I enjoy listening to her voice differentiations between the characters. How she can keep them straight is beyond me. You Go Girl!

All on all, I found this to be a 4 out of 5 Hearts. Bring on #6💥The 6th Target.

Bad medicine

write what you know and if you don't know ask. This author writes that a chacter fell unconscious and her protagonist felt for a carotid while checking the second hand on her watch. in an emergency don't check your watch when you're checking to see if someone has a pulse and a doctor can't diagnose an unconscious patient with a DIA if the patient is still unconscious. an unconscious patient is by definition not having a transient ischemic attack. you can't even diagnose a stroke in a patient who is unconscious on arrival to the ER. if the author is this bad with the medical part of the story how believable can he be with the police part the story?

Wasn't Who I thought it would be

What made the experience of listening to The 5th Horseman the most enjoyable?

I love the twists and turns all the books have taken so far. I love the fact that each book builds on itself and you get to feel like you know each character and are a friend.

Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormack’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoy Caollyn's voice sometimes people have a voice that just doesn't fit with the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but unfortunately life doesn't let you do that.

Got many simple facts so wrong

I found many simple facts about how hospital's work so incorrect it was hard to listen to the book. Little details that were incorrect that could have been prevented if there was even the slightest bit of research.
I was disappointed in the end as well. The story just seemed to stop...
