Publisher's Summary

When a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless is found brutally executed, reporter Cindy Thomas knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been as saintly as everyone thought...

Rich, beautiful, and powerful, Isa and Ethan Bailey were living in the spotlight as San Francisco's perfect couple--until they are found dead in their luxurious home. As the hunt for two criminals tests the skills of the entire Women's Murder Club, sparks begin to fly between Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich Conklin, making it difficult to stay focused on the case. The electrifying new chapter in the Women's Murder Club series, The Eighth Confession serves up the mile-a-minute twists that only James Patterson can deliver.

Good narration but cheesy music

The books themselves are pretty cheesy, but enjoyable. The narrator is great, but the background music in some chapters is super cheesy and distracting. Would be better without it.

Love this series...love the twist on this one

Great story line....great twist at the end. I'm not the biggest fan of love scenes in my murder mysteries but they are few and far between. On to the next...

The women sleuths are at it again

The everyday lives of our intrepid women sleuths should not be read consecutively because after reading eight in a row I now need a break.

James Patterson's short chapters make reading in increments enjoyable. His books are great for people who have little or no time to read. His novel proceeds with breakneck pace and surprises that captivate. A bomb explosion, a serial killer stalking San Francisco's wealthiest residents, the murdered of a beloved homeless person, and a botched jury verdict keep the action alive and make the book a fun read.

When I need a good escape Patterson doesn't fail me and he hasn’t in this book either. The characters have become real and I get to know them a little more with each book, but as I said above, I now need a break. I have to agree with others that they are somewhat formula books.

OK BUT NOT THE BEST ONE

What did you love best about The 8th Confession?

I'm happy Conklin has another interest.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Not my favorite storyline. Took a little longer to finish this one. The pace is sporadic..

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

She does a good job keeping you interested. With a good story she's really great. And if it's just an OK story she still does a good job. She saved this one.

Another Great Story by James Patterson

Any additional comments?

James Patterson did another great job here. He had three different story lines going. You are not sure if they tie together are not. Along with the plots, there were personal story lines going on with three of the main characters. He is just a great author. Really enjoyed the book.

Good book if you enjoyed all the other 7 in series

Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

Lindsey

Any additional comments?

It is a good book, but not great. The story line was good, but at times the narrator read really fast, like in 2x speed and she is just not my favorite.

Love the books but dislike the narrator

The books remain true to form and highly enjoyable. The narrator has a lisp and it gets worse as she gets tired. I mean no disrespect to the woman but it is irritating to listen to. The book is so good one can bear it. If you have to time to read, get the book.

James Patterson The 8th Confession

As always, I really enjoyed this book. James Patterson never lets me down. I never seem to be able to put his books down. Keep them coming.
