After a dramatic shoot out at a ferry dock, Detective Lindsay Boxer is called to the scene to find that three people have been killed, and one of her closest friends, Claire, has been shot and lies bleeding, whilst the murderer is on the run. Lindsay promises Claire that she'll hunt down this killer and bring him to justice, but sadly, it doesn't prove to be so straightforward.
A man comes forward claiming to be the ferry murderer, and Yuki Castellano, one of the Women's Murder Club, prepares to set out the charges against him. But it's not all over; a child has been abducted and is still missing. To increase the mystery and confusion, there are a series of suspicious and unexplained deaths in the building where Cindy lives - yet another of the Women's Murder Club is in danger. Lindsay discovers yet more abducted children, and the hunt begins in earnest to return the children to their parents.

story was OK, not my favourite so far.
although I've struggled listening to the narrator. I don't find her as easy listening, which takes my focus away from the story. other than that I enjoyed it.
No music or sound effects these ruined the Reading of the book
Not sure as I loved the first five but this one has put me off completely I understand that it's not the written word that's put me off but the additional sounds and music love the narrator just feel that they were trying to hard and put additional sounds where they could
I was completely hooked on the women's murder club and was looking forward to the 6th instalment. Unfortunately a change of narrator has completely changed the tone and feel of the series and I am now considering whether I what to persevere finishing the book. The tinny music to introduce each chapter was seriously off putting and as an audio book is more expensive than a physical book this is making me consider whether is it worth it.
I love the women's murder club series and was looking forward to continuing it with number 6. For some reason this seemed to be an older edition than the previous audio books I'd had from this series. It had a different narrator and the names of some of the main characters were pronounced differently which was annoying and the tinny music and echoey chapter announcements were supremely annoying. There was also also some cringey 'sex music' during any romantic scenes. If the next one I buy is like this too I'm not going to us any more!!!
Love the stories and the characters ...
However, do not like the narrator on this one... she has changed the pronunciation of a main characters name and I found it very off-putting, also a word or two ..
"good story line the plot is well developed"
a brilliant plot a story that kept you interested to the end. of the story
"Gentle fun - easy listen"
In the top 25%
Depth to the story, my first Women's Murder Club and will listen to more. Liked the lack of foul language and multiple facets to the book
