Summary

Detective Lindsay Boxer has finally married her long-time boyfriend Joe. But she doesn’t even have time for a honeymoon before returning to work and a traumatic case. A 15-year-old girl is found lying unconscious in the street, naked but for a cheap plastic raincoat, and haemorrhaging badly after having given birth within the last 36 hours. But the baby is nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile Yuki Castellano is trying a case against a woman accused of killing her husband. The evidence is overwhelming and Yuki is certain of winning a conviction. But the accused is a renowned heart surgeon and her attorney specialises in criminal defence of the wealthy. This case might not be a straightforward as Yuki had hoped.

Lindsay and Yuki’s close friend and fellow member of the Women’s Murder Club reporter Cindy Thomas is investigating a terrifying story. Two women have reported recent sexual assaults, but neither can remember anything of the attacks. Are these two incidents linked? Will this be the start of a string of attacks? Cindy is determined to uncover the truth, but her headstrong approach can lead her straight into danger.

This book I’d right back on form after a dip I felt in book 6. Couldn’t stop listening.

The Woman's Murder Club books are Brilliant

I always look forward to the next Murder club mystery and
Carolyn McCormick brings it to life.
I have read all of the series and now I love listening to Carolyn reading them to me and my Husband on long journeys around the country.
Looking forward to the next one.
Yours Carol Harrison.

about the book

this is a 10th book about women's murder club and as usual it was fantastic! i love those stories about Lindsay and her friends. it is so easy to listen to, whatever i do. i dont want to realise what this book is about, but i loved the ending! kind of predictable though but i still like it. i would recommend the whole series to everyone! im really not looking forward to the end of it... please James Patterson keep writing!

Plot predictable and characters stagnant.

I really enjoy the Women's Murder Club series, and this book delivers just as expected.
That's both a positive and negative. Great performance and overall story, but the plot is somewhat predictable and the characters are not developing. The DA, Yuki Castellano, is possibly the worst lawyer under the sun and still receives promotions. Pity they killed off the first lawyer. The relationships are also far too fairytale and perfect, with all the women in the club paired off with their knight in shining armour within 1 book, aka overnight. Won't read the series further, but thanks for the stories to date.

Weak and forgettable

This is the first book I have read in this series, so perhaps I needed some history to feel some empathy for the characters. I'm afraid I found all of them extremely bland, and all similar to each other. OR it may be the narrator's attempted voice inflections, which to be honest I thought plain annoying. OR it may be that I have just finished reading Steig Larsson's "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" series and everything else pales into insignificance.
