Summary

The next thrilling instalment in the Women's Murder Club series.

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.

Not really enjoying the new narrator

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.

What’s with the music?

As is always the case, James Patterson writes a great story, but the change of audio Performer has not worked as well as the first 5 books.

I am not keen on the 1980’s style music which has obviously been overlaid after the recording. It’s added at every chapter, and other music plays at various intervals. It is unnecessary and quite frankly, annoying. I hope it doesn’t continue into book 7.

Full of twists and turns

A good story with plenty of action and a couple of twists to boot. Narration took a little getting used to, as was used to Pat Starr. Carolyn seems to pronounce some of the key characters names differently and it took me a while to realise who she was talking about at times. Other than this, very good listening 😊

Enjoyed The Story

James Patterson never disappoints. It took me a while to adjust to the narrator but that's only because i've listened to the first 5 books in this series and Pat Starr was the narrator and she was awful but I got used to it, then I listened to this book whith Carolyn McCormick as the narrator and she was different and better thus it made the listings so much better.

Bring back Pat Star!

I have so far loved all books in this series, but the new narrator and all the dramatic music to introduce each new chapter (of which there are soooo many!) were quite annoying. Didn’t know I was such a Pat Star fan until now! Hopefully I’ll be able to continue with the rest of the series as stories are great.

Definitely up to expectations

The storyline was good and I had to concentrate to keep my place. One criticism would be the narrators Americanised speech, especially Jacobi good job he wasn't in every chapter.

I can't listen to this narrator.

I just can't. I miss Pat's voice narrating. She became the characters and I was able to connect with her and follow the story intently. Not so with this narrator. I'm disappointed.
