Publisher's Summary

The 2nd novel in James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series. When a little girl is shot on the steps of a San Francisco church, Detective Lindsay Boxer reconvenes the Women's Murder Club. Working with reporter Cindy Thomas, assistant DA Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay tracks a mystifying killer who quickly turns his pursuers into victims.

The unorthodox allegiances of the Women's Murder Club lead them to suspect the unexpected - the killer may be an ex-cop. But nothing prepares them for the demented logic behind his choice of victims.

Liked it

Yep, a good second.
And I didn't mind the narrator this time. Her performance was so much better.
I look forward to party 3

2nd chance

Another great story, Pat Starr as narrator makes it shine. Converted from a dedicated paperback reader to an audible listener in 4 stories

you need a different narrator

loving the books and series but your narrator is pronouncing words wrong and when she reads sentences wrong it makes understanding what the story line difficult. I hope she isn't the read for the rest its making the book hard to get through. sad for James Patterson.

Some concerns

I listened to the first one of this series and enjoyed it. This one not so much, a few technical flaws in the book and the character started to grate on me. I will try the third one a bit later in the future

Good story, terrible voice acting

I enjoyed the story itself, but hated the voice acting; it was incredibly hard to lose yourself in the action when the voices were flat and the gunfire sounds are just weird. Shame - I think I'll stick to reading the next one!

Fantastic!!

Wow what can I say!

I'm about to download number three so from that you can gather that I loved this book! I found it well read and easy to listen too and I felt invested in what was going on with the main characters!

James Patterson is so easy listening

I like the way you can listen to a James Patterson book so easily and you can get so engrossed that before you know it, you've finished your book.
The narrator let's it down though.

Excellent

A thrilling and interesting story, parts of it really keep you in the edge of your seat and can be intense and you can't help but want to listen to more. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

James Patterson's women murder club books are excellent. They are narrated really well too. Brilliant
