Publisher Description

For every secret

Detective Lindsay Boxer’s long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminal—but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

For every lie

At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life—a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki’s career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?

There’s a different way to die

Lindsay’s every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she’ll ever be able to start a family. With James Patterson’s white-hot speed and unquenchable action, 10th Anniversary is the most deliciously chilling Women’s Murder Club book ever.

"Really good story. Lindsay gets married. She is assigned to a case involving a missing baby. A defense attorney asks her to help prove his client is not guilty and she finds some problems that point to his client's innocence, but there is a claim of sexual abuse of a child. She also helps to rescue her friend from a serial rapist."

Detective Lindsay Boxer must juggle married life and job pressures as she delves into the abduction of an infant and the savage beating of its teenage mother. Meanwhile, Assistant D.A.

    " This series is interesting because of the Women's Murder Club, consisting of the detective, the medical examiner, the district attorney and the reporter. Each one chasing a crime or a trial or a story surrounded by their caring for one another. It works. "

    " As usual with the Women's Murder Club series James Patterson tells more than one story within a book. This time there were three seperate plots, two crime thrillers and a courtroom drama. Of the three stories the courtroom drama was the victor and the story (in comparison to the other two plots) had alot more depth and a decent backstory to it. Infact the two crime stories (Lindsay investigating the disaperance of a baby boy and Cindy investigating a series of rapes) really had no back bone to them at all and there really wasn't that much supense to those stories. This story focused on the realtionships of Lindsay, Cindy and Yuki a bit more than the previous books had, which was a nice change from the book focusing mainly on Lindsay. Infact this story was more about Yuki more than any of the other members of "The Women's Murder Club" and Claire really didn't feature much at all. This is not the best addition to this series but by no means is it the worst either. However the back cover of this book celebrates that it is the 10th anniversary of the publication of the first book in this series and also the 10th book in this series. With that in mind I'm surprised that the story wasn't of better quality than it actually was, especially considering that the publishers and/or authors seemed to make quite a big deal about this 10th anniversary. Also I was a little disapointed with the epilogue because... (POSSIBLE SPOILER COMING UP)... in the epilogue of the last Alex Cross novel there was a hint that a crossover between the Cross novels and this series was on the cards and I waslookin forward to further suggesions of that happening. But alas there was no such suggestion in this book. I hope we are to soon be treated to a crossover between these two great crime series though. "

    " Can't put this down. The Womens Murder Club is always a good read. Fairly predictable but very enjoyable. Usual murder mystery with Lindsey Boxer finally getting married. Its a bit of did she didn't she do it that keeps you in suspense til almost the end. Loving it and almost finished it! "
