Four women - four friends - share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.

But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these women form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand.

1st to Die is the start of a blazingly fast-paced and sensationally entertaining new series of crime thrillers.

    " I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end! i enjoyed the story developement and I loved the introduction of this new wOmens club. 1st to die was a great introduction to this series. another thing I loved was that it wasn't as predictable as a thought it would be. Up until the killer was announced I was guessing and even after I was still shocked in the epilogue! Great summer read..I believe I will definitely be reading more in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana Anderson | 1/21/2014

    " I wanted to like this series, I really did. But, like all James Patterson books, too much, too quick, too over the top. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christi | 11/27/2013

    " The 4 protagonist women in this book are all written the same. Dreadfully boring, predictable characters. Poor writing and plot line twists the reader can foresee. Ugh! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 9/2/2013

    " It was ok. I could definitely tell that it was not written by a woman, which is a shame for a book about 4 females who solve murders together. "

    " Love all James Patterson Novels. Easy reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Alborough | 1/29/2013

    " A quick read , as Patterson books often are ....this one only has his name on the cover so I guess he had no help with it . The story develops quickly and kept my interest throughout , an unexpected ending made this book a memorable one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samra Muslim | 9/17/2012

    " Totally gripping, suspense thiller that has set grounds for the establishment of the Women's Murder Club, while finding the 'honeymoon killer' ... This is the kind of literature that will be loved by both men and women, because it is suspense with emotions !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Baxter | 8/27/2012

    " Its a good mystery series. As the books go on, it becomes increasingly clear that the assistant writers are doing most of the work, and Patterson is stamping his name on it. That's ok with me, because they're still fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 7/5/2012

    " This book really surprised me. It was full of twists and turns. This is the first book in a series of 12 so far. It is just as good as his Alex Cross series. The plot kept me guessing to the point that I wasn't sure who the killer was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hersan | 1/18/2012

    " A story of a detective solving a mind blowing crime. See how 4 girls solve the case of three pair of dead bodies. No doubt that James Patterson is the #1 thriller author. Very Fast pace. Unexpected ending. Please read this book guys. This is he reason why I fell in love in Fast pace thriller books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jody | 9/22/2011

    " it was ok but I felt like just what it is a man writing a woman's part. It just didn't feel authentic. I really didn't feel like I got to know the characters all that well. It wasn't the worst thing I've read but it wasn't anything great either. "
