Detective Lindsay Boxer is jogging along a beautiful San Francisco street when a fiery explosion rips through the neighborhood. A townhouse owned by an internet millionaire is immediately engulfed in flames, and when Lindsay plunges inside to search for survivors, she finds three people dead. An infant who lived in the house cannot be found, and a mysterious message at the scene leaves Lindsay and the San Francisco Police Department completely baffled.Then a prominent businessman is found murdered under bizarre circumstances, and another message is found as well. Lindsay asks her friends Claire Washburn of the medical examiner’s office, Assistant DA Jill Bernhardt, and Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to help her figure out who is committing these murders and why the killer is intent on murdering someone every three days.

Even more terrifying, the killer has targeted one of the four friends who call themselves the Women’s Murder Club.

Quotes & Awards

  • “From the start, Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series has felt like high-concept TV with a smart edge, featuring an appealing and reliable cast of four female crime busters who race along byzantine plot lines humming with blood and sex, romance and heartbreak. But Patterson is an author who will detonate readers’ presumptions for the sake of story, and in the series’ third installment, the prolific author, working with frequent collaborator Gross, defies expectations in a shocking way. Readers will love him for it…There’s a calculated feel to all that happens, but clever manipulation of an audience serves Patterson as well as it served Hitchcock: his fans will only clamor for more.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried…There’s no stopping his imagination.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Carolyn McCormick’s performance strikes the right balance of professionalism and horror in Boxer’s first-person account. McCormick portrays the detective as both detached investigator and sensitive woman, those qualities fighting for dominance in each area of her life. Other characters also receive careful attention, with a light touch of regional accent here and there to polish their personalities. Occasional muted sound effects and musical interludes enhance the performance.”


  • “A solid thriller.”

    Daily Telegraph (Australia)

  • “James Patterson has evolved and refined a medium of his own: the crime thriller that moves faster than a book but not quite as fast as an hour of television. Does it keep you reading? I found I couldn’t stop, in an obsessive-compulsive way.”

    Sydney Morning Herald

  • “Another page-turner from the masters of the very short chapter with a surprise twist. In a word: thrilling.”

    Herald Sun (Australia)

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A #1 USA Today Bestseller

    " I have read all the Womens Murder Club books to date and have enjoyed them too maybe not as much as the Cross Books but almost. The charecters include women of power and prestige and they are well respected in their communities. A good read and can enjoy no matter of your sex. Almost as good as Agatha Chrisie. "
