A young girl is killed after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career—and her sanity.

While awaiting trial, Lindsay escapes to the beautiful town of Half Moon Bay, but the peaceful community is reeling from a string of unspeakable murders. Working with her friends in the Women’s Murder Club, Lindsay finds a link between these killings and a case she worked on years before—an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay battles for her life on two fronts: before a judge as her trial comes to a climax, and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A rousing fourth installment of the Women’s Murder Club series…Heroic super-sleuthing, a steadily gripping plot line, and 146 snappy chapters add up to suspense fiction euphoria for Patterson’s legion of fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The Women’s Murder Club cranks into full form. Carolyn McCormick drives this fast-paced, high-powered novel right off the printed page into real experience. A whining, pleading injured teen driving with only a learner’s permit is so skillfully presented that danger is ignored; a spinal-cord-injured witness whose sobs are interrupted by the sucking of ventilator-initiated breathing is believable even while demonstrating courtroom theatrics.”

    AudioFile

  • “Patterson’s characteristic brutal murders and elusive killers are present, keeping the stakes high…Even though the Women’s Murder Club itself is consigned to the background, Lindsay’s trial and the murders keep the pages turning.”

    Booklist

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