Publisher Description

A terrible fire in a wealthy suburban home leaves a married couple dead and Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner Rich Conklin searching for clues. And after California's golden boy, Michael Campion has been missing for a month, there finally seems to be a lead in his case--a very devastating lead.

As fire after fire consume couples in wealthy, comfortable homes, Lindsay and the Murder Club must race to find the arsonists responsible and get to the bottom of Michael Campion's disappearance. But suddenly the fires are raging too close to home.

Frightened for her life and torn between two men, Lindsay must find a way to solve the most daunting dilemmas she's ever faced--at work and at home.

"In the 7th book in The Women's Murder Club series, Lindsay Boxer and her partner Richard Conklin are on the case of the disappearance of Michael Campion, the son of the governor who was born with a congenital heart defect. After several months, an anonymous tip comes in about him being last seen entering the house of a local prostitute. Boxer and Conklin dive in to investigate, and the pretty, young prostitute breaks down in the interrogation and admits to him dying during the deed, and she and her boyfriend/pimp disposed of the body afterwards. But is she telling the truth? Meanwhile, in other parts of the Bay area, the homes of wealthy residents are being burned down by 2 teens who call themselves Pidge and Hawk, with the wealthy residents still inside and trussed up so they can't get away. As a calling card, the boys always leave a book with a Latin phrase written on the title page. After a series of these arson cases happen with no headway made on the culprits, Boxer and Conklin begin to get exasperated, especially because one of the latest homes belonged to Conklin's high school girlfriend's parents. Eventually clues begin to lead them in the right direction, and they finally are able to make an ID on the arsonists, especially after one ends up dead after underestimating the last family they tried to hurt, the Campions. I have to admit, I'm a huge James Patterson fan, especially this series, and this one didn't disappoint. It was an engaging story, and the ending was absolutely head-spinning. Excellent."

Quotes

  • “Gripping…In true Patterson style, the reader is privy to Lindsay’s thoughts as well as the killers’, ratcheting up the suspense an extra notch. Fans won’t be disappointed with the twist at the end that not even Lindsay sees coming.”

    — Publishers Weekly
  • “Carolyn McCormick reads this chilling mystery with just the right touch of suspense. McCormick’s soft-voiced narration delivers an unemotional reading of the horrific crimes perpetrated by the story’s cold-blooded serial killers. In this way, McCormick keeps herself at arm’s length emotionally from the events of the mystery, thereby adroitly increasing its tension and keeping the listener poised for the next piece of the puzzle.”

    — AudioFile
  • “In this, one of the best entries in the Women’s Murder Club series, everything comes together in a neat package that is often gruesome, sometimes funny, but always entertaining. Narrator / Law & Order veteran actress Carolyn McCormick skillfully creates memorable characters in a reading that is professional, is free of theatrics, and adds significantly to the transfer from print to audio. Recommended for all collections.”

    " The book follows the same formula as the other Women's Murder Club books, but this time it didn't seem as if the ladies worked together to solve the mysteries. And finding the two arsonists seemed more lucky than detective work. The book moved along and was easy to read though. "

    " I have to admit I am pretty sad that this is the end of the series. It was a wonderful end to the series, but again, I wish it could go on forever!! It was strange, because this book took me a while to get through this book. I don't know if it was because I didn't want to complete it or if it just wasn't "my favorite" in the series. Anyway, this is a great series!! "

    " I'm kind of bored with this series, though I do enjoy the characters. The stories have become somewhat predictable themselves. Being obsessed with reading everything once I start a series, I'll no doubt continue when more come out. They are fast, easy reads, so why not? "
