When a horrifying attack leaves one of the four members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before anyone else is hurt.


And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department run flat-out to stop a series of kidnappings that has electrified the city: children are being plucked off the streets together with their nannies--but the kidnappers aren't demanding ransom. Amid uncertainty and rising panic, Lindsay juggles the possibility of a new love with an unsolvable investigation, and the knowledge that one member of the club could be on the brink of death.


And just when everything appears momentarily under control, the case takes a terrifying turn, putting an entire city in lethal danger. Lindsay must make a choice she never dreamed she'd face--with no certainty that either outcome has more than a prayer of success.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 9/21/2013

    " This one was all right. There were three different story lines that didn't really jive, but I think they were just trying to give all of the characters something to do. Not a bad way to waste a few hours, but if you only read a few books a year...this shouldn't be one of them! "
