As San Francisco's most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching - waiting for a chance to take vengeance on Isa and Ethan Bailey, the city's most celebrated couple. Finally, the killer pinpoints the ideal moment, and it's the perfect murder. Not a trace of evidence is left behind in their glamorous home.

As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the high-profile murder, someone else is found brutally executed--a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless. His death nearly falls through the cracks, but when reporter Cindy Thomas hears about it, she knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been quite as saintly as everyone thought.

As the hunt for two criminals tests the limits of the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and her partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women's Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built? The exhilarating new chapter in the Women's Murder Club series, The 8th Confession serves up a double dose of speed-charged twists and shocking revelations as only James Patterson can. And remember, this is the only Murder Club episode of the year. Download and start listening now!

    " Having read all the JD Robb in Death series I really felt this was a lesser copy, with very similar characters.. Nowhere near as much depth either in plot or characters and left feeling pretty disappointed... If you want to read a murder thriller go for the JD Robb and don't bother with this series. "

    " A quick read and engaging story with likable heroines. Good vacation book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aisha | 1/19/2014

    " i didn't like the writer's style of writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndsie | 1/16/2014

    " This one was my least favorite! I rolled my eyes through most of it...couldn't wait for it to end and I couldn't wait to bring it back to the library "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Hess | 1/14/2014

    " As with all of Patterson's books, this was an extremely quick-moving novel. It captured me from the get-go and didn't let go until the end. With that said, there was some element missing. I wasn't as excited by the story line as I was in 7th Heaven. The choice of weapon, while intriguing, wasn't executed in the story line as I would have liked. To summarize, this one was just "okay," but not near the caliber I've come to expect from Patterson. In fact, this is the first of this series that I am not giving a 4/5 rating to. *sigh* Here's to hoping the 9th one will resume the excitement. "

    " WOW... action packed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn Rodewald | 12/28/2013

    " The Women's Murder Club books are quick and enjoyable reads. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for quick/uncomplicated mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 12/15/2013

    " Another good book in the series. It seemed shorter than the others and I think I'd like to see just one story line go in depth, than 3 'fluffier' lines. The different stories were all good, it just seemed like they could have been taken further. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerri | 11/28/2013

    " Ehh, not very exciting. You basically already knew the ending at the beginning of the book, which didn't leave much to the imagination. I wasn't very impressed with this Patterson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Tuell | 10/14/2013

    " a very quick read. the story continues with the ladies as they try to figure out who is killing rich people. maybe lindsay can finally choose between rich and joe? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 8/18/2013

    " This book seemed a bit different to me than some of the others. The whole element of snakes was so freaking creepy that I hesitated reading too much before bed. I'm not a fan of dreaming of snakes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 7/24/2013

    " I've been wanting to read a James Patterson for a while. Now I'm wondering why. Pretty much a pulp thriller without any substance geared toward what the author thinks women want to read. Life is too short for books this fluffy... "

    " I enjoyed this as much as any James Patterson book...a good quick read...not as suspenseful as some of his others but still fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 5/15/2011

    " The one exception to my statement about James Patterson's co-authored books not being as good as his own - this series is really fun and the characters are well wrought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 5/13/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/4/2011

    " This was a good continuation to the series. It was a little predictable but still had a good plot line and it was quick to read and kept me interested. The first mention of "WCF" got me a little confused, but it was easy to figure out by the second time I saw it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nana | 5/4/2011

    " Overworked. Lindsey is after the "Lipstick" killer and a cat burglar who killed one of the victims. "

    " Fab! Read in a day! "

    " I haven't read a murder club mystery in a while. I really enjoyed it. A good beach read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meshe/Michelle | 5/2/2011

    " the best thing I can say about this book is that I enjoyed finishing it up while laying on the beach watching the waves and feeling the gulf breezes.
    too many coincidences and not enough meat in this one. Hope #10 is better. If it isn't, I'll probably give up on this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheri | 5/1/2011

    " I thought this book was written very well, loved the suspense in the WCF killer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 4/28/2011

    " though i would not rate this as one of the greater womans murder club books it was still a page turner. this story line keeps you wanting more. patterson could have added more to the story line. it was alot leading up to nothing! even though i was disappointed i am anxiously awaiting #10! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 4/26/2011

    " Great read per norm for the Womans Murder Club... fast and fascinating! "

    " I am a sucker for Patterson's Women's Murder Club series and this one delivered! Very suspenseful, easy reading. Not for the faint of heart, though.
