During an intimate dinner party, a cat burglar breaks into the home of A-list actor Marcus Dowling. When his wife walks in on the thief, the situation quickly teeters out of control—leaving an empty safe and a lifeless body.

The same night, a woman and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down in an abandoned garage. The only shred of evidence left by the killer is a foreboding and cryptic message: WCF, the letters written in red.

With two elusive criminals on the loose, Detective Lindsay Boxer calls on the Women’s Murder Club to help her stop them before they continue their spree. But before they can break either case, the Lipstick Killer changes his act and demands a ransom—not for a single victim, but for all of San Francisco. Lindsay puts her own life on the line, but will it be enough to save the city from this deranged killer?

Quotes & Awards

  • “With her husky voice, precise articulation, and even cadence, Carolyn McCormick shines as she returns to the series. She fully embraces the primary characters with empathy, giving each one an identifiable voice. Best of all, she completely embodies Lindsey Boxer. Although she occasionally struggles with accents, McCormick’s gritty and sometimes-edgy sound is perfect for suspense thrillers, yet she capably softens her tones for more sensitive scenes.”


  • The 9th Judgment is everything that an outstanding mystery and thriller should be, as it shocks, tantalizes, and teases right up until the very end…Yet another riveting work in a great series.”


  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller

    " Great read. Not the best in the series, by no means, in my opinion that would be 3rd Degree. But, it did have me reading a lot - I barely put the book down, and the some what cliff-hanger ending has me intrigued. Can't wait for the 10th. "
