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 killer hasn't left a shred of evidence, except for a foreboding and cryptic message: WCF, the letters written in blood-red letters.

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? Download and start listening now!


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.”


  • Those who haven't read any of the novels in the Women's Murder Club series are cheating themselves. BookReporter.com
  • McCormick's versatile range and vocal skills portray lead Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich Conklin, with decisiveness, and even a love interest. She perfectly renders their commitment to work the homeless case on personal time. Add meth labs, drugs, and poisonous snakes-and McCormick delivers a high-octane thriller that won't disappoint.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Elise | 2/16/2014

    " I love this series and the majority of the book was good, but it wrapped up a little too quickly and seemed very rushed at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebecca | 2/7/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoy this series. If I need a fast paced guaranteed entertaining read I pick up a James Patterson book. The funny thing is you would never know that James Patterson is a hilarious man based on the topics of his books and author picture. I was fortunate to meet him several years ago at a book signing. Keep the books coming!! "

    " A fast read, but not nearly as good as others he has written. Unless you are reading the series, don't bother. "
