women's murder club #10
james patterson & maxine paetro
For every secretDetective Lindsay Boxer's
long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is
called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl
is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay
discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals--but that the
victim may be keeping secrets as well.
For every lie
the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is
prosecuting the biggest case of her life--a woman who has been accused
of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's
career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that
could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her
best friend or follow her instinct?
There's a different way to die
every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and
when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new
marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family.
There's always excitement in the Women's Murder Club books. There's so much going on and things are happening so quickly. The stories are believable and yet still crazy enough to keep you reading. I like that they take place in San Francisco because I can easily picture all the scenes in my head.
That being said, Lindsay and Yuki bother me. I don't know why, I can't quite put my finger on it, but they do. It all works out in the end, but they just seem to be completely obnoxious about everything throughout the book.
Oh, and Cindy's pretty much an idiot most of the time. Why is that?!
