James Patterson brings the Women’s Murder Club back to the pages in the suspense thriller 8th Confession.
The Plot of 8th Confession:
“As San Francisco’s most glamorous millionaires mingle at the party of the year, someone is watching-waiting for a chance to take revengeance 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 test the limits of the Women’s Murder Club, Lindsay sees sparks fly between Cindy and Lindsay’s partner, Detective Rich Conklin. The Women’s Murder Club now faces its toughest challenge: will love destroy all that four friends have built?”
Now although this book was well written and interesting as all the others I wasn’t so drawn towards this book. The plot was good but it didn’t grab my attention. I found myself reading more about what was going to happen with Lindsay, Rich, Joe, and Cindy.
But as always James Patterson brings the characters great depth. I liked that Lindsay still faces a hard choice on who to choose and she finally does but will this still be a problem in the next book.
The next book is not out yet but I am waiting to find out what happens in the next installment of the Women’s Murder Club.
