About this deal

Smart characters, shocking twists' Lisa Gardner'Lots of clever links in the breakneck plot' Cork Evening Echo'This crime drama races along in short, action-packed chapters' My Weekly______________The Sunday Times bestsellerA city in flames and a trail gone cold . While CIndy refuses to stand down, the killings continue and Blackout begins a deadly game of cat and mouse with Boxer and the others. Another member of the Women’s Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, is prosecuting a difficult case involving the brutal beating of a woman by her husband. The characters a came across as quite one dimensional and I struggled to connect with them or feel anything towards them. This has Detective Boxer and her team quite confused, even more so when a mysterious message reaches her from someone claiming to be Blackout, a fan of Burke’s murders.

She loves yoga, jazz music and, like her friend Lindsay Boxer, loves to read travel books and mysteries—she's even a member of a book club. I am always thrilled to get approved for early copies of his books, so a massive thank you to Random House UK for feeding my addiction. Examples include Lindsay dealing with her stress as a police officer and working through them with her counselor. Soon thereafter, a body is found and the victim has been killed in a way very similar to one of the Evan Burke murders described in the book. With an attentive husband, a job she loves, plus best friends who can talk about anything from sex to murder, things couldn't be better.Those who have read any of the prior entries in this series will be in for a treat as they get to spend more quality time with these leading ladies, all of whom are in fine form here. Fast paced, with plenty of action, Patterson's usual short, choppy chapters (which I love), it included Yuki Castellano - top lawyer - and Claire Washburn - the city's ME - alongside Cindy and Lindsay. The hunt for Cindy who could be the next victim, is on, leaving Detective Lindsay Boxer on guard and leaving no rock unturned. Her fellow members of the Women’s Murder Club – Lindsay, Yuki, and Claire – show up to support her and indulge in a celebratory dinner afterwards.

Not only is the name creepy, he is following in the footsteps of the infamous and imprisoned serial killer Evan Burke. I’m sure a fan would dispute this and maybe there were subplots drifting over from previous books or hidden amoungst the words, but sadly this book was just dull. As the most powerful family in California, Jenny has all the tools at her disposal to solve her father’s murder. On a personal level, I must admit that his Women’s Murder Club series – focused on the professional and personal lives of four women in San Francisco - has been very hit and miss over the last couple of years with more weak outings than not.After Jenny Wolf’s father is murdered, the thirty-six-year-old suddenly becomes in charge of a multi-billion-dollar empire and a family that makes the Roys in Succession and the Duttons in Yellowstone seem tame.

Her performance of original songs at open-mic night at the Cat’s Paw Saloon downtown transfixes Ethan Blake, back-up musician for country star Ruthanna Ryder. Century's diverse non-fiction list includes Sunday Times bestseller Ross Kemp and autobiographies from major celebrities such as Rod Stewart, Peter Kay, Dawn French, James Corden, Eric Clapton and David Jason, and a broad range of exceptional non-fiction writing from authors such as Richard Bacon, Duncan Hamilton, and Christopher Sykes. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a James Patterson mega fan girl 😆 I just love his books, with their short and punchy chapters, characters that feel like family now and killers that you can’t wait to get what is coming to them. THE 23rd MIDNIGHT by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro kicks off with an intense sequence of events and never lets up.Your payment method will be charged immediately, and the product is expected to ship on or around January 9, 2023. Lindsay and her partner Rich Conklin are tracking this slick perp who seems to be close but always one step ahead. However, overall this is not a strong entry in what used to be a reliably well-done and enjoyable series.
