The Women's Murder Club takes on two deranged killers, but Detective Lindsay Boxer begins to wonder if the mysterious case is also breaking apart her closest friendships.
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 deranged killers on the loose Detective Lindsay Boxer calls on the Women's Murder Club to help her stop the insane killers. But someone is leaking information to the press-details that only those on the inside could know. As allegations fly that Lindsay is the source, she has to wonder: how much she can trust her closest friends?

    Another fine piece of journalism by James Patterson. Easy to read, real page turner. Once you start it, you will not want to put it down.

    Nice to see the continuation and growth of the characters. Always enjoy the interaction of the Women's club characters both on professional and personal levels.

    The early books written by James Patterson were his best work. While the new stories are entertaining, they lack detail and depths.

    Per Usual, James Patterson has spun another suspense filled story packed with action, romance and who done it. He was born to entertain and it shows in every word!!

    This book is one of 9 in the series... If you haven't read the first 8 you will be lost and think this book is boring. If your going to start reading James Patterson start from the beginning people. First impression is everything and if you start in the right place he will get you hooked!! This was a great book and I can't wait for the next one... Nice twist the ending was weird.
