About this deal

As the title indicates, this is the 23rd installment in the Women’s Murder Club series, which shows not only the persistence of the authors but also their uncanny ability to keep churning out interesting stories featuring these dynamic characters. 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.

However, overall this is not a strong entry in what used to be a reliably well-done and enjoyable series. Midnight is the twenty third book in James Patterson and Maxine Paetro's Women's Murder Club series and I am always excited when a new title in this series comes out as I have really enjoyed them all. Smart characters, shocking twists' Lisa Gardner'A compelling read with great set pieces and, most of all, that charismatic cast of characters' Sun'I couldn't turn the pages quick enough' Heidi Perks'Terrific, high-octane, really pacy' Jo SpainDetective Lindsay Boxer put serial killer Evan Burke behind bars.All the while, fellow Murder Club vet, Yuki Castellano is, in court, working on a case with its own dire consequences.

Women's Murder Club: Lindsay SFPD detective, Cindy reporter/author, Claire Chief medical examiner, and Yuki state prosecutor.It’s pretty twisted sister in both scenarios and aspects are horrifying with the addition of threats and taunts amplifying the danger with the plot undergoing good twists and turns. As Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates whether the perpetrators are brilliant impostors or police officers gone rogue, she receives a chilling warning to back off. The plot is good, however there’s zero detective work and in the main the book lacks the he details and anticipation to suck me in. From hospital murders to explosive court battles, the Women's Murder Club takes on their most harrowing challenge yet.

Now AnnieLee may not live long enough to realize her dreams of stardom—or for the world to learn her true identity. 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. Your payment method will be charged immediately, and the product is expected to ship on or around April 11, 2023. When Blackout confronts Cindy, the plot really heats up, and there is much suspense around the possibility that she might not make it out of this situation alive.Not my thing, and I’m actually pretty sure at least some of it was written by AI; there are just some deeply strange sentences and phrases that an actual human probably would never say (at a pivotal moment, the serial killer yells the phrase, “My gun is mad! Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer's life was perfect - with her beautiful baby daughter and doting husband, Joe, she felt nothing could go wrong. As the most powerful family in California, Jenny has all the tools at her disposal to solve her father’s murder. What I would add though, is that I think it would be good to give Yuki a different kind of storyline. Days to Live: A CIA-agent bride is on her European honeymoon when she and her husband are poisoned—leaving her seventy-two hours to take revenge (with Duane Swierczynski).

While Lindsey and the crew are chasing the elusive killer, Cindy disappears, now everyone realizes that they are working against the clock to stop a madman and find Cindy before she becomes his next victim. Even the court case that Yuki was defending started off in what seemed like a one-sided expected outcome, but Patterson and Paetro found some ways to add in some worry and concern before the ending resolution.Flat characters, too many minor pointless characters I couldn’t tell apart, weird switches between 3rd person and 1st person narrative (she vs. Smart characters, shocking twists' Lisa Gardner'I couldn't turn the pages quick enough' Heidi Perks'Terrific, high-octane, really pacy' Jo Spain'A compelling read with great set pieces and, most of all, that charismatic cast of characters'Sun______________The Sunday Times bestsellerWill she live to see her twenty-first birthday? Detective Lindsay Boxer and reporter Cindy Thomas are connected to Burke, which means they have a more than vested interest in Blackout once his campaign of evil begins. The Housekeepers: A Los Angeles doctor trusts her two housekeepers, but when she’s murdered in a botched attempt to steal drugs, the pair of grifters vie to control their former employer’s estate—facing off against the Russian mob (with Julie Margaret Hogben). While Lindsay, Conklin, Brady and the rest of the detective team race to find the identity of this new killer, Yuki is also facing her own courtroom challenge in defending a who has been brutally beaten by her husband who left her to die.
