This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Still recovering from her husband's betrayal, Detective Lindsay Boxer faces a series of heart-stopping crimes and a deadly conspiracy that threatens to destroy San Francisco.
Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer's life was perfect. She had a beautiful child and a doting husband, Joe, who helped her catch a criminal who'd brazenly detonated a bomb in downtown San Francisco, killing twenty-five people. But Joe wasn't everything that Lindsay thought he was, and she's still reeling from his betrayal as a wave of mysterious and possibly unnatural heart attacks claims seemingly unrelated victims across San Francisco.
As if that weren't enough, the bomber she and Joe captured is about to go on trial, and his defense raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe's investigation. Not knowing whom to trust, and struggling to accept the truth about the man she thought she knew, Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a brilliant criminal puts her on trial.
Filled with the suspense and emotion that have made James Patterson the world's #1 bestselling writer, 16th Seduction is the Women's Murder Club's toughest case yet-and an exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish.
16th Woman's Murder Club
James Patterson never fails to hold my attention with his fast paced books. Bravo! As my husband said "Wow, you whipped through that one!"
If Mr. Patterson wants to retire, he should just retire. Maxine Paetra is now resting on a lucrative partnership and isn't putting any real work into writing. Between the two of them they are just capitalizing on their names. This is a short story sold at the price of a novel. While I have loved the WMC series, the books have become so formulaic and predictable that they aren't worth the bother. There's nothing new or exciting here. There is nothing depth. Even the renewal of the relationship between Joe and Lindsay was a yawn fest. Come on guys. If you're going to charge me $12.99 for a book, put some effort into it. For now, I'm over you.
Good Book - Not Good Enough
We anticipate that the next WMC book will be as good as the last. There are only a couple in the 16 books that have been "not as good" for me, as the rest, and this is one. I feel like I could tell when the other author was writing and to be honest the Terrorism stuff (this book and last) is a little unnecessary. I feel like I could have turned on the news for this story. I'd rather be entertained, not reminded. Maybe that was the point, I don't know, but I started reading these books for the fiction.
The secondary storyline was good. I feel like that one had a lot of potential.
