Imagine a killer who thinks, "What is the worst thing anyone has ever done?"--and then goes far beyond it. Now imagine four women --a police detective, an assistant DA, a reporter, and a medical examiner --who join forces as they sidestep their bosses to track down criminals. Known as the Women's Murder Club, they are pursuing a murderer whose twisted imagination has stunned an entire city. Their chief suspect is a socially prominent writer, but the men in charge won't touch him. On the trail of the most terrifying and unexpected killer ever, they discover a shocking surprise that turns everything about the case upside down.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Two acclaimed narrators lend star power, drama, and polish to the first book in James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series. Together, Oscar winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and character actor Dylan Baker (The Good Wife) skillfully handle the thriller’s sizable cast, including the quartet of sleuthing heroines. The actors’ finely calibrated vocal performances helped us distinguish all the different characters, and kept us immersed in the book’s breathless, fast-paced plot as Patterson’s team of investigators races to hunt down a killer who is stalking newlyweds across the country.
