About this deal

I have been for years a fan of James Patterson's books ever since I discovered the 2nd book in the Women's Murder Club at a book sale. It's not very realistic (and yeah, I get that these novels sometimes have little to do with reality).

I had no emotional involvement in the ending and was left so disconnected to how everything was supposed to connect together in the end. Boxer and the rest of the Club try to work their respective angles, sometimes stepping on one another’s toes, but always able to find something worth discussing at their regular meetings.In this thrilling 2-book collection set, James Patterson takes readers on a roller-coaster ride with the Women's Murder Club, featuring two gripping installments - "20th Victim" and "21st Birthday.

The prime suspect is Tara's husband, but he tells a conflicting story that paints Tara as a wayward wife, not a missing person. They still convicted him, but there were no recriminations for Boxer or her team who effectively ruined a man’s life, before he took it in prison. She learns that Burke may have been stepping out on his wife with a teenage student, which does raise an alarm. Lucas is certain he has resumed hunting for victims, but with little to substantiate it, the DA moves ahead with murder charges.It will take all members of the Women’s Murder Club working together to solidify the truth, however murky and convoluted it might be.

Then another body of a young woman 🚺 is found, then the mother in her car 🚗 in the bay, and the husband's mistress is found dead. Meanwhile, the editing was sloppy, including students at a high school being in class on a Saturday, missing days, and Lindsay being in two places at once near the end of the book. When a young woman and her 16 month old baby were found murdered and washed up to shore, the husband is the main suspect. I did however have a little chuckle in this book as there was a comment about Lindsay and Claire being likened to Rizzoli and Isles. I liked Patterson and Paetro focusing on a major “A” plotline with a couple of “B” storyline developments with the recurring characters.Detective Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a young woman from a serial killer long enough to see her twenty-first birthday. As Lindsay, Cindy Thomas (crime reporter), Claire Washburn (chief medical examiner) and Yuki Castellano (assistant DA) – the Murder Club – met to hash out their theories and ideas on the case, more brutal murders were occurring.
