Sunday Synopsis

The 17th Suspect (Women’s Murder Club #17)The 17th Suspect by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the story line and writing of this, the 17th book in the Women's Murder Club series. Usually, by the time an author gets to number 7, 8, 12 in a series, the writing becomes predictable and dull. In fact, the 16th wasn't that impressive, but I love James Patterson and the characters of this series, and I have to say this book was better than I expected.

There are two major plotlines in this novel as well as a few subplots. Sergeant Lindsey Boxer of SFPD, gets involved in a series of shootings of homeless people. She crosses some jurisdiction boundaries, encounters personal conflicts, and contends with health issues as she tries to solve the mysterious murders.

Assistant DA Yuki Castellano takes on a court battle unlike any other she has dealt with thus far: a woman accused of raping a man. Is it a battle worth fighting for, or is there something her client is hiding?

Cindy and Claire take a backseat to Lindsey and Yuki in this installment, but they are there to support their friends as they take on cases that have become personal to them. Credit goes to Maxine Paetro, who co-authors with Patterson, for staying true to the characters and keeping the reader guessing. This was a very fun read!
