Booklist Review

The tenth entry in Patterson's Women's Murder Club series opens with the wedding of Sergeant Lindsay Boxer to her longtime love, Joe Molinari. Soon after exchanging vows with Joe, Lindsay is on the trail of a missing baby whose 15-year-old mother was found wandering the streets in the rain, dazed and disoriented. ADA Yuki Castellano is trying an important case that could make or break her career; it involves a wealthy doctor accused of fatally shooting her unfaithful husband in cold blood. Yuki is none too pleased when Lindsay looks into the case at the behest of the woman's attorney, but Yuki has a secret of her own: she's started dating Lindsay's boss. Reporter Cindy Thomas is working on a story about several women who have been drugged and raped in the San Francisco area, but the big lead she uncovers threatens to make her a target. With the quick pace and short, sharp chapters readers have come to expect, Patterson and Paetro's latest will keep fans of the series turning pages long into the night. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Ten is a landmark number, and the bestselling Patterson franchise will make sure fans of the Women's Murder Club series celebrate with this anniversary thriller. The web site even offers a recipe for a MURDERtini. --Huntley, Kristine Copyright 2010 Booklist
