When I got to the end of `8th Confession' I thought to myself - what was the point? From start to finish pretty much nothing happens - Lindsey Boxer and Richie Conklin, with the help of Claire, are on the case where rich figures from San Francisco are being murdered by snake bites while at the same time they are juggling another case which has been brought about by demanding Cindy, where a homeless man who is thought of as a saint in the area has been viciously killed. Yuki is also in the courtroom trying to convict a teenage rich girl who has bludgeoned her father to death and left her mother in an extremely bad state, whilst out of the courtroom she is falling in love with the man of her dreams. It sounds like there is a lot of stuff going on, but there isn't.

Both of Boxer and Conklin's case are wrapped up really easily and how they didn't spot who the killer was earlier is beyond me, as is Yuki's case which falls flat with a effortless conclusion halfway through, obviously just leading it to the love interest which actually could have happened without the whole court case anyway. None of the characters evolve at all, they just become more annoying than ever (especially Cindy and surprisingly Jacobi who I actually used to like in the previous books). Lindsey and Conkiln's forbidden love is equally as irritating and unnecessary as ever.

It's such a shame that this is so poor as after the appalling 6th Target, 7th Heaven bought the series back up to scratch, being possibly the best of them all, but this has again bought the series back down again as this is just a real waste of time.

The Woman's Murder Club series has had it's ups and downs. Different people will differ in opinions on which are the bad though. For me, 4th Of July was the worst but I've really enjoyed the past three books. I had been really looking forward to this one but it didn't live up to expectations. The plot about the 'saint' homeless man was dull and the rich and famous people being killed wasn't much better.

This book also finally sees Lindsay Boxer choosing between the men in her, boyfriend Joe and partner Richie Conklin. I'm not going to give away what happened though. It was something that needed to be resolved but I don't think the way it was done was really the best way. Or even a particularly good way. Not many of the personal relationships in this book follow the past few books very well at all.

The storyline with Yuki and her new man is good, with a surprising twist near the end which leaves lots of open threads for the next book. Claire is hardly seen at all. There are a few short scenes with her working with Lindsay, but when with the girls, she's just there, she doesn't say much and there isn't much shown between Lindsay and Claire which, with everything going on in Lindsay's personal life, doesn't make much sense. Claire has always been the person Lindsay goes too, but apparently not now. I've never really liked Cindy, she's annoyed me and is worse than ever in this book, and there is a lot of her too. Richie Conklin is another matter. His character seems to have switched from the nice guy he is, to someone totally different and willing to screw his partner over, again something that doesn't come close to fitting with previous books.

I fully admit to being obsessive about books and their characters and yes I realise that people change and everything.

James Petterson has been writing a series of books which are part of the 'Womens Murder Club' series.They involve four women who have all featured heavily in previous books. They are Lindsay, Cindy, Yuki and Claire.

The story for the 8th Confession focuses on two main threads. The first is a murder of a "saintly" homeless man and Cindy who is a journalist finds her senses telling her to keep on at this, and she is convinced there is a story there. The other thread features the serial murders of the rich society movers and shakers in the strangest manner. It appears they have all been killed by a snake bite. Lindsay and her partner Rich Conklin need to investigate the murders to find who is behind these strange killings. Yuki meanwhile is juggling her job as an attorney and falling for what she thinks is the man of her dreams.

I read this book just as quickly as other James Patterson books and found the pace pretty good but think that is down to the writing style as opposed to anything else. HoweverI have to say I still felt thatit was still a dissapointment. The plot just didn't seem to be there. It seemed to lack any substance and the four main characters that have featured in this series seem to have all changed personalities. What I loved about this series of books is that with each book you read you learn a little more about each of them. With this book, not only was the storyline lacking but so were the characters of the four women that us fans have come to know and love.

Usually the girls are brought together and fight together. This time round, you get glimpses of them all and only Lindsay and Cindy really stands out as being part of the plot line. Yuki and Claire barely get a mention. I am beginning to wonder if James Patterson has lost his touch with this series or if he is churning them out far too quickly?
