Product Description

Review

"A romp of a thriller ... packed with action ... it is a compelling read with some great set pieces and, most of all, that charismatic cast of characters. The book finishes with a strange shock ending - putting in place several threads for the tenth WMC novel. Can't wait." (Sun)

"I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator. He is always on the mark. I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down. - Larry King" (USA Today)

"Those who haven't read any of the novels in the Women's Murder Club series are cheating themselves." (BookReporter.com)

I have read all the Womens Murder Club books and this one is as good as, if not better than, the previous ones. There are two storylines running in parallel, but it soon becomes clear how they tie in together. One is about a cat burglar who is being blamed for a murder she did not commit. The other is about a "crazed madman" who is targetting and murdering women with children. Each of the stories had me on the edge of my seat wondering how they would be solved. I like the way the authors develop the chraacters more fully, and we learn more about them. As the books are published you begin to feel more and more a part of the group. As I say in my title I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting not even stopping to make a cup of tea. This proves that James Patterson has not lost his edge, although credit also needs to go to Maxine Paetro who co-wrote the book with Patterson. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Buy it now and read it. You will not regret it.

9th Judgement is the 9th book in the Women's Murder Club series. I still think book one of this series is my favourite, but despite (sometimes big) flaws, the rest of the series is good to, right up until book 8. 8th Confession was a joke. All the characters got turned on their heads, the writing was very high school, and the plots weak with little interest. I wasn't going to bother with this one until it was out in paper back, but my sister wanted it sooner, so having loved most of the series, I decided to give it one last shot.

In many ways, this is a huge improvement from 8th. It's got strong intertwining plots and the much more grown-up feel the rest of the series had before 8th again. The usual style for these books is two different cases, over lapping and sometimes connected, with Lindsay Boxer and her homicide team plus her girls, trying to solve them. There are two clear cases here, both of which get decent page time and explanation. Unlike JP's latest Michael Bennett book where it felt like barely padded plot, this one actually made sense. There was a reasonable depth to the story and it didn't jump around too much with great leaps of faith. If the book was these crimes alone, I probably would thought a lot more of it.

But for me, again, the characters were the big let down. Don't get me wrong, they're nothing like the high school idiots they were in 8th, they're much more themselves again. But Lindsay comes across much weaker and vulnerable in this book, like her job is suddenly too much for her instead of being her driving force like always. There are several times where she feels 'faint' and one point even where her partner has to catch her around the waist to stop her fainting outright.

I've read all of the Women's Murder Club novels - some were excellent (books 1-5 and book 7), some were awful (books 6 and 8) and I'm so glad I went with my gut on this one and bought it as I thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact I'd go as far as saying that this was my favourite of the whole series.

Like most of the others in the series, there's two main cases going on - the first is a psychopath known as "The Lipstick Killer" who is terrorising San Francisco by murdering mothers and their babies on the street and at random. The next is a cat burglar called "Hello Kitty" who is being framed for murder when a well known movie star shoots his wife following a robbery at their home. Lindsey and the gang have their hands full in this one, so there isn't a slow moment. Some of the scenes were so exciting I was flying through the pages as I just couldn't stop reading - a quick hour's read turned into a whole evening's binge and I had the book finished in 4 hours! Some bits of the story were a little predictable, maybe because I read a lot of James Patterson novels so I am very familiar with his formulas now, but that didn't stop it from being one of the best I've read from him for a while.

One thing I noticed in this book was that the main attention has been turned to Lindsay again, which is great as some of the other characters - Cindy and Yuki in particular - make the stories in the previous novels quite dull and I find these characters to be too arrogant and generally annoying, so didn't enjoy the ones when they were in the spotlight so much.

Although it is the ninth in the series, this could still be picked up by someone new to the Women's Murder Club novels and easily get into the characters and the gripping story.

* spoiler alert ** Ok,i love The Women's Murder Club series but this book does not deserve to be part of this series.All through the other books Lindsey Boxer has been a strong,no nonsense detective and yet in this book she is made to drive and walk about San Francisco topless,how many detectives would do that just to deliver some money to a mindless killer.You knew who the killer of the mothers and children was from the beginning so it was just a case of how he was going to get caught and then when he was finally stopped,the only reason given for his crimes was he did it because he could and that was it.
In the other case you already knew that the husband had killed his wife so there was no mystery to that case neither.
Then only reason i gave this book two stars is because of the way the killer of the mothers and children was finally caught or not as the case may be, apart from that this book is not worthy to be part of what has been a great series so far.Thank goodness that books 10,11 and 12 are very good and have restored my faith in this series.
