Description

The Fourth of July

In a late-night showdown after a near-fatal chase, San Francisco police lieutenant Lindsay Boxer has to make an instantaneous decision - and sets off a chain of events that leaves a police force disgraced and an entire city divided. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay and her friends in the Women's Murder Club battle for her life on two fronts: before a judge an jury as her trial comes to a climax, and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth.

The Fifth Horsemen

It is a wild race against time as Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer and the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, attorney Yuki Castellano, lead an investigation into a string of mysterious patient deaths and reveal a hospital administration determined to shield its reputation at all costs. While the hospital wages an explosive court battle that grips the entire nation, the Women's Murder Club hunts for a merciless killer among its esteemed medical staff.

The 6th Target

While Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano prepares to prosecute the toughest trial of her life, the city is in the grip of a chilling crime spree. Children of well-to-do families are being abducted. But the kidnappings are followed by devastating silence -no demand for ransom. Working frantically with her new partner, Lindsay Boxer struggles to find the connection that will help them make sense of these horrific crimes.

Three mediocre novels for the price of one

This volume contains three short novels in the Women's Murder Club series (Books 4,5 and 6). The first novel in this group (#4) is good and books five and six are pretty bad. Nevertheless, all three keep you interested and for a long drive, these books are worth considering.

Decent for the money but not terrific

Three books, the first I thought was very good and even the second was decent - the trial, developmenet of a new character, etc. The third, book 6th in the series was TERRIBLE. It seemed to me that it was two stories mushed poorly into one book. The ferry shooting and subsequent trila were needless. I found myself fast forwarding through most of those sections. On their own perhaps an interesting story but it felt like it was supposed to become something and didn't. I enjoy mystery and thriller and not so much courtroom dramas. The kidnappings were far more interesting and if that story line hadn't been broken up with the other silliness it would have been better. It's a part of the series so you should read it if you're already 5 in but I'm about to buy the next one and I hope it's better. I hope this doesn't go the way of Alex Cross and get so wrapped up in the personal over developed dramas of the characters that the mystery part falls second.

Too short!

I didn't realize that these were ABRIDGED versions of the original books and was very disappointed when I found that out. If I had known that ahead of time, I would have waited to get the unabridged versions.

Good Story. Fair Narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The only thing that I would change would be the narrator. The story is fine, but the narration left much to be desired.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that three books were included for the price of one.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator just didn't have the ability to clearly differentiate her vocal tone between characters. I guess I am spoiled by Susan Eriksen who narrates the J.D. Robb "In Death" series.

Do you think Women's Murder Club Box Set, Volume 2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There are several more follow up books to this set.

geat stories,awesome narating!

What did you love best about Women's Murder Club Box Set, Volume 2?

I always love the plots of the mysteries and the way he gets into their personalities and is having them grow with each story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lysnsey,because she is always acting like such a tough cop but deep down we see her soft side showing more and more.

What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her emphasis on the emotions of the characters she really seems to nail them.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How will the girls catch the bad guy now?The way they always do (Team Work)

Any additional comments?

I actually started to be a fan by playing womens murder club games and then I started listening to audible books and really enjoy these books!!! Thanks Audible and James Patterson!!!

Great story, Hate the music and sound effects

James Patterson is my favorite author and I LOVE and Women's Murder Club. This is not my first time "reading" the series, and I even like the narrator... mostly. I DO NOT love the sound effects and music that for some reason have been added in. They are not necessary and, in fact, are VERY distracting and make it hard to pay attention to the story.

I am a bipolar woman....

this book was devastating, and very difficult to finish. it really brought me to tears and broke my heart because I've been a James Patterson fan for a long time. Although the women's murder Club books have never been the quality of other books I've read by him, I still like them enough to listen until now. I'm shocked actually... the author's take Liberty with the use and abuse of mental illness. I've been living with bipolar my entire adult life. I have attempted suicide 3 times been committed to psychiatric units 4 *, I've lost jobs and been unable to care for myself more times than I can count. I've been stigmatized, I've been scared and I hear voices which are very similar to the Maine antagonist. his description of voices he hears were so dead on it scared me. the entire group of good guys was very inappropriate. I think the author's could have handled their story with more compassion and utilized more of the talents they have with stories and words. that absolutely could have been a much better buck if it wasn't like a factory for the authors just consumed with quick sloppy writing in order to turn profit. people probably don't read these reviews. I don't very often. I'm positive that authors wouldn't be reading this but I needed to stand up for mental illness. could have told the same story... that's line from Yuki about her being bipolar sometimes... Oh we all hear voices... I don't know just a shity book and I encourage you not to support it take a stand. decide not to read it or listen to it just in support of yourself or people you love or have any compassion toward that suffer and living with mental illnesses

full of action

This is my first experience reading a book series and enjoyed the concept and will certainly consider reading more. I enjoyed the character familiarity, especially since typically so much time is spent laying out the foundation of the books cast and characters to the reader. In a book series, the author can regain that time spent. This book was full of stories, from start to finish there were 2 separate storylines running simultaneously. One about a court trial proceedings, the other about the investigative detective storyline. I enjoyed this, it kept you interested and wanted to read more.

I didn't like that the book chapter references didn't match the narrator's chapter reference. In other words, the narrator would say chapter 3 and the audible reach chapter 9.

Overall I enjoyed this box set and beleive I will buy and reach more.

Why are there ridiculous sex scenes?!

There are times sex in a book adds to the story, but do we really need a play by play? Disgusting.

sehr sehr viel Spannung zu einem guten Preis

über 23 h in einem Hörbuch, wirklich toll!
Die "women's murder club"-Bücher sind super, sehr spannend, komplex und hervorragend gelesen.
Bei der Reihe ist es auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert, mit Band 1 anzufangen, da oft auf vorangegangene Bücher verwiesen wird.
Kleine Anmerkung: die vielen Kapiteleinteilungen machen nicht wirklich Sinn - da beim vor- und zurückspulen ohnehin in viel zu großen Einheiten gesprungen wird.

wunderbar - mit leichten Abstrichen

das nenne ich mal gute Preis-Leistung. Das gesamte Hörbuch war Spannung pur.
was mich manchmal irritiert hat war die Leserin und die zig-Hundert Kapitel, bzw. Kapitelansagen, was aber nicht den Hörspass trübt.
Sehr empfehlenswert!
