"10th Anniversary"

by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro, Women's Murder Club #10, AF, 2011, Playaway audio, 8hrs, rating=2.5

Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals--but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.
At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life--a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?
Lindsay's every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby begins interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family. With James Patterson's white-hot speed and unquenchable action, 10th Anniversary is the most deliciously chilling Women's Murder Club book ever. (book's blurb)

Distressing cases, twisty surprises, and predictable rites of passage ...

I wasn't crazy about the cases in this one ... too sexual and involved minors.  So this time around the romances in this installment didn't irk me as much.  I didn't mind the tidbits about the personal lives of the women in the murder club.  In fact, I've started to appreciate their character developments intertwined with the cases.  Again, I just didn't like the subjects in this novel ... bummer.


  1. Love James Patterson, but really haven't gotten into this series. I read the first one and didn't have a desire to go on. Anyway, thanks for commenting on my Blogoversary post. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. There's things you can do to make it easier to find your page. Just google it and you can find a lot of advice....

  2. @Annette: The Playaway audio is convenient & my library has a few from this series so that's how got exposed to this series. I keep thinking that if I started in the beginning I'd like it better?? Anyway, I liked #9 so I thought I'd give this a shot. --Thanks for the definition of SEO ..I'll google. :)


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
