Review The 17th Suspect (Women’s Murder Club) by James Patterson, Maxine Paetro

The newest Women’s Murder Club thriller–and instant #1 New York Times bestseller

A series of shootings exposes San Francisco to a methodical yet unpredictable killer, and a reluctant woman decides to put her trust in Sergeant Lindsay Boxer. The confidential informant’s tip leads Lindsay to disturbing conclusions, including that something has gone horribly wrong inside the police department itself.

The hunt for the killer lures Lindsay out of her jurisdiction, and gets inside Lindsay in dangerous ways. She suffers unsettling medical symptoms, and her friends and confidantes in the Women’s Murder Club warn Lindsay against taking the crimes too much to heart. With lives at stake, the detective can’t help but follow the case into ever more terrifying terrain.

A decorated officer, loving wife, devoted mother, and loyal friend, Lindsay’s unwavering integrity has never failed her. But now she is confronting a killer who is determined to undermine it all.

Editorial Reviews


“The reader never (and I mean never) knows from one page to the next what might happen. That continues to make this series successful and suspenseful.”―

“I can’t believe how good Patterson is . . . He’s always on the mark.”

Molly’s Mom:
Found the book very good at least the second half. The Yuki story line was dragging quite a bit at first but finally picked up. Did find the first half slow.
Still love the Women’s Murder Club series and think it’s one of the best.
Speed Reader:

This is the 17th women’s murder club novel that I’ve read. That is to say I’ve read them all — they are JUST THAT GOOD!

The 17th Suspect has all of the suspense and drama you have come to expect from the series, while preserving the warm relationships between the “girls” and with the men in their lives.

The only bad thing about the Murder Club series is the length of time you have to wait for the next book. BRING ON THE 18th James and Maxine!

Emma Marx:
I know these ladies well by now because James Patterson introduced them a long time ago, and they tell a stories of murder and love and loyalty between these women who are in law enforcement except for one who writes for a newspaper. James Patterson does not disappoint.
