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.

Still love the Women’s Murder Club series and think it’s one of the best.
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!
