Jacket Flap: The best-selling new detective series of the past 10 years just ot scarier. Detective Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club makes a courageous return for their 4th and most chilling case ever -- one that could easily be their last.

In a late-night showdown after a near-fatal car chase, San Francisco police lieutenant Lindsay Boxer has to make an instantaneous decision: in self-defense, she fires her weapon -- and sets off a chain of events that leaves a police force disgraced, an entire city divided, and a family destroyed. Now everything she's worked her entire life for hinges on the decision of 12 jurors.

To escape scrutiny during breaks from her trial, Lindsay retreats to the picturesque town of Half Moon Bay. But soon after her arrival, a string of grisly murders punches through the peaceful community. There are no witnesses and there is no discernible pattern. But a key detail recalls a case Lindsay worked on as a rookie years before -- an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. 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 and jury as her trial comes to a climax, and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings -- including killing again.

James Patterson fine-tunes the tension as never before in this breathtaking addition to the best-selling detective series to debut in a decade.

Journal Entry 2 by ReadingGal79 at Antioch, Illinois USA on Wednesday, July 13, 2022
I finished reading this book yesterday (7/12/22). Jill's death in the 3rd book upset me so much that I wasn't going to read this series. But in light of the holiday, I decided to give it another try. Not only does Claire, Cindy & Lindsay's celebration of Jill land Lindsay into some court trouble but Jill is replaced by Yuki. So did Maxine Paetro dislike the character she created enough to remake her?
