The Women's Murder Club takes on two deranged killers, but Detective Lindsay Boxer begins to wonder if the mysterious case is also breaking apart her closest friendships.
During an intimate dinner party, a cat burglar breaks into the home of A-list actor Marcus Dowling. When his wife walks in on the thief, the situation quickly teeters out of control, leaving an empty safe and a lifeless body.
The same night, a woman and her infant child are ruthlessly gunned down in an abandoned garage. The killer hasn't left a shred of evidence, except for a foreboding and cryptic message: WCF, the letters written in blood-red letters.
With two deranged killers on the loose Detective Lindsay Boxer calls on the Women's Murder Club to help her stop the insane killers. But someone is leaking information to the press-details that only those on the inside could know. As allegations fly that Lindsay is the source, she has to wonder: how much she can trust her closest friends?

I found this to be better than several of the previous instalments in this series. I still don't like the superhuman qualities attributed to the main character, though

Read this in a day. Good read.

I enjoyed this book with it's many twists and turns although I think it could have been written without the sex scenes and not lost anything. Who needs to read about a policeman having sex with his girlfriend in the back seat of a car in a murder mystery story?

10s bigger than 9 !
So, the next book (10th ...) has a major job, to keep up with 9th Judgement !
9th had some astonishingly GOOD story lines, surprises and was an easy & enjoyable filled book.

A good thriller. Up to James Patterson's mystery standards. He needs to stay away from science fiction and pseudo history and stick to what he does best---mysterys

I love the Women's club series,always a very interesting read with lots of twists and turns. Shows that women can play with the big boys too. Couldn't put this one down!!

I expected better of James Patterson. I love the ladies club, but you could not tell who was a part of the club and who was not. Plot was good, the chase with Lindsay and the Lipstick Killer was just not realistic.

It is an Okay book to read but not the best of James Pattersons books.....

This is not one of James Patterson best series.

James Patterson does a better job when he writes on his own
