The Ninth Judgment by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

Little Brown sent me an ARC of this book for review. Since Patterson's name is on it, I knew it would be fast paced and thrilling.

I first found this series when a person who follows my blog and requests books asked me if I had read the Women's Murder Club series. When I told her no, she sent me copies of the earlier books to read. So when I saw this one come up for review, I nabbed it!

I've grown fond of Detective Lindsay Boxer, even though she does have the usual human frailties. She's an effecient, effective cop and fiercely protects those she loves.

She ends up in tangled mess in this book. There's a jewel thief, a murderous movie star, and a killer with a vendetta against women and children.

Lindsay and the other Women's Murder Club members are emotionally traumatized by the children's murders. Even the hardened male cops have a problem with it. But the killer is very elusive and knows how to hide himself from discovery.

In the meantime, she has the other two crimes to work on as well.

Get ready to sit down and consume a book. I doubt you'll put it down until you've read the whole thing.

This book will be on the bookstore shelves at the end of April.

If you'd like my ARC of this book, leave a comment here on the blog and then email me at info @ (take out the spaces) and tell me your name and address and why you'd like to get this book. I'll keep the drawing open about a week.

Hi Jo Ann. Like you, I love the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. I am fond of Alex Cross, too. I was unaware that the 9th had been released. You like Lindsay Boxer; I'm fond of the coroner. . . I believe her name is Claire. I could be wrong in that. Heck, they're all good. :)

Thanks for your review. It sounds like another great Patterson story.



I do read your reviews and I think it is awesome that you can get to read so much! keep up the reviews!


I wasnt aware that the ninth was even out! I read the first 3 and then quit when we moved and now, I have begun to read them all starting at the beginning! I love Lindsey and am excited to be reading them all this time! even mom loves them! Thanks again for such a great review!
