4th of July - Maxine Paetro, James Patterson

She didn’t want to do it.  She really didn’t.  But, two kids were firing at her and Jacobi.  Jacobi was down.  Lindsay Boxer fired her weapon.  Now one teen is in the hospital and will be paralyzed for life … the other is dead.  It’s a tragedy, but these teens were not innocent.  They’d killed a couple of other teens, then whipped and slashed their buttocks before leaving a message at the scene, “Nobody Cares.”  Boxer’s mind went back ten years before to a John Doe whose murderer had never been caught.  The MO was the same.


Because of the shooting, Lindsay was placed on administrative leave.  She went to her sister’s house in Half Moon Bay where she could recoup and relax.  But trouble followed; there were more murders.  Now it seems someone may be after Lindsay.


I’ve read the first three in the Women’s Murder Club and this is one of my favorite series in the mystery and suspense genre.  This one did not disappoint.  There was plenty of action along with twists and turns that keep the reader guessing.  I love the group of women that Lindsay meets with.  They’re a hoot!  But, one of the things I like best about this series is that the situations are realistic and the people have human frailties.  No super heroes.  Some of the chapters are given over to the killer.  We don’t know the name of the person other than The Watcher.  And, The Watcher is not alone.  Rating: 4 out of 5.
