Publisher's Summary

Four women - four friends - share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.
But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these women form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand.
1st to Die is the start of a blazingly fast-paced and sensationally entertaining new series of crime thrillers.

Skip the Prologue

I really enjoyed listening to 1st to Die and found myself staying in my car to finish chapters many times after arriving at my destination. I recommend skipping over the prologue (maybe read it last). It was unnecessary, and it made it painfully obvious that in the end, Chris -- I'll stop now. The author can spoil it for you, but I won't. Trust me. Skip over the first four minutes. (She's an inspector with SFPD, the only woman, divorced, and looking back to the "honeymoon murders". Now you have not missed anything crucial.)

Boring, unrealistic and predictable

1/2 star for a good start, but it didn't last. I've never felt compelled to write a review, as most books I choose are right on the money regarding the previous reviews. This one though. Maybe it was the unabridged version, maybe it was the narrator, maybe it was the plot. No, it was all of these. No plot, narration terrible, book too, too long. Stick with Alex Cross. Patterson's attempt at female bonding is unrealistic and the plot, what little there is, is very predictable. Gave up at 5 hours, and I don't care who did it.
