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.

Not so much with the narration....

I like the storyline, ABC is coming out with the Women's Murder Club drama this fall (2007 starring Angie Harmon as Lindsey Boxer). The characters are likable but the narration started to grate on me. I just didn't like how she read it especially when she was saying Jacobi's lines... I let it go after awhile and just concentrated on the storyline.

I'm glad I "read" it but I'm having a hard time wanting to download the rest of the series that I bought and only because of the narration.

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.)
