Publisher's Summary

This presentation features an exclusive special introduction by James Patterson. Master of suspense James Patterson continues the Women's Murder Club series with this sequel to 1st to Die.
The sensational killings that have rocked San Francisco appear to be unrelated except in their brutality. But detective Lindsay Boxer senses there's some thread connecting them all. She calls her friends in the Women's Murder Club together to see if they can discover what it is.
Working with Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas, Assistant District Attorney Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay discovers that there is indeed a link. Each of the victims had a close relative in a particular profession, a profession that sends a chill through Lindsay's heart.
The partners in the Women's Murder Club deduce where the killer is likely to strike next and bait a trap that can't be resisted. But if their calculation is wrong, the consequences will be lethal. And there will be no second chance.

A true 2nd chance.

If this was a stand alone story or the first in a series it would be a much better story, but the fact that Mr. Patterson forgets so much of the history of the first book detracts from the main character, Lindsay Boxer. While the story itself is solid and has its twists, as it should, like any good story, I find that I was disappointed with the characters more and more as the story went on. Characters that are supposed to the the brightest in the city are missing glaring clues and not doing simple things to catch the bad guy. Now I realize that some of these simple things would make a "bad read", so I do not hold that against Mr. Patterson, but ,without revealing a "spoiler", no one picked up on Lindsay's savior (By the time you get to it, you'll already figure it out!).

If I could have given this story a three and a half, I would have, but since I have enjoyed other pieces of Mr. Patterson's work before, I decided to give him a "true 2nd Chance." The first book in the series I really enjoyed, this book is a mild let down, hopefully a third book in the series will be forthcoming to see if this will be a series that I will continue enjoy.

Painful pastime

If this was a decent novel to begin with, the narration ensured that I would ever know. The whiny voice, exaggerated diction and overemphasis without relevance to the action distracted from the text and made listening a painful process, like a finger nail on a chalkboard.
