Publisher's Summary

After losing one of its own, Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club make a courageous return for their fourth and most chilling case ever, one that could easily be their last. A young girl is killed in crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity. While awaiting trial, Lindsay escapes to the beautiful town of Half Moon Bay, but the peaceful community there is reeling from a string of unspeakable murders. Working with her friends in the Women's Murder Club, Lindsay finds a link between these killings and a case she worked on years before: an unsolved murder that has haunted her ever since. As summer comes into full swing, Lindsay battles for her life on two fronts: before a judge and jury as her trial comes to a climax; and facing unknown adversaries who will do anything to keep her from the truth about the killings, including killing again. It all comes to a head before the big annual 4th of July celebration on the waterfront at Half Moon Bay. Patterson fine-tunes the tension like never before in this heart-racing new novel in the best-selling detective series to debut in years.

Nice addition to series...

I would definite recommend reading this series in order, 1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree then this one. And luckily Audible has them all. This is a nice addition to the series and kept my interest throughout. I enjoyed the narrator as well. Listened to them with friends on a car trip to Oklahoma....time sped by.

Now it's getting on track.

What made the experience of listening to 4th of July the most enjoyable?

This is the one that I originally started with about five years ago that brought me into the series. It is still a very entertaining story. There is violance, but it is absolutely necessary to the storyline. The gratuitious sex and bigotry have been really toned down and no longer interrupt the flow of the plot. I am anxious to start # 5.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 4th of July?

It is all in the twist and revelation. Don't spoil it for others.

What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

Most of her voices are distinct and easy to follow.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

They don't invite me to "reality" farces because I don't make a fool of myself over every little thing. However, in the last ten chapters I had a hard time putting the book down, which is about as intense as it gets for me.

Any additional comments?

Once again the mood music covers the narration in places.
