Publisher's Summary

The Women's Murder Club is stalked by a killer with nothing to lose.
San Francisco Detective Lindsay Boxer is loving her life as a new mother. With an attentive husband, a job she loves, plus best friends who can talk about anything from sex to murder, things couldn't be better.
Then the FBI sends Lindsay a photo of a killer from her past, and her happy world is shattered. The picture captures a beautiful woman at a stoplight. But all Lindsay sees is the psychopath behind those seductive eyes: Mackie Morales, the most deranged and dangerous mind the Women's Murder Club has ever encountered.
In this pulse-racing, emotionally charged novel by James Patterson, the Women's Murder Club must find a killer - before she finds them first.

What the Critics Say

"I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator. He is always on the mark. I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down." (Larry King, USA Today )

What Happened to the Women's Murder Club?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator. The narrator made this group of professional women sound like giddy teenage girls, excited about everything. Was really hard to listen to.


What could James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Better writing. Dialogue was silly at times. Homicide detective at a murder scene comforting the victim's relative and discovers she's late to an event so her hubby drops by with her dress. And OMG he remembered to bring her shoes! Really?!!


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of January LaVoy?

Susan Erickson, who narrates J.D. Robb's In Death series.


What character would you cut from Unlucky 13?

Yuki - her storyline didn't add anything to plot.


Any additional comments?

This is the first book out of the Murder Club series that I didn't enjoy. The characters seem to have lost their edge.

Pointless Waste Of Time

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I... don't think anybody will enjoy it more. Someone reading book #13 in a series will be reading it to continue the story. This book was so boring it invented new ways to be boring I had no idea could even exist. By book 13, either know your characters well enough to write them well, or know your audience well enough to understand how the reader will react to a void in the story we've been reading for 12 enjoyable novels. This contained no character development, no suspense, no surprise, nothing to connect with the listener and no reason to exist at all. Brady is a major player in this book, but we still know nothing more about him than we did before, other than a totally impulsive and out of the blue decision at the beginning of the book. Everybody else remains entirely the same, in the same kind of situation, with the same struggles, the same jobs... nobody even seems to have aged - even baby JULIE. Man. Just... huge waste of time.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was fine; Ms. LaVoy turned in good character representations as per her usual.
