Being a Patterson fan, I just couldn’t wait to get his newest Women’s Murder Club book from the library (there were over 250 holds on it!) so I scored it for 50% off at BJ’s. I’ve read all the other Women’s Murder Club books in this series and this one did not disappoint. One can read this book on its own, but if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll enjoy tracing old themes and reading new ones.
The main plot in this story is the murders of some high profile San Francisco millionaires and their bizarre method of death: by snakebite. Tie in a subplot of the murder of a homeless man, some similar cold cases from 1982, and issues with everyone’s love lives (except Claire’s), and you’ve got this one in a nutshell!
I enjoy these quick reads – the perfect beach book for me!
This one has the added bonus of an excerpt from Patterson’s forthcoming book for Dec. ’09: “Witch and Wizard”.
I’ll give it 3 1/2 stars – it was a fun read!
