The newest Women's Murder Club thriller--and instant #1 New York Times bestseller
A series of shootings exposes San Francisco to a methodical yet unpredictable killer, and a reluctant woman decides to put her trust in Sergeant Lindsay Boxer. The confidential informant's tip leads Lindsay to disturbing conclusions, including that something has gone horribly wrong inside the police department itself.

The hunt for the killer lures Lindsay out of her jurisdiction, and gets inside Lindsay in dangerous ways. She suffers unsettling medical symptoms, and her friends and confidantes in the Women's Murder Club warn Lindsay against taking the crimes too much to heart. With lives at stake, the detective can't help but follow the case into ever more terrifying terrain.

A decorated officer, loving wife, devoted mother, and loyal friend, Lindsay's unwavering integrity has never failed her. But now she is confronting a killer who is determined to undermine it all.

James Patterson definitely phoned this one in. I don't typically try to solve the crimes while reading his books. I just enjoy the read. However both these crimes were so easy to solve, I had them solved maybe half way through the book. Very predictable. Not his best work.

I did not like this book at all. It’s two separate short stories made into one book. Also, notice each “chapter” is exactly 3 1/2 pages. I think we’ve got some author cruisin’ going on.

Good book! I think the book focused more on Yuki and her case in this book but overall it was a good quick read.

Not my favorite in the Women's Murder Club series, but I think fans of James Patterson will still enjoy reading this.

Usually the wives mystery club is awesome. This was okay but really slow at first. Love the characters. Kind of disappointed even in the ending. Hopefully the next one will be better. Maxine Paetro is one of the best that work with Patterson.

James Patterson and Maxine Paetro's Women's Murder Club books are always great reads. THE 17TH SUSPECT is no exception. There are four story lines in this one: two crimes; one relationship crisis; and one health issue. The two crime story lines are unique and interesting all by themselves. That said, this book isn't quite up to the very high standard of most of the previous ones. Usually the members of the Women's Murder Club are all active in a book, problem solve together, and sometimes even collaborate to solve crimes. In this book, it's all about Boxer and Yuki, and the crimes they are working on have no overlap. Meanwhile Claire makes only a couple cameo appearances and Cindy is almost entirely missing from the book. The ending also left me wondering if this might be an end to the series or foretelling a hiatus. I won't spoil it by a 'reveal,' but you may see wonder too. Enjoy!

I really enjoy the Womens Murder Club books. They are fast paced, have strong characters, and well thought out. A pleasure to read.
