A terrible fire in a wealthy suburban home leaves a married couple dead and Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner Rich Conklin searching for clues. And after California's golden boy, Michael Campion has been missing for a month, there finally seems to be a lead in his case--a very devastating lead.
As fire after fire consume couples in wealthy, comfortable homes, Lindsay and the Murder Club must race to find the arsonists responsible and get to the bottom of Michael Campion's disappearance. But suddenly the fires are raging too close to home.
Frightened for her life and torn between two men, Lindsay must find a way to solve the most daunting dilemmas she's ever faced--at work and at home.
At the start of the gripping seventh Women's Murder Club thriller from bestseller Patterson and Paetro (after 2007's The 6th Target), San Francisco is still haunted by the disappearance of Michael Campion, the much-adored teenage son of a former California governor, three months earlier. Following up on a tip that Michael was last seen entering a prostitute's house, homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer and her new partner, Rich Conklin, are shocked when the hooker immediately confesses that Michael, who had a heart defect, died during sex and she disposed of his body. Lindsay's ADA pal, Yuki Castellano, is sure she has a slam-dunk case, but the trial soon takes a bizarre turn. Lindsay and Rich also scramble to track down a serial arsonist responsible for murdering a string of wealthy couples. Lindsay races to put the pieces together before the fires hit too close to home. In true Patterson style, the reader is privy to Lindsay's thoughts as well as the killers', ratcheting up the suspense an extra notch. Fans won't be disappointed with the twist at the end that not even Lindsay sees coming. (Feb.)

1 . Keep Them Coming!
Posted July 14, 2009 by Sherry , AnnawanAgain, James Patterson has let me escape into his Woman's Murder Club Mystery novels. I've read all of them and this one I found just as thrilling and entertaining as the other 6. The tension between Lindsey and Rich seems to be getting more intense and harder for her to ignore. WIll she lose a sure thing with Joe, or will she decide Rich Conklin is the love of her life? I can't wait to find out! I find all four women interesting and intriguing. I can't wait to start "The Confession"!

Posted January 31, 2009 by VC , Cincinnatithe 7th installment in the Women Murder series. This book is not the best of the series, but worth reading. In order to understand the concept, characters, and story line you must first read the previous book as this one wraps them all up. May be a bit confusing if you haven't read the previous books. Overall James Patterson delivered with this book as well!

Posted November 05, 2008 by Not thrilled , SacramentoI never felt a connection to the characters. The story kept jumping around and there were too many people introduced in the beginning. It was hard to follow who was saying what. I felt that a lot of description was missing from the scenes where the million dollar home owners were being murdered by fire. The "idea" of the book was good, I just couldn't get the movie going in my head.
